Download: DROID X Android 2.2 Lock Screen

If you were unable to grab Android 2.2 for the Droid X before Motorola starting harassing websites, then you have missed out on the new lock screen that comes with it (pictured above).  While this isn’t a big change, it does come off as slightly more appealing than the original grey version and can be pushed to your 2.1 DX now if you’d like.

*Note 1* – This is for ROOTED 2.1 Droid X owners only.

*Note 2* – This will mess with your framework-res file which can be dangerous and possibly leave you at a standing M logo on reboot.  You may need to flash an SBF file to recover should something happen.

*Note 3* – Since you have to be rooted, downloading Koush’s Bootstrap and flashing Clockwork Recovery with a backup before doing this is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Download:  framework-res.apk

Instructions:

**Phone must be rooted and only for Droid X on 2.1

0. Put this .apk file on the root of your sd card.

6. Mount the system as read-only. Command: “mount -o remount,ro -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system” (without quotes)

8. Enjoy!
