This is a simple script for ClockWorkRecovery that removes the HTC Sense LockScreen files so you can use the stock android lockscreen.

Requirements
  • Must Be Rooted

If you are unfamiliar of what the stock android lockscreen looks like, just look below :)

Would this work with the Virus rom? And does it mess anything up when you apply this?(wondering after seeing the posts above)

Thanks

It doesnt mess anything up, it works perfectly fine. You will have aosp lockscreen. However, you will lose your lockscreen music controls and just about anything else you were able to do from the lockscreen. Its all tied into the htclockscreen.apk(sense).

Then why are the issues occuring with the alarm? Is that only after it's set? I'm really wanting to drop this mod in, but I don't want to have these alarm issues that others are experiencing.

What alarm issues are you talking about? My alarm works just fine. I would recommend using root explorer, going into system/app folder and renaming htclockscreen.apk to htclockscreen.apk.bak and checking it out for yourself. You can always change it back if you have issues

My bad...on the incredible the only way to shut off the alarm was with the lockscreen...looks like this is fixed on the t-bolt

The posts made on the first page made it sound like the alarm was going off randomly/couldn't be turned off.

    How do you kickstand it while charging? I thought about doing that but the stupid charging port is in the way.

    Stand it up vertically. ;)
