    Default How to get camera / google now on lock screen?

    Hey guys,

    How do you get the camera and google now on the lock screen so that is looks this this? (sorry for the huge image) I know how to get to the different widgets/pages but I'd really like to be able to just swipe up to get to google now. Mine currently just unlocks no matter which way you swipe.

    The only way would be to unlock, root, and install a custom rom that has those features.

    Oooh err, seems very complicated, I think I'll just stick to my current lock screen then. Thanks for the speedy response though!

    That picture is 4.1. On 4.2 the dotted circle will pull up Now and swiping from the right will bring the camera.

    why would you not get a Nexus device?

    Try widget locker or active screen lock from the play store. Both allow you to customize your lock screen without rooting or ROMS.

    Oh, I see. Thanks! I do actually have a Nexus device, I just got it. I was watching some jellybean tutorials and didn't realise that this changed with 4.2. Oops!
