This is the closest I've been able to get to the sense 4.0 lockring. Running 3.6 with skin though

    Hi everyone!!

    Here's a tutorial on how you can edit the lock ring on all Sense Lockscreens!!


    First and Foremost, DO A NANDROID BACKUP!!!!! I am not responsible for any mistakes that you make or if anything happens to your phone.

    Now we can start the tutorial!! :D

    1. Download the Virtuous Ten Studio from here and install it.
      NOTE: To edit the images and compile it without getting a watermark on the image, you will need to buy a license.

    2. Using Root Explorer (Or any other file explorer) go to system/app and copy the fusion.apk to your sdcard.
    3. Copy these apks to your computer and open VTS

      You could also directly PULL the apk from your phone:
      adb pull /system/app/fusion.apk will pull the file to whatever directory you open the command prompt from
      (Thanks to NRGZ28 for giving this suggestion)

    4. Once the program has opened up, click on file then new project
    5. Select the M10-Project option and type in the Project Name and Solution Name. (This can be any name you like)
    6. On the left side menu select M10-Engine and select Sense version. (This will be the same Sense version you are running or you are making a lock ring for.)
    7. Then select import from the left side menu and browse to your fusion.apk file. Then click ok.
    8. On the left side you will see the Solution Explorer. Navigate through the folders. The lock ring image will be in assets\<name of skin>\drawable\shared\Images. The name of the lock ring will be lockscreen_ring.png. Right click this file and click open in explorer.
    9. The folder containing the png will open up. Replace that image with your image making sure that the file you are copying has EXACTLY the SAME name and same size.
      (The second post includes tips and tricks on adding effects to the lock ring)
    10. Then once you have replaced the lock ring with whatever pictures you want, go back to the program and right click on your project name. Then click on Build Project.
    11. The application will automatically zipalign and sign it for you so you do not have to do anything.
    12. Once the apk is built, right click the same project name and click on Open in Explorer. Then navigate to the Binary folder and copy that fusion.apk.
    13. Now you can either push the apk to your phone or copy and paste it using Root Explorer (or any other file explorer) or you can make a flashable zip out of it.
      To make a flashable zip, download the blank update.zip that i have attached in this post. Then open it with winrar or winzip etc.. and then copy the apk file into the system/app folder in the update.zip
      DO NOT EXTRACT the update.zip
      Then you can flash this zip file normally from recovery.
    14. Also make sure that if you are copying the file to the system/app, set the permissions as RW-R--R

    Now reboot and enjoy your new lock ring!! :D :cool:


    I will be taking requests, so if you want any particular lock ring just attach the pictures and i will make it for you as soon as possible :)

    I will be porting all the lock rings on a request basis as it will be very time consuming to do all. Those that have been updated will be in Bold. :)

    Thanks to Lee for his awesome Leedroid ROM!!
    Thanks to DiamondBack, Flemmard, Vaelek and Cypis for the Virtuous Ten Studio!!
    Thanks to SeriouslyCrazy, Dougi and Steve0007 for their Sense 3.5/3.6 workaround!
    A big thanks to all the other devs on XDA!!


    If I've missed out anyone who has contributed to this, please tell me and i will add their names. :)

    Photoshop Tips and Tricks

    Engrave on the Lock Ring

    1. Open the lock ring in Photoshop.
    2. Click on the TYPE TOOL in the sidebar on the left and type the text you want to engrave.
    3. On the right sidebar, right click on the layer with your text and click on blending options.
    4. Select inner shadow and input the following settings:-
      • Blend Mode = Multiply
      • Color = Black
      • Angle = 30
      • Use Global Light box ticked
      • Opacity = 75%
      • Distance = 5px
      • Choke = 7%
      • Size = 5px
    5. Then select bevel and emboss and input the following settings:-
      • Style = Outer Bevel
      • Technique = Chisel Hard
      • Depth = 1000%
      • Direction = Up
      • Size = 0px
      • Soften = 16px
      • Angle = 30
      • Altitude = 30
      • Use Global Light box ticked
      • Highlight mode = Screen
      • Color of Highlight Mode = White
      • Opacity = 75%
      • Shadow mode = Multiply
      • Color of Shadow mode = black
      • Opacity = 75%
    6. Click OK and save the file as a PNG file.
    7. There will be a popup asking whether you want the PNG to be interlaced or not. Choose none.

    Change the color of the Lock Ring

    1. Open the lock ring in Photoshop.
    2. From the top menu, go to Image ---> Adjustments ---> Variations.
    3. A window will open up.
    4. In the window that just opened, move the pointer towards Coarse.
    5. You can now select the color that you want.
    6. You can also adjust the pointer between fine and coarse depending on the color you wish to achieve.
    7. There are also options of Light and Dark which will also help to get the desired color.
    8. After you've changed the color, click on save and save it as a PNG file.

    More tips coming soon ;)

    Hey everyone! I've updated the thread with support for Sense 3.5. I've also updated a couple of lock rings to 3.5 as well! :D

    Any chance of getting the Anonymous ring for 3.5?

    Sent from my HTC Amaze 4G using Tapatalk.

    Sure. Done and in the 3rd post :)

    can i request these two pictures.. please and thank you

    Sure. The first one has been done and added in the 3rd post :)

    For the second one, do u have any other similar image? Without the background, the image looks very bad.. And with the background, it will look kinda weird as a lock ring..

    Can you believe this guy? He helped me customize not one but TWO different lockrings for a skin I fell in love with the other night. And when I asked him his donation info he said a thank you is all that's necessary. This guy is seriously incredible and I'd gladly throw some $ his way if he wanted it. Incredibly noble... Just have to give him major props... Definitely an awesome contributer to the community =)
