    Lock screen is disabled... i can't turn it back on.

    this is how it happened,

    I put it in standby mode
    connected my charger (it went into charge only mode)
    i think i pressed and held the power button to power it back up and unplugged it at the same time.
    now my lock screen is disabled and no lock screen toggle apps will correct it.
    I really don't like not having a lock screen. how do i get my Lock screen back

    Liberty 3 2.0
    DX

    thanks for your help

    Did you try to boot into clockwork and reflash liberty again with just a cache wipe? Just don't wipe data.

    You can always go to the next step and wipe data this time also. Just make sure your apps are backed up with titanium backup or whatever you use. If you made a Nandroid backup of liberty before things went bad you can restore that. I know it's sucks having to redo everything but i don't know of any other option.

    I had the same problem. I reinstalled from scratch. I couldn't find any other way to fix it. Luckily I had Titanium. I also use ADW so that restored my screens after my programs were reinstalled.
    Good luck!

    Yeah the bad thing is if I disable it again.... ill have to wipe and do it again. It happened in 1.0. I flashed 2.0 in the hopes to correct it. But to no success. It locks the screen after a call which is weird but not after a screen on. Oh well. Maybe ill get the nerve to wipe it again. Right now I'm just going to deal with it. Thank for the input :-)

    I've been looking up commands like reenablekeyguard() but i've only been sctaching the surface of programming. is there any way to issue these in the terminal or somthing? i'm sure has a very low chance to work as the apps like mylock probably use the same commands to enable and disable the lock screen.

    The wipe data and reflash rom fixed it the first time. now that i've done it again.... i really want to find a solution. it seems when i press the power button to turn the screen back on it unlocks automatically. i can use a screen lock widget to activate the unlock screen, but as soon as the screen turns off and i press the button.... same issue. it clears the unlock screen as if i used the slider.

    Wow your still dealing with that issue. Just sbf your phone it's quick and simple. That will fix your issue unless it's a hardware issue which is unlikely. Do the 4.5.602 root iso in this link http://www.DroidXForums.com/forum/dr...-problems.html there's a step by step video in that link also. After you sbf you'll root you phone again using zergrush or d3 one click root. Then you can make a nandroid backup of your stock rooted rom before installing liberty again. The nandroid backup can come in handy if you ever mess up again.
