So I'm used to the asop lock screen in which I can have a pattern lock on it to keep my friends from messing with my phone. With this one it just means they're going to try 11 times and wipe my phone.

Or if my cousins kids grab it and want to use the pattern lock as a game it will get wiped. (seriously anything like that is a game for a 5 year old).

I'm amazed they still didn't add a way too sense to disable that bit of the lock screen. I just want a password. I don't want it to wipe itself at all...

Once we get root,

Edit this file:
change this:
  <item type="integer" name="devicepolicy_max_fail_passwords_for_wipe">10</item>
to this
  <item type="integer" name="devicepolicy_max_fail_passwords_for_wipe">0</item>
Reboot phone. Then it will be disabled. You can unroot if you don't need/want root.
