I found this awesome lockscreen on Cydia yesterday, with a little help from AtomicMufin on Twitter. It’s called TypoPhone 4 and it’s basically a lockscreen theme that shows the time and date in large bold letters. It also contains this cool unlock slider. You can download it from Cydia and activate it with Winterboard.

To have it look exactly like the image above, you’ll also need to download Lockscreen Clock Hide from Cydia, which like the name suggests, hides the clock on your iPhone.

I think that’s an awesome mod and it is without a doubt the coolest iPhone lockscreen I’ve seen so far. Now this thing just needs a little bit of colors to make it perfect.

What do you guys think? You like it?

  • Kupalogz

    It’s really nice. I like it, but unfortunately my iPhone 4 is not jailbroken and I don’t wish or plan to do it.

    • jackaroo

      whybnot?

      • Jose

        Dont jailbreak its not worth it, it will mess up ur iphone, the iphone 4 especially

      • Lot’s of reasons. If you use your iPhone to read company email, most likely they are using an MDM solution or Active Sync profile that blocks jail broken phones.

    • Sorin

      iphonne without JailBrake (all those system apps) is just another phone.

      • Luca

        Not at all

  • neeraj

    This is a copy of wp7, sortof.

    • DarkReaper

      Well the idea, sort of.

  • Wselviz

    I wonder of this could drain your battery

  • This is actually one pretty awesome lockscreen! Nice find.

  • Yea I like wished you could modify the colors, do you know if there is a way?

    • Yes you can but I don’t know how.

      • Suavedude

        I agree S. It is v. cool.

  • saw it on macthemes about a week ago..

  • SB

    It is sick … design fail.

  • ciparz

    I wonder how i can hide the “slide to unlock” title ??

    • Burge

      There is a mod in cydia look in tweaks

      • Moe

        Does anybody know the name of this tweak?

      • Burge

        It’s called- lockscreen clock hide -it’s in the repo modmyi

  • Doug

    This is very nice! How much are the apps?

  • appletiser

    each to their own i guess but i think a much cooler lockscreen is my current: nexus lock with android lock xt – no more boring ‘swipe to unlock’ for me thank you =)

  • Z

    It’s hidious! Try iHTC ClockCal lockscreen or even HTC Plasma HD Lockscreen. Also needs the clockhide, and looks better with Best Clear Lockscreen

    • KinGz

      I agree, this is a horrible looking theme.

  • Boostaddikt

    Not for me. Unless in need of alarm clock! But better than many others I’ve seen!

  • MikeLo

    No thank you

  • I like it. Simple. Easy to read.

  • littlemike

    Check out the slanted lockscreen theme it’s similar

  • Soto187

    Looks retro but decent. I have androidlock xl and I love it. So I’ll pass on this lock screen.

  • jimbo

    No thank you

  • DomPerignon

    It is kind of cool but any variation of “Lockinfo” is much better looking and useful.

  • Shahzad

    A decent lockscreen. Will keep it for a while

  • Andrew

    Looks zuneish

  • Agentsmith

    Looks like Windows Phone 7 screen

  • alek

    nice! but cant get rid of the slide to unlock text, have both the clock hide & slide to unlock hide, any body else ?

    • kron1k

      To remove the slide to unlock for this lockscreen you need to edit one of the js files that are inside the typograph 4 theme

      • h k

        no you don’t need to text edit at all

  • Danny

    Does anybody know what source I can get the clock hide from? Modmyi source doesnt seem to have it?

  • October

    I got it, LOVE IT!!!!! mine didn’t disable the BG tho, I found an all black image, but since have changed it to something pink… I have the clock hider thing to, so don’t know it did that, but its better that way too

  • Daniel

    There is now a LockInfo addon that has this clock/date. It’s on the top of my LockInfo screen (though I only use it for my home screen, with and android unlock screen)

  • smangii

    love love LOVE this lockscreen. Only reason I have winterboard installed (iphone 3G with 4.0.2…winterboard is very buggy) is to use this lockscreen 🙂

  • Toby

    how the hell can i get rid of this htc lock screen as i have disabled it in winterboard but its still there..arrggghh

    • JB

      your have to disable the HTC plugin under lockinfo settings.

  • Tony

    Hey thanks, silly me that worked, right this app I have added the weather one and it shows greece instead of my country , how do I change location to my area 🙂

  • Karen

    You can put a background behind it by just choosing a photo and use it as wallpaper. It will show up when you deselect and reselect the theme, then respring

  • Gubben

    OMG some tardish iphone 4 owners ! jailbreak ftw !! all your programs i got for free.. . i saved atleast 800 dollars by jailbreaking + cool mods and themes. i can control it. mess up my iphone. omg.. jailbreaking is the best decision i made. I am greenpoison jailbroken 4.2.1 ihpone 4 32 g.
    having normal lock passcode and android pass slide lock in ones. more safe then yours.. cooler then yours. cheaper then yours. and more advanced. so. get moving and jailbreak your stuff.. seriously..

  • Tony

    Mess up your the one who sounds messed up :/

  • Tony

    Who has an iPhone 4?? It’s all about better features on some and not others anyway if I had an iPhone 4 I would jailbreak that as well

  • pretty cool but needs a theme to go with it.

  • dfs

    looks like shit, ’nuff said!

  • josh

    the time on my screen flashed from the time and 88:88 how can i stop this from happening??please help, thanks!

    • Andrew

      Same thing happening to me. I’ve tried a few things but the problem remains. Would love to have this working properly on my phone. Anyone with ideas on how to fix this?

      • anyone

        FOR THOSE WHO GET 88:88 IN THE BACK OF TYPOPHONE 4:

        Get iFile from cydia and launch it.

        then go private/var/stash/themes in your iPhone / iTouch

        go Typophone 4, then open style.css.

        Find where it says:

        background-image:url(‘/private­­/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoa­r­d/LockBackground.jpg’);

        Then change it to:

        background-image:url(‘LockBack­­ground.png’);

        Re-spring and it should be good.

      • Andrew

        I discovered another way to fix the flashing 88:88 is by purchasing Typophone Weather from the Apple App Store for .99. It gives you more control over the lock screen allowing you to have the background of your choice, 12 or 24 hour style clock, a list of different cities for the weather report, theme option, Unlock Text changes and a choice of weather icons. I’m sure the fix suggested below works fine, but not being a programmer I avoid messing with code whenever possible. The fix plus the additional functionality is more than worth the .99 in my opinion.

  • josh

    i have this lockscreen but it flashes from the time to 88:88 how can i stop this?? help pleaae:)thanks!

  • josh webb

    does anyone know how to get a coloured typophone 4 screen?

  • Toby

    there is another file you can get to stop it flashing from cydia, if you scroll up it tells you :)any more good themes any one can recommend 🙂

  • Anthony

    I got this and it is awesome but my numbers on the front show the time but then then it blinks 88:88 and blinks back. It keeps doing this. Does anyone know why?

    • Lo-Lo

      minds does too

    • Lo-Lo

      do this it works

  • Or

    I think it looks like crap. It over laps

  • Lo-Lo

    cool app but one problem the clock on the app (not the fone clock i already have the hide clock app) looks funny its like numbers over lapping numbers how can i change that plz help

  • Overlaps

    Yup, looks like shite, clock digits flicker and overlap on 3GS

  • I don’t know what everyone’s bitching about.. I’m running 6.1 on my iPhone 5 and it looks great, used to run this on my old iPhone with no issues either, never had any overlapping..? Months that contain a lot of letters run off the screen, but I believe that’s the intended look, and I do get the 88:88 when I respring but only for a millisecond, nothing to be bothered about.. Great lock screen theme IMO

    • No Whammy

      It can be customized with a little bit of CSS knowledge too.
