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

CyanogenMod 11.0 M2 for Over 65 Devices
Just under a month ago, the CyanogenMod team released CyanogenMod 11 Milestone 1. Unlike previous milestone builds, CM11 M1 was only for “actively AOSP-supported Nexus devices.” In other words, this meant that only the Google Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 7 (2013) could join in the fun. Thankfully, nightlies appeared for other devices the very next day—but these were nightlies rather than milestone releases.
Now, CyanogenMod 11 Milestone Release 2 is here, and this time, there are many, many more supported devices. In fact, according to the CyanogenMod Blog, builds are queued up for “over 65 devices,” with exactly 50 available at the time of publishing this article.
If you’re a CM user and you’ve been lusting after a milestone release, make your way over to the CyanogenMod Download Portal to get started. Then once you’ve downloaded your build and compatible Gapps package, make sure to head over to your device’s home in the XDA forums.
Are you going to load CM11 M2 on your device? Are you excited that non-Nexus devices can now join in on the fun? Leave us your thoughts in the comments below!
