    You need root because you need to use bootstrap to install liberty. If you're on the unrooted ota your only option currently is to SBF back to froyo and then install a pre-rooted version of the ota.

    yes i thought so too.. but the note on the install instructions says:

    Install Instructions:
    =============================

    Note:

    Liberty v0.6 is based on the 4.5.596 OTA. You should be on this before installing the ROM.

    There is a pre rooted version of the 4.5.596 ota prepared by P3Droid and Team Black Hat. Check over on the mydroidworld forum and you should be able to find the rooted ota very easily. Team Liberty has said they'll be outlining the upgrade path in greater detail with future releases.

    Follow the instructions from P3Droid in this thread (Official DX Gingerbread 2.3.3 (4.5.596) Release Thread - Something for everyone) for the "method 2" upgrade path to install the OTA. Once you're on Gingerbread if you're interested in installing liberty download the Donate Liberty Toolbox or wait 48 hours for Liberty v0.6 to be posted publicly.
