    I'm looking forward to this new ROM with the powers combined. My one and only request...

    Please make an option for Blur or Blurless.

    I'm rocking GummyJar... and love it. But I really like some of the Blur apps. Such as the Social Network widgets.

    Thanks for all your time and consideration!

    On of Liberty's main pillars is freedom- from pre loaded crapware. Including blur-ware would sort of defeat the purpose (though I agree with you, I specifically prefer the blur calendar over aosp) if you want a nice mix between blur and blurless run ApeX. You wont regret it.

    I see your point. But maybe let the Blur apps be able to be added to the ROM. I ran apex for a little bit. But gumjar runs so smooth and fast.

    I ran GJ too at stock clock, and actually found ApeX to run far smoother on my phone- while underclocked. Option is nice, but think of fission- pure Android, and think of this as useful additions to that.

    There will be the option to install a few blur apps from within the Liberty Toolbox... Not many just the Alarm, Keyboard, Camera, FM Radio, Music and MyNet..

    Notice, all these apps are of descent to high quality and require little to no extra blur back-end software to run. Things such as the Dialer, Contacts, Calendar, Email and Messaging would require a complete rework to the base and take the ROM in an undesirable direction.

    What about things like DLNA and sound cancellation during phone calls?

    Tried to get DLNA to work bu tit started to get messy.. sound cancellation (something I didn't even know about) is more than likely part of the dialer.

    Glad to hear this. While I know some people like blur I'm glad to get as far away from it as possible.

    Agreed, its the whole point of the ROM. I do miss the blur dialer and contacts a bit, but its worth the sacrifice to run as smoothly as gummy does. Besides, there are a few pretty functional 3rd party dialers out there.

    Anyone know if this works or not. Its not a deal breaker for me if it doesn't but it would be nice if it did. I used to use it back when I was on tranquility pretty often

    Is this a never then for DLNA or possible in the future? Not to nag but just wanted clarification as DLNA is something I use.

    I believe many devs dont know that ambient sound cancellation is a feature on the phone. All Roms ive tried had that feature not working even the blur ROMs. Maybe its not specifically named soundcancellation or whatever but i really like that feature and showed it off to my friends a few times before messing with my phone. And there should at least be a liberty with Blur. I even got a name for it "Blurred Liberty", for those who believe they are free but are still tied down to the government,(Blur). There will definitely be a donation from me if there is one available.

    I've been looking for the perfect ROM and after installing Liberty I know I've finally found it! I do have one problem, the alarm that comes on when I put my x into the dock is the old droid clock. Which I don't mind but the DX blur alarm clock has a feature when the alarm is going off all you have to do is touch anywhere on the screen and it goes to snooze. The other dock alarm you have to open your eyes and push the snooze option if you don't you will turn the alarm off. This has been a big problem for me so I downloaded the blur clock in the toolbox but it doesn't make the blur clock come on when inserted into the dock? Is there a way to completely get rid of the old clock and dock?

    If you go to Toolbox > App Management > Remove Apps, you can select the AOSP Clock (com.android.deskclock) and delete it. Try it and see if it fixes the problem.

    Just set your blur alarm from within your app tray, and turn the other alarms off. Still works great with my dock. The only small issue is that the alarm icon that comes up when you dock your phone still tries to take you to the aosp alarm. I haven't tried removing the aosp alarm through the toolbox yet.
