    Show you how to make what?
    Show me how make a font.
    I go to the web Absolute Fonts archive (the link you gave), download the font and put it in MyFonts folder. Then, open CGFontCache.splist with wordpad, change all the fonts in there the same name as the fonts in MyFonts folder. Next, I open LockBackground.html and change the font family the same name as the font in MyFonts folder too. But it won’t work.
    I don’t know if after download the fonts from Absolute Fonts Archive web, do I need to do modify them? Thanks in advance.

    Edit:
    I'm sorry Wickedfx. I'm quote wrong user name. I mean Opusandbill.

    You do need to change the font.

    Everything you need to know is on this thread. MacThemes Forum / How to port a font for the iPhone OS!

    There is also this very nice person making fonts for people for their iphone here. The person made a ton of really pretty lock screen fonts you can download and use with font swamp and is taking requests.

    Galaxygrrl Your link is to change the system font, what we are doing is something different completely.


    Newbee123 I believe you probably changed every font name on your CGFontCache.splist and you only need to change the bottom ones. refer to these pictures here that are also on the first page. Or tell me what the name of the font is your trying to use and i'll attach the plist for you that will work.

    Here you go, just replace yours with this and make sure the original font as you downloaded it is in your my fonts folder inside the cache folder.

    yeahhh, fianally, it worked. Thank you very much, Wickedfx.

    However, I still have some more problems. The date "Friday, January 23" is overlap the time "10:55:33". Could u show me how to fix it?
    Also, is there any way to make it transparent with the background? because it has a dark grey bar over my background.

    I don't know how to post my phone pic here.
    Thanks again.

    open the html file with a html editing progam (If you do not have look on the internet there are many free ones), look down towards the bottom where you see "table style" these are the numbers to change to move the clock to where ever you want.

    Change the value for "top" to move the clock up or down, the bigger the number the lower the position will be.
    Example the pic has a value of 125.

    I did figure out how to remove the date all together, place this file:
    RapidShare: Easy Filehosting

    here:
    System/Library/Frameworks/UlKit.framework/DateFormats

    Here are a few others mods I have been able to do, sadly no change of color yet.

    does anyone know how to the time disappear along with the top bar when the phone is unlocked?

    whenever i unlock the phone, the top bar glides up but the time remains visible as the phone unlocks. i hope that was a clear description, i don't know how else to word it.

    thanks in advance.

    You need to do this the way we told you in page 1 or you will end up with 2 clocks. You are supposed to replace the stock clock with a custom lockclock font that has no numbers in it (which makes the stock time disappear) The you upload whatever font you want and put it in the custom ringtone folder inside the cache folder. Then modify the cgfontlist and html page to make the custom one appear. it's all on page 1.
