I'm now on Hyperdrive 17.1 (using 4.4.2) so it no longer works. Does anyone know of a replacement that will allow me to have that same functionality?
There was an xposed app that allowed me to access widgets while the lockscreen was securely locked (so I can start music without having to unlock the phone with a pattern or pin to access the music app). It was called "Samsung Multiple Widgets". It does not work for any ROMs above 4.3.
