‘TrickSlide’ Eliminates Your Slide to Unlock Nub in Favor of a Cleaner Look

TrickSlide is yet another entry into the TweakWeek series of iPhone jailbreak tweaks. Although the name may sound cunning and cutting edge, at the end of the day, this is nothing more than a glorified WinterBoard theme, without actually having to use WinterBoard.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but this same functionality can, and has been easily accomplished in the past by use of clever WinterBoard theming.

All that TrickSlide aims to do is to hide your “Slide to Unlock” nub on your iPhone’s lock screen; nothing more, nothing less…


While it may seem tricky at first, anyone that knows their way out of a wet paper bag will inevitably be able to figure out how to unlock your iPhone with TrickSlide installed.

In other words, don’t go into it for the trick, go into it for the looks.

TrickSlide is available fror free on Cydia if you have a jailbroken iPhone. It may not be in the default repos as of yet, so try adding Ryan’s repo located at the following address: http://rpetri.ch/repo/
