These are instructions on how to customize your iPhone Lockscreen to display your calendar, mail, calls, sms, weather, twitter, todo, and more using LockInfo.

Step One
Press to launch Cydia from your Springboard.

Step Two
Press to choose Sections from the tabs at the bottom of the screen.

Step Three
Press to select Tweaks from the list of Sections.

Step Four
Tap to choose LockInfo from the list of Packages.

Step Five
Press the Install button at the top right of the screen.

Step Six
Press the Confirm button at the top right to begin installation.

Step Seven
Once the installation has completed successfully press the large Respring Springboard button.

Step Eight
Notice that you now have some useful information on your Lockscreen! Lets try to customize it...

Step Nine
Press to select Settings from your Springboard.

Step Ten
Scroll down and select LockInfo from the Settings Menu.

Step Eleven
If you haven't already purchased LockInfo you will be prompted to Buy Now or continue your trial. Press the appropriate button.

Step Twelve
At the top of the LockInfo Settings Menu you will see two switches. One places LockInfo on your lockscreen. The other places LockInfo on your Homescreen by inserting a page before your first Springboard page.

If you choose to add LockInfo to the homescreen then you must reboot your iPhone for the change to take effect.

Step Thirteen
LockInfo comes with Calendar, Mail, Phone, and SMS plugins installed. You can also add Twitter, Clock, Appigo Todo, WeatherIcon, and Push Notifications (Beta).

We will deal with adding another plugin below. For now press Plugins then press Plugin Order. Here you can drag to set the order your information appears in.

From the Plugins Setting screen you can also select a plugin to modify its individual settings. For example, if you select Calendar you can enabled or disable it, choose which Calendars appear, set the days, max events shown, and change the view options.

Step Fourteen
Back in the LockInfo main settings screen you can enable or disable scrolling, choose to extend info to bottom, and block popups.

Step Fifteen
You can also choose to display a page indicator on the Homescreen.

Step Sixteen
When playing music or video a popup controller normally appears on your lockscreen. When this occurs you can have LockInfo do nothing, hide the LockInfo or move the LockInfo down. You also have a choice to overlay the album art as the lockscreen background.

Step Seventeen
The LockInfo is divided into different sections for each plugin. You have the option to enable or disable collapsible sections as well as the option to hide empty sections.

Step Eighteen
Finally you can set the transparency of the LockInfo and choose to apply the transparency to cells only.

To install a lockinfo plugin follow these steps:

Step One
Press to launch Settings from your iPhone Springboard.

Step Two
Press to select LockInfo from your Settings menu.

Step Three
Press to choose Plugins from the LockInfo Settings menu.

Step Four
Press the Get More Plugins button from the Plugins Settings menu.

Step Five
Press to select the plugin you would like to install from the list of available plugins. For this example we will choose WeatherIcon.

Step Six
Cydia will automatically launch and open to the plugin package you just selected. Press the Install button at the top right of the screen.

Step Seven
Press the Confirm button at the top right to begin installation.

Step Eight
Once the installation has completed successfully you will notice that LockInfo has an extra section to display the new information.

Step Nine
The newly installed plugin can be configured in two areas. First you can go into Settings:LockInfo:Plugins and you will find your newly installed plugin listed.

Press to select it. From here you can choose to enabled or disable the plugin as well as modify some basic settings such as collapsed by default and hide description.

Step Ten
To access the detailed settings for your plugin press Settings from the Springboard then select the plugin name from the Settings menu.

From this window you have the ability to modify advanced settings for the plugin. If you installed the WeatherIcon plugin like us you can modify the icon's settings, put the temperature on the status bar, change how often the weather is refreshed, show the wind chill temperature, use local time and even override the default location.

Of course the settings in this area will change depending on which plugin you have installed. Currently you can choose to install these additional plugins: Twitter, Clock, Appigo Todo, WeatherIcon, and Push Notifications (Beta).

All this work for something that comes pre-loaded and ready to go on a Windows phone... this is a joke

Well Kevin, if you want to continue being a slave to MS and play on a toddler colored toy, then by all means continue using that windows phone. I had a windows 7 phone for 1 1/2 years and hated every freaking moment. I say to you and MS, wake up and grow the eff up. Get into the new century and stop trying to control every gd aspect of the experience to your liking and cater more to real users. Yes Kevin, you are obviously not a real user, you are a sheeple catering to MS control. Good going loser!!!

Sounds like you're being sarcasting and actually talking about the iPhone. Not sure if I should find you funny or just think you're being a hypocrite.

Okay, here's my issue. I have 4.3.3 and fw 4.10.01, and i can't upgrade because my phone has to be unlocked (at&t international carrier), and i want lockinfo notifications for my appigo todo list, but every time i download the plugin package and install it, my jailbreak crashes and won't respring.... any ideas?
