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

CWM and De-Odexed System Partition for the LG Nitro HD
Not too long ago, we added the LG Nitro HD to our forums. This was done with good reason, as LG’s LTE-enabled, 720p-capable, and dual core-toting beast is one of the most appetizing devices available for AT&T—at least until the Galaxy Nexus (possibly) arrives for the carrier. Now, all we need is some development activity to back up the great hardware.
Kicking open the doors for development activity, XDA forum member bytecode64 successfully ported ClockworkMod 5 Recovery to the device. Next, the Nitro HD had its /system partition de-odexed thanks to XDA forum member kernelpan1c, making it easier for ROM developers and themers to create the modifications they do best.
What’s next for the LG Nitro HD? That’s for you, the development community, to figure out!
