    How'd you do it? Share! Did you do it via SSH? And if so, where did you find the files?

    The slider file is called bottombarknobgray. It's in /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/TelephonyUI.framework. That's also the location of the other colored sliders, too.

    I'm actually after an invisible slider. I had it hidden on my 3GS and got used to a nice clean lock screen.

    While we're on the subject...you wouldn't happen to know where the image files for the signal bars and wi-fi bars are now would you? I've been searching to no avail.

    i'm trying to change mine, but i'm having a problem. when i try to open the images through WinSCP {pc}, they don't show up at all. and when i copy the folder to my desktop to back them up, or view them, they are just black.....here's what i mean:

    Out of curiosity, how did you get it to say 'Slide to kill'?

    I made my own string. A strings file is file in which tells the lock screen what to display.

    http://pimpmyi.wordpress.com/all-tutorials-and-pages/create-your-own-winterboard-theme/

    There is a sample stings file at the bottom of that article. It is a good read, and will give you a better understanding of how to modify things in winterboard via SSH

    Thanks for the image but when I tried it, it seemed roughly half the size. Is this the one you used or am I doing something incorrect. Thanks

    WHOOPS!

    That one was my fault. I have like 100 bullet bill images on my desktop from when I was trying to figure this out.

    Attached is the correct one. Sorry!

    Is Winterboard the only place you can use the strings file? I tried doing this and I cant get it to work. Is there a place I can just replace the standard strings file with my new one?

    Yes. There are two places to put string files. If you want to replace the standard system strings go to

    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/English.lproj/SpringBoard.strings

    That will replace it, but SAVE a copy of the original just in case.

    I personally do not like messing with the system files, so I chose to use winterbaord, so my strings file was in

    /var/stash/themes.xxx/lorax's theme/Bundles/com.apple.springboard/en.lproj/SpringBoard.strings

    I had to create those folders in Winterboard. I made the theme folder called 'lorax' in /var/stash/themes.JrBWVM and had to make all those folders inside of it. My sliders went into /var/stash/themes.xxx/lorax's theme/Bundles/com.apple.TelephonyUI/bottombarknobgray@2x.png

    Hi folks!

    Just came across this forum while searching for custom themes for IP4. After following that link on how to create your own Winterboard theme i only managed to get the wallpaper and lockscreen working.
    I tried custom sliders but to no avail unfortunately. I followed the guide step by step to the letter but they just didn't work. Would any of you be able to hazard a guess as to why this might happen?

    Thanks!
