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.

Additionally, uploaded is the source zip file, which is for developers looking to port the mod to other ROMs and devices.

Please note that the framework-res.apk is a little larger, so you will need to ensure to allow enough memory on the system partition in order to install.

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

Huawei: A Giant the Western World Should Look Out For

The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
