I have searched and searched, tried various mods, etc...

I want to change the amount of rows so the weather and clock on the Sense 6 lockscreen do not overlap. I am running the latest ViperOne and have enabled 5 rows rows on the homescreens and appdrawer. I have tried various different mods and sense 6 weatherclock themes (via xposed and otherwise) without any success. Does anyone know of a mod or fix I can use other than going back to 4 rows on my homescreens?

I cannot post external links of the screenshots I have because of my low post count. Sorry. Basically, the weather icon on the lockscreen will overlap with the clock (and it is smaller than what is shown on blinkfeed), but it does not overlap on the blinkfeed homescreen.

Thanks!

Nevermind. I finally found a fix. I used a non stock HTC weather mod via venom hub and it fixed the issue. Now to try some other themes that will work in 5 row mode.

Must be a bug in a theme or Venom
I don't want to re-install Venom to see if it is a bug in Venom or an addon I applied awhile ago. I am unable to change the weather or clock theme via venom tweaks. It seems to be related to using anything Sense 6 stock for the clock or weather. I just flashed a new full theme and the bug is back. Still investigating. It would be nice to have a mod for the lockscreen to sue the default sense 6 wetherclock with 5 rows on the lockscreen. I have yet to find a mod for just this. Can anyone point me to a howto or manpage on how to create this kind of mod? I am a bit new to android development, but I have made a few apps. I am not new to Linux kernel development (former ALSA contributor).

Thanks!

The bug is in the AOSP lockscreen.
Frustrating.... I want to hide the dock on the lockscreen. There is no setting for this, but enabling the ASOP lockscreen enables hiding the dock on blinkfeed hides the dock on the AOSP lockscreen as well. When using the Sense 6 lockscreen, there seems to be no way to hide the dock. I like the AOSP lockscreen unlock widget. Unfortunatley, Venom seems to have a bug in their Venom lockscreen tweaks where CM-style pattern dots only works with AOSP. Venom AOSP mode has the 4 row lock bug for the weather and clock. Perhaps the next version of Venom will address this.

I think I might ditch Sense 6 and go to 4.4.4 stock Android mod (or an AOSP rom) with a custom kernel and use GO Launcher for now. I used GO launcher on my 1st GEN EVO and I loved it.
