Hi xda-community,

I would like to share my first (and extremly simple ) Xposed module with you.
This module allows you to slide before you have to draw/type in your security pattern/pin/whatever. It is particularly useful if you use CyanogenMod (or other ROMs, that allow App shortcuts in lockscreens) and want to use both shortcuts AND a security pattern/pin/whatever. It works similiar to HTC's Sense UI (3.x).


ROMs modified by manufacturers are known to have issues with this module (see below).

Code:
You install and use this module at your own risk!
I am not responsible for any damage it might cause to your beloved device!
Please note, that there is a sad bug present by using App shortcuts (in CM etc.) in lockscreen, which decreases the usability: You have to "unlock" your device with your pattern/pin/whatever twice. If you just unlock you don't have to do it twice. Therefore I rate this module as alpha. I would be very happy if someone has a solution to this problem .


Supported ROMs
TESTED and CONFIRMED WORKING:
AOSP:
- 4.3 (JellyBean)
- 4.4 (KitKat)

AOSP based:
- CM 10.2 (JellyBean 4.3)

Stock/OEM ROMs:
- Asus: 4.2 (JellyBean)
- Sony Xperia: 4.2 (JellyBean) - 4.4 (KitKat)

Should work on:
- 4.2+ (JellyBean) (lockscreen has been overhauled in 4.2, therefore no <= 4.1)
- 4.4 (KitKat)
- all AOSP based ROMs (CM, AOKP, Para, etc.) with Android 4.2+

Unsupported/problematic ROMs
ROMs modified by manufacturers are known to have issues with this module:
Samsung (TouchWiz):
- 4.2/4.3: simply does not work
- 4.4: has less issues, see http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...0&postcount=52

Credits
@rovo89 Your framework is amazing!

Known bugs
- Using app shortcuts causes you to "unlock" your device twice (see above)
- App shortcut to browser does not work (needs confirmation..)

How to use
1. Install Xposed framework as described here
2. Download and install XLockSecuritySlide via Xposed Installer (or see below)
3. Enable XLockSecuritySlide in Xposed Installer
4. Reboot and enjoy!

HELP ME!
If something went wrong (e. g. unlockable device) you can use the flashable Xposed recovery disabler ZIP (see attachment of that post!), which disables Xposed and therefore this module. After that you can safely disable/uninstall this module and re-enable Xposed again!

I don't know it exactly, but I think it could work if Samsung hasn't heavily customized the lockscreen code. I do not have a way to test it out, so I would appreciate you testing it

Well thats really sad... The problem is, that I do not have a Samsung device to test it out. Moreover it requires some work because TW is closed source. I will look at this, if I have enough time!

@Stevolk bro It is working fine in my Xperia ZR running Stock 4.3 Jelly bean. but there is a small bug . The Xperia swipe screen is fine, but the pattern screen becomes black, I approximately need to draw the pattern in order to unlock the screen. But when I enable AOSP lockscreen using GEM Xposed module, both AOSP lock screen & pattern lockscreen is working fine . Thanks for you work. Screens attached for your info

Sorry for my bad English
