    I heard that liberty is like the number one best rom for droid x. With that said, would you guys agree? This will be my very first rom that I would be using, and would like to ask questions if could answer that would make my day.

    1.If I installed that custom bootstrap, how hard would it be to uninstall if needed to?

    2.When flashing a rom, I must wipe it clean or it will be laggy?

    3.In this rom can I change the option if I want to take off transparent? Like I just want a black drop down menu.

    4.Will I lose root,overclock settings, as well as all of my apps since I have to wipe clean everything?

    5.Does this rom have much blur?

    6.Is it true that roms save battery life? If so, will this one?

    7.I saw on youtube when you wipe clean to go back to stock or another rom, the boot logo will stay as liberty. How would I fix this?

    8.Will my notifications still work as stock would, and will it mess with the light flow app? Light flow is fire changing led color of certain notifications.

    9.Has anyone experience any bug in this app that would annoy me or hurt my phone that maybe could brick it?

    10. When flashing a rom, such as this one, is it a possibility you can brick your phone?

    11.What would you rate this rom above all others, and if rate low, what do you think is better to use that gives you tons of customization?

    12.Will my market not auto update?

    Thanks for reading! Um if could maybe direct me to the latest update of liberty please.

    You are the best, thanks sooo much for answering all of my questions. You said my market won't push updates, then how would I get the latest update? As well as no blur, some people say you need blur or your phone will crash. Is that true, and if so is there a way to get blur for this rom?

    P.s
    I may try this, so if I do, I'm gonna pm you and ask for your IM name.

    your market will push updates. he meant it will work the same way it is now meaning you will always get the latest updates. having no blur in this rom will not brick or make your phone crash. having certain blur applications is left to the user which is whats great about the liberty toolbox which lets you install a few blur apps if that was your preference

    my answer to your market question was meant to say 'yes, you will get app updates just as you are currently" sorry for the confusion

    as for the Blur....the Devs have worked around that, this rom WORKS right out of the "box' without any blur. it may be there in the background somewhere, but not where we can see it. the liberty toolbox that is included in the ROM will allow you to install the blur camera, blur desk clock, blur (2d)gallery, FM radio, and blur music apps.

    Ok that just about does it, but 2 more questions I have to ask. I noticed the toolbox has a change notification bar. Will this let me change to solid black like I want? Adw launcher works yes?

    Adw works fine with this and any other rom you may try.

    The status bar changer in toolbox only changes the Verizon text in the pulldown to whatever you want it to say.

    To change the actual status bar color our icons you can use ninja morph or metamorph from the market.

    Wiping the data/cache does not touch your sd card at all. In fact, the sd card is where the bootstrap backup stores your backup.

    First things first, make sure you are on system version 2.3.340.... If not, do an OTA from verizon. You will have to re root and do another backup. If you are on 2.3.340 you are asl set to follow the below instructions.

    Place the .zip on the sd card, I make a "Rom" folder and put them in that.
    Bootstrap recovery then reboot recovery.
    Once in clockwork, wipe data, then wipe cache.
    Go down to choose.zip from sd card
    Choose .zip
    Navigate to the rom folder and select the liberty .zip
    And select ok

    hmmm...not sure if you can even add DLNA or media share to this ROM....i havn't tried and i wouldn't even know where to start. you can always find the .apk file, and move it to the system/app folder using Root explorer and see if it works, but no guarantees.

    i could never get the theme installer app to work correctly, so i just download them from here, put on SD card and install just like you installed the ROM (you do NOT need to wipe data/cache when installing a theme)

    to change the boot logo, you can do this in liberty tools.
    to change the boot animation, download the file below (this is the original droid X bootanimation.zip) and use a file explorer to move it to data/local folder.
    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
    just make sure to re-name it bootanimation.zip if it is not already that.
