    Some very enterprising and talented members of our forums have created an amazing custom ROM they call "Liberty"! It's only for the 320/340 Droid X/2, so keep that in mind, but if that's the phone you have it's definitely worth a look . Their work is pretty ingenious and includes some excellent custom features. Here are just a few:
    • Base....built on top of GummyJAR
    • 95% of all the apps were built from source.... rather than decompiled and hacked apps via APKmanager!! And it shows in pure speed!!!!
    • Blurless
    • Wycontacts
    • AOSP Pattern lock
    • AOSP tab Lockscreen with the option for Rotary as well
    • Custom terminal emulator with added color options
    • Reboot option in power down menu
    • Launcher2 with increased snap velocity
    • Custom Liberty wallpapers app
    • Custom Liberty live wallpapers (nexus Mod like, modded from CM source)
    • Plus a ton more!
    Be careful installing this (like any) mod, as it is pretty major, but for anyone comfortable with the process it's well worth a look. Their hard work and talent really shines through. For a full list of features and some download links click our forum link here: Custom ROM - The Eagle has Landed!!!! Liberty 1.0

    vs rubix?

    I've been running rubix 1.9.5 and it's been amazing. Can anyone comment on the pros/cons of this rom vs rubix 1.9.5?

    I too use Rubix 1.9.5 and have used Rubix since it came out. I will be installing this and giving it a shot. No reason not to.

    Alright, I'll give it a shot. I'm just a little wary since the last ROM that was supposedly the "greatest" - darkslide 4.2, nice ROM but it was slow for me and honestly a little much on the theming/transitions.

    Very Nice...

    Got it up and running. Very Nice so far. Fast, smooth and very nice looking. I think it's at least on par with rubix if not much better (more options for customization)

    This ROM is far more better than DarkSlide... Kejars build and awesome speeds and smoothness. JRummys scripts, and both mashed together to make one hell of a slick, fast, smooth, and very customizable experience! Battery life is great plus as well!

    I put this on my phone yesterday and used it for a few hours. I had several force closes from apps that have never forced close before. Even the live wallpaper I've been using for a while now forced closed several times. it felt a little slower than Rubix 1.9.5. Other than that, I liked it. I liked the yellow. But all in all, it looked very much like vanilla Android. That being said, I prefer the stability of Rubix more so I restored my nandroid backup.

    I do see a lot of potential in this ROM. Since it is only the first release, I think it will be able to compete with the 'big boys' currently available for the DX. I will be keeping an eye and try future releases for sure.
