Do any of you who are more smart than me (all of you,) know of a .cab with the standard winmo 6.5 lock screen? The ROM I am running overwrites it with a more bland looking screen. Thanks for any and all help.

The HTC, I believe. It has a white and black color scheme with rows of square number and a large rectangular unlock button. It's not the classic style with the rounded buttons, owner info, and softkey unlock.

I would like the rounded buttons with the contacts and mail shortcuts in the row of the unlock button.

Ok sweet. I have a fix for that. Install and soft reset.

Shoot... Installed and both "Classic" and "Default" look like "Classic" now. I wonder if I borked things up when I installed and then uninstalled Dusk_6.5_Lockscreen_v3.0.CAB in an attempt to get something closer to the look of the "Default".

Fix!
It appears that NRG uses a registry key to redirect the lockscreen to C:\Windows\Lockscreen as opposed to the default (or I think default) C:\Windows

Restore Lock Screen - HKLM\Security\Shell\Lock\CustomLockScreensPath set to \Windows

Restarted my device and I had the old lockscreen keypad back as opposed to the HTC Leo keypad.

OMG! Spent hours trying to get my lock screen back to normal and I was ready to do a hard reset. Followed all the above worked and love having the slider lock back.
I too tried using one of the Dusk themes and it messed up some of my settings (and never worked for me). Cannot get it all uninstalled either - irritating!
Many thanks!

For those of us NOT using Sense 2.x, the old style screen makes some sense, because it shows the home screen - which has plugins showing information even while locked.

Having said that, I am still using the newer "slider" unlock with my SPB Pocket Plus.
