Anyone know if we can change the lock screen from the sense lock to the vanilla lock screen?
If you have a general knowledge of android and developing you could say.
Sure, you can.
That is a good point. Perhaps I should rephrase my question.
Has anyone successfully swapped the Sense lock screen for the Vanilla lock screen on BakedSnack 1.7?
and with that,
I'm sure people have changed it, but there's no public release for 2.2
Get into the system/app folder, and mount it for r/w.
Scroll down to HtcLockScreen.apk, rename it to HtcLockScreen.bak.
Remount back to r/o, reboot the phone, and it will come back up in the vanilla lock screen.
What's the easiest way to accomplish this?... pardon my laziness to search for a way to edit protected files
IMO, the easiest, simplest way would be to buy Root Explorer from the market for about three bucks and change. It'll do the job in seconds. Rebooting the phone takes longer than finding and renaming the file.
You could also do it manually for free via ADB from your PC, or install a terminal app and run the commands from the phone. Root Explorer is much easier, and a very useful app to own.
Downloaded Root Explorer, changed HTClockscreen.apk to .bak and now am successfully running the vanilla lock screen with BakedSnack!
and i guess renaming the ext back to .apk gets me back to the usual lock screen?
Yes. You can delete the file, but renaming it makes it easy to go back to stock.
