    If you're on iOS 7, but you prefer the iOS 6-style Lock Screen, you can now check out a new jailbreak tweak called ClassicLockScreen by iOS developer CoolStar.

    ClassicLockScreen will give even iOS 7 users a Lock Screen that partially resembles the iOS 6 Lock Screen, as shown above.

    The tweak changes the Lock Screen interface around a little bit, re-adding the slider bar, the glass effect, and the dark Status Bar. The tweak also supports the iOS 6-style 4-digit passcode entering interface, the iOS 6-style Lock Screen music interface, the iOS 6-style Lock Screen notifications, and much more.

    The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can adjust a few options:



    You will be able to enable or disable the tweak on demand, enable or disable the Lock Screen camera grabber, and enable or disable having the seconds appear in the Lock Screen clock. There is also a respring button that you'll want to tap on whenever you make changes in order to save them.

    If you would like to cure your iOS 6 Lock Screen nostalgia, ClassicLockScreen is a decent way of doing that. It's not perfect, but it helps re-create the experience pretty well. If you would like to give the tweak a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository for 99.

    The tweak currently only works with the iPhone or iPod touch and is not yet compatible with the iPad.

    Name: ClassicLockScreen
    Price: 99
    Version: 1.0-2
    Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.6
    Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 7.0.6
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: CoolStar

    My GF had trouble with it on her iPhone 5S as well.
    It works flawlessly on my iPhone 5 though.
    Might have something to do with Touch-ID? Just throwing that out there..

    So we upgrade to iOS 7 to install tweaks to look like iOS 6, interesting.

    I, like many others, dislike some of the features of ios 6. So I was very happy when the tweak came out. I love the easy feel flow of ios 6, not the sharp edge, harsh color of ios 7. If you wish to not have a ios 6 lock screen mimick tweak, then don't download.

    Enjoy

    Dislike ios 7***

    Excuse me there.

    Does it give the ability to double tap the home button to start your music. I truly miss that. Pain in the butt to open the music app and start it. Especially while driving

    Another iOS 6 Lockscreen feature that I really miss is the Picture Frame button (iPad only). It was a great way to start a slideshow and far easier than muddling through the iOS 7 layers of nonsense needed to start a simple photo Slideshow. Coolstar could you add that back? Thanks!

    I'm wondering the answer to this question as well. I used that trick quite a bit while out and about (although now I might be able to do this from my Pebble).

    This just looks awful compared to the iOS 7 lock screen. I don't understand why anyone would want to go back to this...but I appreciate the developer's efforts to bring it to them.

    But, dang, the lock screen just looks so much better on 7!!!

    Like the idea of iOS 7 lock screen since u can slide anywhere to open vs sliding the slide to open button.

    The problem is it covers your lockscreen theme. Wondering if there is a way around that.

    Why not just hit play in Control Center?

    Lol. I always forget about that. It's hard to teach an old dog new tricks.

    What's nice is you can theme the ls in wb with nice themes like tenuitas and metal slider.
