[APP][SENSE 3.6/4/4A/4.5][2012/9/17 1.42]HTC Lockscreen Shortcut Provider
This is my second Android app. I develop this little app because I prefer 3rd party launcher (e.g. Apex) than existing Sense 4 Rosie. Existing hacked Sense 4 Rosie (full version) currently doesn't support non Sense widget correctly and is less feature-rich than many other launchers.

Even if you install a 3rd party launcher, Rosie still consume your precious memory as a system service. But if you freeze Rosie and thus release it from memory, you'll lose your lockscreen app shortcuts. After painstakingly reviewing the codes in HTC shortcut components, I found that Rosie actually act as a content provider to supply information of its launcher bar shortcuts to lockscreen. So without Rosie, lockscreen has no information to construct its shortcuts. Therefore I wrote this little app to replace the role of Rosie as the content provider. What's more, it allows you to select your own apps with a simple config screen and store the data separately. And it doesn't stay in the memory permanently.

Installation instructions:
  1. Uninstall Rosie (Freezing doesn't work because Android doesn't allow two content providers of same type) ** You're reminded to make a backup first **
  2. Install HTC Lockscreen Shortcut Provider
  3. Run Lockscreen Shortcuts
  4. Select your app for the 4 shortcuts
  5. Hit back to save settings and notify HTC lockscreen

** Currently this app has been tested to work with Sense 3.6, 4, 4A and 4.5 **
