Fresh 1.1 lock screen is clear. I personally do not like that, BUT when I try to load another one via Pre-kitchen, it loads, reboots, and its still the same. I click to clear cached lock screen, reboots, still the same. Anyone know why it won't change? the boot screen changed first try, so that is good, just that damn lock screen. I don't like the clear thingy.
I hate the lock screen on the Hero, I know their is a way to turn it off, but i don't like getting a message and then the phone doing something in my pocket. Is their a way to extract the .apk of the lock screen from the droid, and just install it on the hero, I understand that the resolution on the hero is different, but hate the current lock screen, i have to slide it down 2-3 times for it to recognize. I downloaded lock 2.0 already on the market, its not bad. but it takes 3-4 seconds on my phone to actually give me the slide to unlock screen.
Made this video to show a friend what this custom ROM was all about, figured i could share it with those that might be interested. Really shows off its speed and style. YouTube - HTC Hero ROOTED Fresh 1.1 ROM
My boss has an iphone and hes got some app that basically displays his schedule for the day and any other info he wants to add on his lock screen. Anyone seen anything like this for android?I've searched on some sites and through the market and found nothing yet.
I was looking through these instructions here: Fix: Working Vanilla Lock screen + Alarm for 2.1 Geek For Me - Android CDMA Sprint Hero But I am still a little new at this and am confused as to how to just put the vanilla lock screen on. The Phone is rooted and running DC 2.08
I tried searching for this topic but I couldnt find it. I just upgraded my htc hero to android 2.1. I never set a password for the lock screen. So it ended up putting a password on its own. I called sprint tech support and talked to them for about an hour and finally figured out that the password is my google account password. Thats all well and good but I am not a big fan of password protecting my phone because I really dont have any information of value on it, but I do like having the lock screen so I dont pocket diel. I found a few programs that will disable the lock screen that will get around this problem, kind of. Does anyone have a clue how to disable the password protection and still keep the lock screen. Its just really irritating because I dont usually lock my phone and every time I try to wake it I have to unlock it.
I switched phones the other day.The 1st phon eI was able to set my lock screen with a provided wall papar. On teh new phone, it says I have no photos and will not let me go to wallpapers. Could this be because I hace swapped out the 2gig micro sd with a new sd card?Because I know I did it on the other phone.
Can I remove the lock screen function from my phone? I don't want my phone to have a screen lock. Just want to hit the power button (or any button) and have it turn on to whatever app was last open. I'm currently rooted with Fresh and Gumbo if it matters.
Ive done some searching and came up empty. I want to remove vanilla lock screen and re installing the htcsense lock screen. I tried just flashing a custom htcsense lock screen but that didnt work. I cant even figure out where vanilla lock screen is installed.
I've been reading on this forum even before I bought my Hero and found it to be very helpful. I am trying to figure out if I am able to install a rotary vanilla lock screen on my phone but without any luck. My hero is rooted but running a stock rom. Do I need to install a custom rom for me to install vanilla lock screen?
I am just getting tired of the lock screen on the Hero. My main problem with it is that, if I use the stock Messaging app, the messages show on the bottom...even though i have my phone locked with a pattern lock. I know I can use handcent and not have to deal with it, but I just want to know how to get rid of the stupid lock screen. I've read around a few places, and I know it's possible on 1.5, but I'm not too sure if it's possible for 2.1. Does anyone know where I can get instructions on who to disable the lock screen for 2.1, if it's even possible. My phone is rooted. Also, if I do disable the lock screen, and then i decide to put in a new ROM on my phone, what will happen?
I don't really like the lock screen for the Sprint Hero and I was wondering if there was a way to get rid of it and use the normal Android lock screen I have looked around but I can't seem to find any info about how to do this or if it's possible or if I would need root access to change something like this
I have a question, How do I reset my lock screen? I ask as I am root'd and rom'd and my Rom allows the Lock screen to be transparent. But I can't figure how to remove the picture I've already assigned.
i don't wanna beat a dead horse. currently running fresh 2.3.3 with vanilla lockscreen. just upgraded to the black vanilla one but only have the locks on it with the black background. no clock. anything i gotta do for this. also if i can't get a vanilla lock screen with a background on it how do i revert it to the normal htc one?
Is the lock screen customizable? I have a hacked iPhone with an application that shows my mail, incoming IMs, my calendar, etc. This is really handy when I want to take a quick look at something without getting all the way into my phone. Is something similar possible with the Hero?
I'm looking to find out if there are any custom lock screens I can flash. I don't like lockbot, as it bogs my phone on occasion. I've seen a few clear lock screens I haven't been interested in. I'm looking for a lock screen like eclair, or one of those that you slide left and right. Anyone know if 1) you can flash custom lock screens and 2) if so do you know where I can get one like what I described? Thanks!
1. Can't lock screen while in a call. Red button just hangs up the call.
2. Apps cannot be installed to sd card. Internal Phone Storage after a device wipe shows about 136MB free. I downloaded about 5 or 6 apps and the phone ran out of room. I deleted the apps, but the space was not reclaimed. This is why I had to reset the device. Now I am afraid to install apps without filling it up again.
3. Bluetooth does no always connect back to my headset. sometime I have to turn on/off bluetooth on phone. Sometimes I have to reboot phone. One time I installed Pandora and bluetooth would not work until I figured out that removing Pandora would fix it.
4. Camera is no good.
5. WIFI cannot connect to an N router running in mixed mode (a,b,g,n). You must "dumb" down the router to b,g mode in order to connect the phone. This means hat other users who have no issues with N have to suffer the reduced speed of b,g.
6. No way to "EXIT" an app to reclaim RAM.
7. KB not as accurate as the iphone.
8. I have disabled HTC Sense and it is still slow. For example, often when I load favorites, nothing displays for about 3-4 seconds. This is not acceptable.
Overall, not a very tested or mature OS. I feel like I should not be starting from scratch like this. The folks at Android are guilty of using the consumer as a guinea pig. This is not acceptable. We are not reinventing the wheel, so why are obvious features missing?
I know there are other threads on putting your phone on vibrate, but haven't found an answer to my particular issue. When I'm in the lock/unlock screen, I can go two ways. Swipe right and the phone unlocks, swipe left and the silent mode is on/off. Is there a way to make it go into vibrate mode on/off instead of silent? I NEVER use silent but I ALWAYS use vibrate, and would much rather make that quick switch at the lock/unlock screen than using locale or volume control after unlocking.
I kept rejecting phone calls whilst pulling the desire from my pocket, so I have switch the lock screen using lockbot to a side swipe instead, this is working very well.However, now when i receive a call it jumps straight to an answer or decline screen which is just as easy to reject by mistake.Does anyone know a solution this problem? I suppose what im looking for is to have to unlock the phone before answering the call.
