    I enjoy the WidgetLocker application, however I wanted to see if I was able to use the stock Vanilla 2.2 lockscreen instead of the HTC swipe lock which I despise. I saw some older posts on this for the Hero, but thought I would resurrect for us Incredible users.

    I found this over on XDA and it is a very simple pre-zipped way of removing or adding the lockscreen without entering the ADB shell. Props to MachString over there as I had no part in creating this.

    Download to SD Card
    Enter Clockwork Mod Recovery
    Choose Install from SD
    Choose the zip file on SD named HtclockscreenRemoval.zip

    If you want to put it back, follow same directions with the other file.

    For whatever reason, I have seen Quadrant Scores go from 1198 to 1218 since I have done this?? Hmm...

    Also wondering if the swipe to answer call can be switched to stock if anyone knows...

    Good find, but it had nothing to do with increasing your benchmark scores. They will change every time you run the program because conditions are never the same. Plus, 20 points isn't enough of a difference to even care about.

    So far nobody has seemed to come up with a way of stopping the swipe to answer call thing (I hate it too!).

    Kevin, the widgetLocker dev, posted a few days ago that he was working on a way to still have his lock screen display on incoming call, which would (presumably) then show the unlocked answer screen after the phone unlocked (green/red buttons).

    There are a few things about sense that I find useful, but some of the little things like what you described are turning out to drive me nuts. If CM6 gets some of these remaining bugs like camcorder worked out, I might jump if I can get certain things worked out.
