    Okay, first of all, I am very very new and noob at this.
    Is there a idoit guide on this forum how to change the lockscreens and use the iPhone explorer.
    I've seen a lot of cool lockscreens, but I do not know how to do it. Can anyone make a idioit guide and give a link to one?

    As i have leart off this forum google is your friend iPhone SSH How To

    You will need to down load the lockscreen file from here/mac themes/web and ssh them to your phone.

    ifile can then be used to edit it from your phone.

    The very simplest way is to just:
    • Search Cydia for WinterBoard, install
    • Search Cydia for a lockscreen name of your choice, install
    • Enable the lockscreen via WinterBoard

    You will need to SSH when using some lower quality themes to change the configuration. Well written themes allow for configuration via Safari.

    Winterboard, SSH, themes, that can be overwhelming and time consuming for someone who is new to this...

    Berthelsen, depending on how you want it to look and how much you want to customize thing, it may be true you need to learn these things. However, if you just want to get some basic info on your lockscreen, you can do this with one Cydia app. There are a few and I am only familiar with one, I use Lockinfo. Do a quick search for, "Lockinfo vs" to find the others to compare to see if one of those will work of you.

    Even if they are a little basic for you, it can get you started while you figure everything else out.

    Good luck and have fun!

    Plenty of others allow for it, SlantedLock is an example that I remember using a while ago (I assume it's the same). My first 2 themes weren't originally Safari configurable as I was unaware of the possibility.

    My comment only refers to HTML lockscreens.
