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 Rezound Auto Unlocker Makes Unlocking Faster and Easier
While it is very convenient to be able to unlock any HTC device on the HTCdev.com website, it is still quite a difficult task for some who either just can’t get it to work right or aren’t as Android savvy as they’d like to be. It is for these people that most developers will create an auto-unlock or auto-root tool. So even those who don’t have the time to learn Android can share in the rooted magic.
XDA Forum Member fenguepay has done just this with an auto unlocker tool for the HTC Rezound. The tool, once run, will automatically unlock the bootloader, giving users the ability to flash ROMs, flash tweaks, and any number of other things. The tool itself is still in beta mode, so don’t be surprised if there are a few bugs. As fenguepay says:
It is only v1.x so it is sure to have some errors.
If you find any, post them here If i don’t respond to them then PM me.
I will try to find and fix as fast as possible.
So do know that if you run into an error and report it, fenguepay is on it and will try to get it fixed. Currently, the bugs for the application aren’t extensive, and recent versions are much more stable and streamlined than the earlier versions. So even as a beta, users can be confident that this won’t damage their phone permanently.
