    [MOD] how to modify widgetlocker sliders

    This is a guide on how to mod the widgetlockers slider using ninjamorph and root explorer.

    first off you will need to download ninjamorph, root explorer and widgetlocker from the market..or wherever you choose to get them.

    1. download this "mods" zip file here,https://www.dropbox.com/s/jnx8sl6u91...ocker/Mods.zip this contains a variety of png files to choose from. check them out and pick the mod you want to use. take the 2 png's you chose and place them in the "android themes" folder on your SD card.

    [theres alot more mods in the zip than you see in the pics in this post]

    2. install widgetlocker and do not open it. if you allready have widgetlocker then uninstall and reinstall it and dont open it.

    3.open ninjamorph stat checks then click "new project",
    go to data\app\com.teslacoilsw.widgetlocker-1.apk.
    it will extract all the files

    3.then go to res\drawable-hdpi and scroll down to "slider_iphone" and replace it with the one you put on the root of your sd card.
    then go back to res\drawable-hdpi and replace the "slider_iphone_background" with the one you placed on the root of your sd card

    4.press the back button on your phone and select finish project. choose the widgetlocker one then click \yes\yes\yes ect till it says "all done"

    5. then go directly into root explorer. navigate to data\app\com.teslacoilsw.widgetlocker-1.apk, longpress it and select "move"
    go back to the first screen in root explorer and navigate to system\app and paste it there.[you may have to click the box in the top right in this screen to mount read only data]

    6.reboot your phone. widgetlocker should come up upon boot. skip through the tutorial and go into settings\look and feel\ slider layout and select "iphone"

    and there it is! your new awesome modded Widgetlocker.

    from now on [as long as your widgetlocker apk is in system/app] you can skip step 5 and just reboot right after step 4.

    you can probly find another way to get the WL.apk into system\app but thats just how i did it.
    if someone knows of a better way without buying root explorer post it up in here.

    You can use adb to push it to the system I believe. I don't mess with that though. I prefer the ease of root explorer myself.

    Yes, root explorer is definitely the way to go.

    if you google widgetlocker mods you'll find an xda thread with a bunch of screenshots of people's modified lock screens, and some alternative ways to do it..

    FYI its a good idea to put the png's in the android themes folder. Ninjamorph can be picky with where the png's come from.
