    Hey guys, so im on the latest build which is awesome. so i decided to give making a new cool lockscreen a go, this is what I was able to come up with

    [​IMG]

    Only problem is I can't figure out how to change the wallpaper without changing my homescreen wallpaper. Anybody know of any fixes? Im comfortable with .xml editing (obviously) so any tips/pointers would be awesome.

    You do not change the lock screen wallpaper in the lock screen style. It is changed by a full theme our changing it separately. The lock screen styles only change the style of the lock screen.

    Yes I see, but when I try to change it seperately it doesn't work. It always takes on the same wall as my homescreen

    This should be fixed in 1.6.24, although the theme style for the lockscreen background has changed. You can find updated lockscreen style themes Here

    TBH, I haven't looked at what has changed. I would suggest looking at one of the themes for 1.6.24 and compare it to one of the older 1.6.17 themes. I don't know if it is in the manifest.xml or if the image just has a different name in the res directory.

    I don't think it is going to require you to recode a bunch of stuff, just probably changing name or location of background image you want to use.

    the only thing different I see is it says </wallpaper> at the beginning... but I took one of the new themes as a base and did all the modifications I had done and now I can get a new wallpaper but I can't unlock my phone.

    I slide it and it just bounces right back to the starting point, won't unlock.

    I honestly have no idea. I just took one of the new themes and used it as a base. Then I pretty much re-wrote the .xml but I didn't change the format at all, just the values and descriptions. And it worked. That's what I would suggest doing.
