Custom iPhone Lockscreen by Darnton Custom iPhone Lockscreen by Darnton
HELP: Does anyone know how I can get MBEx to close automatically when the iPhone is unlocked?

I have assembled and modified this theme for my iPhone 3GS, I am running iOS 4.2.1.

- Flare for iPhone ([link])

Status Bar Removal:
- Transparent Status Bar (you can find this on Cydia)

Status Bar icons:
- LS Nimbus ([link])

Info: I have also created blue versions of the silver icons for the status bar in applications.

- SimplScreen ([link])

Info: I don't think I changed this apart from making it 24 hour.

MBEx Theme:
- Grilled MBEx ([link])

Info: I have used and edited the .plist code from this theme, this took a while as I have never done anything like this before.

- MBEx Plastic Cover HD ([link])

Info: I got the bulk of the images from here. I resized and edited a few of the images, I also removed the album cover overlay because I couldn't get it to function correctly.

- Black Wireframe Toolbar Icons

Info: I got the media control icons from here; I edited them to make them match the colour scheme of the rating stars.

- I plan on making a surround for the album cover, text and media controls
- If possible I plan on making the text box scroll rather than having "..." appear when the name is too long (not sure how to do this yet)
- I may reposition the media controls

All credit goes to the original creators as this wouldn't have been possible without their themes

Just wondering, do you have a way to reposition the album art?
Darnton Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2011
Hey, yeah there is, open the .plist file (for Windows there is a free program called "plist Editor") and look for a line referring to album art (can't remember the exact name, sorry but it should become apparent).
In there you should see some x and y co-ordinates, just like a graph depending on the values of these is the position of the album artwork (I think 0,0 refers to the bottom left of the screen)

Hope this helps

There has been issue on the SimplScreen lockscreen wallpaper. Did you manage to fix it?
Darnton Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2011
Hello, I think you must copy your background image into the SimplScreen.theme folder in .jpg format going on to rename it as "LockBackground.jpg". Hope this is what you're looking for.

How did you remove the bar in the status bar? that dark bar thing and make it transparent?
Darnton Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2011
I got this from Cydia, it is called "Transparent Status Bar" from the ModMyi source (a standard source that comes with the app)
