    Greets,
    During updating to iOS7 I was asked to enter a passcode. I did. Before the JB with evasi0n7 I turned off the passcode.
    I was attempting to delete a couple of apps that didn't completely install. They won't go awway. I read about checking restrictions in Settings. When I go there it asks for a passcode. I didn't set a passcode. It is also not the lock screen passcode that I originally set up.
    As Jennifer would say, "bloody hell!"
    I am ready to restore iOS7. I am reading that I need to restore as new. Am I going to lose my contacts? I have them on the iCloud and on my iPhone, but ***!?!
    (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday)
    Any hints before I restore?

    If your contacts are synced with iCloud, the Contacts app should re-sync after you've restored the iPad. You'll have to turn on Contacts under the iCloud section in Settings, but they should all come back.

    Sorry for your troubles...

    Thank you, Marilyn. Four and a half hours of sleep isn't enough. :)
    I can add all of the apps again once I get it all sorted out. I only had a few songs that I was learning to play in iTunes.
    Since I didn't set a "restrictions" password i can't figure why the OS thinks there is one. One of the mysteries of Cyberia.

    While I got your ear, is there a tweak for the lock screen clock font? I didn't see it in BytaFont. I'll look again, just in case.

    No, with the advent of BytaFont 2 (for iOS 7), there is no separate category to change just the lock screen font or to make it different. It does change, however, when you change the "System" fonts (in the Advanced tab).

    So, it changes - you just can't break it out like we used to in iOS 6.
