Before developoing this app, I am using
1. Nolock
2. Flyscreen
3. lock widget
in order to
1. use any key to turn the phone on
2. use widget to turn off the phone
3. Use flyscreen to prevent the accident tap

However this combination is huge and invenient. So I deciced to develop a very small app (40k in size) it can
1. Use any key to turn on the phone
2. A widget turn phone off
3. A very simple lock screen to prevent accident tap.



Search AnyUnlock in Android Market and enjoy it. If there are any porblems, please report.

perhaps you should include an option to enable or disable the 'lock screen to prevent the accidental tap.'

It didn't work for my N1. I enabled the app, brought me to the 2nd window where I also enabled it and let the phone shut down and nothing, I had to use the power button to turn the screen back on. Back to nolock.


It was the way I installed it, working now but after installing gingerbread the trackball wake no longer wakes the screen, have to use the volume key. Still very effective but like the trackball wake.

Yes, there is a bug. If you don't allow the admin permission in the first time. The program will fail. You can disable it, uninstall it and reinstall to take effect.

I also couldn't pick up on an incoming call... it just went to the screen which shows the enable/disable anylock buttons. I couldn't press home or back. Uninstalled it for now.

I have updated to 1.2 with the option to disable simple lock screen. Also I tried to fix your phone call issue. Hopefully it is working.

Thumbs up
Works fantastic. After enabling the app I went back into settings and unchecked the lock screen. Now it works just the way I wanted. Thanks for the great app.

You can have a try. The power button is quite vunerable for HTC devices. I hope Android would make an official option to power on the device using any keys.
