Simple Tweak Brings Ice Cream Sandwich To Your CM7 Lockscreen

A developer over at XDA has created a simple file to change the lock screen look on your CyanogenMod 7 ROM to resemble that of the Ice Cream Sandwich look. Minimal white outlines make any lockscreen look one hundred times more classy.

All you have to do is flash the zip in ROM Manager and you’re good to go. If Metamorph is more your thing, the file is also attached on the thread. There are also different colors for all you color hackers so look at the original thread for those.

    It will put you in a continuous bootloop and you will NOT have access to Clockwork Recovery Mod. CWRM will not start up on boot by holding all of the buttons. Phone is ruined now. My own fault for flashing a random zip on a phone that it hasn’t been tested on. Been trying to get it to boot up constantly and now I have a $300 piece of junk.

    Nice!  A lot more elegant that the original rings I had on one of the CM7 nightlies.

    Does anyone know if there is a theme of this available for widget locker? CM7 never runs well on my DX so I am on stock.

    Does cyanogen support the bionic?

      No… It has a locked bootloader. For now you are stuck with stock kernel.

      This is built into the app Widget Locker. The CM7 lock screen options are nice… but they’re not anywhere near as featured as Widget Locker.

    Can someone give me step by step instructions on how to apply this?  I have cm7 and Rom Manager.

      Reboot into recovery and flash the zip.

      • Act of God

        I rebooted into recovery and installed the zip…everything is exactly the same as before.  Do I have to activate the lock screen through a menu?

        • Hemidart68

          Yep.follow the xda instructions

        • http://www.facebook.com/Pengwnmastr Mitchell Johnson

          Make sure you have 7.1, then make sure that you have the ring lock screen activated.
          Reboot to recovery and flash the zip.

          • Act of God

            Ah that was it, I still have 7.0…updated and it works.  Thanks!

    • http://www.facebook.com/Pengwnmastr Mitchell Johnson

      Yup, you need to be running CM7.1 with your lockscreen style set to “Ring”.

  • Madcow06

        Ewww, i hate the rings, way to obnoxious for me, hopefully they can piece together something better than just themed rings.

    Sweet! Dling now for CM7 Bolt
