Ok guys here's my first contribution to the community I guess.

First of all thanks to;
frostman89 - for the iphone pngs
zHk3r - for the new iphone pngs
teslacoil - for the widgetlocker for sure!
others - those that contributed that i forgot.

I take no credit at all, i created this thread because many people have PM'ed me for the pngs and tutorial.

Ok lets start shall we? You will need;
- Widgetlocker(Buy it first cuz its not free)
- Root Explorer(Buy it too and this is optional if you dont know adb)
- the PNG files;

Thanks guys!

Because you want this;



Got 2 steps on how to do this;
1) ADB
2) Root Explorer
3) My own steps(this is what i did to get it working!!)
4) Ninjamorph(S-OFF required)
5) Paypal buyer~~
6) Easier method - simple script
7) What if FC after applied the mod? Link to original post - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4&postcount=51

BEFORE THAT, NANDROID first!!!!!!!!!!!!!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
1) ADB(google would help a lot)

*Btw make sure you have your widgetlocker completely removed/uninstalled before doing this.

a. You will need Android SDK installed (google for it will ya?).
b. "adb pull" your widgetlocker(anyone who did this can tell me please?)
c. Open your "pulled" apk using winrar.
d. Browse to /res/drawable-hdpi
e. Drop those 2 images you downloaded in there(make sure it is the exact name as the original so it will overwrite it.
f. Now for adb push part(make sure you in the recovery mode and make sure the widgetlocker.apk is put inside android-sdk-windows/tools folder - the default folder for adb);
Code:
adb remount
adb push com.teslacoilsw.widgetlocker-1.apk /system/app/com.teslacoilsw.widgetlocker-1.apk
adb reboot
g. Tada! Enjoy!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

2) Root Explorer

*Btw make sure you have your widgetlocker completely removed/uninstalled before doing this.

a. Browse the app in data/app, it is called com.teslacoilsw.widgetlocker-1.apk
b. Copy it to your SD card.
c. Modify it(see step d and e above)
d. Put it back into system/app(you need to be in R/W mode)
e. After that, long click the app, select permissions, and do checkmarks like this: (the * represents a checkmark) - this is courtesy of frostman89

* . * . -

* . - . -

* . - . -

f. Reboot and voila!

================================================== ========

3. My own steps!

Actually my steps is mixed between those 2 because, I can't pull using adb so i had to pull using Root Explorer. Then I cant push it using Root Explorer so i had to adb push them.

So there you go, if you have problems like me, just did what i did.

a. Browse the app in data/app, it is called com.teslacoilsw.widgetlocker-1.apk
b. Copy it to your SD card.
c. Modify it(see step d and e above)
f. adb push(make sure you in the recovery mode and make sure the widgetlocker.apk is put inside android-sdk-windows/tools folder - the default folder for adb);
Code:
adb remount
adb push com.teslacoilsw.widgetlocker-1.apk /system/app/com.teslacoilsw.widgetlocker-1.apk
adb reboot
I'll tell you guys too why i cant use adb pull and push using root explorer;

adb pull - easy, i dont know how to adb at that time...haha~~
paste using root explorer - i pasted it but nothing appeared? i was like wtf and that leads me to learn how to adb.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4) Ninjamorph(S-OFF required)

I'm not sure how but here is what faceqt told me;

Quote:

Or, if you have S-OFF you can use Ninjamorph to replace the 2 .png's and reboot your phone.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5) Paypal buyer~~

Quoted from jayhan73;

Quote:

For people who have purchaed WidgetLocker off paypal, the steps to do this only involves replacing the png files (i.e. opening the apk file sent to your email and adding the png files into the required directory). After that, reinstall the widgetlocker. You may also choose to push the apk via adb. Either way, it works.

But i believe once you mod it you can't install it normally, so its either adb or root explorer.

6)Easier method - Smple script as posted by brady;

download APK manager from here
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=695701

put the apk file in the "place-apk-here-for-modding"

run the script.bat and extract it, (basically unzips it) drop the new PNG files in /res/drawable-hdpi (replace already existing) then run zip.apk from script and (select option 2 Regular apk) then use option 4 sign apk.

look in the pace-apk-here-for-modding folder will be a new file called 'something'-signed.apk. (this is the new edited Widgetlocker

This file you can put on your SD card and Install and Uninstall like a normal apk using ASTRO etc. no need for ADB and root explorer.

Takes literally 5 minutes to do with NO RISK to your phone

7) What if FC after applying the mod? - link to original post - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4&postcount=51

Is WidgetLocker Force Closing after you've applied the mod?

Quoted from zHK3r
Quote:

Then try these steps:

Requirements:
Android SDK
HTC Sync Drivers
WidgetLocker
Two PNGs
7zip/WinRAR

1) ADB pull /data/app/com.teslacoilsw.widgetlocker-1.apk
2) Rename the .apk to .zip and open the folder - Drop the two PNGs in drawable-hdpi
3) Rename the .zip back to .apk

On your phone: Uninstall WidgetLocker and then re-install.
Start WidgetLocker, but once you've started it. Press home.
Don't apply any settings or continue the tutorial

4) ADB push com.teslacoilsw.widgetlocker-1.apk /data/app/teslacoilsw.widgetlocker-1-apk

On your phone: Start WidgetLocker > Menu > Settings > Look and Feel > Slider & Layout > iPhone

Code:
 adb devices
 adb remount
 adb pull data/app/teslacoilsw.widgetlocker-1-apk
 adb push com.teslacoilsw.widgetlocker-1.apk /data/app/teslacoilsw.widgetlocker-1-apk

Btw if you have any problems pushing an apk, try this;

Quoted from Zaphyr;
Quote:

Ok, so I figured out the problem.
/system wasn't mounted. Even in recovery when I tried to push it over, I needed to go in the Clockwork settings and choose mount system before I could push it.
But now it works perfectly! YAY!!

*I'm pretty sure it'll work the same for other lockscreen you wanted as long as you have the needed files.

Feel free to comment and give feedbacks, and correct me if i got wrong in some part. Enjoy!

What about apkmanager to extract the apk from your phone and unbundle it for editing. Its alot easier in my opinion, and it easily re compresses the file and can push it back to the phone for you.
Sorry I don't have a link, but just do a search.
