I like having a different wallpaper on the lockscreen than the homescreen, but a lot of the ROMs don't support that. GravityBox does that, but it's too heavy weight for my taste (oh so many features!). A lot of people have been asking for the See Through blurred lockscreen from SaberMod and PA4.0 as well, so I figured I will write a module myself

Requirements
  • Xposed Framework
  • Android KitKat (Stock Google or AOSP)

Features
  • Set lockscreen background with solid color
  • Set lockscreen background with custom image from gallery
  • Set lockscreen background as a semi-see-through "frosted glass" (SaberMod and PA)

Known issues
  • Custom image only works for local images (from gallery)

Xposed Repo

I wrote this mostly for myself, and I don't expect to keep adding features. I have only N5 and N7 2013 (and they both run 4.4.2) so I probably won't support anything below KitKat.

Hmm, I can't get the blur to work, it just shows my default wallpaper. Neither does the custom image mode.

Do you think something else could be interfering? I'm on a Moto X.

Seems to be hit/miss for me. Sometimes the blur works, other times I just get my default lock screen. Weird.

See through works for me but custom image shows as a black screen.
Personal request - please hide the icon from the app drawer, it can be accessed via the Xposed installer so no need to clutter up the screen with yet more icons.

Many thanks
Adrian

Edited: colour fill works.
When selected a custom image, a toast message briefly flashes up saying 'no application installed' then 'background changed'. If I select a .png from inside my file manager, the Xperia Album starts and shows the image so the file association is there. Any ideas?

Running 4.4.2 on an SGS4:

* Color fill works fine
* Custom image works fine. Blur as well.
* See through works fine. Tinting makes no difference however.

All in all: happy
