Customize your jailbroken iPhone’s Lock Screen with LockNice

If you’re in the market for an easy-to-use jailbreak tweak that lets you customize aesthetics on the Lock Screen and some other parts of iOS, then you may want to turn your attention to the likes of a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called LockNice by iOS developer ahmedmakls.

At face value, LockNice appears to be made for tweaking the look of your Lock Screen in subtle, yet personal ways. But when we tested the tweak, we were pleasantly surprised to find that some of the colorization features extended to the Home Screen.

In the screenshot examples below, you’ll see just a few of the different things you can do with LockNice, including shifting the position of the Lock Screen’s date and time display, colorizing all manifestations of text, and setting a custom ‘swipe up to unlock’ text string, among other things:

Once installed, LockNice adds a dedicated preference pane to the Settings app where users may set the tweak up however they want:

Here, you can:

  • Center or right-align the Lock Screen’s date and time display
  • Enable and configure custom text colors
  • Hide the Camera and flashlight Quick Actions independently of one another
  • Apply a color gradient to various elements of the Lock Screen
  • Enable and configure custom ‘swipe up to unlock’ text

The developer provides a button at the top of the preference pane entitled “Application (Settings),” which you can tap to respring your device and save all the changes you’ve made.

LockNice isn’t overly extravagant, but it’s a good place to start if you’re new to jailbreaking and interested in getting your feet wet with Lock Screen customization.

LockNice is available as a free download from the BigBoss repository from any of the major package managers out there. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 devices.
