6. Background…


  1. does not work ,outright broken, waste of money, make sure it works for everyone before making me spend 20.00

  2. it seems the most widely encountered issue has not been fixed. WHY IS UCCW STOPPING?

  3. Thanks for the vids buddy. I've been able to creat my own background images, I've just copied your file details for size (pixels and dpi). The jpg's seem to work most of the time, but I was wondering if there was a sppecific size that works all the time or if there is a way to figure it out from different brands of phones? Thanks again for what you do pal. It's very appreciated.

  4. yepppp…lol totally didnt unzip it then facepalmed so hard… hhaha after that worked fine

  5. The files wont show up when I go to restore it in the widget locker. Ive tried putting the files in my SD card over 10 times now but nothing shows up.

  6. Hi Armando! I have a sideloaded TSF Shell. When I'm using it on any AOKP/CM10.1 Rom, it works well with UCCW. When I'm using Samsung-based Jelly Bean, when I put a UCCW widget, it will say "TSF Shell is loading" and the widget will not be added.

    I tried to do the theme in CM10.1 and used Titanium Backup and TSF Shell backup to restore it when I go back to Samsung-based Jelly Bean. When I restored it, all UCCW Widgets were gone.

  7. what was the problem?
    could you not copy them into the phone or was it some downloading error?

  8. Dude you should do a weekly or daily theme tutorial, because you make some pretty beast themes

  9. when I try to restore widget locker it doesnt appear any UBUNTU LOCK as in the video and I already transfered the sd card files as the video says like 15 times

  10. SOLUTION: Restore ubuntu lock in widget locker again. Then when you get to the lockscreen, press and HOLD on the "Tap to restore widget" thingo. Then it shows you 3 options. Click remove. Then hold on the lockscreen again and press widget to create a new UCCW widget.

  11. What is that "root directory" called on my phone…is it on there stock?

  12. it would be great if u showed how u customized your lock screen and also which battery widget is it?

  13. I love your customized lockscreen, the black one with the clock in the middle and blue circle dots around with slide to unlock. Could you make a tutorial on that?
