    I have to know....which is better on speed, performance, and battery life.....Liberty 2.0 or the leaked GB? I am tempted to install the leaked GB but I can't seem to talk myself into it....I think it's due to the required SBF to get back to Liberty.

    So....help me decide....am I waiting for official Liberty 2.0 to be released or should I flash leaked GB tonight?

    So basically, even though rooting is legal the basic fact is that since the carrier does not support rooted devices, we will lose service and have contracts cancelled for it.

    Thats basically what it comes down to....

    About battery life, i dont know which is better because we dont have gingie for d2g but i would think Liberty would be simply because of no blur. Blur is notorius for being leaky and drains battery.

    ah.....I have just noticed that the move from 1.5 to 2.0 has seemed to drain battery twice as fast. In all actuality I think I remember getting best battery life out of stock

    Thats odd..... I got terrible battery life out of stock, even with the same oc profiles JuiceDefender settings etc. I get pretty good battery life out of Liberty though, about 14 hours a day with moderate use, about 6 with really heavy use.

    so don't take this personal or do, but piss off, if you loaded GB u had already been tracked, get off my back I carry enough weight already

    So I guess those of us that took the plunge are being tracked by the big men... But then he said...

    lets clarify things, the tracking and database was done long before we leaked GB, so when you rooted when u got ur phone u were got.

    So apparently we have all been added to the "rooted" list even before GB? His statements seem to kind of contradict each other. At first it was if you loaded GB you are toast.. now it's if you root at all. I guess only time will tell.

    I tend to believe it is a little overhyped too based on the fact that nobody has confirmed getting denied a warranty claimed. Even if they are on some "list" there has been no effect yet. I understand the general message of his write up, but the doomsday stuff I don't quite believe just yet.
