    Default How to get stock Android Unlock Screen

    Hey guys, just recently rooted my phone and have skyraider 2.5.2 and 2.05 radio. I was wondering if there is a way to delete or change some file to go back to the stock android unlock screen. I know there is that no lock app but I am not interested in that.

    Thanks in advance!

    All credit goes to ihtfp69 from XDA for this.

    Not 100% sure it'll work on Skyraider, but it worked just fine for me with the first leak.

    Just remove or rename /system/app/HtcLockScreen.apk and /system/app/HtcLockScreen.odex in recovery. Make sure your system partition is mounted first. If you do this, you will not be able to use the alarms until you get a vanilla Desk Clock installed.

    here's the code -

    adb shell
    rm /system/apps/HtcLockScreen.apk
    rm /system/apps/HtcLockScreen.odex

    I tried this before on a rooted, stock 2.1 with Sense and it worked, except the swipe graphics moved up and down, instead of left to right. Also the clock was all messed up. I'd be interested to hear if this works properly on a different ROM.

    This may be a stupid question, but how do I enter those command lines? In the Andorid SDK? I tried that but it couldn't find my phone. Any help is appreciated

    Phone needs to have usb debugging turned on.
    1. Menu --> Settings --> Applications --> Development --> usb debugging
    2. Reboot your phone into recovery volume down + power.
    3. Mount the /system partition in the partitions menu.

    Then you need to open up an adb instance.
    "Default location is C:\android-sdk-windows\tools\adb"

    You need to open it with cmd prompt.

    Start button run / or inside search box , type 'cmd' hit enter.
    cd/
    cd C:\android-sdk-windows\tools
    adb shell
    mv /system/app/HtcLockScreen.apk /system/app/HtcLockScreen.bak
    mv /system/app/HtcLockScreen.odex /system/app/HtcLockScreen.odex.bak

    You can replace mv with rm if you want to delete them instead of rename them. If you decide to do rm instead the command would be slightly different, and remember Android stuff is case sensitive!!

    rm /system/app/HtcLockScreen.apk
    rm /system/app/HtcLockScreen.odex

    I suggest you use the mv command (move) instead of rm(remove) in case you decide to revert back at anytime!

    Now place the deskclock.apk into the C:\android-sdk-windows\tools directory and issue, in cmd prompt, this command:

    cd/
    cd C:\android-sdk-windows\tools
    adb push DeskClockGoogle.apk /system/app/DeskClockGoogle.apk

    Restart your phone. Done and everything installed!

    Thanks a lot for the post Qazme. But it seems I am not able to figure it out with your clear instructions. I think it might have something to do with the SDK not being properly installed on my computer. I have USB debugging on and I boot into recovery and mount the /system files. But when I try the command line cd C:\android-sdk-windows\tools I get a "The system cannot find hte path specified" message. Any ideas? Thanks so much!

    once your at the cmd prompt type cd \
    then cd \sdk
    then cd \tools
    that will put you into your sdk tools folder
    oops I did it again

    You must have installed your SDK to a different location. Just substitute what I have with what you have. C:\"location of installation"\tools

    Only if he has renamed his SDK installation folder to sdk. That's what I do for easy and the command ends up being:

    cd/
    cd /sdk/tools
