I'm having the same problem. A work around (possibly not the best) would be to change the screenlock to pattern rather than PIN or password.

I want rid of that horrible rainbow thing as well! I wonder if it's a ploy to get us to upgrade to new phones?

The Tom this is running on should be deodexed atleast. Then you can snag framework-res and change the picture to a specific one.

It's definitely not a ploy, because when I got my Galaxy S II last fall, it had the exact same lock screen picture and drag-anywhere-to-unlock method, so Samsung was just trying to class it up

Default Screen Lock

This whole issue was brought on by Apple VS Samsung. It was changed to NOT infringe on Apple's screen lock patent. Apple is even claiming that the present unlock method also infringes. But I've read Apple's claim on the "single point slide to unlock" won't stand in court.
