By | January 6, 2014

Here is a quick tip for all you Cydia users out there that have the Flex 2 cydia app installed.


If you are like me, you like your device to look minimal and clean. When looking at the lock screen the only thing I want to see is a clock. There lies the question, “How do you do that?” With the cydia app Flex 2 its a few simple changes away. Take a look.

First using the Flex 2 cydia app, navigate to Springboard and process the spring board library.flex 2 lock screen

Then search for ‘_shouldShowdate’ it should be a (BOOL) object. See Below.
