    Hey y'all, now that I've rooted, is there any way to change the useless lock screen on the EVO to something more useful without having to use buggy programs which eventually fail such as WidgetLocker or MyLock Pro?

    I have never used widget locker so I can't speak for or against it. However, here is where I would go if I wanted to switch my lockscreen (and I have a few times).

    [COLLECTION] Lock Screen MODS [UPDATED 8/4] - xda-developers

    Or, if you just want the vanilla lock screen I believe this should work:

    adb remount
    adb shell rm /system/app/HtcLockScreen*
    adb reboot.

    or go to [THEME]▄ █ ▄ LowRider ▄ █ ▄ Theme [Sense] v2.7 UPDATED 11/7/2010 - xda-developers and download the "remove lockscreen" mod and then flash that and that will leave you with the vanilla lockscreen - my favorite.

    Good luck.
