The Minimalist, Informative Lock Screen

The Minimalist, Informative Lock Screen

This minimalist, text-based lock screen gives you all the info you need to know when you hit your iPhone’s home button: the time, the date, and even the amount of RAM your device has free. Reader Jonnyt Mueller shows us how to grab this lock screen with just a few tools.

To get this look, all you need to do is jailbreak your iPhone and grab these two apps from the Cydia app store:

  • LockMS, which will add the “LockMS” theme to Winterboard. Enable it to get the main text on your lock screen.
  • Ios4 NoSlider.Theme, which will get rid of the slider.
  • SBSettings, which you can use to stick the free RAM statistic in your menu bar.

With just a few small tweaks, you can get your lock screen looking pretty stylish and minimalistic, while making it more informative and easy to read than the default.
