I am now one bug fix away from launching these The bug is that certain apps are stopping the correct operation of the 2.0 optimized method I am now using. When screen first sleeps, my process attempts to get started and ready to give you a lag-free, unlocked wakeup. Basically primes itself by taking over the lockscreen. But if browser was open, this fails, & instead it only starts when you wake the screen up. It's like the request gets paused and the OS puts it off till we wake the screen up again. The result is you have to sleep it again and wake up again to get unlocked, because the logic is to do nothing at start, and wait for the next wakeup. When google talk or the home screen launcher (or even the home replacement I use- slidescreen) no conflict happens, it works like it should. But then when you're trying to wake it up to resume where you were in browsing, it just doesn't get started correctly. Totally misses the boat. The point of the 2.0 method is that it is very smooth and fast, and never fails due to CPU load. It never has a flicker. You never see the stock lockscreen since we override it at sleep. So this next release will be really solid and a better experience, if there is any fix for this bug.
You can download a totally functional test build that shows where we are at with this, it just will have a large issue trying to work on the first try when browsing or a few other apps. For the actual alpha 3 it will have no widget lockscreen option as that method won't be finished till we have launcher functions & key customization working within it (for the beta). Other than that it should include a preference whether sliding open should cause the unlock, to help protect against accidental pocket slider bumps, have had some requests for that.
Update: Still trying to resolve some more bugs. Going crazy over the failure to wakeup that seems to happen with a lot of attempts following the power key re-sleep. My current fix seems to resolve it when timeout sleeps happen. the bug doesn't want to happen when i'm plugged in to USB monitoring the program log. something in the timing is the only root cause I can think of.
I have a fix so it very reliably yields to any screen popup and runs very smoothly, plus allows exit via home key and use of notification bar. If i can get this bug killed then I will add the option if users want an Unlock slider and roll out alpha 3 with some cool new options and the custom lockscreen....
