[Guide] Get Camera Access on Stock 4.4 Secured Lock Screen
Not sure if this is will be of any use to anyone, but just putting it out there.
I personally want to use my pattern password lock, but be able to to quick access camera. Since upgrading to 4.4 I haven't found any apps or mods that let me doit on root stock till now.
You'll need to be rooted first.
Install Xposed (you are on rooted stock, you do have this installed right? riiight?)
Combining these two mods got the camera access working.
Unlock effect before security widget
Enable camera on lockscreen
Enable them and reboot. Neither have a UI or any settings to control.
And everything should be working
