Still no crashes with passlock off. Maybe it has something to do with the fingerprint activation.

Edited--- I just did some new testing.. And I too, with passcode lock on - and high animation LS running in GroovyLock will crash after about 10 min. With low animation on LS no crash - even with passcode lock on.
Passcode lock off and I get no crashing at all with any level of animation running in GroovyLock.
So it's that darn WebView bug in 7.0.4 that's giving us headache.

i also had a lot of crashes, updated today from 7.04 to 7.05 before crashes with passcode on and off, after update still some crashes with passcode on, wil try over the next days to see if passcode off helps.
the bug is in IOS7 ? i doent think it has anything to do with any tweeks.
apple will fix it in 7.1 but jailbreak looking not so good for 7.1.
so i hope someone can make a fix that works without a update from apple

There is a bug with something called WebView in iOS7.0.4 and 7.0.5 - that affects whether or not the phone can handle high animation on the Lockscreen. So this has been true for a long time. We had a lot of random crashing with Lockscreens after the jailbreak that had to do with leftover bad files from early tweaks that weren't updated well. So that was causing crashing ALL THE TIME with Lockscreens with high animation and even with Passcode Lock OFF. A simple Restore cleared that up for those who did. But the WebView bug still exists. And the final 'trigger' for it make our phones crash (if we don't have other bad files or tweak conflicts) is when passcode lock is on. This triggers the crash with high animation lockscreens for most people in GroovyLock and LockHTML. LockHTML has solved many issues and I can put my passcodeLock on now with a high animation LS in LockHTML3 and no crashes. But GroovyLock hasn't been updated for a long time and is still 'very touchy' with passcode lock on.
The only one that has no issues from Passcode is Cydgets.
So hopefully Jake will update GroovyLock eventually to get it more stable. In the mean time you can run all GroovyLock Lockscreens in LockHTML3. Though LockHTML3 isn't free.
But 7.0.5 doesn't clean up the WebView bug. Sadly - 7.1 does. And we don't have a jailbreak for 7.1 and likely won't get one.Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

Another 24hs gone.... Still no Crash without passcode. Works now perfect without passcode. ( and we had a lot of rain in Germany the last few days ;-) so a lot of animation)
I did test lockhtml3 with passcode and it crashes ...
So back to groovylock ... Then we have to use it without passcode, till there will be a fix, or a jailbreakable ios7.1
I do not restore my i5s just for a tweak. (that will maybe work after restore)
I disable the passcode and all is fine

BUT if after a restore to get rid of old unstable junk - you need to run passcode lock on - for your job - then all you need to do in LockHTML3 is is go into Widget Position and change it to BACKGROUND. Then it will run 'essentially' like Groovy Lock does. And crashing will be practically gone with passcode lock on -- and totally gone with passcode lock off.Here to help if I can.

Wow. You all are good and I have proof (in case anyone doubts!) I don't comment much here but try to read frequently. You all did a fantastic job helping me figure out how to get my iOS 6 JB set up with UNIAW 6 thread, tweaked it, mod'd it, made me feel like I knew what I was doing. Life was good....
Along comes SSL bug and I felt the need to upgrade to iOS 7.0.6. Maybe I didn't need to, but I did. I travel a lot and am on WiFi networks alot (now in fact). I read through the UNIAW thread, WW thread, and this one. It's been a few days reading, re-reading, digging, and about a thousand resprings, but once again the generous gift of your knowledge has allowed me to mod my phone with an animated lock screen!
I will be making some donations as soon as this thank you goes through. I truly appreciate all you guys and gals share!

Hey Groovy, been rocking this for awhile and adding new groovylocks to my collection, such a sick tweak. I have a bunch now and its damn near impossible to remember what each one looks like... Is there anyway to get a small preview image next to each one in the "theme" list menu under groovylock settings??? I have no problem making my own and sharing them, I just wanted to know if its possible.Ode to Jailbreaking - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYPqpLdkhOA
