HD Mini Lockscreen Ported to VGA and WVGA Resolutions
Michyprima has been busy in the Software Development forum, working on a port of the redesigned lockscreen from the HD Mini. It’s gone from its original HVGA resolution to the more common VGA and WVGA variations.
Lockscreen features a simpler, sleeker design than those currently found on Windows Mobile 6.5 devices, and will also show a wider range of notifications (including missed calls, incoming texts and unread emails).
Interested users must remember to disable their PIN lock, as it is not currently featured on this release. Not doing so yet still installing lockscreen requires a hard-reset to make the device usable again.
The port is designed for Windows Mobile 6.5+ and is available as a .cab file in the application thread. Several languages are currently available, including English and German.
