Just Followed this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2342370 to activate lockscreen particle effect and i can confirm it's working with my T311 with Stock Kitkat ROM , dont know it will works or not with other devices.

Before Follow this Guide, make sure you have rooted your phone.

1) Download sqlite editor app here

2) Open the app and give it root permissions. It should populate a list.

3) Scroll and Tap the "Settings Storage"

4) Tap "Settings.db"

5) Tap "System"

6) Scroll down until you find "lockscreen_ripple_effect"
7) Highlight it and Tap "Edit Record" and change the value between 1-7 (default is 3).
change it to 0, you get the original circle lockscreen.
change it to 1, you get the water ripple effect..
change it to 2, you get the lens flare effect.
change it to 3, you get the particle effect.
change it to 4, you get the N3 water effect.
change it to 5, you get an Xperia-like effect.
change it to 6, you get something like the circle lockscreen, but with a line.
change it to 7, you get something that's a mixture between original circle lock and ripple lockscreen.

11) Save and try the new lockscreen effect.

PS : If you reboot your device, the effect will revert back to default. You have to change manually each time you reboot your device.

Update
i have succesfully add an option to choose the unlock effect in settings menu, but unfortunately its same with previous, it will revert back to "none" each time i reboot.

good to know.... so seems the code is there.... adding it to settings being chooseable near ripple and light will not be so hard.

Will try for it soon.... thanks for pointing

sure here for you all:



just one bug under fixing, the printing icon too big

Settings are completely inverted with some touch of black, will work of course with screenshot rom version(not sure about other KK ones)

New lockscreen effects enabled, those will revert to none after reboot...still under fixing.
I do not have so much time, but entire blacked out theme will be out when finished..... some fixes needed in framework as some text is still unreadable.

For that popup in previous post regarding effects(Tab S style) u need framework, which has stiil some bugs(you are feel free to ask but no moaning as i'm already aware of bugs )

here is the apk, push it via adb or qtadb, or use a root explorer giving rw-r-r permissions

i have tried to flash your modified SecSettings.apk, but when i choose the lockscreen menu, there is no new lockscreen effect in there...
