KeyGuard customization

 Hello,
 Is there any way to customize the keyguard with an application ?
 I'm trying to make a small app that enables me to add content to the
keyguard and I'm looking for a way to make it with the framework.
The only way I found is to disable the keyguard, using a receiver
listening for a screen-off  and to show a custom view at the screen-on
with another receiver... Therefore I have to recode all the default
locking mechanism...
Is there another way ?

Regards

 Sorry, there is currently no way to.

Please be very careful about fiddling with the keyguard state -- it is
incredibly easy to get this wrong and open significant security holes in the
system.

Do you think they recode a full system like I tried ?

 I think they did some pretty grody hacks, and I am pretty positive they
didn't customize the keyguard, but just completely turned it off and show
their own thing.  (I also don't know much about it, so this is all
speculation, but I would be deeply concerned about it introducing holes
where people can get by the lock screen by doing the right trick, or
situations where their lock screen is not being hidden when it should.  The
user interaction between the lock screen and the rest of the system is
incredibly complicated, and always a thorn in our side during development to
get completely right.  That is one of the reasons we haven't yet provided a
way for people to replace it.)
