[Theme-ish] Transparent Lockscreen
Hey guys, had a request for this and thought I'd throw it out there for everybody.
This works with the rotary, sliding tab, and rotary revamped(both slides and pull down) locks. Just skins 'em so you can't see 'em.
This was made possible in no small part by YankInDaSouth. Basically, this means I couldn't put this up here if it weren't for him. So if you like it enough, it might be nice to buy him a beer. Just go to Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum - View Profile: YankInDaSouth in his about me section to donate.
Also a big thanks to B-boy! Without him, it would pretty much be an unflashable file, so show him some love and check out his other works: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/b-boy/
Obligatory disclaimer: I cannot be held responsible for any damage you do to your phone while flashing this theme.
1. This is prolly the best tip, and comes from B-boy. Get the app "zipthemer". This will allow you to modify the zip so that it can be flashed via recovery instead of using MM. It will also create an undo.zip which will allow you to retheme your phone with the setup you had before flashing the transparent lock.
On how to use zipthemer:
2. I recommend a nandroid backup, wiping cache, and flash away. I can confirm that this works on SS 5.4, and imagine it would work at least with Cyanogen and maybe others. Still, a backup is always a nice thing to have. This is done after you have run zipthemer. Just make sure you know where your zips went.

Zipthemer can be found either on the market on your phone or here. https://market.android.com/details?i...=search_result
Remember, this file as is works with metamorph, but can easily be modified via zipthemer to work via recovery, with the added bonus of an undo zip should you want to roll back for whatever reason.
Still not sure if I'm fully happy with this write up, so it may be changing again. Thanks for the patience as I get help and try to learn the theming game and iron out the kinks.
As you can see, I've had it awhile, just finally saw somebody else requesting it.
