The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean brings number of new features and apps along with eye-catching theme and wallpapers, just after the release of Jelly Bean, developers started work on the Jelly Bean to port goodies to their Android devices, the release Android 4.1 Jelly Bean source code has extended the development on jelly bean too. The more modification has to show the appearance now, if you own an Amazon Kindle Fire and have upgraded your tablet with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, now you’re able to modify the  lock screen of you tablet, thanks to senior XDA developer member Josepho1997.

Normally developers develop a .zip file that can be installed in recovery mode, but Josepho1997 didn’t made any recovery-installable .zip file, instead of making .zip file, he written a tutorial that tells you how you can easily modify the lockscreen your tablet.

Tutorial is bit nicer, simple and introductory thing for you, the tutorial is very easy to follow and short. Do keep in mind that, you have to use Photoshop to modify the lockscreen, the Photoshop isn’t necessary, you can also use any other image editing program to do so.  You also need to use 7zip application that can be grabbed from here. The developer runs the files using 7zip that need to be altered for the themeing lock screen. If you’re using Photoshop, the developer gives you some tips about easy color changing color, then you need to repack the file and you’ll have to use your own root explorer app to place files into device such as File Expert app.

The method is designed for just the Kindle Fire, but according to generic nature of the modifications, you can also use apply this method on any Android device running Jelly Bean.
