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

So, recently I upgraded my Nexus 4 from 4.4.4 KitKat to 5.0 Lollipop. It was running TimePin at the time and when I booted into 5.0 it was still working - the time was changing and all the features of the app were working. However, after a few minutes the pin code suddenly became locked on a certain time meaning that I had to try random times between when I last used my device.

To conclude - TimePin initially works fine on Lollipop but becomes stuck after a while. It shouldn't be too hard to port it forwards for unencrypted devices imo.

I install Timepin on my S5 running 5.0 Lollipop but when I open the app to turn it on the toggles don't move so I cannot turn off the "Disable Timepin" switch. The drop down menu works but I can not activate timepin. It's like it doesn't not register me pressing it
