Put the Sense 3.0 lockscreen on your HTC EVO 4G
Owners of the HTC EVO 4G might feel a little envious since their device is loaded with Sense 2.1 and the upcoming HTC EVO 3G will launch with Sense 3.0. It might reduce the hue of green that EVO 4G owners have been wearing by downloading the Sense 3.0 lockscreen on their handset.

To be able to install the Sense 3.0 lockscreen, you need a rooted EVO 4G with a Sense 2.1 based Gingerbread ROM. Download and install the .apk file, turn off and then on your device and you should have the new lockscreen up and ready to use. And speaking of using the new screen, it features a round semi-transparent ring that you move up to unlock the phone.

The new lockscreen features music app controls and a alarm snooze/dismiss button. It should be pointed out that the applications shortcuts are not working. When it is up and running, the plan is for the user to drag the ring to a shortcut which will instantly launch the app.

The music app controls and the alarm snooze/dismiss button will both work when you install the HTC Sense 3.0 lockscreen on the HTC EVO 4G

Cool, just want the newest Sense on the Evo Shift if and when Gingerbread comes to it.

It will not get the newest sense. Hardware is not built for the OS. It will only get 2.1

Actually, I'm pretty sure the Evo is still on sense 1.0. The Inspire, Desire HD, and TBolt are on sense 2.1. Evo needs some love but it prob won't get it until after Evo 3D comes out.

I would try it but I just can't pass up CM7 on my EVO... Gesture lock screen is just too advanced for any phone out there right now.
I mean what kind of person in their right mind would be able to unlock my phone with my personal gesture lock?

CM7 is lame. I couldn't stand how bland it was and how much it looks like Samsung and Kyocera UI's. Sense is the best.

its based of AOSP how is that lame? Its almost pure android, but with CM7 settings there is so much more you can customize.

Don't worry about him, he's usually the type of flasher that just flashes a rom and sees what free stuff the rom has to offer.
Doubt he even checks the internals or anything.
Funny part is most sense roms nowadays are removing all of sense and are just staying on it because of the internal coding.

This just shows how desperate people get to have HTC Sense :)
