    This isn't a true custom ROM per se, but it is the first Deodexed ROM for the Droid Bionic that will eventually lead to a custom ROM. In fact, for all the amazing modders out there, this would be the first point to jump into theming or creating your own custom ROM. This one is courtesy of Kejar31, of the great guys behind the famous Liberty Roms. Below are some instructions and download links:

    Man things are rolling fast for you Bionic-ers. And Kejar to boot. I realize he did liberty for a while but anyone remember Gummyjar? That ROM was awesome.

    Wow, things are moving fast. If the Prime isn't all it's cracked up to be by that time the Bionic will have plenty to enjoy.

    Are there any differences in this ROM from the Android version currently running on my Bionic? I am rooted but am curious if this will make it possible to do anything else for the end-user at this time.

    Let me know.

    ^ I think it mostly just removes a lot of the bloatware.

    I thought that deodexed ROMs allow themes to be applied more easily. Admittedly, I don't know too much about the subject, so I could be wrong.

    kejar did gummyjar and jrummy based liberty on gummyjar, so technically kejar is at the bottom of it but jrummy did liberty! :)

    I remember the him using it as a base part. I read a post by someone from the Liberty team where it made it sound like he was on the team at one point but I did not follow at the time so I do not know for sure. Either way I enjoyed both. I hope I did not give the impression I was knocking anyone.

    One says debloated so that would be the smaller one. He probably removed all the sweet VZW stuff we all love lol.
