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.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
