Hi,
Since two days I'm a happy and proud Note owner, but there's one thing, that makes me really go crazy:
I installed the program "Widgetlocker", because the standard lockscreen is quite broing. It actually works quite good, but sometimes the standard lockscreen still apears. Not instead of the widgetlocker, but additional. So I always have to unlock two lockscreens.

Does anybody else has got this problem? And how can I fix it?

I tried to find a solution in different forums and in the program configuration, without sucess!

Thanks for help!


Edit: The error apears mostly when there's a pop-up (gtalk e.g.) or when I plug in the charger....

I turned on root helper and home helper in settings, that fixed it for me. I'm on Stock Rooted XXKK9 if that helps.

I presume you have set the lock screen to "none" in the actual phone settings too?

Hi, chrcad,

Finally, the someone else who's been having the same problem.

It IS really irritating. Sometimes it's OK, but other times it just comes on.

Have turned off the lock screen option, but same thing happens. Someone please help!

chrcad,

Your problem seems related to the fact that Android is not having enough memory left ans simply closes "useless" apps and considers that WL is part of them. To prevent that to happen, simply check in advanced settings the "refuse to suspend WL" box and Android will look another application than WL to close

Thanks @ everybody for the help, but unhappily it's still not working properly.

The problem always apperas, when the phone's sleeping and a gTalk message comes in.... but ONLY, when the gTalk ppop-up is activated......


Any (more) idea?

I use to have the same problem, very rarely but it was still annoying. I have put a lock on widgetlocker so if I ever close all programs, widgetlocker is still running. It's not happened since but it's only been a few days so I'll see.
