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?
CM9 Nightly Builds For Samsung Galaxy S (i9000 & i9000b)
While a pretty sizeable number of devices have already been graced with nightly versions of CM9, that list just keeps on getting bigger. It seems that at some point yesterday the first nightly builds for the original Samsung Galaxy S (i9000 & i9000b) made an appearance on the CM download page.
I suspect that these nightly builds will be much sought after by a great deal of Galaxy S users. Although a semi-functional alpha version for the i9000 has been available for a while, it really was just that. There were a great deal of rather major issues still unresolved and these alpha builds hadn’t seen an update since November last year. This is also the first time that we’ve seen a version of CM9 for the i9000b.
Galaxy S users will surely be hoping that the appearance of these two new builds signals the start of regular nightly builds with much increased functionality. Unfortunately it’s a little difficult to tell which of these outstanding issues has been fixed in the new versions as there are currently no official statements on these two new builds as of yet from either the CM site or their Google+ profile.
If you are the owner of either an i9000 or the regional variant the i9000b and can’t wait to get your hands on these before a changelog appears then you can find these new nightly’s here on the CM download page.
