    Hi guys, I just downloaded widgetlocker and i love it.
    However, i have a password set on my phone. So when i unlock my phone with the slider on widgetlocker, the old slider pops up and i slide it and then come to my password

    Does anyone know if it is possible to either disable the old slider and just have the password pop up or if it is possible to set a password for widgetlocker!

    Thanks so much!

    PS. Not very important, but on widgetlocker i deleted the old clock that it had and replaced it with my fancywiget clock. Does anyone know how to get the old clock back?

    Thanks in advance!

    Open WidgetLocker, press/hold on the screen, choose widgets, choose Lock screen clock...

    I have been using widgetlocker since it was released and testing it for the dev, however I never password protect my phone so I'm not sure. You can contact the dev directly: Kevin@teslacoilsw.com

    No luck. I tried using NoLock to bypass the factory slider and go straight to the PIN screen but it wont. When I unlock with WidgetLocker, the factory slider comes up everytime whether NoLock is enabled or disabled.

    Isn't there an option within widgetlocker to actually disable the swipe requirement?

    I don't want to disable the widgetlocker swipe, I want to remove the stock swipe while still having the passlock show up

    I'm not quite sure what unlock sequence is being requested. Is it:
    (1) have WidgetLocker appear on power-on, with a swipe to get to the pattern unlock screen
    (2) do the pattern unlock, and if that's successful go to the home screen

    Or something else?

    There doesn't seem to be any workaround at this time. Droid X users are reporting the same problem. The fix will probably necessitate WidgetLocker adding a PIN/pattern lockscreen to replace the stock one.

    There's a long thread here, including posts from the developer of WidgetLocker about the problem:
