I wanted to stay on 4.3 but stupid update popup kept popping up and i accidentally hit it today
so now I have updated to 4.4 and i absolutely hate the new lockscreen when I listen to music. Is there any way i can revert back to the old music widget or at least turn off that new feature?

Thanks

Yeah, me too, I like the previous lockscreen too.

I can still browse and choose the songs in the list when i am in the lockscreen.

Someone help, anyway to bring it back?

Yea I like the old music widget where you can choose what song you want and turn shuffle/repeat on and off. With this new lockscreen all these features are removed as well as I find the album art really disturbing.

I can disable music player lockscreen completely in N7player (or use the app-version lockscreen)...

Thus enabling me to use a lockscreen replacer or the widget.

Maybe look into using a different music player than stock?

Changing from stock player won't necessarily change the lockscreen, as the new style is applied to any music player that supports native lockscreen controls, like Spotify.

I know. I didn't say it did. I said you could disable music lockscreen completely or force the build-in one.

Screenshots attached so you see what I mean. All three with music playing, not paused.

I tried changing to Player Pro, but the control became disable on the lock screen. As in i can pause or forward to next track from the lockscreen.

Hoping to find a solution while still using the stock player.

really liked the previous lockscreen/ player so much better before kit kat, can just swipe downwards to see the songs in the floder/ playlis while in lockscreen.

And also with N7player do you need to have root to remove the lockscreen?
