Great mod buddy .
Sorry i misspelled the app a little...
But great mod.
And its amazing to see that such mod has no bugs!
Has password system? I want full privacy (nevermind what you think , thats not the case)
As I mentioned this mod merely enables a Google-built feature, any changes are made by Google or the Cyanogenmod team. In saying that, yes, there is a password system, it works just like an ordinary lockscreen password.

This should work with upcoming nightlies but I provide no guarantee that it will.
And yes you will need to flash it again every time you update CM10.1

It basically does what the title says, it enables multiple users on the Samsung I9300.

You need to adb push the apk and replace the current framework-res.apk
This apk was made from the latest nightly build of CM10.1 for the I9300.

PLEASE NOTE: I haven't perfected the layout so the user switcher may be on top of your lockscreen widgets!

PLEASE NOTE: This mod only works on Android 4.2 and higher! This mod has only been tested on Cyanogenmod 10.1!

Cheers!

- copy APK to /system using Root Explorer or any other file manager with root access
- now set correct permissions (rw-r--r--)
- move and replace APK to /system/framework
- reboot

I was experimenting with this last week and noticed a few things working on my own solution:

Phone app doesn't work, can't place a call on another user. Source of phone app checks for userid == 0.
Using the user switcher tile tries to load the multi user view widget, which is missing. So adding it manually on the lock screen is a bad idea as it interferes with the widget space.


Have you looked into this?

The lock screen widgets at the moment are kinda useless so the user switcher is placed on top, but this is noted in the first post.
As for the phone app, if you can send me the exact location of that code (file and line) then I can take a look at it but I make no promises to get it working.

Well I started working on this last week on Tuesday, but got hold up due to x-mas etc.

When I'm home I'll show you the exact lines where it checks, I'm not sure why it checks for userid 0. Maybe just leaving it out will make it work.

I don't think that the widget is useless, overlaying the switcher is just ugly and hackish. If you put the switcher into a widget the android way it would be a much better solution.

It's also the reason why I hadn't put up a topic on xda. Because my solution right now makes any widgets on the lock screen get an offset and I'd rather get the widget working so if you use the tile switcher it doesn't add a non existing one (square with a plus sign).

Just my two cents
