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

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

  • 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.


  • May 13, 2014 - 1.6.2 - Add Russian and Ukrainian translations (thanks @JRoot3D)
  • Apr 4, 2014 - 1.6.1 - Fix for SlimROM for real this time (thanks @JKab)
  • Mar 31, 2014 - 1.6 - Fix module not working on SlimROM. Add Slovenian translation (thanks kv1dr)
  • Mar 11, 2014 - 1.5 - Attempt to fix crash at boot for CM. Update FR and PL translations (thanks @Micks29 and @MPL92)
  • Feb 13, 2014 - 1.4.1 - Add PL translation (thanks @MPL92)
  • Feb 12, 2014 - 1.4 - Landscape (rotation) should be fixed. This includes custom wallpaper and see-through. Add PT-BR (thanks DigitalJosee) and FR translations (thanks @YoshiFrance)
  • Jan 27, 2014 - 1.3 - Add preference to set how "blurry" the image is. Applicable to custom image and see-through.
  • Jan 18, 2014 - 1.2 - Refactor a lot of code to be faster and more reliable - this should fix see through for most people now. Fix delay when turning screen off. Fix see through image persists through power cycle.
  • Jan 17, 2014 - New test build here. Please try and report back.
  • Jan 16, 2014 - 1.1 - Many fixes, hopefully it works more reliably now. Also fixed landscape see through.
  • Jan 16, 2014 - 1.0 - First release (please help me test it!)

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.

jfltevzw running cm11 if it matters

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

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
