I'm pretty new with making a tutorial on XDA. If I'm doing something wrong or you have a suggestion to make, then feel free to PM me




What's NFC Key?

NFC Key is a method of unlocking your phone (from the lockscreen) by simply touching your NFC tag on the back of your device.





Requirements

☞ Rooted Android Device ☜

☞ "NFC on lockscreen" MOD installed ☜
If this MOD is not yet supported on your device, kindly ask one of XDA members to port it over to your device!

☞ An NFC Tag ☜
A tag that can be written. Meaning if the tag is "Read-Only", then this probably won't work!

☞ Tasker ☜
Download

☞ Secure Settings ☜
Download

☞ NFC Task Launcher ☜
Download



Install Tasker before any other Tasker-related apps in order to avoid any sort of conflicts






How to Setup

Secure Settings
Quote:


Go to "Preferences"
Check "Device Administrator"

Click "Verify Helper" just to be sure...

I've installed / configures everything as described. Once the screen is locked and I hold the nfc tag to the phone I see that the apps are triggered behind but it never unlocks my phone :\ any advice?

I'm not 100% sure if the error is on my part or on a 3rd party app.
I can't test the NFC Key on my current phone due to lack of hacks(ROM/MOD) available for Korean Model.
But since I pulled the Tasker's task from TiBackUp, it shouldn't have any problem.

My previous USA phone will be ship to me within a month or so.
Until then, let's try something...

Can you try the following steps?
1) Go to "Tasker" app
2) View the menu with your hard key (soft key if it's in your screen)
3) Click "More"
4) Click "Run An Action"
5) Click "Plugin"
6) Click "Secure Settings"
7) Click "Edit" button
8) Click "Keyguard"
9) Click "Off"
10) Click "Save" icon on the bottom
11) Go back using hard key or app's back key
Try turning off and on your screen, are you free from the lockscreen?

Try Re-installing Helper on Secure Settings...
That might not have setup properly
