    Liberty is not an overlay. Liberty is a customized version of a leak. If you flash Liberty, you are flashing the system it was built upon, in this case, the .588 leak.

    I believe you could restore a .588 backup while on the newest leak, but I'm not positive. I know something was stated about that in the MDW thread.

    You should be able to do an advanced data only restore from .588 to .591 not a full restore.

    According to the .591 leak thread at MDW, you can put a .588 rom over .591 (obviously downgrading your system) with no harm. Even a nand restore should be fine. Also, I have a honey bread theme on my .591 leak and it's quite nice.

    Lol I didn't even realize that... Once Liberty gets updated to .591 I hope to see it there!
