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?
CyanogenMod 10 Alpha 1 for the Motorola Droid X2
A few months ago, we saw the Droid X2 receive an almost fully functional CM9. Now the Droid X2 is getting some more love with CyanogenMod 10. The ROM is currently in alpha 1, and as you may have guessed, XDA Recognized Developer dragonzkiller is the developer. The same person who brought both CM7 and CM9 to the Droid X2 now brings you CM10, which is stable enough to be used as a daily driver. The impressive working list is:
- Google Now
- Audio System
- Camera (with some issues)
After reading that list, you may be asking yourself “what doesn’t work?”. That’s what is great about this alpha 1 release, you will find very few issues. For example, some ICS/JB apps will crash, the camera has some issues, and there are a few stability issues. But for the most part, it is very usable.
