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?
Port-A-Droid Makes Running and Testing Android Builds a Breeze
The now aging HTC HD2 is still considered by many to be one of the best devices to come out from HTC. Its incomparable versatility (thanks to the efforts of countless people) allows a user to switch between most widely used OS systems including its native Windows Mobile, Android, Windows Phone 7, Ubuntu, MeeGo, and more. On top of that, in order to run Android you have several different methods of accomplishing this task, and one of them is by running from NAND, which basically completely wipes out Windows Mobile from your system. XDA member boonbing has put together a series of scripts based on the work of many people including XDA member DarkStone1337 and his work on RAM roms. In essence, Port-A-Droid will allow users to use, test, and replace Gingerbread roms that should be install on NAND, but that will load from the SD card and run via RAM. In essence, you will get the full NAND experience by still keeping your Windows Mobile OS completely intact. This is a very versatile tool that will provide any user with the means to run everything they want without the hassle that normally goes attached to it.
Please leave some feedback for the dev if you liked this tool.
