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?
Old But Not Dead – Rhodium And Raphael Get Complete Froyo Ports
It looks like this has been some week for Windows Mobile devices in terms of getting back on the spot light. Just as you were thinking about going back to Android goodness on your Sensation, members that have been here for 2 years or more will certainly realize that this is indeed a piece of good news, good enough to unbury your old Raphael and your not-so-old Rhodium. It looks like XDA member arrrghhh and his team have finished adding the final touches to their Froyo ports for both aforemention devices. The porting projects of Android onto Windows Mobile devices is nothing short of a fantastic proof of how far our devs can go if they put their minds on things. In this case, the dev states that this port can be used as a daily as it is feature rich and stable to get you through your day without missing anything. There are a few bugs still remaining on them, but as with any port, these are expected. However, wifi, sound, camera, screen, and everything else seems to be working quite well. One thing to note is that the CDMA versions are under heavier investigation, so if you have a Herman or a Rhodium from either Sprint or Verizon, make sure that you read all the release notes.
If you still have either a Rhodium and/or a Raphael and would like to take this for a spin, please do so and leave any and all feedback that you can.
I have created a complete bundle of FroYo with a stable kernel from GIT (July 16 / 1340), and rootfs from GIT (July 15).
