NOTE! I suggest using the method posted below the pictures. Its much easier and much safer wink Also seems to work for more people.

Requirements:
SSH ability (google for this)
iPod Touch, iPhone jailbroken
WinSCP, CyberDuck, Trasmit or the like
OpenSSH from Cydia or installer
BSD Subsystem if you are on 2.0.0 or earlier

Step One: SSH into your iPod or iPhone (im just going to say iphone from now on but it applys to iTouch as well) and navigate into /System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app/English.xx/

Step Two: Copy SpringBoard.strings to your desktop.

Step Three: Open SpringBoard.strings in notepad and find the words, "Slide To Unlock" (without the quotes) and change it to what ever you want. It can't be more than about 16 spaces before it starts to get cut off. Obviously this changes depending on what font your using and what you type. Save that.

Step Four: Go into WinSCP or w.e u chose to use and rename the original SpringBoard.stings that is currently on your iPhone to SpringBoard.strings.bak. Then copy over the edited SpringBoard.strings from your computer. Respring and enjoy! heres a screenshot (Sorry BOyOfWONDEr) Daaang! That's Fly! doesnt fit sad
