the thing is ... always-on encryption was scrapped by google after all the backlash, so TimePIN could simply disable itself if it detects that encryption is on, as it did before

xposed for lollipop is a huge difference ... rovo has chosen to modify the art libraries AND art compiler itself which has huge implications going forward like if/when google modifies a library or the compiler

I have seen other apps use the same systemAdmin permission as TimePIN to modify lockscreen pin and function properly under lollipop (altho nowhere near as nicely as TimePIN) ... so I would think that if TimePIN was re-packaged under sdk 22, then it should work just as smoothly under lollipop 5.1 as it does under kitkat .. with same systemAdmin permission ... for non-encrypted devices, of course

the real issue is how backward-compatible TimePIN has to be (within the same package apk)

I am hopeful that jcase will have the time to give it a try

this app is the only thing that I miss from kitkat
