    Easy way:
    Download and use MyStrings from Cydia.

    Manual way:
    1. Create a folder called 'No Slider Text.theme'
    2. Make a new folder inside that called 'Bundles'
    3. Make a new folder inside that called 'com.apple.springboard'
    4. Make a new folder inside that called 'en.lproj'
    5. Make a new file now (in a text editor) and copy the below text. Save the file as 'SpringBoard.strings'. Don't add .txt or .rtf to the end of the file extension.

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    	<key>AWAY_LOCK_LABEL</key>
    	<string> </string>
    	<key>CF_USER_NOTE_LOCK_LABEL</key>
    	<string> </string>
    	<key>SLIDE_TO_ANSWER</key>
    	<string> </string>
    	<key>SMS_LOCK_LABEL</key>
    	<string> </string>
    	<key>TIMER_LOCK_LABEL</key>
    	<string> </string>
    	<key>ALARM_LOCK_LABEL</key>
    	<string> </string>
    	<key>CALENDAR_LOCK_LABEL</key>
    	<string> </string>
    	<key>SLIDE_TO_CANCEL</key>
    	<string> </string>
    	<key>POWER_DOWN_LOCK_LABEL</key>
    	<string>slide to power off</string>
    	</dict>
    </plist>
    
    You can change the <string> part of each key to whatever you want the text to show. The very top one is the usual 'slide to unlock' one. A single space in the <string> gives the effect you initially asked for (no text shown).
    6. Via SSH, upload the .theme folder to /private/var/stash/Themes.[IGNORE]/
    7. Enable your new theme via Winterboard

    I think iStrings should do the trick. If not, try LockInfo.

    You can get both apps from Cydia, you have to pay for LockInfo after 30 days or so.

    Uhmm... guys... If you want to just simply bypass the Lock Screen, there is a Cydia app called "NoLockScreen"

    i used nolockscreen fro cydia, but it's quite
    buggy. so now i use activator instead, just set "single click home button" in "lock screen" menu to unlock a device..

    so when i want to use the phone, i just click home button to wake the screen up and press it again to unlock the device. it's much convinience than sliding the unlock slider.

    for my money, lockinfo is the way to go. No slide bar and lots of cool info on my lockscreen.

    when i show it to non-jailbreakers they always get jealous.

    Lockinfo gives the option to remove the slider, but you can still slide to unlock, and/or you can use Activator to unlock your iphone by double/clicking the home button...

    i do not know why, but no methods I've found have ever worked for me! i did andy9l's method and nothing worked. that pesky, ugly, flamboyant "slide to unlock" text remains!

    There's something in Cydia called "Un-unlockable". I'm not sure if it's iOS4 compatible, but it's working perfectly on 3.1.3. All it does is removes or overrides the "slide to unlock" graphic, the background you set isn't affected.

    Good to hear, enjoy
    !
    I also just learned something cool last night that I want to share. I have un-unlockable on my phone, as well as Activator (to use with Backgrounder, etc.). I set up Activator last night to work if I hold the home button on the lock screen, it will unlock the phone. Talk about friggin cool! :)

    based on recomendations in this thread, installed nolockscreen this morning.
    seems to work fine, but will keep my eyes open for some of the buggy behavior others mentioned.

    1 thing I found out right away, nolockscreen has to be disabled in sbsettings before syncing with itunes. otherwise it will 'slide to unlock' and cancel the sync.

    Via SSH or via ifunbox(usb cable) go there:
    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/English.lproj/SpringBoard.strings
    Open the last one with a text editor and look for this:
    Code:
    <key>AWAY_LOCK_LABEL</key>
    <string>slide to unlock</string>
    erase the 'slide to unlock' save and you are done(respring).Instead put your name there or anything you like.
