Default Working auto keyboard lock app with new OS leaks???

Please Login to Remove!

with the latest OS leaks .536 and .545, with the new locking standard, my Beiks auto lock app has been useless. i'm wondering if anyone knows of a working auto keyboard lock. or if anyone happens to know if Beiks is working on an update. and please note, the subject of this post is about an app. not the leaked OS. so please don't hate and tell me in posting in the wrong section.

So actually it should go in the Aftermarket Software forum but.....

Since these OS leaks literally JUST came out, I'm thinking they probably haven't developed any apps to work around this yet.

The lock feature has been changed across the board on all devices running the latest OS 5.0 handheld code.

You can always just use the lock button on the top left of the device...that's what I've been doing since I installed .545.

the lock button IS the problem. back before there was a dedicated lock button, you would have to enter a keyed sequence. * send this made much more sense and prevented accidental unlocking. i think the idea of a dedicated lock button is extremely foolish. my device unlocks its self multiple times a day. (i keep it in my pocket)
