    When the screen is locked, is there anyway to display the media controls? A ROM I was recently on had the media controls show up right up the unlock controls..i.e. Pause button, Play, Skip...etc.

    Try Widget Locker... never used it but I have seen some reviews on it and seems pretty extensive on what you can do with it.

    and it works with "most" media playback. Can't recall off the top of my head, but some steams like Slacker Radio, you won't see the controls when locked.

    But when playing audio on the phone, or if you click a link on a page that will stream an MP3, that would have lock screen controls.

    I guess Pandora doesn't work either. I never have lock screen controls when using Pandora.

    I use widgetlocker and love it.
    you can put any widget on, including pandora, and it works great.

    I've included a screencap of my lockscreen for you to see. the widgets are winamp-w/o album art, beautiful widgets home, pandora, and the minimalist lock slider.

    Thanks. It works with the default Music app but not Cubed (3) from what I can tell. I'll start using the default Music app for a bit.
