WIP: Lockscreen Honeycomb Style
XDA member bizdady presents this lock screen for your Android device that will give you the Honeycomb style. Initially, this lock screen is a mod for Cm7 Rc1 frameworks but more versions are being added constantly and you´ll find a Rotary Style system that can be adjusted to your liking. The developer recommends to use the regular sliders instead some of the extra icons because you might end up with a blank image. Evo, MyTouch and G2 versions can be found by now.
If you liked this work, please leave some comments.

WIP: Lockscreen Mod for CM7 RC1 (Honeycomb Wannabe Lockscreen)
So I decided to mod lockscreen to look a bit like the Honeycomb lock along with Honeycomb font on the Lockscreen Clock.
I originally made this for Evo users but Ive gotten number of request for other phones so thought I post it here. Since this mods your framework-res.apk it has to be phone specific (as far as I know this is my first real mod for anything other than my Evo) This mod is Cm7 Rc1 frameworks (to be consistent) but as things slow down I can take nightly requests (we love our nightlies!!). IF there is a nightly only a few days old please note that it will not be a top priority but I will update when I have time. Updating a nightly for every phone can get gruesome.
Some Icons (sound, Vibrate & Cyanogen robot custom icon) had to be blanked out so if you try using the regular sliders and using some of the extra icons you might have a blank image but the slider still works.
The Main lockscreen is the Rotary Style lockscreen. You can change it under settings > Cyanogenmod settings > Lockscreen Settings > Lockscreen Style
Continue to the lock screen thread.

It’s not rare to see computer programmers with Linux partitions or Mac gamers that use bootcamp for their videogames.
