Removing The Lockscreen Shortcuts

Came across this little trick today while tinkering around... Not sure if it's common knowledge, but it's news to me!

I can't stand the shortcuts on the Sense 3.0 Wallpaper Lockscreen. They are too close to the ring, and I can't think of any app I would ever need that quick, that I couldn't just put on my homescreen. :-\

So I was looking for a way to remove them... Of course, no option. So here's an easy work around.

Install an app you don't care about... Anything that is a regular app (no widgets) that shows up in the app drawer.

Now go in to Personalize > Lockscreen > Wallpaper Lockscreen > Settings.

Set all 4 of the rings to launch the app you don't care about. Hit OK.

Once your lockscreen is all set to have 4 shortcuts of the worthless app, uninstall that app! Once it's gone, your Sense 3.0 lockscreen is alllll empty! Just a clock and a ring to pull down on.

One quick note... If you use a custom launcher (GoLauncher, LauncherPro, ADW, etc.) you will have to switch over to HTC Sense first, set the settings in Personalize, then return back to your launcher. :)

Just tried it. Leaves 4 bubbles empty that adapt to the background. Drag the icons and they are inactive.
