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

HTC Huashan Gingerbread Dump With Sense!
Wait… what? It looks like something rather interesting has surfaced in our little world. For those of you not aware, the HTC HuaShan is the Chinese version of the incredibly versatile HD2. Nothing too surprising so far. However, according to XDA members TMartin03 and 911sniper, an update for the device has surfaced. The update consists of Gingerbread (Android 2.3), running the latest installment of Sense, which is currently unavailable for most devices. Looks like the good people at HTC have taken a hint about Android being fully compatible with the HD2 and decided to give HD2’s Chinese brother an official taste of Android. There are ongoing efforts in many device fora to port this rom for other devices including the HTC EVO 4G, which has the added twist of being a CDMA device.
The rom is only for devs to port at this point. Please do not attempt to flash this to your device or you will likely brick it. Instead, please either wait for a release or help with development if you have the know how.
