Max Katzmann comes up with one more tweak of interest: LockStatusHide.

Basically, LockStatusHide Cydia tweak hides the status bar on the lockscreen. There are no options to configure and the tweak is pretty small and sleek. But why would one want to hide the status bar on the lockscreen?

Plenty of reasons.

When you are going in for a minimal lockscreen – say like the one where you just want to have a clock and an unlock slider – this tweak will come in very handy. The tweak will also be useful when you want to use a lot of lockscreen tweaks which make the lockscreen a bit congested by the way.

Installing Lockstatushide
Well, that’s a bummer.

  • Open Cydia
  • Search for LockStatusHide. It should show up on the BigBoss repo.
  • Install it.
  • Respring.

Since there’s nothing to configure, all that happens is when you respring, the lockscreen loses the status bar. In its place, there’s a gap. Without other tweaks installed or without other hardwired configurations, it looks odd. But if you’ve got other tweaks installed that have a different clock design etc., this should turn out to be quite useful.

For instance, if you have the JellyLock and you have a clock widget that replicates Android’s clock, you can easily use LockStatusHide to hide the status bar. Voila. Now your lockscreen looks just like that of an Android smartphone.

The tweak basically works best with other tweaks installed but if you’re just looking to dump the status bar on the lockscreen, just install the tweak.

LockStatusHide is available on the BigBoss repo for free. It’s developed by Max who recently got us all the Stopwatch addon for Velox.
