Is there a way to do this guys? I ve been googling for this but to. no avail, for a relatively hassle free way to do both. And I am possed off at apple for not allowing us to customise this in the first place. You can do it on the mac, why not on ios? What's this obsession with time anyway, it's a relic of ios as a mobile phone os, surely a tablet has to have a way to do this as not everyone desires to be constantly reminded of the time. If I wanted a clock I d buy one, I want an os, not a clock.:)

Thanks bro, no not jb at the moment, I was before, now I am waiting for jb for my iOS 5 iPad 2. I think I had tried springtomise before but it was not giving me the option to remove from the status bar, only the lock screen, thanks.

There is a status bar section in Springtomize where you can disable the clock, but as you said - no JB so not much help!

cheers bud, sooner or later they'll jb a5 and I ll be able to, it's good to know there is a way to do it, cause the last time i d jb'ed I couldn't find a way to do it, so it's good to know cause that's pretty much the only reason why i want to jb. Let's see then when a jb is coming our way.

No probs!

Well the jailbreak is looking more and more likely any day/week now (saying that it could be months ;p)

I would definately suggest Springtomize as one of the first tweaks to install, tons of customisable options.

Yes please explain the problem you were having.

The options to do this are in the section 'Status Bar' where you have the option to disable the padlock and the time.
When removing the time with this option it will remove it from SB and LS, I think that is the only way with Springtomize - please correct me if I'm wrong!
