    Hey guys, had a request for this and thought I'd throw it out there for everybody.

    Transparent lockscreen!

    This works with the rotary, sliding tab, and rotary revamped(both slides and pull down) locks. Just skins 'em so you can't see 'em.

    This was made possible in no small part by YankInDaSouth. Basically, this means I couldn't put this up here if it weren't for him. So if you like it enough, it might be nice to buy him a beer. Just go to Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum - View Profile: YankInDaSouth in his about me section to donate.

    Also a big thanks to B-boy! Without him, it would pretty much be an unflashable file, so show him some love and check out his other works: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/b-boy/

    Obligatory disclaimer: I cannot be held responsible for any damage you do to your phone while flashing this theme.

    Useful tips:
    1. This is prolly the best tip, and comes from B-boy. Get the app "zipthemer". This will allow you to modify the zip so that it can be flashed via recovery instead of using MM. It will also create an undo.zip which will allow you to retheme your phone with the setup you had before flashing the transparent lock.
    On how to use zipthemer:
    2. I recommend a nandroid backup, wiping cache, and flash away. I can confirm that this works on SS 5.4, and imagine it would work at least with Cyanogen and maybe others. Still, a backup is always a nice thing to have. This is done after you have run zipthemer. Just make sure you know where your zips went.

    3. Reboot and enjoy! Watch your friends wonder how to get into your phone.

    Other notes:
    Zipthemer can be found either on the market on your phone or here. https://market.android.com/details?id=kellinwood.zipthemer&feature=search_result

    The download:
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10986636/translock.zip
    Remember, this file as is works with metamorph, but can easily be modified via zipthemer to work via recovery, with the added bonus of an undo zip should you want to roll back for whatever reason.

    Still not sure if I'm fully happy with this write up, so it may be changing again. Thanks for the patience as I get help and try to learn the theming game and iron out the kinks.

    As you can see, I've had it awhile, just finally saw somebody else requesting it.

    As far as I know, hence the backup. Waiting for confirmations on other themes, roms. Let us know how it goes!

    Wanna help me out on this? I flashed using CWR and it worked fine. Anything I need to do/change to make this work for others?

    Not really, but am willing to learn. How difficult would you say it is, and do you happen to know any good tutorials on it(or should I just google it)?

    I might be heading to bed soon, but leave me a message on here or pm me and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. I appreciate the help with this, B-boy.

    That already was a mm zip so I don't know how ya installed it via recovory but I added in the jog dial answer icon and changed the control file.. dl this, but add it to your dropbox or file sharing set up so I can remove it from mine.. let me know once you have it.. I tested it and it works fine.. I recommend using the app "zipthemer" tho.. it creates a recovery based install (like an update.zip) as well as an undo.zip so you can flash it to revert back to how the phone was preflash... http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10789872/translock.zip

    Got it and updated my OP. I will look into zipthemer, and maybe start looking into actual theming. You can take it down from your dropbox. Thanks again!

    No prob man... :D ... but I'd add in the OP that its intended for use with metamorph tho.... it doesn't have an update.script so it shouldn't even install from recovery....

    And if anyone trash talks this, I'll change up the xmls so that they can't locate the transparent tab to unlock their phone..... lol... I like the look of it tho. I made this same thing back in September when I first started theming for someone as a request.... def look into theming tho, we need some talented people to keep the ball rolling once some of us retire... :DD

    I will look into theming. It's tinkering, and I love to do that. Gonna spend some time reading up on how to do some of this, and I figure a lot of trial and error, and eventually I might get something put together. Now, I just hafta figure out what sort of theme to go for. And about the xmls, "why do I now have to drag from top right to bottom middle?!?" lol.

    Really good work. It be nice to have metamorphs for the stock and themed versions to revert back without having to flash a backup.

    I will work on that. Might take a few days as I am just learning and have heavy hours at work this weekend. But I will get to it asap.
