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

Nexus 10 Rooting Tutorials for Windows, Mac, and Linux
While some may have a problem understanding why we would want to do so, the Nexus 4 was rooted in short order. With the whirlwind of Nexus 4 news, it’s easy for some to forget there was a second Nexus device released. The Samsung-made Nexus 10 was released as well. And just as you would expect, it already has root.
XDA Senior Member zedomax has released a series of videos to help get users rooted. There is one video for each supported operating system. As it so happens, all of the big three are supported. So users can root whether they’re running Windows, Mac, or Linux. Included also are step by step tutorials with pictures.
To make things a little easier, all the needed files come in a single zip file. So it doesn’t matter which tutorial you need to follow, all the tools are in a single spot. Just download the zip, unpack the files, and follow of the tutorials to get rooted with a custom recovery. In addition, zedomax has posted a short FAQ video for those who experience bootloops after unlocking the bootloader. Users have reported that the tutorials work well, and so far there have been no major problems.
For all the tutorial videos and download links, check out the original thread.
