    It kind of replaces the stock os your are using with a faster one without all that added crap that slows your phone. Your phone tends to run a lot faster and better battery life. I was using fission but just switched to liberty. Before you do anything, you MUST make a backup of your stock rooted phone. After backing up, you can experiment all you want and not be worried about messing up your phone...you can always resote back to stock and try again.

    Gingerbread is the code name for Android 2.3 version of software. All Android versions have code names (the current one if you are stock OTA is Frozen Yogurt or Froyo for short).

    Maybe the OP stated it, but for a newb, this isn't just another ROM right? This is the actual OTA official release of GB to the DroidX. (well, rumored, or supposed to be, I get the "shaky information, don't bank on it" part)

    As far as I understand it, this is about a leak of the gingerbread update for the droid x, meaning that if it is a leak it will be available to root users first. But that it will be basically an advanced copy of the official update. I could be off base though.

    So basically, to non-ROM users, it says "it's coming, just wait".

    Thanks!

    Exactly. That is if I'm understanding right.

    Ok, I installed the Titanium backup and backed up my system and apps. Now, how do I get Liberty?

    The DX owners running any of the well-worked roms now are going to fall into the same conundrum that we always face when there is an OTA lurking. I came off of 928 BGX theme (which isn't a ROM) to get the latest ota, and then ended jumping into Darkslide 4.1 (then quickly to 4.2) before shipping out overseas.

    The question will sit unless you just jump at it. I mean how much can we just listen and watch the boards for those who've made the jump and either praise or complain about GB when it debuts?

    Usually, the leading devs have something based off a leak that quickly turns into working roms for the full official ota updates. Patience is definitely part of the DX game.

    If you run stock, and plan to stay stock...no worries, your DX will take GB and not suffer anything more than either an inconvienice or actually be better to your flavor pallette. ROM'd users have to come so far back just to get to the ota, and then to think about losing what time and effort you've got invested in your DX only to possibly lose it all because you end up hating the new update and wont be able to get back your perfect setup?!?!

    Well, I'm just rambling now. It's been a while since I posted. Hope I haven't missed much. It's not looking like much is happening....although gingerbread making it's way to DX ought to be interesting.

    The only downside I see to this is if the Droid X gets Gingerbread soon, won't it be silly that the Droid Bionic is only releasing with Froyo? Why can't manufacturers release new phones with the most current version of Android?

    you need droid bootstrapper from the market

    here is a link to liberty:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/li...m-eagle-has-landed-liberty-1-0-1-11-11-a.html

    i downloaded this file to my pc first and transfered it to my sd card after. that way i have a packup of the liberty rom on my pc. i also suggest making a copy of your stock rom on your pc just in case your sd card ever goes bad.

    when using bootstrapper be sure to" hit bootstrap" recovery first. wait for the "ok" button then hit "reboot recovery".

    from there just follow the very few simple instructions and your phone will do the rest. when you have it loaded up you can use the liberty tool app that should be installed to change things to your liking.

    Enjoy!
