    Good to hear that you kinda figured it out.

    I checked my phone and I get the 'drag to unlock' message every time, and I don't have any apps installed, other than the ones that the phone came with.

    Default Re: No "drag" required to unlock?

    Well I've been uninstalling various apps to try & found the culprit & I'm sad to say it the excellent Notify Me.

    A system wide notification reminiscent of iOS. I'll be sorry not to be able to use it. I'll be getting in touch with the developer tomorrow & hopefully he'll be able to sort it out.

    My lockscreen now works as it's supposed to.
    If I have any more info of the developer I'll post it here.

    On further investigation with other notify apps or seems that any Accessibility service when switched on will cause the lockscreen to unlock with just a tap.

    There may be something in the code of these apps that keep the lockscreen awake & only partially locked so notifications can come through.

    It looks as if only htc can sorry this out.

    leebo,

    Wow...thank you so much. This has been driving me crazy. That was some seriously good detective work.

    I can add that while I don't have that app, I do have Notifier Pro Plus, so apparently that genre of notification apps, are conflicting with our lock screens. Mystery solved, and thanks again!

    Default Re: No "drag" required to unlock?

    OK I think I found it, after spending another 5 hours setting up/configuring my phone. I did the factory reset via Clockworkmod, phone reboots and works perfectly (drag to unlock, dismissing calls). So I start reinstalling apps, configuring accounts. Everything is great, I get everything installed, organized into folders (I have a lot of apps I use). All the while as I'm installing apps I'm checking the unlock and its sitll working. I think it's a fluke, then I start Light Flow, recover my saved settings and let it use root via SuperSU. Now the lock screen is broken. So it's either Light Flow or its SuperSu. Sigh. I'm going to reset again, switch to Super User and see if that makes a difference.

    Leebo, Are you using either SuperSU or Light Flow?

    Edit: OK so I missed your earlier posts (forgot to refresh my browser and go to page two!). I can confirm it is simply turning on Accessibility for an app (my culprit was Light Flow - I didn't even have to setup the app, just turning on accessibility broke the lock screen). Turning Accessibility back off fixes the problem, which is good, since I did a back up before resetting my phone.

    This is a pretty big problem - I can't use my Pebble watch or Tasker or a number of other things. Does this happen on any version of the One? Mine's the Developer Edition. Is it only happening on phones with unlocked bootloaders or rooted?

    Default No "drag" required to unlock?

    Mine is a regular locked AT&T model with no modification, as-is right out of the box, and has the same problem.

    Interesting, kinda hard to believe this sort of bug made it through QA, but there you go, these are complex devices. I've decided to live with it for now as I don't want to give up the functionality ofTasker and my Pebble watch. Hopefully we'll get an answer from HTC if this is a known bug and if the fix is in that update that's working its way through Europe.

    Please let me know what I'm missing here!
    I think that may be an issue with the Podcast app your are using. i use Pocket Casts and using the lock screen controls does not unlock my phone.

    I also have to drag to unlock. Tapping does nothing.

    It's due to the "accessibility" bug, not the podcast player. If you have accessibility turned on for any app then any touch of the lock screen will unlock it. If I turn off accessibility for all my apps (I have three) then everything functions correctly (drag to unlock, podcast/music controls, etc.).

    Just FYI I have managed to get a formal issue logged with HTC, it's been escalated up the ladder. Should get a response back in 7 days or so (my guess is that will just be a verification though, it's going to take a release to fix this).

    Hi
    This issue is a bug. Check accessibility settings. As soon as you let any application have the accessibility right the lock screen is broken.
    It will unlock at a touch and answer incoming calls with the slightest touch.
    Test it out, turn off the setting and see how the lock screen should work.

    My pebble app is the one that gets me.

    I have also encountered this same issue with both the AT&T HTC One and the Developer Edition of the phone. I've actually notified 2 different HTC contacts that have been participating in a discussion about the HTC One on Reddit. You can find the discussion here:

    EDIT: (If you search for my handle, "DisconnectedChild", that will take you to the relevant posts in the Reddit thread).

    One of them already got some of the HTC engineers to reply to this issue but it's still ongoing because they didn't seem to try using any third party apps that have an accessibility component, like the Pebble app or Light Flow. Hopefully they'll continue to follow up on this and issue an update to fix it.

    Yeah, it is definitely the Pebble app for me. Once accessibility is turned on, the screen becomes single touch for shortcuts and otherwise. I really hope they fix this issue, because I like the drag to unlock and I obviously want to continue using my Pebble.

    WOW! Thank you! I had a couple small lockscreen issues and your discovery lead me to turning off the accessibility setting for Tasker (don't need that part of the functionality) and it works exactly as it should now. I thought it was a minor bug, but this solves it! Thanks! Hopefully HTC will improve/fix the lock screen and will likely happen with the jump to 4.2.2 since that should offer lockscreen widgets.

    I've been trying to figure out what suddenly caused this for the last two nights. You are correct. As soon as I disabled the Accessibilty settings for "Missed Message Flasher", the problem was resolved. Now if I could only get "Knock2+" to actually do what its supposed to do, I would be completely content with my HTC One.

    Thanks All

    Did you ever figure out what caused the behavior? I've been seeing the same for a few days, and have no idea how to fix it!

    [Sorry - hadn't seen the accessibility issue - I don't recall giving any app accessibility settings, but now I know what to look for!]

    In my case, it was Desktop Notifications, which I'd turned on for an app. Now I guess I have to decide how much I want those notifications.

    Thanks much to those who figured out the problem.

    I'm really hoping with the 4.2.2 update, but so far I haven't found anyone with that update that can confirm.

    FYI Brian Klug over at Anandtech has confirmed the 4.2.2 update for the non-Google Play HTC One's does correct this issue - now if we can just get that release for our US phones!
