Give Your iPhone Lock Screen A Minimalistic Makeover With SubtleLock [Jailbreak Tweak]


If you like minimalistic design then you may like the new jailbreak tweak called SubtleLock.

The jailbreak tweak aims to make more room for the Wallpaper and Notifications in the Lock screen by making the date widget and slide to unlock bar slimmer as you can see in the screenshot above.

The developer says that by doing so you will get able to see 100 pixels more of the wallpaper and also make room for more Notifications.

After installing the tweak, you will be enable or disable it via the Settings app (Settings -> Subtle Lock).


It currently doesn’t work too well on the iPhone 5 or iPod touch 5G, but developer Michael Poole has said that he will releasing an update today, which should fix the issue.

It is currently compatible with LockInfo 5. The developer plans to add compatibility for IntelliScreenX and Unfold in the future.

SubtleLock is available on Cydia for $1. Download link if you’re on a jailbroken iOS device.

What’s your take on the minimalistic lock screen? Do you like it?

    just NO’T WORKING! iphone 4S 6.1. i don’t mind to invest in teaks and app’s. developers have the right to earn some for the effort and time that they put in to it. BUT i do fell a little f**t-up if i invested in teaks and app’s and for the sake of argument it dos not matter if it’s 1$ or 10$. if it’s not working and more then one people here comment that it’s not working. also after reboot, reinstall, respring. i fell that some one just find a way to make easy money…

      I thought I was the only one who faced the issue, but it looks like it doesn’t get enabled by default.

    I got it to work. just play around with the lockinfo settings. Make sure “consolidated” is on.

    SubtleLock 1.1-5 scrambles my Iphone 5 lookscreen after a reboot, is there a way to downgrade back to version 1.0 which worked fine, help!

    doesn’t seem to work with paperlock, it screwed up my iPhone 4S after installing this with paperlock already installed when I turn off my phone and turn it back on, the home screen is minimised (shrunk) to the left hand top corner of the phone’s screen, it also minimised (shrunk) the rest of the screen when browsing the rest of the apps with some crazy lines on the screen, tried to turn off and turn it back on, didn’t work, tried to reboot, didn’t work, had to restore the phone and then restore from back then re-jailbreak…had to do this twice because didn’t know the incompatibility with paperlock was the problem. Probably would work with paperlock if installed first then activate paperlock. That’s what I did the first time but forgotten when I jailbroke for iOS 6.1.2 and then when I reboot the home screen was shrunk.

    I paid for this tweak because the developers work hard but for some reason on the lockscreen when i scroll down for intelliscreen x ios6 it takes forever for me to scroll out of it pushing it back up so i can close it out takes forever i gotta be there with my thump scrolling up for awhile ……. You guys shud fix it other than that i like the feature.
