01-29-2014, 03:15 PM #14224So what, again, is so bad with Cydgets?
We're at a bit of a crossroads, gang, with desiring the best LS tweak to work with. Though I've also been in the camp that hasn't liked Cydgets in the past, when I asked myself 'why not'.. I had a hard time remembering why not. Part of it was only having seen a few things Ras had put together, the graphical interfaces of which weren't that sleek looking. Ras himself admits he's no artist. Then I thought it was clunky to learn - but no different than any other tweak.
Until today I did not know that Cydget is a Saurik's 'design' and preferred tweak (over Winterboard) within which to run HTML on Lockscreens. Cydget is way more versatile than either GroovyLock or LockHTML3 at this point - except for LockHTML3's widget movement tool is kinda cool.
What I'm getting at - is that as of Saurik's update this morning to Winterboard he also also repaired WebKit Transform issues in Cydget and as a result it's the only LockScreen player now that is stable for me with high animations. The slightest level of animation you add to GroovyLock or LockHTML3 and crash city. Since Saurik seems pretty slow and not motivated to make WB itself do HTML - and he HAS fixed Cydget to run our old animated locks STABLE - don't you think we should give it a 2nd chance?
A LockScreen Widget in Cydget looks 100% identical to me as in GL or LH3. Yes, there's a slight code change you have to make to make your old locks work in Cydget. A Pain.. But stability, gang.
What are some of you other LS creators issues with Cydget - CURRENTLY. Have you tried it recently?
For what it's worth, Ian. I have iWidgets and Cydgets and no crashing with both together. So something else is causing your issue.
I do know when you uninstall GroovyLock and LockHTML3 - they leave behind a bunch of stuff. Run iCleanerPro with Remove Ununsed dependencies also checked with the other stuff automatically checked. Also check the var/mobile/Library/Preferences folder to see if anything in there bears the name GroovyLock or LockHTML3 and trash those prefs..
I would just like to dialogue about what we might have against the only HTML Stable LS player that Saurik supports.
GrantHere to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

There was a .plist for Groovylock and also LockHTML in the preferences folder that NewD suggested above. I removed them, ran iCleaner Pro with unsuded Dependencies checked off. I am running the UNIAW 6.4 cydget and its ok as of now. I have some hope... I always liked Cydgets. Its a cool concept, And they are easy to convert lockscreens to. Especially the end users like myself.

Grant you're confused about what was "fixed" with webkit
The issue was locks and widgets using webkit animation and having an Info.plist running in Winterboard where certain info would not show up properly that used webkit whether a simple fade in element or other.
The fix was so you could still use an Info.plist in Winterboard and it wouldn't cause elements that used webkit to not display.
It was not a fix to webkit animation as a whole regardless of what lockscreen enabling tweak you are using.
I think what confuses you is Saurik adding Cydget Webkit Transform in the changelog
Saurik did not mean it's only fixed if you use Cydget. It just means he wouldn't put in GroovyLock or LockHTML3 in the changelog because they are not his packages.

Sigh. Grant, did you read my post to you in MJs thread:
Saurik has not magically fixed webview issues on iOS 7. Cydgets seems more stable to you for one reason, it doesn't run when screen is off. Less run time means less crashes. Turn off lockscreen dim and leave two phones running same animation intensive widget, one in cydget and one in lockhtml and I'd bet money they both crash at similar times. It's a nice plus for cydgets. Less running means less crashes and less battery use. But it's also the source of the biggest negative in my books. Try and run anything that requires more than a simple image loading on screen (eg uniaw) and every time that screen goes off it's gonna take a few seconds to load.
Please Grant stop jumping to conclusions and proclaiming things. You've been back and forth all day doing it.

I still crash with Cydgets. Been trying all day. Just crashed 5 minutes ago. That and the fact that the UNIAW mods with on screen menus (even though touch funtionality works) are not allowing me (and Id have to assume others as well) to select an option on the menu as the screen shifts to the right slightly like its trying to get to the unlock screen. I have tried Martys cydget and the 6.4 cydget both with animations. There is no stable tweak to apply HTML lockscreens without crashing. Ill accept it and enjoy iwidgets on my springboard.

Not entirely true Seth
You need a minimal lockscreen running.
I've been running mine for days now (In GroovyLock) with no crash at all.
Also doesn't have an issue in Cydget.
LockHTML3 I've uninstalled so I can't tell you what/how well or not it works.
01-29-2014, 04:08 PM #14232
Same here. I have MJSmash Cydget on my LS and crashes.
I uninstalled groovy lock and lockhtml and ran I cleaner Pro and still crashes.
Love the LS Cydget but can't handle the constant crashes.

Yes Durben I stand corrected...Minimal Lockscreens are ok through Cydgets and were fine with LockHTML3 for that matter for me. I meant Animated Lockscreens.
**Although through my experience I can tell you minimal Locks with very intensive iwidgets also cause me to crash at times.
The only time Im fine is no animation anywhere across my device or a minimal lock with **maybe** 1 animated iwidget. But Im only speaking about my experience in this case

Now the fade in fade out lessening action seems like a great plan B.. Just like we had to get rid of Spin & Flip in iOS 6.. Sounds like a great plan to get GroovyLock and LockHTML3 back in the game with higher animation.
But no one's really answering my question, Simon. What's wrong with Cydgets?

To run Cydgets.....do we also need to d/l LOCKHTML3 too? To make it stable
