The lockscreen is a part of the OS that we see hundreds of times every day, whether we're using Android or iOS. The look of the lockscreen depends on the Android version, device manufacturer or ROM chef. In short, it differs for almost every user. Luckily enough, users can use third party alternatives that bring more features. One such application is Hi Locker, developed by XDA Senior Member thotran7989.

TWRP 2.1 for the T-Mobile G2x and LG Optimus 2x
The LG Optimus 2x was the world’s first dual-core cell phone. Similarly, the carrier-branded T-Mobile G2x variant was the carrier’s first dual-core phone. It launched with great expectations, but fell miserably short for many users. Luckily for G2x owners like myself, we have XDA-Developers.
The most recent addition to the list of device-saving mods is the TeamWin Recovery Project recovery by XDA Recognized Developer helicopter88. Unlike other aftermarket recoveries, TWRP was built with ease of use and customization in mind. They started from the ground with AOSP recovery and added all the standard recovery options, and then added a slew of their own. First, it is entirely controlled by touch—no more wear and tear on those hardware keys! Additionally, the GUI is fully XML-driven and can be themed. Just about anything can be changed to one’s liking.
If you’re a G2x owner and are ready for a totally different recovery experience, you can get started in the T-Mobile G2x thread. If you have the LG Optimus 2x, you can find the goods for your device in the Optimus 2x thread.
Also, I have thrown together a one-click NVFlasher for the T-Mobile G2x variant to make flashing a breeze. You can find the download link in my post.

Here on XDA TV we have a series we like to call Must Have Apps. These are apps that we think are so great and useful that you must have them. We’ve given this title to such programs as Pushbullet, Light Flow, Helium, the AROMA File Manager, ROM Toolbox and Pocket Casts. But today we have an app that surpasses them all. Former XDA TV Producer Adam Outler offers up a must have application. In this video, XDA TV Producer...
OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn't a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA. A tweet and vine from OnePlus shed some more light on this product, which was confirmed to be named as DR-1 (dr-one, get it?) and was to reach stores "next month". In a...
