Lock Plus Lock Screen Theme

One of the most difficult things that jailbreakers can do is put together a decent looking theme. Sure, all in one themes like Ayeris make it easy, but building a fully themed iPhone piece-by-piece is a little more challenging.

And then there’s the fact that there are so many type of themes. There’s SpringBoard themes, Lock screen themes, app-specific themes, etc. There’s really a lot to plan out and think about when it comes to successfully theming a jailbroken iPhone.

Well, a new theming solution is aiming to change this—at least when it comes to theming the Lock screen. LockPlus is a soon-to-be-released theming solution created by @JunesiPhone and based on Cydget. It allows you to create full Lock screen themes using a simple WYSIWYG web editor.

As mentioned, LockPlus is based on Cydget, which allows you to customize the Lock screen. LockPlus works by allowing you to download and apply custom made themes created using the LockPlus web interface.

You can download existing themes, or you can head over to LockPlus.us on your computer and create your own theme to download.

The WYSIWYG editor allows you to add a background image, overlay image, and custom elements like time, date, battery, shapes, etc. Users can reposition the location of items on the Lock screen, change their color, font weight, and more. It’s a highly customizable experience that makes it possible for even novices to create a good-looking Lock screen theme.

LockPlus 1

Once your theme is created, you’re asked to give it a name. You can then invoke the LockPlus interface from your jailbroken iPhone, and download the theme using its name. Once the Lock screen theme is downloaded, you can browse all of the themes on your device, and apply the one of your choice.

LockPlus 2

If theming has always been something you’ve shied away from, then LockPlus may change that. It allows you to easily create Lock screen themes using a simple interface that anyone can use.

LockPlus is entering public beta soon, and will be released on Cydia a week after the beta. The price will be $2.99.

We’ll have more about this upcoming release in the future. For now, drop us a line down below in the comment section, and let us know what you think about LockPlus. Do you think it’s a good idea? Will you use it?

    I like this! It’s simple and looks fun. Looking forward to it coming out and giving it a try!

  • Manor

    No iPad support?

  • Mr_Coldharbour

    You sure do like Paris, don’t you Jeff? 🙂

    • Yeah, definitely one of my favorite cities.

      • Mr_Coldharbour

        Likewise, it sure is amazing. Winters are just magical here, or at least back when it used to snow.

  • Viktor_Zweig

    What happens when you get a notification?

    • It blurs, and presents the stock notification interface.

      • Scope

        So it wouldn’t work with notifications tweaks such as PriorityHub?

      • Jason Douglas Haas

        No, it should work fine.

  • Can’t wait. I’ll be doing a few.

  • PJ

    This is awesome.

  • Tylor Jackson

    Does still no iPad support? Why?

  • Guy

    This tweak / app is gonna rule Cydia. It’s gonna be awesome.

    • Rex

      Not really. This isn’t new there’s been tweaks like this in the past.

  • Eden

    There is any beta source ?

  • craig

    i hate using any kind of lockscreen themes…… but this might just be the tweak what has my mind changed! looks really nice and plentiful for changing 🙂

  • GadgetQueenn

    This looks pretty sweet!

  • jilex

    The only thing that keeps me away from theming is the ram usage

  • The Fluffy Alpaca

    This is a gamechanger!

  • bln

    looks nice good ideal wahta about the battary life with this tweak?

  • I need Celsius and 24 hour times, but I like it.

    • bln

      i wrote dev and he told me its in the settings of the app ; )

  • marqnoob69

    Totally cool Jeff… Do you need help testing the beta? I have made one lock screen on LockPlus already and want to try out and make more…

  • marqnoob69

    Also, do you have a repo in cydia

  • bln

    yeah Celsius and 24 h would be perfect

  • Wild2nite

    Like the wallpaper anyone has it ??

  • YungJizz

    Why wouldn’t developers have “full packs” that one could purchase in cydia. Have it contain most of the tweaks we buy individually, but offer it in a full package. Kind of like a winter board theme, but be able to change it to your liking.

    • Jason Douglas Haas

      That’s what they used to have in iOS 6.

  • Jason Douglas Haas

    So, how do you work the website because I clicked about everything…
