Disable LockScreen – HD2 Stops Freezing….It’s Magic

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – NRGZ is a genius.  I saw this tweet from him yesterday and since my HD2 (since the TMo ROM upgrade) had a weird freezing issue especially in Sense and I don’t like the lockscreen anyway I figured I’d go about disabling it to see what happens…and it’s fixed. If you’re using a TMo HD2 with the 6.5 lockscreen enabled disable the thing – it’s doing bad stuff. [There’s still a little bug in HTC Messaging but that’s a separate issue entirely.] There are two lockscreens on the HD2 – disable them both and just use the power key to turn your screen on and off. The registry values are:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Shell\Lockscreen = 0

HKCU\ControlPanel\Keybd\DeviceLockWhenSuspend = 0 [if you don’t have this then add it]

Soft reset…wait for it…wait for it…smile :)
