Here is a recovery zip with the lockscreen and lockscreen settings.-LINK-
Make a copy of the zip and rename it to backup or something. Then open the backup zip with winrar or 7zip. It will open like a folder. Drag the lockscreen and lockscreen settings from your rom into system/app in the backup zip, then close the zip. Now you have a backup. Also back up your rom in recovery just in case.

  1. Put both zips on your internal storage.
  2. Boot into recovery.
  3. Make a nandroid backup of your rom.
  4. Go back to main recovery menu and choose install update zip.
  5. Choose the flexlock.zip I uploaded and flash/install it.
  6. Clear cache and Dalvik just to be safe.
  7. Reboot.

Then check to see if your rom worksand if you have the option in lockscreen settings.
If you have issues booting into the rom then just boot into recovery and flash the backup zip or restore your rom backup.

Bro i love u!!! (No homo) lol. This worked my friend! At first boot all i had was the older looking Optimus G or Pro flower lock screen. Had to change theme to basic theme. Then went into lockscreen settings and changed wallpaper in wallpaper gallery. Rebooted phone. After reboot changed theme to flex, then voilaŽ, flex lockscreen. Not sure if swing works yet but i have a feeling it will. Thanks dude! You're the best!

Are you on a stock based 4.2.2 rom? And did you try the steps Abu Nazir posted?

Nice! It should show water when the phone is tilted down and sky when the phone is tilted up. Mind posting a screenshot?

Is there an option in Settings>Lockscreen to enable Swing Lock screen?

Edit- I just noticed the 'lock circle' on the screenshot.... I think the zip I gave you did not work. When stock LG lockscreen can't be accessed it rolls back to AOSP-style, which you are seeing there... :/
Flex theme will change wallpaper regardless.

Yea that sucks.
Can you change swipe action or change lockscreen at all?

I know you have your Rom "just so" but you could try a Flex rom....

Do you want to stay on 4.2 for any reason? Or move up to 4.4? Aeonflex (link in my sig) is an exceptional Rom. It is still on 4.2 now but the dev has been hinting at an upgrade soon. If you want 4.4 right away, there is Cloudy Flex, and actually CloudyStock has Swing lock but is a 4.4 stock based. All great choices. Also take a look in your device specific dev forum at the stablest/ most used roms.
