    Wondering if any one else is having a problem with the Bypass PIN lock patch.

    When I have it installed, about 50% of the time when I drag the lock icon to unlock the screen, my screen freezes on the gradiented screen and the lock icon disappears. I never make it to the desktop or even to the PIN screen.

    When I'm stuck on the gradient screen, I can hold the power button, and the reset options will come up, but I can't tap on any options. I can only reboot with a battery pull or opt+sym+r.

    I've removed the patch for now to see if the same thing happens without it.

    Honestly I've had this problem occasionally and I didn't even know that patch existed (so it was obviously never installed). Happened on the wife's Pre as well actually.

    I have yet to be able to reproduce the issue without the patch. Interesting to know it's happening to unpatched pres. Perhaps there is another patch that's causing it?
    I can't think of anything else that would cause it as no other patches I have installed interact with the lock screen or home screen.

    I currently use 4x4v3, battery icon as %, date as carrier string, default to month, enable add/delete pages, hide nascar app, just charge by default, resume play for books, unhide devmode, untrottle downloads.

    So now I've got an new interesting bug. Instead of the normal lock screen (clock with gradient and lock icon) I get my normal wall paper and launcher bar with the icon overlaid.
    I can't take a screen shot of it, since sliding my device open to get the keyboard unlocks it.

    i also suffered from the PIN bypass causing my phone to freeze sometimes. It happened almost every time i went to unlock my screen to answer a call.

    I got tired of the issue so i just removed the patch.

    Now I am wondering if we can get haptic feedback on the PIN unlock screen.

    This patch work for me 98% of the time with no problems. Very rarely have I seen a greyed screen.
    Pilot 5K->Palm IIIc->Tungsten T/T2->Treo 650/680 -> Pre+ (1.4.5 & Uberkernel)

    I see this patch in preware all the time but I dont get what exactly it does. "Allows you to bypass the PIN entry to unlock your device." What does that mean?
