    Quick question, and sorry if its been asked, but a quick simple answer will do the trick. I am currently running xtrom 4.6 and I was wondering if there was a way to change my lockscreen. In particular, i'm looking for slide bar, kind of like the iphone. Also where can I find some different lock screens, if it is possible? Thanks!

    Try widget locker in the market, works pretty good and you can change it around.

    I'm not sure... I think... somewhere...
    Many apps in the market. For an iPhone like lockscreen UI, I'd suggest Lock 2.0. However, I find that the highly customizable WidgetLocker is the best lock scren I've had the pleasure of using. It's a premium app, but it's well worth it. It's stable, fast, and DOESN'T require it to be set as the home(if you have root that is ;))

    For the widgetlocker, is there anyway I can just get rid of the two sliders, and just use the iphone slider?

    is there an iphone lockscreen that is flashable that completely replaces the lockscreen? Because with lock 2.0 because there is a little lag... not a lot. I just don't think there should be any lag when unlocking the phone because it is not an arduous task to perform.

    or if not like the iphone then something new and different? i just want to change things up a little bit.

    Sure does, I used it on my wifes phone. Did you find the zip? I think I put a link to it. Just flash from recovery, works better then any of the widget locker or lock bot. No lag.

    How would you "unzip" to go back to XTRsense lock screen?

    First of all when changing anything major to your phone you always want to do a nandroid backup. I sometimes forget to mention that because it is stated so much and one of those pet pevs that you should always remember to do. After saying that, make a nand backup then flash the zip. If for some reason you dont like it just do a restore of the nand you just did.:D

    If you didn't do a Nandroid first, I'd think that reflashing xtrSENSE without wiping data first may reset the default lockscreen.

    I really like the "tab" lockscreen that most of the vanilla ROMs have... by far the best-looking one I've seen yet. I also like how the right tab puts the phone on vibrate (instead of just silent like it used to). Very handy!

    Hey, Kobe, I flashed the zip you posted and I love it. However, is there a way to change the wallpaper so the lockscreen isn't clear? Every time I go to change it, it will say it has been changed but it stays the same. I don't mind that it's clear, I just can't stand the clock that clashes with the clock on my home screen. Thanks for the help

    To be honest I havent tried to change the lockscreen. I will give it a shot to see if it can be done.:) If all else fails, zach may be able to get rid of the time on the lockscreen.

    Let me know if your successful. I love the lockscreen but the clearness of it is bothersome. May just go back to the boring HTC lockscreen if I can't figure out how to change the background

    I tried to get it to work, no luck. I'll say something to Zach about it.

    That'd be great if you could do that. Thank you

    I sent Zach a message and if he is anything, he is very helpful. I should have some kind of answer in an hour or so.

    No word from Zach yet, which means he is either on vacation or working hard on a new rom.

    I tried that MM and couldn't for the life of me figure out how to change the background. I asked for help/suggestions in the original thread over at xda and never received a response. For some reason I've never been able to get any of my questions answered over there. That's one of the reason why I LOVE this forum so much, everyone is so nice and helpful
