Okay, I'm soon going to have Mac set up for developing iOS Apps and Tweaks using iOS SDK, Xcode, Theos and iOSOpenDev. And I was wondering, how to I start with these? Can someone give me tips about developing a tweak for the lock screen that includes random moving animations?

I'd recommend learning a reasonable amount before joining the IRC channels - you can get started with Objective-C using Apple's own tutorials, a book, or videos online.

yeah, once you're done with Objective-C, move to IRC channels.

I don't know if anyone is ever "done" with a programming language, but I'd recommend at least getting a good start with it - completing a simple app, etc. :) It looks like Apple's Start Developing iOS Apps Today guide is pretty reasonable. iPhoneDevWiki is also a good resource after you learn the basics.

Thanks Britta! I remade Hello World on xcode. Now, just wondering, how do I install an Xcode project aka app into my jailbroken phone without paying $99 before submitting to Biggboss/ModMyI?
