The jailbreak tweak Aeuria LS is a stand-alone lock screen mod that adds clean, minimalist design to this segment of iOS. In addition to the lock screen, the passcode entry keypad can also be customized for a fresh look. Even though elements such as slide to unlock and the Camera icon are hidden, they operate using the same gestures.
Once installed, Aeuria LS will display default settings on the lock screen. This is the tip of the iceberg, as Settings -> Aeuria LS has options galore. There are basics, such as hiding the status bar, changing the clock face and font, and hiding the zero button on the passcode keypad. From there an incredible list of customizable variables can be tweaked.
All manner of specific sizes, padding and widths can be fine tuned under Other Settings. Color pickers allow for custom colors, and the wallpaper on the lock screen can be darkened behind the clock. The variety of different customizations is even more impressive considering that Aeuria LS is free.Aeuria LS is available from Cydia on the BigBoss repo free of charge.
