    I'm not really looking to root my phone and add a custom ROM ATM (though it does sound like fun). However, I'm beyond annoyed with the built in volume controls on Android Lollipop. I'm new to the droid world from the i world, and the volume controls are driving me nuts. My biggest beef is that I have to unlock my screen before I can modify the volume/silence my phone. Yea it seems like an eye roller; but, in the split second world of "Oh F$*# I need to turn my phone down or off!" It is driving me nuts that I don't have that ability without unlocking my phone first. My other volume beefs are minor picadillos compared to this big beef. Any suggestions, hints, hacks, ideas, or are my options to live or root?
