If you’ve switched from an Android-based smartphone to an iPhone and missing the Android-like lock screen where you can draw the correct pattern to unlock, then we have you covered.

Jailbreak app – AndroidLock XT – as the name suggests brings the Android-like lock screen to jailbroken iOS devices instead of using the passcode.

AndroidLockXT includes the following features:

  • Customizable appearance and themes
  • Enable/Disable switch
  • Tap/Slide to unlock (AndroidLock is minimized)
  • Compatible with LockCalendar, LockInfo and Cydgets
  • Max attempts limit
  • Emergency call
  • Can be set to require pattern only after some time
  • iCaughtU support

AndroidLock XT supports the following iOS devices and software updates:

  • iPhone (iOS 4/iOS 5)
  • iPod touch (iOS 4/iOS 5)
  • iPad (iOS 3.2/iOS 4/iOS 5)

After installing AndroidLock XT, slide to unlock will now bring the Android-like lockscreen.

The nice thing about the app is that there are several themes available for free on Cydia, which allows you to change the look and feel of the lock screen if you get bored of the default themes like the theme that brings Android 4.0 a.k.a Ice Cream Sandwich lock screen to your iOS device:

Update: AndroidLock XT is available on Cydia for $1,49.
