Easy Add KitKat-Like Lock Screen Music Controls to Your Favorite Jellybean ROM

KitKat brought lots of eye candy to Android. Some of these changes came in the form of different wallpapers, different transparency on the status bar, and tweaks to lock screen album art during music playback. The revised lock screen music widget looks great. And now users who happen to still be on Jelly Bean can have a taste as well, thanks to a crafty Xposed Framework module. Yesterday we talked about an Xposed module that allows you to control your music playback using your device’s hardware buttons. Combined with today’s KitKat Music Lockscreen module, you can now show your favorite music application some love.

The KitKat Music Lockscreen module was created by XDA Forum Member prithvee, who adjusted Jelly Bean lock screen widget to look like the revised one found in KitKat. This module brings the feature of displaying Album/Cover art of currently playing music/song on lockscreen from KitKat to Jelly Bean (4.2+). With this module, you can easily change between the old and new styles with only a few clicks. This module should be compatible with all devices running Android 4.2 or greater. The only requirement is to have Xposed Framework installed.

To beautify your lock screen music widget, make your way over to the module thread.
