    Hi guys,

    So I have been wondering if you can change animation of the lockscreen. In my HtC Inspire (4g) when you lock the phone it just makes the screen black and thats it. Yesterday my friend showed me new phone he got. It was Nexus One I believe. Whenever he locks his phone or unlocks the screen looks like Old Tv. I managed to find video so here's the video of what I mean.
    Lock screen animation on gingerbread - YouTube

    A lot of people recommended apps like widget lockscreen but it wasn't what i was looking for. (My htc isn't rooter or anything) So if you have any idea leave a comment below :D

    You would have to root your phone. Unless someone develops an app like it or att/htc releases an update that allows that feature.

    You would have to use a ROM that had that feature in it. I would ask some questions in the root section here for the inspire maybe someone knows which rom exactly has that animation you want.

    Edit: you may also want to check into whether or not the current root methods for the inspire work with the new gingerbread update.
