Sense 3.0 Lockscreen From DoubleShot Working For Some GingerSense Roms
Are you drooling over the newest features present in Sense 3.0? For all EVO 4G owners out there, XDA member GODZSON was able to extract the lockscreen apk from the Doubleshot leaked rom and shared it as a stand alone apk, no need to flash via recovery. This means that you can get this working on a regular Sense Gingerbread rom without too much of an issue. The installation seems to be rather straight forward and it seems that this already works in at least 7 roms over at the EVO forums. This may also work for other Sense WVGA devices, so if you want, please take it for a spin and see how it turns out.
If you liked this and you got it to run in other roms than the ones listed, please be sure to share your findings with the rest of the community.
This works on Virus Ginger Rom.. not tested on other Ginger’s yet.. Thx to ChubbzLou, Lyrcal and me for testing.
Just apply apk as a normal apk install it’ll update lockscreen No need to flash in update.zip

Let us know your thoughts.
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...
