From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen. Some methods are clearly more secure than others, but it comes down to user preference at the end of the day. So, which lockscreen security type do you prefer and why?
Android Loader v5.0 Final for HD2
We know there are many Android bootloaders for Windows Mobile devices, but this one presented by XDA moderator mskip has very interesting boot options. The final version of Android Loader shows features like the chance to auto-load Android even if it´s not located in the traditional folder, a Windows link to reboot directly to Android without any prompts, and the option to change the startup boot option.
Please be sure to read and understand how this application works before you proceed.

[APP] Android Loader v5.0 Final for HD2
There are numerous Android Bootloaders out there right now that will load Android before WindowsMobile boots up (into the screen) but this app is a bit special
For starters you can load Android easily once you are already using Windows. It comes with a cool looking icon so you can add it to Sense or Mobile Shell or whatever you use as your day to day interface.
On installation you can also set the Android Loader to ask you what you want to do as soon as WindowsMobile boots up. If you select ‘yes’ then everytime Windows boots up you can choose between loading Android or carrying on into Windows.
You will also be asked on installation to select the folder where your Android files are (no typing needed). This NEW feature means that when developers bring out Android Builds that arent in the standard ‘Android’ folder you can still auto load it without any problems.
You can find more information in the application thread.
