What you need to know

  • Samsung Good Lock recently received an update that adds support for One UI 3.0 (Android 11)
  • Good Lock allows users to further customize their Galaxy smartphones using various modules.
  • The update is currently rolling out and will be complete by the end of the week.

Updates are always fun, and Samsung has been fairly good about updating its current batch of Galaxy smartphones to the latest One UI 3.0 based on Android 11. While the update brings a lot of goodies and enhancements, it can also break some things too if they're not updated and optimized for the update. Unfortunately, this usually happens with Samsung's Good Lock app whenever a major OS update is pushed out. Fortunately, those of you who use Samsung's Good Lock app can now rejoice, as XDA-Developers points out that Samsung is currently rolling out updates to add support for One UI 3.0.

For those unfamiliar with Good Lock, it's an app that can be found on Samsung's Galaxy Store. It allows you to customize your phone to your liking, using different downloadable modules like LockStar, NavStar, NotiStar, EdgeLighting+, and more to fiddle around with various aspects of the UI. Android is already fairly customizable, and OEMs usually add their own flair and level of customizability to their smartphones, but Good Lock takes things to another level for Galaxy phones, and can even be compared to some of the best Android launchers.

The update should be rolling out now to Galaxy users, and the app even gains a color new icon in the process. Several of the modules have also been updated, and more should follow soon.

  • Good Lock has worked fine before the update. Only a few modules weren't working and still aren't!
    And the app looks now as if it's designed for a toddler! Animated and mismatched colors make this one of the most ridiculous looking apps available!
    Fortunately, once everything is set up one doesn't need to open that thing anymore.
  • What was the name of the Recent Menu toggle? I need that! Edit: Task Changer. I got there.
  • The individual modules are still showing a "not compatible" message even after the main app has updated
  • I was excited this morning when I got the update but it was short lived when I realized it did nothing for the modules I care about. They need to be updated as well. I miss Quick Star and Task Changer.
  • Keyboard effects still not working on One UI 3.0 update with the S20 Ultra
  • Hope they hurry up and update the 'Clockface' module. Always On Display on One Ui 3.0 has taken a huge step back in terms of features and personalisation.
