Now that we have root, does someone know how to disable the lockscreen? Not the ads, just the lockscreen itself.

I remember looking for a method back when we first had root and not finding one...

Well, here are some thing you can try, guys:
1. if you are on 8.9 HDX, you can install Apollo Gapps 1.2 ROM, there is switch in the settings (classic android switch) - I am using this right now
2. try to install and run this app (No Lock):
No Lock - warning - probably not working correctly - reported here
References, credits, etc:

P.S. I did test the app on Apollo Gapps ROM 1.2 (8.9 HDX), and it was working as expected...

For me, with no lock enabled, the nav bar randomly disappears...

Well, if you want, you can try this one (no graphic glitches for me so far (testing for cca 3 hour randomly turning screen on and off) - still on Apollo Gapps 1.2):
No lock screen

Thanks ill give it a try. But it looks like it works the same way. And I guess when the notification is missing is when the glitches start...

Also looks like it breaks the magnetic switch, like no lock. So screen doesn't turn on when opening case.
