    Default Restore default lock screen

    Good evening everyone

    I haven't been able to figure this out but how do I restore the default lock screen? I tried Go Locker and I'm not really digging it. I went to settings -> application manager but I don't see a way to restoreb application defaults.

    Thank you in advance!

    Actually I did. And within Go Locker/launcher I was able to turn it off. I did uninstall it and that prevented it from coming back. But I thought there was another way. I don't want to have to uninstall an app to go back to defaults.

    yeah, at the same time theres no point having an app u dont need lol.
    think u could have went to Go Locker in app manager and tapped "clear defaults" but im not sure on that one, it works with launchers etc.
    have u tried widget locker? it takes a bit of playing with but u can basicly make your lock screen like a home screen with widgets etc
    i like mine simple though

    True true. I did go into the app manager for Go and Clear Defaults was grayed out.

    oh well youre best rid of it anyway, its sluggish and unreliable. i gave up on it and Go Launcher bout a month ago and havent looked back. still love Go Sms though even if it is bloated and laggy, nice big letters i can read drunk withot my specs

    So you prefer WidgetLocker? I heard good things about Nova Launcher and am thinking of giving that a shot.

    nova is beautiful, so fresh and snappy. get the payed one though for the gestures etc (i know every nova prime feature is free on go launcher but nova makes the s3 feel like the powerphone that it is.
    plus you can import your present touchwiz set-up to it.
    what launcher do u use mate?

    Currently im using touchwiz. It came with the phone. I havent had it long and I was just turned onto new launchers lock screens. Which I really want becaue touchwiz keeps freezing.

    Out of curiosity why does Nova Launcher require root access?

    it doesnt mate. im not rooted
    since u have your folders etc set up on Touchwiz, itl be really painless moving to nova prime, just import them

    Yeah I'm playing with it now and it's pretty cool. It doesn't come with a lock screen though. Correct? Hence why you use WidgetLocker?
