Remove Sense Lockscreen on the Thunderbolt


This is just a representation of an AOSP lockscreen. Not the actual effect.

Among the overlays seen on Android phones HTC’s Sense is probably the most popular. That being said, the “pure” Android experience is usually preferred over all else. Although this modification doesn’t represent a full AOSP experience it does help add a small glimpse. XDA member Masterā„¢ has created a script to nix the stock Sense lockscreen on the Thunderbolt which we cause it to default to the regular AOSP lockscreen.

The lockscreen is flashable via ClockWorkMod Recovery and requires that your device be rooted. The only modification that takes place is the removal of the stock HTC sense lockscreen files. As with anything elseĀ  backing up your existing setup is recommended. Download links and instructions can be found in the XDA thread.

I'm an avid technology lover. My first Android device was a G1; I fell in love (except for the battery), next I got a Samsung Captivate; error in judgment on my behalf, now I've moved on to the MyTouch 4G; which I absolutely love. What started with me just needing some kind of phone to use, i.e. free G1, ended with a new addiction.... I also enjoy long walks on the beach and luxurious bubble baths.... Oh wait.

    i just wish by now Google would require a option if you want a UI overlay or stock, this is bullshit
