    Default Froyo like lock screen for 2.1

    Updated my Droid X to the leaked version of 2.2 yesterday but decided it was to buggy for me so I went back to 2.1.

    One of the best things in my opinion from 2.2 was the look of the lock screen, so I created a framework-res.apk for 2.1 that has the exact same lock screen look of 2.2 for those of you who would like it.

    Here It Is

    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    Beginner Instructions:

    **Phone must be rooted and only for Droid X on 2.1

    0. Put this .apk file on the root of your sd card.

    1. Point your command prompt to where your adb is located. Usually where you installed the sdk.

    2. Launch a shell on your device. Command: "adb shell" (without quotes)

    3. Access superuser permissions. Command: "su" (without quotes)

    4. Mount the system as writable. Command: "mount -o remount,rw -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system" (without quotes)

    5. Copy over the .apk to the systems framework. Command: "cp /sdcard/framework-res.apk /system/framework" (without quotes)

    6. Mount the system as read-only. Command: "mount -o remount,ro -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system" (without quotes)

    7. Reboot the system. Command: "reboot"

    8. Enjoy!

    AOKP or CM10

    Default Droid 1

    Any chance we can get this ported to the D1? I'd be stoked if it could happen!

    A port for the Evo would be nice as well.

    Love the new lock in 2.2 its one othe the great new things. The green 2.1 does not fit the whole black and red theme in the X. I have no issues yes with the 2.2 but this file is great for someone that wants a change without the whole thing.

    You have to load it onto your phone with adb into the systems framework to get this to work, also must be rooted. I'm updating the title now with instructions.

    Is it any different from widget locker lock screen?

    Nice job, wish this was available for EVO also. Great re-write BTW. Makes it pretty ***** proof.

    I am a little confused on step 1. Please excuse the lack of experience, this is my first android phone and am absorbing a lot in the last 3 weeks or so. I too went back to 2.1 because it was twitchy but looks super promising

    If you could explain what programs I need that would be cool, I just downloaded android sdk, was that the right one? The commands are very simple which you laid out perfectly.

    Looks like I need a ternminal app for the DX also? I found "Android shell terminal" in the app store...

    Thanks again

    no you dont need a terminal on your droid x, you use command prompt on your computer, youtube how to use command prompt and you point it to the "tools" folder in the sdk and then use the commands provided

    Would you be so kind to post what elements you changed in th framework-res? I have a modified framwork and would like to change it on my own on Milestone.
