    Got this new HTC One X+. Loving the speed, screen, and playing with it. Frustrated that I can't get anywhere near the functionality on the lockscreen I had with my old iPhone 4 jailbroken running Intelliscreen X. Looks like Jelly Bean 4.2 is a step in the right direction with lockscreen widgets so I guess I have to wait for HTC to update (guessing months) or an XDA Developer to publish a ROM (cleanrom? CM10?)

    Any advice on what to do to get me the closest. I'm surprised there's all this spacing around the icons and widgets - really defeats the purpose of taking advantage of such a big screen. I want the widgets to butt up against one another and be able to expand/collapse them like on Intelliscreen X.

    Help!

    Never used an iPhone so I don't know what that is but what did you get on the lockscreen that you can't on the One X+?

    You do know you can go to Personalise and change the lockscreen notifications?

    Yep. Just discovered it. A step in the right direction but far from Intelliscreen. For example, the Go SMS Widget (and others) if you make it one row high there isn't much info (sender name but can't see the message). Since there is no way to expand/collapse, you can't fit too much useful on there.

    Big problem is, the Phone and Mail App Icons don't show unread counts like the stock HTC lockscreen (and home screen) does. Tried installing the Tesla Unread Count Plugin but didn't make any difference. I'm guessing Tesla Unread isn't compatible with this latests Sense (4.5 aka +) or Android 4.1.1. Probably the former. Hope maybe it's me. Otherwise, without unread counts on lockscreen, I have to go back to the HTC lockscreen. Bummer.
