Hey everbody,

I have been tweaking my phone over the past couple weeks messing with different themes :D. After all of this I noticed the date on my lockscreen is missing. The time is on the lockscreen just not the date. I have removed all tweaks affecting the lockscreen and removed all themes but the date is still missing. I found several links talking about deleteing the en.plist and then rebooting. However I am unable to find the plist in

/System/Library/Frameworks/UIKit.framework/DateFormats/

I do not have the DateFormats folder. Does anybody have any idea how I can get my date back on the lockscreen?


Thanks for your help,
Zack


PS: I tried using the app Lockscreen Settings and it adds the date in the wrong area (behind the clock).

I have been trying to get the date back over the past several weeks. Nothing I seem to do will bring it back. Does anybody have any idea?

Yeah its the identical problem I have. Sorry to hear but I'm glad at least I am not the only one with this problem. Have you had any luck?

I had this to. My problem was ThemeReady. It installed with a theme at one time, and I had removed it but the date stayed missing. I reisntalled it, went into the setting and turned the date back on, then I could remove ThemeReady again and the date is now back.

I thought I'd never find a solution but I wasn't too bothered since I use the LockInfo weather widget on the LS clock which added the date. Thanks so much for helping with this! :D

Glad you got it working, it drove me crazy until I figured it out.
