As many of you probably know, Co0kie’s Home Tab mod offers the ability to use various lockscreens. The HD Mini lockscreen unlocks by sliding a large beam down. XDA member G-ThGraf found that the unlock button is simply too big, which means that there is less space to place information on the lockscreen. G-ThGraf made this little mod, which allows for a lot more information to be viewed; he resized the button to 50% of its original size. The mod only works for devices with Co0kie’s Home Tab mod installed; the original manila-independent HDMini lockscreen is not supported.

Hi guys, i love HD mini lockscreen but the bar for unlock is too big for me, so i made a new one little bit smaller!
There are currently three lockscreens for CHT: Windows, HDMini and Sense. Although originally these are coming from different programs, XDA developer Co0kieMonster developed these lockscreens in Manila code. This makes it easier to switch between these from one place (CHT Editor). The mod by G-ThGraf is just one example of possibilities. The mod works for any device with Co0kie’s Home Tab 1.8, which is the newest available version. There are also different flavours of this mod: A button with text, with an icon or a simple arrow.
It’s nice to see some mods coming, but I would like to see more. If the lockscreens can be customized this much, why not make an outstanding one where you have to unlock by drawing a circle or something like that? The manila code opens many doors for new designs. For example, MaxSense and GTX Sense are both based on Manila code. So, what would you like to see? Let us know by sharing your ideas here!
You can download the mod in the application thread.
