    I have installed the normal android clock so that I can get the alarm to work with the standard android rotary lock screen. I've noticed that in the android clock app there are 4 buttons on the bottom. One button for the alarm, one for (what looks like) pictures, the next for music, and then a home button. When I tap on the pictures button nothing happens. When I tap on the music button it force closes the app.....

    How do I get these two buttons to work?

    Also, how do I take a screenshot of whats on my device? I've tried to connect my device to my pc and run the ddms.bat file but nothing happens when I run it.

    Ok, so now that I know how to take screen shots (thanks mysticmead :) ) I can show what I'm talking about.


    The two middle buttons looks like a photo/video button and a music button but when I click on them nothing happens. The alarm button on the right works and the home button works.

    no... our phone have the HTC versions of music player and gallery.. the stock Android clock is trying to launch the Stock Android versions of those apps.

    Fresh 2.1.2 is out.. one of the vanilla lockscreen fix files removes the HTC stuff and puts the Android apps in.. that lets the buttons work correctly.

    Ok cool..thanks. Haven't played with the clocks and alarms, just thought that might be a possible solution to the issue.
