Make your ICS Lockscreen Look Like HC’s on your Nexus S
Lockscreen mods are always a nice way out of the monotonous one that we have to live with on a day to day basis. Because of this, we see that there is a myriad of applications, lockscreen replacement apps, add-ons, and a bunch of other cool things to do with the screen that greets us every time we turn the device on. If you have loaded ICS on your Nexus S and simply feel that it is missing that extra oomph that came from the Honeycomb lockscreen, XDA member evilisto has you covered.
According to the dev, his original objective was to try and port the entire lockscreen to ICS, but was not very successful. So, he decided to try and re-create it from scratch by adding all the effects that we come to love from the honey bee OS. The resemblance to the original thing is quite close, but if you want to take it one step further, the dev has gone ahead and made an extra 3 designs to satisfy your urge for something totally different. Evilisto has been able to create one lockscreen with octagonal ripples instead of circular, one with a droid in the middle (with ripples to match), and one with the Chrome logo as well.
The zip files are device specific, so be careful as to which one you flash (thanks Will for the heads up). Please leave some feedback for the dev if you happen to try it.
frankly, i tried to change lockscreen itself to honeycomb’s one but failed
so i modified lockscreen animation like honeycomb’s wave ripple. the result is far from original but not bad (i think )
