Increase Locksreen Pattern Grid (up to 6x6) with CyanLock

Security is one of the most important things, especially when talking about phones. Thieves are getting smarter and smarter and can even guess your password. Lockscreen pattern is one of the most used security locks on Android. Unfortunately, the patterns that people choose are getting more and more used-up and it's easirer to guess them. But what if the grid is 6x6?

The standart lockscreen pattern grid on Android is 4x4. That's 16 dots to be connected. A bunch of options, though, but nobody will probably choose the one that takes half a minute to draw. People are getting lazier and so their patterns. But what if you got a 6x6 grid? Now that's security.

For usual ROM-changers, it's not any special - most of the custom ROMs like CyanogenMod or any other ROM has already implemented this tweak to their systems but for some people (especially for people using stock Android) is still this feature brand new.

This mod is a xposed module, so you will have to install Xposed Framework first. (Check HERE).

While installed, go to modules section and download the module called CyanLock. After installing, reboot.
To get this 6x6 pattern grid, simply go to settings -> security and choose the one you want to use.

You have a few options: 3x3, 4x4, 5x5 and 6x6. To uninstall this module, go back to Xposed Framework and remove the module.
