On my first Android phone, the Droid (running stock Android OS), when the pattern lock was enabled, that would be the only lock screen I was presented with when turning on the screen.

Now I'm using a Droid 3 and it has a "2-stage" lock screen when the pattern lock is enabled. So when I turn on the screen, I have to first swipe to unlock and then enter the pattern after that. Is there any way to go back to the original Droid experience of a single lock screen, even with the pattern lock enabled?

  • That questions deals more with timing of the pattern lock screen after the swipe screen. I want to disable to swipe screen so only the pattern lock screen is necessary.

  • My bad, I pasted that without fully re-reading it. I though there was another question the same as yours but I can't find it. Anyways, hopefully someone knows how to do this. Commented Aug 4, 2011 at 16:13
  • That sounds like some bug to me in motoBLUR (or what ever they call it now). I am running android 2.3.5 and when I enable pattern lock, it is the only screen that I see when turning the device back on. Commented Aug 4, 2011 at 19:33
  • Ryan, I agree it is something that is part of Motorola's skin, because as I mentioned, it was not an issue when I was running stock Android. Hoping a Motorola Android expert could help.

Without rooting, etc there is no way on the Droid 3 to go back to the Droid 1 lockscreen experience. Motorola and their forum users recommend using a lock timer so you don't have to use the pattern every time.
