Androidlock XT not so secure?

Wondering if this is just an isolated instance or not. With Androidlock XT installed with a custom pattern set I thought I would try to slide like normal from left to right on the bottom part of the screen, and to my surprise it worked. My custom pattern involves sliding through the upper two rows so I'm wondering what's going on. Anyone with similar issues?

*It might just need an update to work with ios4

Couldn't you just hold down the home button for voice command, try to make a call, during the call hit the home button and change or disable the pattern?

what did you use for the weather on the lock screen?

The pattern was saved and verified, and it has been updated to iOS4 although I'm currently on 4.0.1 at the moment. Also I forgot to mention that if I put in my saved pattern it will unlock as well... So essentially I have two ways to unlock the device.

I'm using lockinfo with lockweather plugin for the upper portion of the screen.

I can't replicate your issue....AL XT does have another issue at present where if you have bitesms installed and you click to view a text message, it automatically logs you in and bypasses the unlock!

I've reported this to the dev so we'll see what happens!

No sir, that's actually what I enjoy about the app... It reverts right back to that lock screen. I've even tried various voice commands as well as the iPod commands. Essentially it does have a fail-safe where you can call the phone hang up and then access the settings feature.

Any combo works!! :O

Same issue here. My specified passcode, along with pretty much ANY other (greater than three length) pattern will unlock the device. Running os 4.

OS4 support is fine, so is this an issue with the firmware or the version of Androidlock?

Actually quite scary, as being able to put in any combination and unlock the device makes the software as useless as disabling the lock screen altogether.
