I've posted about this in other threads, but decided to make my own to increase visibility, since not every dev checks every post.
I really like the transparency of the Nexus Lock Screen, but don't like that I have to give up all other fuctionality (music controls, alarm controls, the look of incoming calls, airplane mode, battery low icons, etc.) So, what I was hoping for, was only the removal of the background image, leaving all other functions in-tact.
Really hoping this is possible and someone is willing to look into it.
