Camera Grabber: iOS 5.1 style Lockscreen Camera Icon
Released today, this tweak (from @cjori, the developer of other great tweaks like Flowtation, Custom NC Background, and Aloud) give pre-iOS 5.1 devices the same lockscreen camera access that updated devices enjoy. It's free and it works well, placing an always available camera icon on the lockscreen that allows you to slide up to reveal the camera interface--check it out!
One note: if you keep your Slide to Unlock text hidden, this tweak will reintroduce it (see below). I believe the dev is working on an update for that, but that could be a deal breaker for themers.

(...and since then he mentioned having some sort of a tech crash that will put all his tweak updates on hold for a few days...but it could be coming!)

also, are your DM's turned off on Twitter?
No ETA that I saw, but I'd guess soon.
My DMs should be on but I have noticed some weirdness lately on my laptop--my phone shows a ton of back and forth, but the website only has a single message from all that history...(just sent you one btw)

The update for this tweak came out today---works great! Adds the ability to pull down the lockscreen again when you're done with the camera, and no longer adds the Slide to Unlock text back if you have it hidden. Working perfectly for me!
As an aside: if you haven't checked out @cjori's other tweaks, do yourself a favor and take a look. He's really one of the more talented devs out there. I'm especially digging the map integration he built into Aloud (a tweak that announces your notifications, incoming calls, etc). With the map feature turned on, you can get your directions read aloud to you in the native maps app. Such a life saver while driving.

anyone using this with ISX? after using the camera from the lockscreen i will swipe down but ISX will temporarily come down with it then pop up and away. so you have to swipe down again for ISX to be visible otherwise the stock LS will only be showing
just making sure i'm not missing something here..
