Default [GUIDE][JB 4.1.2+] How To Remove "Swipe Up Or Down" At The Lockscreen

Hello Everyone
I'm Going To Guide You On How To Remove "Swipe Up Or Down" Text At The Lockscreen


This Method Will Work For Sony Official Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean & Above Including The Latest KitKat

What Do You Need

1. A Computer With Android SDK Installed
2. APK Tool (Any Kind That Able To Decompile & Recompile APK)
3. Notepad++
4. Xperia™ Smartphone With Rooted ROM & Deodexed ROM
5. Time

So The Guide Starts Here

1) Open Any File Manager That Allowed To Navigate To System
2) Go To System/App & Copy The XperiaLockScreen.apk For 4.2.2+ / UxpNxtLockScreen.apk For 4.1.2 To Your Computer
3) Decompile The APK
4) Navigate To res/layout & Open The unlock_hint.xml With Notepad++
5) You Will Find This
Code:
Select Code
<TextView android:textSize="@dimen/lockscreen_text_size_medium" android:gravity="center" android:layout_gravity="center" android:id="@id/hintText" android:paddingLeft="@dimen/lockscreen_text_padding" android:paddingRight="@dimen/lockscreen_text_padding" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:text="@string/lockscreen_short_unlock_hint" android:shadowColor="@color/text_shadow_color" android:shadowDx="@integer/text_shadow_dx" android:shadowDy="@integer/text_shadow_dy" android:shadowRadius="@integer/text_shadow_radius" />
6) Delete This Whole Line & Save It
7) Download The Pictures Here & Replace Them In res/drawable-xxhdpi
8) Replace The Pictures In drawable-xhdpi Folder If You Got 720 x 1280 Screen Resolution & drawable-hdpi For 480 x 854 While drawable-mdpi For 320 x 480
9) Recompile The APK & Replace It In System/App & Set Permissions To RW-R-R
10) Done! :D
