Internalizer: Add Custom Text to the Lockscreen

Do you remember the photos of a T-Mobile-branded iPhone BGR published a few months ago? The device was believed to be an internal Apple test unit for a couple of reasons, one of them being the custom “Confidential and Proprietary” text on the lock screen.

Well now, jailbreakers can add custom text to their lockscreens too, thanks to Internalizer. Chpwn’s latest TweakWeek entry allows you to place text on your lockscreen to use as a reminder or display contact info in case your device is lost…

Internalizer’s options can be adjusted from the Settings app. Here you can type in your custom text that will display when your iPhone’s screen is locked. The message (as you can see in the photo above), appears just above the unlock slider.

I use LockInfo, so the text actually gets in the way of other data I have on my lock screen. But it’s a cool utility nonetheless and I’m sure a lot of people will find it entertaining if not useful. Internalizer is available in Cydia (in the default repos) for free.
