This is a guide to make your Lockscreen be like the S6 one (only aesthetically speaking)
Procedure is written for Galaxy S4 but should work fine also for N3 and S5. For Note 4 folder have a different name but once you'll find them, it works also on N4.

2. Unpack my zip and decompile your SystemUI.apk with apktool
3. Go to res/drawable-xxhdpi and copy here all PNGs in my zip/drawable-xxhdpi
4. Go to res/drawable-sw360dp-xxhdpi and copy here all PNGs in my zip/drawable-sw360dp-xxhdpi
5. Recompile
6. Put in your system/priv-app with correct permissions and reboot
7. If you want to enable dialer shortcut you need to enable a secure lockscreen like pattern --->

Great job Albe95, how do I enable the phone shortcut?
If I follow your instructions the dialer is only for emergency, I am looking for s6 functionality where you can open the dialer not just for emergencies and without lockscreen pattern.
Thank you

Albe how did you put the lockscreen centered?
if u want centered clock,owner, weather etc. you must be edit some .xml files in SystemUi.apk

    To hide pattern lock circle just overwrite the PNGs on drawable-xxxhdpi with this one https://mega.co.nz/#F!iMBC2L7A!0i6nAlyjF9y90PsVLKzSTw

    To bypass pattern unlock go to data/system/gesture.key then uncheck all permissions then save. DO NOT DELETE gesture.key?

    Yes, I placed it in homescreen and works perfectly but doesn't appear in lockscreen!!
    I think there is a line or file need to modify to show weather in lockscreen. Any idea ?
    Man!!!
    Listen please!!
    place the widget in homescreen,
    Then tap on the widget, and tap the top button to go to city list and then delete your city and then find your city just by using Locations/GPS and Don't search your city by writing your city name!!!

    Then go to setting - My device Tab - Lockscreen
    and got to Additional information and check all the boxes, and be sure that the Additional information is ON!
