  • AndroidLock: Lock/Unlock your iPhone, Android Style


    An Android phone features a unique lockscreen, where you have to connect various dots to unlock your phone rather than enter in a passcode or slide to unlock. There are 9 dots in total, and gives a little extra security just incase your friend happens to look over while you punch in your numbered code.

    Just released to Rock and Cydia, comes AndroidLock, available now for free. This iPhone and iPod tweak will transform your iPhone lockscreen into an Android styled lockscreen where you connect dots in the same manner to unlock your phone. Simply draw the pattern to unlock.

    On a side note, there were many discussions about the androids security flaws in their lockscreen method being hackable by a certain combination, however, my guess is there will be some sort of issue here, some way to get around it. We'll soon find out.

      Great mod, just needs some simple improvements.

      Found an easy way around this lock, for those of you with IntelliScreen. Click on an SMS or E-mail, and "Launch" the application, simply takes you to the app with no unlock required.

      Intelliscreen can be minimized on the lockscreen by swiping the clock area. Try that and see if it allows you to use the unlock then. Thinking out loud.

      Yeah, I just realized this does work. Kind of a hassle tho having to disable IntelliScreen every time.

      With my last post, here is my concern: When you have a passcode to unlock your phone, IntelliScreen disappears when prompted to enter your passcode. This lock should use the same method, where once the user slides the "slide to unlock" icon, the 9 dots should pop up, and IntelliScreen should disappear.

      Just my two cents.

      Using diskaid, go into your iPhone's root file system and into the root go into library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries and change AndroidLock.dylib to AndroidLock.disabled

      It doesn't require slide to unlock to show up. It is just there covering my awesome background.

      To use the default iPhone lockscreen, you need to uninstall AndroidLock.

      Another feature that should be added is an ON/OFF toggle in settings.

      While it would be convenient, is it that much of a pain to uninstall/reinstall? :/

      No, at least not for me. But similar things like the Five-Column SpringBoard has a toggle.
