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?
New TF300T Unlock and Root Guide Unifies All the Others
As device development continues on, there are more methods and guides to achieve all sorts of things. This includes new root guides for new firmwares, new recoveries as they get updates, and all sorts of other things. Thus, when searching for a guide to do something, users may be looking at an older, obsolete method. For ASUS Transformer TF300T owners, there is now such a new guide.
XDA Forum Member andoryuu3 wrote an all encompassing guide for people who may be getting a brand new Transformer TF300T for Christmas. The guide is pieced together from a number of methods found in a number of places. As androryuu3 explains:
Having recently purchased a TF300T with intent to customize the hell out of it, I ran into a big problem. There wasn’t one definitive guide for my general case, some of the steps I read weren’t completely clear, and I often had to put pieces together from multiple guides to get where I wanted. Halfway through the process it occurred to me that sharing my experience in form of a guide could give the community something I wish that I had when I began.
The process covers unlocking the latest bootloader, rooting the latest firmware, installing the latest recovery, and flashing the latest ROMs. If you just received your TF300T, or you’re about to get one, this is a guide you’ll want to see.
