AndroidLock for HTC Leo (HD2)
If you have an HTC Leo but don´t have an Android ROM on it, maybe you would like to have a different lock screen with an Android style. XDA member Zephnath presents AndroidLock, this application will let you have useful information on your locked screen with a different look. The updated version 1.3 includes some new features and fixes like added support for Energy Roms, support for all HD2 ROMs, fixed appointments list going off screen, refined the slider images to look more like the actual Android slider, developer kit, and add-ons.
This app was tested on Omnia 2 as well and may work on other devices as well, please let us know.

Drake Arts AndroidLock v1.3
Most ROMs now supported. Just install the cab and the enjoy.
*****Warning, ROMs based off 29005 are not supported. Something with the system file on the ROM causes the lock screen to act erratically if the Lock Screen registry keys are modified. It is not only Energy ROMs, but is any ROM using 29005 as the ROM base. If you are a 29005 User, you can try this cab which could be a possible fix Ninja Duck 29005 cab (I have not tested this, use at your own risk), otherwise DO NOT install.*****
For developers who wish to mod, skin, or create their own AdroidLock app, here is a link to the developer kit.
