Thanks Stericson! Love it! one quick question,

Do you know if this is regarding your lock screen or specific themes. When receiving calls it current stays on the lock screen so i am unable to see who is calling unless i press menu first. This is ok normally however is rather annoying when catching a call late and having to enter a call blind so to speak.

Thanks again and some more top work!

good work. I do have a concern though. There's a lot of files involved, and this kind of renders the lockscreen usable only for the framework version it was designed for, since further changes (or backwards compatibility) could pose a problem. Do you think it would be possible to have the android.policy instead call on a separate program and launch a custom lockscreen, making it, thus, slightly more modular. Cyanogen's builds are a moving target and, though his framework hasn't changed much lately, i do feel it's going to be useless once he gets more work into donut and abandons cupcake for good.

excuse for my english and thank you again!

I need screenshots of your battery position...In the newest updates the battery should always be centered, make sure you have the newest updates...

The last icon, undetermined yet what it will be, is inactive.

As for the problem with the lockscreen not unlocking when a call comes in, this is not a lockscreen problem, rather it is a problem with my status bar mod. I believe I may have found a bug in Googles code....Still looking into it...

Also, this will still be good for donut. Cyan is going to implement this into his source and it will be available on all builds there on. As for making a custom app for the lockscreen, calling a method in android.policy.jar... It would still require changes being made to these files which would have to be done on every rom, and it would still be rom specific...so it wouldnt solve anything...I have provided my source so this can be put into other builds....

Do to your tough schedule do you expect another month or so for the music control and the undecided icon to be updated

Have you tried the colorChange.jar thread? I use that everytime an update comes out with the files from the lockscreen and have not had an issue

Question
Curiosity. What would happen if theme was changed to 1 that doesn't contain this lockscreen?

if you did this without flashing the ROM in between, then you're in for quite a number of FCs from multiple programs
