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?
ClockworkMod Touch for the International Galaxy S III
The Samsung Galaxy S III, successor to the popular Galaxy S II, now has an official ClockworkMod Touch recovery. And now thanks to XDA Senior Moderator and Recognized Developer mskip, it is flashable via Odin and Elite Recognized Developer Chainfire‘s Mobile Odin. If the name mskip sounds familiar to you, it’s because he also developed both the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Nexus Toolkits, all while pwning noobs around the forums.
This recovery has all the features you would expect in a normal recovery, with the obvious addition of touch functionality. As mentioned earlier, it can be installed through Odin or Mobile Odin. However, this release is only compatible with the international GSM edition. Those with other SGS3 variants will likely have to wait a little longer.
You can find the download and instructions in the original thread.
