The search got me close but wasn't able to answer 2 questions:
1) where do I download a winterboard theme that has the tap to unlock png w/out installing WB itself?
2) which png in /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/TelephonyUI.framework do I need to replace?

thx

Simple, find the graphics (you could install it through cydia and snag the .deb via ssh to get the graphics).

Install the graphics into the appropriate folder via ssh. Best to rename the original graphics so they can easily be restored.

get "tap to unlock for iP4" then you can copy files out of themes via SSH.

then after you SSH files in,you can remove winterboard. I think?...lol

im going to try this now cause i now have a new HIDDEN 'custom tap to unlock' which i want to install without winterboard if possible.

ok i tried the above method and it does not work on iP4.

can anyone say for sure how to SSH a new slider lock into iP4 WITHOUT winterboard?

BTW if you want a HIDDEN 'tap to unlock' WITH winterboard(iP4).....just SSH this folder(attached below) into your Themes section.....i love this hidden tap to unlock but still would like it without winterboard.

I think you did it in the wrong order. Remove WB and then SSH.

I know it's not what you were looking for but, instead of a tap to unlock, I just have Activator set to unlock my phone with a double tap of the home button. Works perfectly, and no need for winterboard or SSH.

Like I said, I know its not what you were looking for, but if you can't find a solution that's my suggestion.

on the ip4 i think its different....there are @2x.png also in there to contend with.

i tried it several ways with and without winterboard still have not been able to SSH a slide to unlock without winterboard on an IP4.

from what im seeing it looked simple on a Previous IP but with IP4 there is more involved.

I need to change .pngs but also need to change the string in order to make the Tap to unlock actually work.

Id love to get rid of winterboard but still cannot,has anyone SSHd a slide to unlock yet on an ip4??

thanks guys!

interesting.....i never thought about this!

i tried it,setup activator to use a slide up from bottom jesture to unlock phone....works awesome! i then chose to hide the slide to unlock within lockinfo settings and its a nice clear lockscreen....pretty cool stuff.

i then tried to hold home button to unlock from activator..nice!

thanks

Okay, since this is so simple, how about you make a set of simple instructions with links and show us you can do this? I mainly wanted WB for the tap to unlock, so getting rid of it would be great.
