I keep see this posted all over the place people wanting to keep the Acer bubble notification but use the default Gingerbread lockscreen.

This is what this CWM flash file will do. It will completely remove the Acer Lockscreen with all its widgets but will let you keep using the Acer bubble notifications.

Hmmm, I flashed this and I got the standard Gingerbread lock screen indeed. However, it broke my widgets: all widgets are replaced by white squares saying "problem loading widget". I'm using GOLauncher and the A2SDX version of the performance rom.
Back when I used gingerounay-rom for a while this also happened after every restart.

Ah after restarting a few times it seems that only the first time my widgets were broken.

EDIT: forgot to thank you Pinguy, I apreciate the work u put into all of this.

Me too. I think the script below to update build.prop is incorrect. It should be the other way around.
busybox sed -i 's/acer.shell.mode=DISABLE/acer.shell.mode=ENABLED/g' /system/build.prop

Anymore news on whether this will work? I'm using stock ROM 2.3.6. Don't really want to mess anything up, spent a lot of time getting my phone where it is :D.
