    That is true...but I found it somewhere else. Let me find that link. Personally....with how useful it is, this app SHOULD be bought.

    I can not get to this website. Is this site down? If so, is there another way?

    Thanks!

    It should only take 15-20 seconds. I had issues too. Did you go into bootstrapper and delete you cache and data files? I was boot lopping until I did that.

    First -MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BACKUP!!!!!

    You should already have one though.

    Go to apps and open bootstrapper app, then click/touch reboot recovery.

    Phone should reboot into clockwork recovery. Use volume to m ove up/down, select WIPE DATA/FACTORY RESET. hit the camera button to select.

    Move down to WIPE CACHE PARTITION, select. Then select reboot. You might have to reinstall Liberty from the zip if it doesnt work right away.
