If you've at all paid attention to the recent news from RIM, the latest version of its OS -- BlackBerry 10 -- is definitely coming (no really guys, we're serious this time). We don't know when that'll be for certain, and we're not so sure it's going to pull anyone away from the Android world. If you're curious to try out the lockscreen from BB10, however, here's your chance.

The always hacker-minded folks over at XDA have conjured up a mod to add the lockscreen to some specific devices on specific versions of Android, mainly 4.1 Jelly Bean at the moment, but hopefully expanded support is coming soon.

Party like it's Q1 2013 with this BB10 lockscreen mod


A lot of nice features on those BB10 phones. I hope they do good.
Don't know if they could get Android people to switch a 4.1
Android Phone runs way too smooth.

The Developer states that it should run on any ICS AOSP ROM as well, but ICS is currently untested. Guess I'll be a guinea pig.

Its a feature phone (with some smart phone like features) that was popular until 2010.

lol, I used to love blackberry...

If Android fans are wetting themselves over a "replica" of the beta version of the BB10 lock screen then you will gobble up french/cinnamon toast.

Yeah we have tasty treats on BB as well! (Yeah it is still baking but the smell keeps getting better!!)
