Known issue under 4.2.2 with widgets disabled:
With the clock hack disabled, the clock widget toggles between the bold hour clock and the non-bold hour clock every other unlock.
If your device is rooted, you can use the clock hack to get the device to consistently display the non-bold hour clock. Otherwise, there isn't anything I can do for you immediately. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I had no control over this.
Meanwhile, there is a bug file for this to Google: http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=48164
1) Run application
2) Make selections, and press activate
3) In the 'Activate device administrator' screen, choose 'Activate'
4) Turn off undesired features using the toggle switches. Changes are made instantly. Make sure your lockscreen is enabled to see the results.
Clock Hack for Rooted devices only:
For users running Google firmware, you can now disable the bold-hour lockscreen clock with 'Clock Hack', accessible via the action bar menu even with widgets disabled in the lockscreen.
To undo or revert this, simply rerun 'Clock Hack'. You will additionally have to manually remove the clock widget and readd the desired one for changes to take effect if your lockscreen widgets are on. Note that this setting persists even if you deactivate or uninstall this application. (Can take a couple of screen locks/unlocks to take effect)
There are several downsides to using this hack. You will also lose access to the same widget from your homescreen. This alternate clock also will not launch the alarm app on click, nor does it display your world clocks.
To uninstall, uncheck the application from the 'Device Administrator' list under 'Security' in your 'Settings' application on your device.
Caveats when disabling widgets:
Enabling this will force the lockscreen to use a 'default fallback widget'. On Google builds, the default is the stock DeskClock digital clock widget (with bold-hour style). This behavior cannot be changed.
The bold hour clock only affects official Google builds, and is part of Google's proprietary firmware.
The rooted method implements the following method from XDA,
The music controls will still appear as a new page when active, even with the lockscreen policies in place. Google would have to update the API to control that.
I do not collect any personal information with this completely free application.
No permissions other than device administrator required.
Allowing widgets and/or camera access might be a security concern for some users, because they can be accessed before unlocking the device. This application is a workaround for that, at the cost of removing those features.
This application maintains device administration policies for the lockscreen, introduced in Android 4.2.
I did not create this functionality by myself. Google already provisioned the API to make this possible. However, the only way to use this was to write an app for it, as I had done.
