    Transparent Lock Screen Image? (Help!)

    Hey everyone,

    I'm trying to find out how to make the lock screen transparent. I want the user-defined wallpaper from the main screen to show up still when the lock screen is activated... the same way it works in the default Precision Zen theme that ships with the BB Storm.

    Does anyone have any insight on this? I tried using a transparent image, but that just makes the lock screen completely white

    Any input would be awesome - I know it's possible since the default theme does it, I just can't figure it out myself!

    Thanks a lot

    The lock screen background is theme defined. Whatever the builder puts as the lock screen remains. What theme are you using?

    Thanks, Rellims. I am using my own theme creation, one of the flavors of my : elle : theme suite. (linked!) I am running a beta version of it that is not out to the public yet (only my testers and I are running it). I'm looking into using a transparent lock screen with the theme... and as you know, I haven't been successful with it yet.

    As the builder, I am hoping there is a way to select to use an svg in my lock screen, and then manually edit the svg code to display an image pointing to the same path that the wallpaper path points to. Not sure if this is possible at all, but I figured a person more experienced than I might be able to say.

    I've only heard negative responses so far, but I'm still keeping my mind open and trying to think of a workaround for this. The idea was inspired by the default BB Storm Precision Zen theme, and recommended to me by a user of my theme.

    Rellims is correct. But, if you let your
    Memory get real low and switch back and
    Forth between themes sometime you will end
    Up with different sections of the different
    Themes. Did that help? :lmao: I'm here for you!
    Plug me if that's good info. :chairfall:

    Most of the themes I have loaded right now stay with the custom wallpaper on the lock screen and about half stay with it on the app screen. Totally depends on the theme as you said.

    The SVG theory sounds good but I don't think its possible with the plazmic we have. I also have not seen a thee with it either.

    BTW I'm rocking elle my self now, very nice concept and execution.

    Thanks Rellims and everyon else for the info.

    Maybe I'll just have to introduce a huge leak in my themes to get dynamic lock screen wallpapers
