Daily Tip: How to get custom Notification Center widgets in iOS 5 [Jailbreak]

Jailbroken iOS 5 and curious how to get custom Notification Center widgets up and running? Right now, Apple has only included weather and stocks widgets and hasn't shown any signs of extending an API to 3rd party developers for building their own. However, as soon as iOS 5 was jailbroken a few developers started tinkering around and found it was rather easy to build their own custom widgets, and we're already starting to see some interesting things come out of developers. We'll show you how to add them to your custom Notification Center... after the jump!

Daily Tip: Remove album artwork from the iPhone lockscreen when playing music [Jailbreak]

If you like to jailbreak your iPhone or iPod Touch, then you'll understand where I'm coming from when I say those who jailbreak also like to customize just about every aspect of their iDevice. Whether it's theming, modding or tweaking, we like things to be different to separate ourselves from the flock.

One of the things I hate about stock iOS is the way album art is always displayed on the lockscreen whenever playing music or listening to podcasts. I'd rather look at the wallpaper I've assigned to my lockscreen rather than some ugly album art, so in this tip we're going to show you how to get rid of it after the jump!

Jailbreak how-to: SSH basics and theme editing

One of the most common topics in the jailbreak forums is always theme editing and customization.  To really be able to truly customize a theme, you need to know how to SSH into your iPhone.  Anyone who is already familiar with web development and using an FTP client should be right at home.  For the most part, FTP clients are also capable of SSH.  If you don't have a client, don't worry, there's plenty of free ones.

And now for the typical disclaimer - if you aren't comfortable messing with your phone's file system and the possibility of having to completely restore if something goes wrong, don't proceed any further. As always, we aren't responsible for any damage you may do to your phone, so proceed at your own risk.  If this all sounds okay to you, read on iPhone ninja!
