    HELP!! Locked Out after Gingerbread Update - Circles on Home Screen

    Yesterday for some unknown reason, my home screen changed and now I cannot get passed it. There is a circle with a smaller circle with a lock icon and 4 apps around it. Is there a certain way to unlock? I can still use the finger scanner or combination, but once I get to the home screen, I get the circles.

    I have tried rebooting and wiping the cache to no avail.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thar sounds like an app I've seen. Have you downloaded any lock screen apps?

    I have much experience with unlocked bootloaders and custom ROMs on the original ATRIX. I will do my best to hold your hand through any problem, small or large, on any phone. Please open up a thread in the help section (or Rescue Squad section if your phone is in dire need) or PM me. I don't bite

    yes I have rip lock, Fancy Widgets, and Beautiful Widgets loaded, but I only used the FW clock and weather. Now those are gone from the Home screen also.

    I think he can't even get anywhere with it. Let me see if I can find some instructions for RipLock.


    Edit: I can't find RipLock in the market? Are you sure that's the name?

    It is called Ripple Lock (Free) in the market. I can't get past this screen to get to settings or applications to uninstall.

    What happens when you drag the lock to one of the four applications..i thought that was supposed to unlock the screen.

    I can walk you through a factory reset but that's not the best option.

    When I would drag to one of four applications it would open that application, but nothing else. I still was not able to get to settings are applications.

    I went with the factory reset option. I can start from scratch now and load only those apps that I know work.
