I've been doing a lot of my own themes lately and there's one last thing I'm trying to learn how to do. How do I change the messages that are with the sliders ... the "slide to answer", "slide to unlock", etc. I know there have been apps in the past that let you modify them but I want to modify it within the theme itself so that when someone downloads it from Cydia it will be there.

If someone know how to do this please help me out. Or if someone knows of a theme on 3.0 that does this let me know the name so I can look at the way its built.

Thanks.

What you want to do is create a folder in theme called "Bundles" (if you don't already have one created. make another folder inside it called "com.apple.springboard". Then a final folder called "en.lproj"

Add this attached file in en.lproj and you can modify it to how you want.

Ok so the file looks like this (I opened with notepad):

"AWAY_LOCK_LABEL" = "";
"POWER_DOWN_LOCK_LABEL" = "" ;
"SLIDE_TO_ANSWER" = "" ;
"SLIDE_TO_LISTEN" = "" ;
"SLIDE_TO_CALL_BACK" = "" ;
"SLIDE_TO_CANCEL" = "" ;
"SMS_LOCK_LABEL" = "" ;


What exactly do I do to change the "slide to unlock"?

whoops...it's still early. (just woke up 30 mins ago) you need to add the text you want here

"AWAY_LOCK_LABEL" = "Slide to Unlock";

type what you want where it say's slide to unlock. the "" is what set to show the default string.

I'm assuming I'm supposed to be doing this ...

"SLIDE_TO_UNLOCK" = "Energize" ;


Right now it's just making the string blank.

No, scratch the SLIDE_TO_UNLOCK bit. It needs to be done under AWAY_LOCK_LABEL. Then it'll work. (like i said i just woke up shortly after i posted) :D

"AWAY_LOCK_LABEL" = "Energize";

you just need to modify the file to look like that...

The Bundles file goes in the main theme folder. Here's the folder order ...

Theme Name > Bundles > com.apple.springboard > en.lproj > PUT SPRINGBOARD.STRINGS FILE HERE.
