    When using WidgetLocker, whenever i lock my phone (sometimes do it unconsciously as a habit) and then unlock it immediately, the regular lock screen shows up for a second, then it goes to the WidgetLocker screen. I did some searching and seems like a common problem but no one has a solid answer except for rooting the device which i don't really want to do. Is there any other solution that anyone has come across?

    It's some kind of 5 second rule, there should be a message that shows up when this happens if you use the stock lockscreen slider to try to unlock.

    This is similar but i don't think this is it. It's when i press the LOCK button not the HOME button. I thought this might be the issue so i left the phone at the home screen for 10 seconds or so, then locked and unlocked it right away and same issue.

    I don't think i will be using this app unless i root the phone. Thanks for the responses though

    Rooting it will help bypass the rule also if you make it system persistent with the notification icon it also helps

    Note that this isn't something created by WidgetLocker - this is built into Android. Both the "Root Bypass" and "HomeHelper" (if your phone's not rooted) are attempts at circumventing an OS limitation.
