    So you're good? I would totally get on liberty. Super nice rom. Yeah, I'm in Rochester. Guess you are not too far, huh? If you want to get on gb, let me know.

    What has wiped your sd? Clockwork wouldn't do that. Installing a rom wouldn't either.

    started the gingerbread thing. loaded sbf full, rooted, got everything working, then my other computer caught a virus, or i should say got inundated. up to 14 infections so far. and only at 43% of scan. oh, i also ran the z4 root. so will be trying to do the recovery and then load gingerbread.

    what do you mean wipe and reflash?
    loaded handsent, see if i get the dreded double notices. have auto retrieve off on both stock and handsent.
    swipe dosent work, tried beta and it wont work either.
    still like the gingerbread though.

    Reinstall is what I mean. Go into clockwork and wipe and reflash it should take care of a lot of bugs. It's up to you though, if you can't get your sms working properly

    Flash the backup that you should have made. If you did not make one, then you need to find a stock image or another ROM.
