Default Lock Screen Widgets

Is the only way to put a widget on lockscreen (like HD widgets clock and weather) on the lockscreen in place of the stock clock through rooting? And if I root is it easy to manipulate the lock screen?

Thanks,

Glenn

Not sure, but have you tried the app GoLocker? I haven't tried it on this device, but I tried it on my Evo4g and it worked nicely.

im not positive about the first question..but if you root, and flash a custom rom, you will have virtually full control of your lockscreen to customize however you want..depending on what rom you flash of course.
