We show that for a class of $C^2$ quasiperiodic potentials and for any fixed \emph{Diophantine} frequency, the Lyapunov exponents of the corresponding Schr\"odinger cocycles are uniformly positive and weakly H\"older continuous as function of energies. Moreover, we show that the spectrum is Cantor. Our approach is of purely dynamical systems, which depends on a detailed analysis of asymptotic stable and unstable directions. We also apply it to general quasiperiodic $\mathrm{SL}(2,\R)$ cocycles.
