Element – Lockscreen Cydget Teehan+Lax iPhone Home Screen is now Available in Cydia for FREE
Back in November of 2009 I have listed an Article on a Lockscreen / Homescreen Widget called Element and back then it was just a concept by Teehan and Lax but today this concept is a reality.
Element is available in Cydia for free, and it is similar to LockInfo. Using Cydgets, you will be able to see missed phone calls, messages, mails, weather, and other info, all without having to unlock the iDevice.
Here is the tutorial on how to get this neat looking widget installed on your iDevice (iPhone, iTouch, iPad)
If you would like to see the Article I wrote in November of 2009 you can read it here. If you know what this widget is all about then get ready to install it.
Here is what this Cydget looks like… I hope this is everything you dreamed of because it’s AWESOME.
Another GREAT LockScreen app is LOCKINFO… You can get it here for free, follow this detailed tutorial on how to install it on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Good Luck.
This lockscreen widget will be part of saurik’s new Cydget framework. So when you will install it you will also install the Cydget Framework all at the same time.
First thing you need to do is go to Cydia and search for “Element”, once you find it you will have to tab on the found Element Package.
You will see the descriptions screen; at the top of this screen tap “Install” button, then tap “Confirm” button.
After installation is completed your iPhone will have to be either restarted or you will have to Respring your Springboard.
Now on your iPhone go to Settings and then scroll down and tap on Cydget button… Tap on Lock Cydget Oder button… Deselect everything you see and select “Only” the Element Widget and respring your device. NOTE: If you hit the home button your device will respring automatically.
After your iDevice resprings go back into Settings and scroll down and tap on Element button… You will see all the toggles for your lockscreen, tweek this widget to your liking and respring your iPhone. Once you respring your iPhone or iTouch hit the “POWER” button to put your device to sleep.
Hit to HOME button to wake the device up… You will see the Element Lockscreen Widget in all its glory and beauty. What ever you have selected in the Settings>>>Element screen is what you will see on your lockscreen.
Good luck and have fun with this widget.
