    I just received my Eris 2.1 update today.

    I was hoping to get the new unlock screen. I don't like how the
    slide down to unlock takes up a good chunk of screen. Wasn't this
    supposed to change with the update to the new one where you
    have the circular slide?

    I tried doing a search on this but all i kept finding were apps to
    download to replace this.

    What do you want it to do?

    Edit... missed the 'circular slide' comment.

    I don't remember reading about that one.

    That is the stock HTC Sense UI lockscreen. I won't change from 1.5--->2.1. I'm not sure you if you have to have root or not for this, but if you go the android.grdlock.net and look in the extras folder. There is a lockscreen_del.zip file to download that will delete the sense lockscreen and replace it with stock android.

    I think it requires root, But I would LOVE this, the stock vanilla unlock is soooo much better IMO.

    so that method to get the lockscreen_del.zip file only works on rooted phones?
    that really sucks. i hate having the big slide thing right in the bottom 1/3. if it
    were on closer to the bottom i wouldn't mind it so much, it just makes designing
    a good lock screen really hard.
