    Im running UD 1.0 and I want take the UD banner off my lockscreen... Is there any way to do that without flashing a theme or do I have to flash a theme to get rid of it?

    2 things: 1. That's a pretty old rom so ya might wanna flash a more current version like UD 2.4 or 2.5.....
    2. You just want the top part that says Ultimate Droid off?.. Do ya want anything in it's place instead or just blank?

    Yea, I know... I restored it back from BB v6.2 because of the horrible battery life.... I tried UD 2.5, and it gave me a bad battery life too... I just want it blank, so that my clock on my lock screen isn't covered up

    1. MAKE A BACK UP!... lol
    2. If you run any kind of task killer, EXCLUDE MM from it.. that's an issue cause the atk kills mm in the middle of the flash... big problems...
    3. Download the link above and move it to the androidthemes folder on the root of your sd. (moving it is just easier to explain, you can leave it alone and inside mm just hit the blue arrow and navigate to the download folder and proceed)
    4. Open Metamorph, run checks (if it says something about memory in system is low, uninstall a few system apps like twitter, facebook, maps, etc and get them from the market so they become data/apps)
    5. After the checks hit the "unzip new" tab at the bottom right, find your zipped up file you downloaded and moved, press it, close out of the splash screen that will pop up, hit apply all, then continue, answer any pop ups and click yes to reboot.. it's supposed to reboot framework automatically but it doesn't always.. if not, just manually reboot your phone... enjoy your new lockscreen bg...

    You should really try BBv0.6.2.1, and do the clear battery stats process..... the process is to charge the batt full, clear battery stats, then let it drain completely til shutoff, then recharge to 100%...

    It worked, except it just looks like the UD words were blurred out and the banner is still there, cutting off like half of my clock

    Yeah I've never just used the normal background.... I can just darken it all if you want... then the blur will be gone and the clock should look good then...

    use root explorer and extract the framework from your current setup to your sd card.

    move it to your pc.


    use 7zip to extract the framework-res.apk/res/drawable-hdpi folder.


    Find the lockscreen .png file....use gimp to edit the file...delete layer, add new layer (transparent, or you can use a rgb color layer, make it black, go color/levels/change to alpha....adjust the alpha to be transparent to your liking....save the image...import back into drawable-hdpi folder...import that back into framework-res.apk/res....put the framework into a flashable zip, or you can even try to put it on your sd card, move to /system/framework...change permissions....reboot.


    Or leave it the way it is. lol

    theming aint always easy
