Hello!

As part of my Windows Phone 7 theme for the HD2, I have released the lockscreen of the upcoming version as a stand-alone app.
This application will run on any WVGA device.



This app smoothly slides down over the currently displayed screen, and then you can "peek" at what's under it. To unlock, start at the bottom of the screen and slide up. This can be pinned to your homescreen, or set as a button.

It's a first-release, but I want to make sure all the kinks are out of it before including it in my Windows Phone 7 theme (release TBD).

Instructions
Download, copy, and install to your device.
Run it!

Changing the wallpaper
You can change the background of the lockscreen by placing a file on the root of your device and naming it lockscreen_image.jpg ("\\lockscreen_image.jpg"). The file must be in WVGA resolution and JPG format.

Any questions, comments, or trouble, let me know

Enjoy!

Update Jan 2012: This project hasn't been touched in years, but if you still want it, this download link should work:

when you press the end button it goes black...when you wake it up it just wakes up without a lock screen.

and yes i did restart the phone and try uninstall and reinstall

also after un-stalling the cab your original lock screen doesn't come back up

The application does not replace the Windows Mobile lock screen. It is simply meant to be used as an application to mimic the Windows Phone 7 lock screen. You should, however, be able to run the application, and then press the end key. Once waking up the device, the app should be ready to unlock.

This application does not change any Windows Mobile settings, are you sure you didn't modify anything yourself?
