    Anyone found a good lock screen replacement? Ive tried LockBot and Lock 2.0 neither seemed to work correctly on the X.

    Lockbot would have a double lock screen, it would show the regular lock screen then its own lock screen so youd have to unlock it twice, also whenever you hit the home button it would ask you if you wanted to set LockBot as your home from now on, even after you set your default home. With Lock2.0 i couldnt change the background image or theme.

    Try this

    "go into lockbot, disable it in config.

    back out of it, lock the phone.

    you should just get the stock locker

    then go back in and enable lockbot

    back out


    you should just get lockbot locker now

    Widgetlocker works well for me. I did have an issue with a double lock screen when I tested using my work exchange email, but that is the only time I had a double lock screen. It does wallpaper as well as supporting widgets ON the lock screen.

    +1 on widgetlocker. I didnt like it at first but once i finally got everything set up properly I love it now. Plus it got rid of the lag from the locker sceen to the main screen which is a huge bonus

    I have a problem with Widgetlocker. It works great if you don't use security lock. But if you turn on security then I have to: 1. Unlock the Widgetlocker slide 2. Unlock the stock DX slide (What? Why?) 3. Enter my security code. If I turn off security, it's great, but if I lose my phone, the finder will have access to everything, and that's not ok. Did you guys find a work around to the double-unlock with widgetlocker when security is enabled?

    Settings-->security--> uncheck Screen lock. Then click on security lock-->security lock type-->pick one (pattern or passcode)-->back, then security lock timer--->when display is off. exit

    Now you will unlock just widget locker slider, then straight to your security code

    I like WidgetLocker as well. The bugs that bother me are if the phone has been asleep for a while, WidgetLocker will disappear and the stock locker returns. When I receive a phone call, sometimes WidgetLocker is there, sometimes not. It did remove the lag from unlocking the phone and adding a few essential widgets is nice. Not sure if it's worth a few bucks though.

    Crud, it turns out that this is not good enough. This fixes the problem I asked about, but then I lose my "slide to answer" and then I get the pocket answer problem. Slide to answer goes away when I turn off "screen lock". I've tried every setting in widget locker to bring back slide to answer without turning android screen lock back on, but none work.

    I had WidgetLocker and loved it, but I deleted it since when I'm playing music, the default music app's lockscreen controls didn't show up.. anyway to fix that?

    yeah, but the music player widget on your widget locker lock screen

    Yeah, but I wanted a way to actually go back a song, too.

    Please do tell how you got the black notification bar. Did you root?

    You could try mxzing. The text only widget looks almost identical to the stock widget, but it has a back button

    You have to root to get the black notification bar.
