This may be one of the most usable new parts of the Dutty TouchFlo cooked ROM for my new AT&T Tilt:
Those of you familiar with Windows Mobile 5 or Windows Mobile 6 will remember the “Unlock” button the center-right portion of the screen that you had to tap with a stylus (or, much less effectively, with your thumb while you are driving – ugh). The new lock/unlock mechanism on this cooked HTC TouchFlo ROM works like this:
- To lock, simply press the hard power key on the right side of the phone.
- To unlock: press the hard power key to “wake up” the display, then SLIDE this button you see above from the left to the right.
Sliding is so much easier than the old “button press” method there’s really no comparison. You can do it with your eyes closed, and it works way more often. Locking is easier too: the old “scroll down on the home page” method is gone, replaced with a hard key.
