I use Textra for my text messaging. And it looks like LG only allows LG messaging/phone to use the lockscreen for notifications. Is there a way to use the stock lockscreen to see notifications (other than in the bar).

Im not rooted yet since I have the Sprint version. But I will be once it comes out. So if there is a root solution you can mention that as well. This is my 1st LG, so I didnt know if this is just something that most people know how to do from the G2 or if people realize its impossible to do. Any feedback is welcome. Thanks

I've used Nils for over a year and it just keeps getting better and better. Here's the link https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...icationswidget

Ive tried Nils. It didnt play well with the lockscreen as far as clicking a notification and bypassing the lockscreen to open the app. It would open the app in the background and then show it once you finally unlocked the phone.

But maybe Ive just gotta play with the options a little more if thats the only real option at the moment. since I wasn really looking to download a new lockscreen app because Ive found that they are usually battery hogs.

Ill give the ACDisplay app a try too and see if I like that as well.

Hopefully someone will come out with a mod in the future to get more notification control on the LG lockscreen itself

I'm not sure, but I seriously think I got Textra notifications at one point along with Skype and Trillian.

I use Nils with Widgetlocker. Never had an issue with opening notifications.

I think the major downside about Nils for me was that notifications lagged behind the unlocks. To be more specific, after I unlock the device, the notifications would stay afloat for at least for a visible split sceond before they disappear. Using DashNotifier, it would disappear as soon as you start to place your finger on the screen for swipe - although it had some problems on its own of not showing lone notifications. (i.e. it would show if I got 2 texts, but not one.)

I never found any fixes for any of these, as they seemed quite rare occurance to most people. All that's left is to wait for Lollipop to come out on vs985!

The current version of Textra definitely gives you notifications in the lockscreen, and it also wakes up the screen.
