    Have you heard about widget locker? It works great for me. You can put anything you want on your lock screen.

    Widget locker is great. 2 bucks. I am sure other viable options exist.

    There are other ways using ninja morph by extracting framework res apk and editing it with a hex editor. If you google it you should find something. I made a half a$$ YouTube video floating around out there somewhere

    are you trying to change your sliders? your pic? banner text? youre lockscreen pic should be your wallpaper. the only way to change that is to change your wallpaper. if you want to change your banner text, i found a post i had from previous thread:


    Okay...if you want to change you banner you will need to download ninja morph to your phone and you will need a hex editor on your pc or laptop(I use HxD)

    Now open ninja morph app and press start checks-selct new project-select system-select framework-select framework-res.apk. it will extract this file. After file extracts press you back button once and remain here. You will be back to this shortly

    Plug your phone into computer or laptop and veiw sd card contents. Select android themes-select workspace-select frameworkresapk-select res- select xml- highlight and drag eri file to your desktop. Do not close this. You will be dragging your eri file back.

    Open eri file on desktop(will open with hex editor) scroll down while observing the right hand column of the file. Look for the words "VERIZON WIRELESS" or if your dropdown is already changed look for those words( for example ... rubiX focused ...) there is a sixteen letter space you can use to change the text. Do not use more than the sixteen letters provided(it should look like this ...Verizon Wireless...) only change the text. Do not remove the periods! Only the text. Spaces count as characters. If you choose to use less than 16 characters, fill the remaining areas with spaces. Now click save in the upper left hand corner. Drag eri file back. It will prompt you saying file already exists. Replace the eri file with the new one. Disconnect phone from pc and let sd card mount.

    Now back to ninja morph app... open app(should still be open) and click finish project. Choose the framework-resapk file. File will upload to your phone. After file uploads it will prompt you to to accept changes that were made( I believe there are three or 4 prompts. Once you accept the changes it will ask you if you would like to delete/cleanup this project. Just sit here for a second and your phone will auto reboot. When reboot is finished you should see your newly updated text in your lockscreen and dropdown. You are finished. Congrats



    Edit: if you do not do this correctly, everything will keep fc'ing on you. Make sure you make a nandroid before doing this. If you do keep getting fc's and a nandroid does not fix this try wiping data and cache. If that doesn't work try your handy dandy system only sbf. I've had to sbf my phone about 20 times since sept-oct so I've become quite the pro. Lol. Try this at your own risk! I do not accept responsibility for anything that happens to your phone during this process. I have done this around 30 times every time with success but once(my first)leading me to sbf. Just be aware of what could possibly be

    Yes it does. You can actually put up to four sliders if you want. Each slider can open different things. I have two : one to unlock and the other to open the camera.
