Use and Customize Vanilla Locks for Sense Roms on the HTC EVO 4G

If you have an HTC EVO and use Sense based roms, you are probably wondering what you could do to change the lock screen to something more vanilla. Well, XDA member JsChiSurf has just released an app that will allow the users of 3.70 based roms (must be deodexed) to use vanilla lockers from other Android roms. The two that have been added so far as the regular sliding tab from AOSP roms and the Rotary one, which the devhad ported for the Hero. The mod will replace a few files which normally include many customizations in a device. So, you may see a few of your mods either disappear or look funny.

The installation is done by flashing the file via Recovery. Please leave some feedback for the dev if you like this or find it useful.

Okay, the wait is finally over! As the title of the thread states, included below is a heavily modified framework for deodexed HTC Sense ROMs (3.70 base), that will give you the ability run any vanilla style lockscreen you desire, including options for standard tab/slider, multiple-sliders (4 tabs for unlock/mute/phone/messaging), or Rotary.

You can find more information in the mod thread.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
