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?
HTC Desire S ROM Ported to Nexus One
XDA member abhi0n0nakul told us about a HTC Desire S ROM being ported to the Nexus One. So, if you have this Android device, now you have the chance to try a newer Gingerbread based ROM. The latest version includes HTC Sense, Locations, WIFI, GPS, overclocking tool for up to 1113 Mhz, and the newest Market, all working well. According to the original poster, you will need latest radio: 5.12, latest hboot: 35.0017, sd-ext: 1gb, recovery: amon ra passion and to wipe all data in order to successfully install.
As work is still in process, there are some things not working yet, such as:
1. Camera and camcorder (causes reboot)
3. FM radio
4. Video player (though gallery works great)
5. Few graphical glitches.
6. Problems with status bar
7. USB mass storage
8. Charging led does not glow while charge
9. MMS problems
If you still want to try it, it´s advised that you know what are you doing. As always, the developers take no responsibility if you brick your device. Please leave your feedback, so future versions can be improved.
