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

Thank You for Making the BABBQ Device Museum a Success
For those of you who didn’t make it to the Big Android BBQ 2012, we had our traditional signature banner at the XDA booth. However, this year, we decided to have something new: a device museum!
The idea was born to give new uers a “blast from the past,” in the words of XDA TV Producer azrienoch. Various XDA members sent us their old devices, dating as far back as the Motorola Startac from 1989, and including legendary devices such as the HTC Blue Angel, HTC Universal, HTC G1, and some very early Samsung devices. Elite Recognized Developer Adam Outler contributed as well with his personal ADK 2012, which was given to him by our Portal Administrator Will Verduzco after attending Google I/O 2012. Adam also contributed a device that I call The Magic Box, as it was able to root many devices in less than 3 minutes!
