    So I just flashed Aloysius V11 and really love it but am trying to change 2 things.
    First off I'm trying to get rid of the lockscreen and replace it with the HTC Sense Lockscreen (I believe), basically the stock one with a clock on it.
    I thought I could pull the HtcScreenLock.apk from the Rom I found it in then adb mount and push it. I tried that but got nothing. I'm guessing I need to remove the one that came with the version I have first but I'm having no luck.
    Secondly, I like the stock calculator better than the one that comes with all Aloysius Roms (that I've seen anyway) and I'm not real sure how to replace it.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.....and yes I have search here and XDA
    Thanks

    FOr the HtcScreenLock.apk you have to give it the right permissions i believe and then reboot and you should be able to see it
    Code (Text):
    1. adb shell mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    2. adb shell
    3. su
    4. cd /system/app
    5. chmod 775 HtcScreenLock.apk
    6. exit
    7. exit
    8. adb reboot
    The above code should make your lock screen come back
    As for the calculator one do the same thing but with the calculator app.

    Sorry to get slightly off topic but I have been trying to search and havent been very successful. What are the various chmod number permissions out there and their corresponding permissions they grant? Or if you have a link that provides all this I would be interested in that as well. I can wiki chmod but I'm not sure if that pertains to us or not. Sorry if thats a newb question.
