    Unhappy WidgetLocker Help?

    I am trying to use widgetlocker and and having a hard time of it. I cant get any of the mods to show up.I tried using both apk manager and ADB but the problem is im so new to everything im not sure im even getting ADB to work right.

    Is there anyway someone could help walk me through like I am a child?

    I know its annoying but at least im trying to learn right?

    Thanks in advance!

    you are trying the mods to change the sliders and whatnot correct?

    here is what i just did.

    use Root explorer to copy the widgetlocker.apk from data/app folder.
    paste it onto your SD card somewhere.
    use Astro file manager, tap on the WL.apk on the SD card (the one you copied out)
    browse file
    go to res/drawable-hdpi and scroll down to the images you want to change. sense-slider and iphone-slider and iphone-lock screen (which ever one you are wanting to change) should then be deleted.
    then, navigate to the images you are going to use to replace the original ones. either longpress the image, edit, copy, or if you are changing multiple images, select the multi icon at the top, tap the ones you are wanting to use, and hit the copy button at the top.
    no navigate to the WL.apk you copied over
    browse file
    go to res/drawable-hdpi and past your images in here. should have a pop-up showing the progress of the paste action.

    once this is done, you have a modified version of WL.
    now to get it to work is just a few steps.

    use Root explorer to go into data/app and delete the widgetlocker.apk
    then use root explorer to go to the modded WL.apk, copy it.
    navigate to SYSTEM/app folder, hit the 'mount r/w" button in the upper right corner, (it will change to "mount r/o")
    paste the widgetlocker.apk into that folder. make sure you are in SYSTEM/app and NOT data app...i learned this the hard way. it will not work if you are pasting into data/app.
    longpress the new widgetlocker.apk,select "permissions" and chang them to look like this

    once you do that, you can reboot your phone, and your new modded WL should be working like a charm. i JUST did this a couple days ago and had no problems.

    I cant keep buying apps to do this stuff. Ive already spent more than I should on things.

    I didnt root my phone so I could buy apps to do the stuff im doing. I Rooted so I could learn how to do it with out apps.

    I Do appreciate the help but Im looking for help doing it with apk or adb. Thanks a ton for trying though!

    The easiest way is to use ninjamorph (free) and root explorer(paid). Root explorer is a must have app for rooted users IMO.

    I cant imagine that root explorer does anything that I cant do with adb or apk.

    I dont want the "easy" way to do things I want to learn the hard way so I can have more control over everything. I cant believe that there arnt any hardcore ppl on here willing to teach me.

    Ninjamorph isn't for newbs if you want a hard way to do it. You will extract the widget locker apk edit the pngs, recompile, move it from data/apps to system/apps and reboot.

    This couldn't be more right.. Dabble around in Ninjamorph for a while and see how "easy" it is.. I have wanted to slam a 500 dollar phone down a few times messing with it..

    However, once you get the hang of it the app is very beneficial...

    Don't want to pay for anymore apps? How else do you expect to get apps? You're lucky you don't have an iPhone you'd be paying through the nose.

    I dont really plan on getting more apps. Thats why i want to do things a different way. If i can learn to do this manually i wont need the apps.
