    It would be similar to the way NGUI displays theme previews. Might actually be easy to adapt.

    Yea King, that's exactly where I got the idea! I made my own preview image for emitter and resized the one for badgen7 so they're all uniform. Would love to do the same for groovy lock themes. ImageUploadedByModMyi1393655638.991480.jpg

    I know that jake is focusing on NGUI more than GL, but I'll ask him anyway.

    so today was a bit boring... so I restored my i5s with 7.0.6
    and did NOT restore my settings, and configured my i5s as "new iphone".
    (did not use itunes to restore anything)

    installed everything.. and after 1h with groovylock and the "77 groovytheme" my i5s
    still crashes to safe mode, when passcode is activated.

    so a fresh restore does not solve the problem, just a deactivated passcode solve the problem

    Hi Blue, I did exactly the same as you a couple days back, I have SIMPLICIFY LS - For LockHTML & Groovylock and active passcode, no crash at all on mine...

    Hi guys, since apparently my tweets go further than I thought a lot of people have already downloaded GroovyLock which is a HTML LockScreen theming platform, you can switch between themes in the Settings app without the need to respring.

    It isn't on Cydia at the moment and there are several bugs that seems to be caused by conflicts, so I'm gonna try and talk through them all and why it's been so difficult to get a simple HTML LS platform for iOS 7.0. First of all I should mention that iOS 7.0's UIWebView class and JavaScript interpreter is pretty awful compared to iOS 6, Apple attempted to make a step forward but really took a step back - so some LockScreens simply don't work well any more and there's not much that can be done about that, I just recommend lying off the intense animations to prevent crashes.
    More information: to supplement this, Simon has informed me that using GroovyLock with 7.1b3 has significant performance improvements and no crashes, it seems logical to assume that the issues experienced in with the iOS 7.0 UIWebView will be stuck until 7.1 - at which point we can't confidently say there will be a jailbreak for it

    Another bug, that also seems to be an issue with iWidget, is that when WinterBoard themes with plists are active it some how breaks the UIWebView that loads local files - not entirely sure why or even have much information on this bug, it's purely speculation by me and @_Matchstic at the moment but be aware if your LS isn't running then chances are this is why - I'd suggest just disabling all WB themes first of all and then add them back on.

    Finally there seems to be issues with crashing on A7 devices, pretty sure it's if you check the 'Hold LS in memory' switch and something gets released from memory when it shouldn't



    So the download link is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/lpfklaaop4...GroovyLock.zip
    I update that link with the latest version, if I remove the link it's because it's unstable and causing people problems so just wait on more information if that happens.

    Usage
    Themes go into /User/Library/GroovyLock/ just as they would in winterboard, no need for the .theme on the folder but shouldn't make a difference really

    Then just go into Settings -> GroovyLock and switch on the theme you want, it'll appear in the LS when you lock the device.

    And just because pictures are pretty:




    The best support for this will come from those that have tested this for the last few days but please just post any issues in here if the above information does not resolve them, please don't directly message people asking for help as this thread is to aggregate all this information

    Changelog
    1.0.2
    WebView is transparent, unless otherwise dictated by the HTML loaded
    Fixed iPad landscape rotation
    Possibly fixed localStorage issue but iOS 7 is funny about this in terms of security
    Performance improvements

    1.0.1
    Fixed bug with spaces in theme folder names causing white screen
    Adding option to retain the LS in memory - this means that instead of it being release and regenerated when the device is locked it will stay in memory constantly, this may cause performance and battery drain issues, only recommend using this if there really is a need

    1.0.0 (On Cydia as 1.0.1 because I was hungover when I wrote that up)
    Initial release
    Hey I've been having an issue with Groovylock. there is a type of delay..


    say its 1:30. I set my 5S on 7.0.6 down. then at 1:35 I press a button to wake it, it will say 1:30 then quickly flash to 1:35.

    Is this normal?

    I'm working on a simple theme, but I'm curious, is it possible to support user interaction on these lockscreens? Like recognise a swipe gesture or tap?

    This is a great tweak, I finished my package for it about a week ago. Really easy to use and place your own themes in

    No, you would need lockhtml3 for that. Groovylock runs on the background layer so it won't slide with the slide to unlock.

    All those struggling with GroovyLock crashes are invited to test this 1.1 which should be far more stable and in theory support cycript, though this is untested.

    Thanks, Jake!! From lots of testing and observation these last 6 months - the vast majority of people's crashing, with 'any' Lockscreen player, EVEN Cydgets - was coming from how unstable iOS7, itself, + "any" Jailbreak (evasi0n or Pangu) makes WebView - when the Apple Passcode Lock is on. As soon as we turn off our Apple Passcode Locks -- stability is achieved by 99% of people using 'any' LS Player (GL, LH3, Cydgets, Convergence). With my Passcode Lock on - even Cydgets, formatted properly with a Background Layer (any animations) and a Homescreen Layer (weather info itself) will randomly crash all day..
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    Nice addition. Now maybe people will take the time to learn the benefits of cycript.



    Days of end users editing .js files over? Should be.

    Except this newer version of GL crashes just as much now -when Passcode lock is on and medium to high animation running- as the last version did. That's on my test phone ip5 with only GroovyLock and MobileSafety mobile substrates running.

    That really has nothing to do with what you quoted. If it has issues with passcode or animations. Either turn off passcode, or code the animations to be better on the device.

    There are both memory limits and Javascript execution time limits on Mobile Safari. They are limits not bugs. How to determine these (I think) are yet unknown, at least I cannot find documentation that explains in detail.

    I do know things that attribute to these issues. A few. -webkit-transform, translateZ, pages sizes, image size, and much more. It isn't a bug. It is just limits. With iOS7 these achieved very easily. I do not think there is anything that anyone (LS platform makers) can do about it. If you have a passcode, and you have something that runs animations. Then you have to choose one, or code these animations better.

    On LB I have an animation plugin deal. You can add any animation html. I tested this for many many hours/days. Coming up to the point if I added 10 more rain drops I could always cause a safemode with passcode set. Remove the 10 and run for days no safemode. Shows that it isn't cydget causing it. Clearly shows that it has to do with how things hit these limits.

    I am sure these tests can be done with GroovyLock and all the other LS Platforms. I dunno what GC did to make this somewhat 'better' than the previous version, but these limits are still the same. He more than likely just cleaned up code. I cannot say for sure, but thats about the best you can do. Unless he went all in and made it a springboard plugin, which is why Saurik praises Cydget the way he does.

    On your tests. Did you ever remove part of the animation? Did you cut out one cloud, maybe change how the transition between the animations happen? Many ways of doing this, wether coded with keyframes, translate, or even javascript. When I perform these test all these come into play. I am pretty sure you can take this animation that is causing the crash, and make it not crash by changing how it runs.
