    Hey guys i got my htc evo 4g about 3 weeks ago. I really like the Nexus one or standard android lockscreen slider. Is there anyway I can get the lockscreen and slider from nexus one onto my evo?

    Try LockBot in the Android Marketplace. It should do what you want. It has a free and paid version. I haven't tried it out, but the reviews are good.

    By the way, here is the developers website:

    I have downloaded that, but I dont like the fact that it wont match my background that I have if I unlock the phone. Is there any other way? Maybe uninstall the HTC lockscreen app thats included in the "Manage Applications" menu.

    I think the HTC lockscreen app IS the Sense lockscreen.

    If an app is listed in Manage Applications, it's already installed.

    Well it doesn't give me the option to uninstall it, what should I do to get rid of it. or should I get rid of it at all (I am afraid I may break the OS).

    I think if you buy it you can edit it however you want.
    You can take different locks and put in different wallpapers and mix&match.

    However, I don't like the little bit of lag in between swiping out of the lock screen and the home screen. Maybe it's just me.
    It's more apparent when you go from lock screen to homescreen with the same background. I guess I should just change the background and the little bit of lag will seem less apparent.

    If I remember correctly, after the last update you are not able to uninstall sense. You will probably have to run a ROM after routeing your phone to get it to do what you want.

    Just keep in mind that will VOID your warranty. As for me I'm not going to route my phone until they release an OEM ROM Doctor so you can restore your phone back to factory settings if you by chance it turns into a Brick!

    You still can shut off Sense (clear data, clear cache, clear defaults and then force stop), but they took away the standard Android option. You need something like Launcher Pro instead.

    Is launcher Pro the same ui as Android?

    It is a little different, but you can change the options to make it look and feel (as far I have noticed, and I have used both) identical to the stock launcher.

    As for the lock screen, AFAIK there is no way to actually change it without rooting the phone, and even then most of the custom ROMs don't have it because using the AOSP/vanilla/Nexus One style lock screen was causing problems with the power button long hold menu. Currently Fresh 0.5.3 has a way to turn it on, and have it work pretty well, perhaps some others do.

    LockBot may be the best way to go about it.

    But even if you use LockBot + Launcher Pro, or get a rom with the stock launcher and lock screen, you are still using the sense dialer, contact app, messaging app, etc. in most cases. So there are a few "AOSP" style ROMs which mostly make it stock, and then there are a couple of totally AOSP ROMs, most are FroYo right now, but the camera won't work.

    So is there isn't any way i can get the stock android lockscreen without rooting my phone and installing a custom ROM? I really dont want to root it because I tried it once or twice and I failed and I cant find a proper tutorial to do it, and if I do then it is very complex

    if you guys have rooted phones then is easy to remove HTC Lockscreen.apk by renaming it to HTC Lockscreen.bak or w/e you wanted to rename, also using a Root Explorer is easiest way to rename files. Remember to press r/w (on) to read and write items. I'm using HTC evo 3D Rooted and Running MikRunny Rom which have got a cool camera, and i'm also using WidgetLocker as my Default Lockscreen is such cool... i havent tried to rename HTC lockscreen.apk yet because i'm trying it right now after i used nandroid backup if something goes wrong i can do Restore back. I just found this and i think it will work and i Hope because HTC lockscreen the Sense is on the way,,, sometime i open my device the HTC lockscreen will promp up and the WidgetLocker always Delay... so i hate this,, the HTC Lockscreen is just on the way! Like i'm also using FullScreen caller ID (which have fullscreen/custom wallpaper calls) when someone call me when my phone is lock... then i have to bypass HTC lockscreen to answer a call so its so annoying.... i Hope renaming HTC lockscreen.apk will help! + HTC sense is slowing down my phone and also people was thinking what drains battery? its because HTC sense used alot of memories... alot of running inside... i'm using also Defference launchers to and custom statusbar with the ROM so in my phone cant be seen the HTC Sense... but it still laggin because of HTC Sense running... all i can do is Flash a Custom rom which have no HTC sense but i dont have much time to do it. (IF YOU GUYS HAVE ANY QUESTION YOU CAN ASK ME, I WILL ANSWER AS FAST AS POSSIBLE VIA MY HTC EVO 3D! And sorry about this caps ) i have got 3 years ipod touch 3G 32GB Jailbroken and modded, 1 year iphone 4 32GB jailbroken and modded experience and now is android =) already 4 month mod
