Android L is shaping up to be one of the most important releases of Google’s ever so popular mobile OS. Many components have been rewritten, and the OS has gone 64-bit. Some system applications designed specifically for the latest developer preview version of Android L also work on previous versions, but the majority of them need to be ported. You can get some from the system dump that we talked about a few weeks ago.

The recently announced Material Design UI paradigm changes the look and feel of the OS greatly, and many design elements have to be rewritten from scratch. One of elements that was totally reworked is the lock screen. The one available in Android L is totally different from the lock screens that were used in Jelly Bean or KitKat. If you haven’t had a chance to try it out yet, you can now do so, since XDA Senior Member xsmile711 has prepared the lock screen application to every version of Android greater than Ice Cream Sandwich.

The application is feature packed and allows you to change many settings and therefore make your system almost Android L-like. This app is in beta stage, so some bugs may occur. One of the most significant is a high amount of RAM consumption, but xsmile711 is already working to fix this issue.

Don’t wait for Android L to be finally released and then ported to your device; try its lock screen now! You can get the application from the Android L ported Lock Screen thread.
