Question Nexus 7 lockscreen clock can I change it now I have Android 4.2?

I have just downloaded Android 4.2 to my Nexus 7.

The clock on the lockscreen seems to look different now Is it possible to change it back to the old one?

Have found the swype keyboard which I like Are there any other basic changs I should try out as a newbie?

Unless there's more to it, I've only been able to choose from 4 different widgets for the lockscreen widgets (digital clock, calendar, gmail, sound search?). And that digital clock IS awkward looking. The first hour is bold typed yet the rest is not?

May have to wait for custom rom to do this. One I'm using on my gnex has lots of lockscreen customizations. Like you, I can't wait to get rid of that ugly clock.

Settings > Security > Screen lock > choose none. I just don't like a lock screen and I do think the clock is ugly. A lock screen is worthless unless you have an actual lock on it via a pin or pattern code, and having it really locked is a major inconvenience if you are in and out of your N7 frequently.

I have HD widgets - how do you get this on the lockscreen? I don't see it in the widgets menu. Would love this instead of the new lockscreen.

just figured it out.. if you have more than one account on your tablet then you can't disable lock screen - so you can always switch between the users.. not something i've been looking for..

I'm curious, would a lock screen replacement program like Widgetlocker work in place of the 4.2 lock screen? If you don't find what your looking for, then this might be an alternative...

I don't really want anything on my lock screen except the keypad to enter my pin. Is it possible to simply get rid of the ugly new default clock? I can't get rid of it except by replacing with one or two other unwanted widgets.

"Fixed Clock" at least gets rid of the bold hours.

I've got plenty of lovely widgets but still have a problem. How do I actually get then onto the Lock Screen. Obviously it's not possible to drag onto this screen. I can't spot any setting to let me do it. Am I missing something VERY obvious??

Yes :-) On the lock screen swipe left in the top half of the screen and press the plus icon.

I'm currently using HD Widgets. It has a lockscreen clock you can use instead of the stock clock.

You can use Ultimate Custom Widget (UCCW) on the lock screen. I wish you could just turn off the bold on that digital clock. CM has settings for it.
