a few questions regarding this tweak..

1-Does it play nice with Lockinfo or BiteSMS?
2-does it drain battery?
3-is it worth the $1.99?

I've had it since yesterday and I can tell you it has little effect on battery life and in my opinion is definitely worth the money. (Unlocking the phone is actually faster than the stock Apple slider :eek:)

I have a problem with the home screen not showing up behind the unlock animation though. After re-spring, the home screen was a bright green when unlocking, and now it just transitions through pure black instead of through the home screen behind it.

Anyone else having this issue?

No green, but otherwise the same issue. The animations just don't look good when there's blackness behind them. I'm guessing something is interfering. I use LockInfo. Do you guys use that or anything similar? (I.e. IntelliscreenX)

I talked with the tweak creator and he told me the problem (and solution!) so let me PM you the details. :cool:

Unlockize seems much better than unfold.

If you use Lockinfo, beware. It did something to my system where LS only shows up on my lock screen 10% of the time, even after removing it and reinstalling Lockinfo.

Will have to start over tonight.

Why not post the fix here so others down the line in the next few weeks can get it fixed without starting another new thread?:confused:

If you have the Springtomize, disable the TV animation. This solved my Unlockize problem.

I should note that I had the same problem with Unfold and iUnlock, and this change did not solve that problem for those two tweaks.

Figured it would have been something like that but I was thinking it would've have been always show wallpaper while charging...

I didn't think it would be the TV Animation either. I actually assumed it had to do something directly on the lock screen, too. Whether it was ISX, LockInfo, custom sliders, etc. But yeah, hope that worked for ya.
