    I watched the video and noticed that the original Evo lockscreen showed up in between the screen going off and on. Does that happen alot?

    It never does for me. It might have been whatever ROM he was running has a slow redraw of the screen.

    But, each handset is different, so what works great on mine might show the old lockscreen on yours. However, as I stated above, I never even detected a hint of the old lockscreen on mine.

    I tried Goto Lockscreen and it works pretty good. I do have two problems though... it doesn't seem like the app itself cooperates with the systems screen timeout function. Whenever I wake the screen after it times out or if I press power, there's a glitch that shows the launcher selector. Also, this app forces me to lose function of the Home button, which I use alot.

    Someone at XDA recommended Widget Locker. I think I'll try that before I make my final decision. Thanks for you help bro!
