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?
Build CM10, AOKP, and TeamBaked for the Transformer Prime
Quality, source-built ROMs can transform devices ordinarily held back by manufacturer limitations. When CyanogenMod or AOKP are released for a device, pretty much everyone is happy about it. Of course, a lot of work goes into building such ROMs, and developers often provide guides on how to do it. Now, ASUS Transformer Prime users have a tutorial to build not one, but three AOSP-based ROMs thanks to XDA Senior Member craigacgomez.
Included in the tutorial are instructions for building CyanogenMod 10, AOKP, and TeamBaked AOSP ROMs. The tutorials are written for Ubuntu 12.04, so if you’re not running Ubuntu or a distro based on Ubuntu, then this tutorial isn’t going to work very well. The guide also outlines all the packages users will need installed, how to download the source for all three ROMs, and, of course building.
In addition to the basic build instructions, craigacgomez has included a mod or two to make sure the builds work properly. Users and developers who build AOSP often likely won’t learn anything new following the tutorial. However, if you have a Transformer Prime and are new at building from source, this is an excellent guide to use as a starting point.
