LockScreen Mod For JL5 On Vibrant
If you’ve been getting a bit bored of the same old lockscreen and have recently upgraded to the leaked JL5 firmware on your Samsung Vibrant, check out this mod from XDA forum member untermensch.
The LockScreen mod is specifically for the recently leaked JL5 firmware and the dev has helpfully given users a choice – you can pick the deodex zip file for custom ROMs or the stock zip file if you flashed with Odin or Heimdall.

For more information and to download the file of your choice, head on over to the modification thread.
