Being able to customize certain aspects of your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is just one of the best benefits of jailbreaks. Admittedly some of the jailbreak tweaks that we have come across changes only a very little aspects of the iOS, making them not so useful. But still, it is pretty cool to see such tweaks as these hacks add customizability to your device.
And today we have such kind of tweak for you. The name of the jailbreak tweak in today's feature is Slider Enhancer from author Ron Melkhior. What this tweak basically do is change the label that is being displayed inside the "slide to unlock" bar. The options that you can use to change the label are battery percentage, clock, WiFi network name, IP address, free amount of RAM and lastly, any custom text that you want to provide.
And that's pretty much it. One would argue whether or not this tweak does enhance anything in the slide to unlock bar. But at least, you will be able to change the boring "slide to unlock" label into something different. You can choose to put some funny texts in there to impress your non-jailbreaking friends. For those who likes to customize every aspect of their iDevice, then Slider Enhance should be a welcome tweak. And hey, it is a free tweak so it won't hurt for you to give it a try. Slider Enhancer is available in Cydia under the BigBoss repository.
As per usual before you can hope to install this tweak, you will of course need a jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. For those who have installed the iOS 4.3.5 IPSW, you can use our Redsn0w tethered guide. But if it is an untethered jailbreak is what you are after, go ahead and download the iOS 4.3.3 IPSW and restore. Then use one of the following tools: Redsn0w / Sn0wbreeze / PwnageTool / JailbreakMe. If you are currently running the iOS 5.0 build, then you may use our iOS 5.0 Redsn0w jailbreak tutorial. For the latest iOS 5.0.1 firmware however, refer to our iOS 5.0.1 Redsn0w jailbreak guide. And if you want to convert your jailbreak to a semi-tethered one, please use our semi-tethered tutorial.Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
