    Change Lockscreen Slider on Jailbroke iPad

    I wanted a different slider on my iPad1's lockscreen. However, no matter what I did, no slider theme from Cydia seemed to work. So, I Googled and discovered that the iPad has a different naming system for the lock screen slider .png images than that of the iPhone (for which most sliders are developed).

    The solution is to:

    1) Download a slider theme from Cydia

    2) Use iFile (or SSH in) to go to the slider's folder (and to the .png files) within Themes. The address is /var/stash/Themes…/[slider theme]/Bundles/com.apple.TelephonyUI

    [Note that your Themes folder will have a bunch of letter and numbers at the end of it - it's an iPad thing...]

    3) Inside the com.apple.TelephonyUI folder, you'll find three (3) .png images:

    bottombarknobgray.png
    bottombarknobgreen.png
    bottombarknobred.png

    4) Add a capital "T" to the end of the name of each of these three files (e.g. bottombarknobgrayT.png).

    Edit: The names of these three files have changed for iOS 5. They now end in ~ipad (e.g. Bottombarknobgray~ipad.png). Yep, Apple changed the naming conventions, so we have to adjust...
    5) Go to Winterboard (in Settings) and activate the slider theme

    6) Re-spring

    7) Use the new slider to open your iPad!

    With the addition of changing my slider text with "Slide to Unlock Killer" (also at Cydia) - I'm highly entertained. So, I had to share.

    Happy modding.

    P.S. If you have BlueiPad V2 theme loaded, make sure your slider theme is above it (in Winterboard), as it's slider mods will override the slider theme. Or just remove those .png files from BlueiPad V2. Whichever…

    Or you could just make your life easier, forget the slider, and download my NoSlider theme!

    I am thinking that iOS 5.0.1 has a new naming convention for the slider theme and/or graphic. I have added a capital T, - ipad, ~ipad, ipad, ipad1, and IPAD, right before the .png. I still end up with the same ole grey arrow. I didn't try iPad.
    Do you know where in the other part of the OS resides the slider graphic so I can deck it's naming? I know better than to mess with the files there. My version says 5.0.1 (9A405).
    In the winterboard theme BlueiPad by JMG there is the graphic that changes the text color to be blue, "slide to unlock". Since that works, I'm in the right folder.

    The actual (stock Apple) address for these icons is:

    The location for the slider images is: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/TelephonyUI.framework.

    I looked there on my iPad and the name are now (for iOS 5.0.1):

    bottombarknobgray~ipad.png
    bottombarknobgreen~ipad.png
    bottombarknobred~ipad.png

    If those are the names you are trying, and it's not working, then (1) doublecheck your spelling and letter casing (maybe you have a stray capital letter?).

    Or, (2) download and install (from Cydia) the [free] tweak iWipe Cache. Then, when you run it, it'll respring the iPad while cleaning out the image cache. It may be that is what is causing the iPad to not show the changes.

    That's all I can think of at the moment. I'm not using this theme idea any longer (I have Move2Unlock and don't even show a slider now). So, if this works, yay. If you still have troubles, please holler back and I'll load it back up to troubleshoot. Good luck.

    Thank you Marilyn,
    The wipe cache was the ticket.
    I read your post as I left the house and did a screen capture since I was going to be in an area with no wifi for the day, typical for my work situation. Then I downloaded the IWipe program and headed out the door. While I was rebuilding a computer I was able to take peeks at my iPad and wipe the cache and get the pictures to come out correctly.
    Thank you for the help.

    The slider should be in a folder named "com.apple.telephonyUI".
    And yes, apple did remame some stuff in ios 5.

    Well, it looks as if AppLe changed the naming conventions (again!) on the iPad for iOS 6. This time, it appears they removed the "T."

    My suggestion is to navigate to /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/TelephonyUI.framework [in iFile] and take a look at what files are actually on your iPad. Then, you can just change the files names in that theme - and that should make it work.

    Hopefully, that'll sort it for you. Yay, if it does. If not, holler back and we'll take another shot at it.
