    Not sure what I did today (on 1st full day on JB), but something had me change to PIN access, but now when I go to the screen lock choices, "NONE", "Slide" and Face recognition are greyed out with no opportunity to enable.

    Anyone have a solution or know what I might have done?

    Go into security then down to clear credentials and then it should let you do none or slide. That happened to me on my droid 4 and bionic when using foxfi

    Does FoxFi still work after doing that on the Bionic with Jelly Bean?

    Yes but every time you have to set password up and if you wanna get rid of password you have to clear credentials each time

    Edit foxfi requires it done like that now but at least it works on my droid 4 I had no foxfi after jb update for like 2 weeks

    I don't care for a screen password, whether slide or pin, because no one uses my device other than me. It's on my person until I plug it in at night. Guess this is a small inconvenience to continue to use Foxfi.
