I have been searching for about 2 hours now and I can't seem to find a way to change the word "Slide" on the unlock screen. Every search i do brings me to that imitation iphone SLIDE TO UNLOCK imitatioN! I hate that!

Can anyone give me a registry hack or something to change that word?

Hello,

the file LS_Lockscreen_480x800 (Portrait) you have to modify. You find it under \Windows\Lockscreen.
1. Copy file to Storage Card
2. Connect HD2 via ActiveSync to your PC
3. Copy file to PC
4. Open with Notepad or text editor you prefer
5. modify following sequence
<Text ID="SlideToUnlock" Left="135" Top="620" Width="315" Height="90" FontFamily="Helvetica Neue OTS" FontSize="18" Wrap="False" HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Middle" InnerTextType="Resource" Text="shellresapps.dll,18149">
<TextStage TextOffsetType="TextOffsetDropBottomRight" Color="#00000000" TextOffset="1" BlurFactor="3" Alpha="1.0"/>
<TextStage TextOffsetType="TextOffsetNone" Color="#FFFFFFFF"/>
</Text>
5a. InnerTextType="Resource" ->""
5b. Text="shellresapps.dll,18149" -> "What you want"
6. Store file
7. Copy file back to Storage Card via ActiveSync
8. Disconnect HD2 from PC
9. Copy file from Storage Card back to \Windows\Lockscreen
10. Soft reset
11. Enjoy

Note: Modification works similar for "Tap or Slide" (Text="shellresapps.dll,18150") as well

Kind Regards
Georg

Sorry, But I got lost VERY quick. Can you be a little more explicit and detailed. I got lost on finding that sequence since mines did not match yours at all.
I also cannot find "Text="shellresapps.dll,18149" -> "What you want""

@lemonspeakers

the cutout from file "LS_Lockscreen:480x800.cpr" is taken from the original
as provided with WM6.5. Values i.e. Left="135 might be different as
I´ve moved the slider to the bottom.
If you haven´t modified already the file you should find the values
InnerTextType="Resource" and Text="shellresapps.dll,18149" as well.
This you´ve to modify accordingliy.
a. InnerTextType="Resource" -> "" to enable own text ilo "Slide"
b. Text="shellresapps.dll,18149" -> i.e. "unlock"

I hope this makes it a little bit more clear

Regards
Georg

Following section describes position of slider
<Slider ID="LockSlider" Top="16" Left="48" Width="384" Height="82" Orientation="Middle" OnPress="ShowNotifications" OnSlideLeftFinal="Unlock" OnSlideRightFinal="Unlock" >
There are few further option having influence on the slider.
i.e. <Layer ID="Slide" Width="122" Height="82" OnInitComplete="Binding:LockScreen,LS_Notifications">
<Layer ID="SlideDown">
<Image ID="SliderFocusIcon" Width="122" Height="82" Visible="True" Opacity="1.0" ScalingAlgorithm = "TriLinear" />
</Layer>
<Layer ID="SlideUp">
<Image ID="SliderIcon" Width="122" Height="82" Visible="True" Opacity="1.0" ScalingAlgorithm = "TriLinear" />
</Layer>

specifies the slider size.
I´ve to apologize, I don´t know them all yet. Maybe there is somewhere a tutorial for the lockscreen file available explaining all parameters.

Regards
Georg

Dude, why are you making this so hard? Can you speak English correctly?

If you can just explain it in terms of:
1) find the file "InnerTextType="Resource""
2) Modify it to ...
3) Find next file...
4) Modify that to....

How hard can it be? For some reason I still cannot understand you!

If someone else can decode what he is saying I'd greatly appreciate it so much.

I just want to change the word "SLIDE" on the lock screen to something else.

Maybe the explanation is complicated because the change itself is complicated, even if it is only a small thing you want to change...

Maybe if someone from Denmark can understand the explanation, the problem is not so much that 'kleiner_onkel' (bit of a clue there about his nationality...) cannot speak English correctly, but that you cannot understand English correctly...

Maybe you should show a little more gratitude to the only person who has made the effort to help you instead of criticising his English...

Maybe you'll be looking a while longer for a solution to your 'problem'...

I found the instructions pretty easy to follow - although on re-booting I get the error message "Open of EnglishUS failed!"... after that it does load Sense etc, and the text is changed as I wished. Would be nice not to have the error on booting though - any ideas what's causing this?

BTW, lemonspeakers, why are you so rude to those that spend time trying to help you. I suspect Georg's first language may not be English, but he seems to manage pretty well - most can follow his instructions. Perhaps you could converse in his mother tongue? If not, then please be more polite.

Dude!

Dude just look for the "InnerTextType="Resource"" and delete it (there are two of them so you got to delete them both), next

find the "shellresapps.dll,18149" and change it to what ever word you want (again there are two "shellresapps.dll,18149" on it so you got to change also the other one)

reboot

First of all... you shouldnt be so rude to the only person in this thread that has taken the time to tell you how to do what you want.

Secondly... if you cant understand his instructions then i suggest that you dont try it out as you will probably cause some damage by modifying the wrong entries.

With that out the way... here is a pointer in the right direction...


LS_Lockscreen_480x800 is the file you are looking for...

InnerTextType="Resource" is part of the code in that file you have to modify.
