    Title says it all. I've tried customels and hideme7 both remove the camera grabber but I can't access the camera from the lock screen. If this isn't possible?
    is there a way to put it in the cc or nc?
    Another thought was maybe deleting the camera grabber through ifile but not losing the function? I'm consider myself decent with ifile so with a little instruction I could probably figure it out.
    Anyway thanks for the help guys appreciate it. Glad to have my jailbreak on iOS thanks for any devs for the work you do. All is appreciate

    You can set up an activator action if nothing else works.

    If you already have Flex 2, it can do it. It's a 3$ or $4 tweak, so probably not worth it just for this. You might also be able to just replace the png file with a transparent png using iFile (that's what I did to get rid of the slide to unlock triangle).

    Springtomize 3 can remove the camera grabber from the lockscreen.

    Springtomize "removes" it making it not work. OP is looking for a way to "hide" and still be able to swipe up to use.

    I've tried cloaky, springtomize and a custom lockscreen and they all hid them but made them inoperable.

    You can use ifile but will need to replace image with a transparent one. If we can still do that in iOS 7...

    I think the poster above me is correct. LockHTML3 should do the trick.

    I'm pretty sure Flex 2 can accomplish this too.

    In iFile, browse to /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app. Look for camera-lockscreen png files. On my 5s, I have camera-lockscreen@2x.png. You can just rename that file and respring but I prefer to rename the original file and also upload a transparent png file with the original name. I don't know if that last step is really necessary, though.

    I know it can. I am using it to remove the camera grabber, NC and CC grabbers, slide to unlock text and chevron, make the status bar the same size as the home screen, add the time to the statusbar and turn off the lockscreen wall paper blur.

    My bad. I didn't even see your post. I apologize. I'm normally good about reading peoples posts before jumping in. I'm a huge flex fan. Really enjoying having it on iOS 7.

    As an aside, can you share with me how you hid the NC and CC grabbers on the lock screen? Been trying to figure these out since day 1! Haha and I refuse to download a tweak to hide them. I guess in my mind if I know flex can accomplish what I want, then I refuse to download an extra tweak unnecessarily. Thanks in advance!

    No apologies necessary. I don't always see everything that everyone has posted in a thread either.

    Springboard patch -> Springboard executable

    Hide camera grabber
    -(id) _cameraGrabberImage -> return value NULL

    Hide NC grabber
    setTopGrabberHidden -> arg #1 (bool) TRUE

    Hide CC grabber
    setBottomGrabberHidden -> arg #1 (bool) TRUE

    interesting small read if you have time: http://www.reddit.com/r/jailbreak/comments/1aprlt/question_which_is_better_for_usage_and_loading/

    long story short: cydiasubstrate is supposedly a tad bit more efficient than flex. still pretty cool you can kind of make your own tweaks

    i still haven't been sold on the functionality of flex 2 so haven't purchased or played around with it (had flex 2 beta installed but hardly touched it, if any :p)

    I think of Flex as a lightweight Cydia, definitely not an alternative, Cydia can do all the heavy lifting while Flex can do minor system/apps related tweaks with little to no hassle especially in terms of installing/uninstalling. Flex is a very clever idea though and i expect it to catch more exposure.
