From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen.

Beats Audio Hacked Onto Photon 4G
Many people love Beats Audio because of Android’s lack of a built-in equalizer, and it can be said that some Android phones need Beats Audio to deliver a music experience that isn’t so, for lack of a better word, bland. While certainly not for everyone, Beats Audio has cultivated a following from various users.
XDA Forum Member willblake13 has ported Beats Audio to the Motorola Photon 4G. The modification itself consists of the Beats Audio libraries that were pulled from XDA Senior Member RockoDev‘s ROM, which already included the software itself. The mod has been successfully tested on specific versions of CyanogenMod 7 and CyanogenMod 9. Installation of the recovery-flashable update.zip is simple. Just place on the SD card, reboot into recovery, flash, reboot and profit.
For those who want to give it a shot, you can find the download link and discussion in the original thread. Be sure to make a backup before flashing, just in case something goes wrong!
