Remove the Huawei lockscreen

Bleugh.. I don't like the Huawei 4-way lockscreen but there isn't an option to select the original stock Jelly Bean lockscreen. Or is there?...

Dead simple this. Open Settings, then Manage Apps, then slide over to All. Find Huawei Unlock, press it then hit the Force Stop button then the Disable button.

Now back in Settings go to Security then Screen lock. Set this to Huawei unlock (trust me here).

Press power button to turn phone off. Turn it back on and hey presto. Stock lockscreen :D

Now you may notice that the lockscreen has a different wallpaper to your homescreen. Easy to change. Open the Themes application then hit Customize Current Theme. Hit Lock Screen then select Use home screen wallpaper. Done!



search string with "lock" in build.prop :)

does anyone know how to edit the shortcuts on the default android lockscreen?

Speaking of Themes, has anyone here successfully uninstalled/frozen HwThemeManager.apk? Not that I'm looking for guinea pigs exactly, but I'll admit I'm a little weary to try myself, not knowing exactly how deep certain aspects of Emotion UI runs within the device.

I've uninstalled it, along with the emotion ui. Running nova, most of the Huawei bloat gone.

I have installed an aftermarket launcher, which means that I can just forget about the Huawei interface.

I was able to dispense with the Huawei lock screen via the security setting. I set a pin lock, although here is also the option for a pattern lock. You might even be able to have no lock at all.

So, I thought I'd start a little thread off. It'll be a collection of tips & tricks for getting the best out of the stock G510.


I'll start with one tip that I've already found to be quite useful. The phone comes with 4GB of storage which is shared up between the ROM, system DATA, app DATA so the actual amount of space left for apps is rather poor. Because of this you may find that several larger apps will just fail to install even after you've added a microSD card.

The phone is rather quirky with regards to storage - as I've found out. The best tip to sorting this out is to insert an 8GB or 16GB microSD card (the bigger the better) - and one that is at least Class 6 - into the phone then open Settings then Storage. Change Default storage location to the SD card and the phone will give you a warning. Accept this warning and wait for the system to set the microSD up for you. Once it has been set up you'll find that the microSD is now your default app storage so anything you install should be movable to the microSD rather than the internal storage.

Until I did this I was finding that it wasn't possible to move any apps to the microSD card. A bug or intentional behavior.. who knows.

For some reason i cant save the changes in the build.prop file, i have rooted my phone and granted permission, tried root explorer and es file explorers, both do not save the changes.
