I have a jailbroken iPad 2 and I was wondering if it is possible to stop the passcode buttons from lighting up when they're pressed. Is there some sort of image somewhere that can be changed to keep this from happening?

  • I'm curious to know if you ever got this working. I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help. It's hard for me to get a hold of a JailBroken iPad. Commented Jun 12, 2012 at 18:09

The image you're looking for is /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/DeviceLockKeypadPressed~ipad.png Using iFile (or SSH), make a copy of DeviceLockKeypad~ipad.png into the same folder. Delete DeviceLockKeypadPressed~ipad.png, and rename your copied file to this. You could also edit the image to be a color other than blue.

    I can't seem to find any image similar to that on the iPad. Commented Feb 13, 2012 at 4:11
  • What version of iOS are you running? The file should be called DeviceLockKeypadPressed~ipad.png (updated answer to reflect correct filename). Commented Feb 13, 2012 at 5:07
  • I'm running iOS 5.0.1. I tried searching for that file and it doesn't exist. Commented Feb 13, 2012 at 15:25
  • You should look directly for the file in iFile by going to / -> System -> Library -> CoreServices -> SpringBoard.app. If you still can't find it, give me a brief list (there should only be about six) of all the files that start with the letter "d" in that folder. Commented Feb 13, 2012 at 18:42
  • I said that I searched through the entire file system for that file. And none of those files in SpringBoard.app are it. Commented Feb 13, 2012 at 19:54
