    Do you know how to change the "slide to unlock" message and other system strings? I used to be able to do through customize but i haven't gotten that to launch in quite a while.

    Thanks,
    to change the"slide to Unlock", go to diskaid once again and go there:System//Lybrary//CoreServices//SpringBoard.app//French.lproj

    NOTE: FOR ME IT'S FRENCH.Iproj. Adapt it according to your language of course

    Once you're there, open SpringBoard.strings withe notepad for example. (save it)

    Then, go to the line;
    <key>UNLOCK</key>
    <string>Slide to unlock</string>

    Change the "slide to unlock" by whatever you want. Copy to your device the newly modified SpringBoard.strings.
    ideas:Enjoy!
    unlock me!...


    NOTE you can change any other string

    I'm sorry about this Mattewrotherham. it works perfectly with me .I live in France. Maybe there are different Setings according the country..

    WHat do you mean with"i have just tried a reboot DELETING all of the files in that folder"
    Have you deleted all the files which are basiclly in //DateFormats//?

    Sorry for the date once again. It works for me try to find another way.

    For The "slide to unlock" did you wanted to leave a blank?
    If yes, just put a space between the string><string. do no remove it.

    i dont mean the slide to unlock string. i mean the string on the UK.plist in the date formats folder. it looks like it cannot be done. only certain languages can be edited

    If your iPhone works even without the uk.plist dateformats. Why don't you only leave the "my" fr.plist dateformat?

    this is just an idea i'm not very skillfull with my iphone. I'm just explaining what i've done to remove the date from my lock screen.

    After library, there was no core services. Could it be named something else?

    So explain how to do it

    I've got the 2. FW and I did "erase" the Date on the lock screen.

    If someone is interested I could explain how to.

    Check the Photo of my lock screen.

    Can somebody upload the stock version of the Springboard.strings file

    After following the instruction above, I've messed up the string by replacing "slide to unlock".

    It's located at /System/Library/Coreservices/Springboard/English

    thanks in advance

    unzip this file ans you will find springboard.strings (uk)

    You have to modify the string and not the key

    <key>ALARM_SNOOZE</key>
    <string>Snooze</string>

    Modify here Snooze

    So I'm a little confused. Can this be done on the 3G or not? In the U.S.

    Hello Again All,

    I Finally found the way to erase the date. Even for People In the Uk, USA (if the Iphone is in English). Special Thank to my Friend Bister!

    To do that, dowload the uk.rar. Unzip it and you sould find a uk.plist

    Go to /System/Library/Frameworks/UIKit.framework/DateFormats/

    There, copy uk.Plist to your device.

    restart your device... you're done! Congratulations!

    NOTES: -don't forget to save and keep the original uk.plist
    - Do reset the date on your lock screen, simply delete the uk.plist and reset the original one!

    Thanx angain to Bister(from www.iphon.fr)

    I guess you made a mistake IgreenBerg check once more all the steps.

    Anyway, I Found a french tutorial( once again by Bister) to erase the Clock on the lock screen.

    To erase the clock, download the :transparentclock.rar

    You shall find a LockClock.ttf.

    Then, go to the Root of your device, to /System/Library/Fonts/Cache/.

    Don't forget to save the original LockClock.ttf on your computer.

    there, just copy the new LockClock.ttf ( it's a transparent font) and delete the other LockClock.ttf.

    Restart your device and that's it.

    Thanx To Bister iPhone, iPhone 3G et iPod Touch : blog iPhon.fr

    The date method is simply not working for me.

    Tried it again this morning.

    I'm not missing a step.
