Posted by techhackz-admin Saturday, August 28, 2010


Droid X Android 2.2 Lock Screen for Android 2.1 chaluxedeluxe @ AndroidCentral liked the Android 2.2 (Froyo) lock screen so much that he decided to release it for Android 2.1 (Eclair). Apparently the Froyo build for the Motorola Droid X isn’t quite ready for prime time yet so for those of you still running Android 2.1 on your Droid X you can still enjoy the new Froyo lock screen. Check out the instructions after the break.

To install this new lock screen you will need to be rooted, see our instructions @ How To Root Your Motorola Droid X or How To Root your Motorola Droid X the Easy Way.
