Avlock[x]: a Real, System-Level Lock Screen Replacement
Xda-member _avatar was tired of having to connect the dots of his Nexus One lockscreen together, so he decided to make a full lockscreen replacement.
The new lock screen is in my opinion not such a huge improvement (though I like it), but it’s the first real system-level lock screen. This means that it isn’t third-party software running on top of Android, but the new lock screen is placed in the system itself.

avlk[x] is a (the first?) real, *system-level* lock screen replacement for Android (CM 5.0.6).
it replaces the standard “connect the dots” behavior with pin-like mechanism. patterns can be arbitrarily large, and nodes can be repeated. also, there are no numbers — just circles. definitely not for everyone, but i think some people may like it.
here’s how it works:
if you want to try it you must have CM 5.0.6 installed, then:
1. reboot to bootloader
2. nandroid backup <– do it. seriously. just in case.
3. flash avlk[x].zip
5. if you don’t have a lock pattern already, set one: Home > Menu > Settings > Location and Security > Set Unlock Pattern
