Seems I had taken a screenshot of my lock screen and *that* is what I set as my lock screen wallpaper. Once I tried a default wallpaper all was fine. When I went back to input what I wanted from my gallery, I realized I'd chosen a photo from the screenshot folder. Very red faced here.
Never seen this before, but suddenly after a factory reset I have two clocks overlapping one another on the lock screen. It's not like a ghosting effect, but you can tell they're overlapping because their alignment is slightly different from one another. They are two different times, an AM and a PM. Very weird!
In Settings --> I have:
Multiple Widgets uncheckedLock Screen Widgets --> Clock or Personal Message = ClockDual Clock OFFClock size = have tried all sizesShow Date = uncheckedShortcuts = OFF but they are showing up anyway which is fine, I usually have shortcuts there but turned off trying to get rid of one of these clocks.
I also just noticed that all the icons at the very top have ghosts and they're all blurry.
I am plan B and AVG security installed, both don't always work, I have pattern lock on the phone but even in pattern lock mode when i press and hold power button the phone gives me option to shutdown.
If someone steals my phone they will be able to shut it off without unlocking it since holding down power button still works. So is there a way to lock the power button from shutting off phone when the phone is in pattern unlock mode?
I seem to have a bug with my WL on my Note 3. Whenever I scroll my notification bar down or hold the power button to mute my phone, widgetlocker seems to overlap these menus. And its quite distracting.
So since I've been using the new jelly bean OS 4.2 I've noticed how the wonderful widgets automatically move as you attempt to place 1 but I've also noticed that the widgets take up more space in the need some times. Try placing the analog clock on 1 of your screens and then place icons around it, you will see that if you could overlap widgets or overlap widgets and icons you could use your screen real estate more efficiently.
A Tasker task that when I'm on the lockscreen, I can tap or double tap to turn the screen off. I've looked in the Tasker tasks and I'm unable to find anything for this. I already use the Nova gesture+ScreenOff app to turn the screen off when I'm unlocked and at the homescreen, which works perfectly. The only thing Nova can't do it turn the screen off from the lockscreen.
I have a samsung vibrant. Every time i plug it in its charger, the lock screen will not lock amd if m doing something, the sensitivity of the screen will be thrown of. It doesn't do that if i plug,it,in a computer usb, it doesn't,do that and charges normally. Is that a wide spread issue.
For those of you who would like to spice up their lock screen, I have created an image of a master lock, that stretches as you slide across the screen!I have included a screen shot of this in action, as well as a link to the .9.png - which needs to be installed using NinjaMorph.I'm loving it, let me know what you think!MultiUpload Download Master Lock .9.PNG
What i'm trying to achieve probably requires an app, and I realise there are a couple of different ways I could go about it. I'm going to deploy 30 android tablets to a classroom in the College where I work, and since I love android, i'd rather not see this little experiment fail. Through a combination of "App Lock" and a widely distributed MDM, I have been able to accomplish most of my requirements, however i'd still like to be able to lock down the home screen, in particular, remove the ability for users to change the wallpaper (I have a nightmare that this feature would be abused from day one!).
I have looked at using different launchers (tried Apex and Smart Launcher) which nicely lock down the home screen, but they still allow users to change the launcher preferences which makes that approach a bit pointless.
my lock screen has a line of gibberish on it. At the top is the date/time an volume control, then a line across the screen as normal. Below the line to the left is like a status area, it normaly says nothing, or says Charging %% (if plugged in) or connect charger (if low battery). but for some reason this week if it is not low battery or charging, it has a line of jibberish that goes almost the whole way across the scree. is ~~~~~~+~~~~~aaqa~~a~~+~ What does this mean & how do I get it off my screen. It doesn't seem to effect the phone functioning. & as soon as I unlock the screen it goes away. So more of an annoyance then anything, but I want my phone to be working perfectly.
I have a Motorola Razr Maxx that is running the latest OS, and is rooted. I recently broke my screen and cannot get past the lock screen so I can start my VNC server (to continue using my phone without the screen). I have searched through what seems to be all posts on bypassing pattern lock and I have not been able to succeed yet due to permission denial for super user in ADB, not having sqlite3 on my phone, and not being able to flash anything onto it in recovery mode.
how to bypass the lock screen without any use of the touchscreen? I have debugging mode on, and I have a access to view what is on the screen via hdmi cable or remote viewer.
I've got the screenlock password on my Galaxy Note. It's in English layout (it was originally entered in Swipe keyboard). Then I've changed the Settings to Samsung keyboard and French layout (same latin letters) and switched off the screen. Now my pass is not working as I cannot change layout to English (the settings button on keyboard is grey). So would you recommend any solution as I don't want to wipe all the data. Is it possible to change layout to original English or reset password somehow?
I am having a problem with my galaxy s2 which I just updated the firmware to ICS 4.0.3 via Kies but now whenever I lock the screen and then press the home or lock button again the lock screen does not show, I see the home screen or whatever screen I was viewing before pressing the lock button (in settings I configured pattern, PIN and password, but the same happens in all scenarios). I already tried factory reset but nothing changes,
I have Tasker on my phone, since I just downloaded the app a few days ago. I have been trying to create a profile where if im connected to my home wifi, the lock pattern on my lockscreen will be off. if im not connected to my home wifi network, I want the lock pattern to be back on. I followed Armandas guide on YouTube but it did not work for me. BTW im on a Galaxy s2, using a 4.2.2 ROM with the DashClock widget as my default lock screen.
I was just wondering if it is at all possible to modify the lock screen on android? I don't mean replace it with an app or anything like that. I mean for example, if someone were to input the incorrect passcode is it possible to have a little "special" message if the pin is wrong?
