    You would need to build from source most likely...it would involve edits to a .java file. If its just replacing pngs or something you might be able to use smali, but dont know for sure.

    Personally, I just use Widget Locker. Works fine for me.

    I think widgetlocker looks like the way to go.

    lol - it's certainly the easier of the two options presented. ;)

    I tried WL on a Droid1 but found it to be too "laggy" on device wake.
