    Hi,
    im new to android (got my droid X last week) and interested in a pure AOSP rom. I was reading around and found liberty to be one of the closest I could get to true AOSP (along side with rubix and fission). While all of them had good review I picked this over the others because of the no throttle mod. Im currently using System Version 2.3.340.MB810 and Android Version 2.2.1

    Anyways im trying to find the most current liberty rom (for my current version), and if any new updates are out I would like to know

    Is this the official place where updates and new liberty files will be posted to?

    thanks for your time

    You can find information on the current public release here: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/liberty-rom-dx/145479-rom-liberty-gingerbread-v0-4-return-eagle.html If you're interested in accessing the most up to date version of Liberty you'll need to buy the Donate Liberty Toolbox. If you're the more patient type you can download the standard Liberty Toolbox which provides access to a version of Liberty open to the public (I think currently one version behind). That said, Team Liberty has said that final releases will be made available to all.

    In short, the answer is yes. The latest Liberty ROM, when it is finished, is posted here (at least historically. Not sure if it's going to go Toolbox-only this time or not.) If you buy the Donate version, you get beta/nightly builds. If you don't, you can still install the latest "release" version.

    He said he was on 2.3.340 (2.2.1), so the most current version of Liberty for that base is Liberty 2.0.1.

    You can install LGB v0.1 FULL INSTALL from within the Liberty Toolbox Donate app. Then install v0.5 (with kernel update) and I think there is even a v0.6 out now that will get you up to the .596 GB base, which is the OTA release.

    Just so there is no confusion, the Verizon release does not correlate with the LGB release. LGB has not been officially released yet. The 0.x downloads are pre-release versions you gain access to via the Donate version of the Liberty toolbox. The latest released version of Liberty is 2.0.1, and if you're a first-time ROM'er, I'd suggest sticking with that until you feel comfortable with things like SBF.

    You're right, I mis-interpreted what was being asked. So much of the chatter now-a-days is about Gingerbread I leaped right there.

    Liberty is the best AOSP ROM out there, in my opinion. It is basically an AOSP ROM with the good parts of Blur sprinkled in (you can choose what parts to install).

    If you are wanting to stay on a Froyo based ROM (hence the 2.3.340 (2.2.1)) then Liberty 2.0 is your current version. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/liberty-rom-dx/137375-liberty-rom-v-2-0-a.html (This thread is actually closed now.. :angry: )

    But due to the pending release of the OTA Gingerbread, I believe the development of Liberty 2.0 is being halted, but it is still a super stable ROM and I was running it for many weeks without any issues. Back to your questions.

    Yes, I do believe this is the official home for Liberty ROM.

    If you want to be current current (as in beta current) you could pay $5 and get the Liberty Donate Toolbox from the market. It has the latest versions of Liberty ROM. I believe it is up to v0.6 for Liberty Gingerbread, which should get you up to the .596 system version (should be the OTA).

    Starting with v0.5 (or v0.4) they put in the Liberty Customizer, which is a series of questions you will go through at the initial boot. It allows you to select AOSP apps or Blur apps. I really like this alot b/c i prefer most AOSP apps, but I cant seem to shake the need for the Blur Alarm and Dock. I think it is the best with both worlds. If you follow the install instructions exactly, wiping data, cache, etc. you will not have any issues.

    Edit: Yes once you go to LGB, you will have to SBF to get back to Froyo, but with the pending release of OTA GB, I can only assume that the development of any Froyo ROM will start to dissipate rather quickly.

    Make sure you learn how to sbf before flashing any rom (froyo or gb). Get the files and rsd lite 4.9 now just in case. I'm on liberty 2.0.1 and it is simply the best rom out there. I'm jumping to liberty gb tomorrow now that a stable ver is out for the d2. The difference between stock and liberty is literally night and day, really. If you have any questions, i'm around and am happy to help. I'm a liberty freak! Haha

    great thanks! i do have a couple of questions before i install liberty
    im following this guide
    Noob's Guide to a Droid X - xda-developers

    So now im on the next step, which is installing Droid X Bootstrap.
    Ive already rooted it with z4

    Now what im trying to do next is install the liberty ROM
    So please correct me if i understand this wrong
    since im already at stock firmware and havent touched anything except root, if I install Droid X Bootstrap and make a back up, Is it correct to say I no longer need to the SBF/RSD step?

    because after i install my liberty ROM I can just use Droid X Bootstrap to go back to original settings right?

    did i get that right and is it safe for me to move on to my next step and install liberty ROM?

    If you are on system version 2.3.340 there is no need to SBF. I think you are on the right path. The only situation that you might be getting yourself in is that you are about to install Liberty 2.0 (correct?). With the OTA of Gingerbread being pushed out to the masses starting today, the development and support for Liberty 2.0 is about to stop (or already has, as the official thread is now closed). If you make a backup of stock you can always restore that backup as long as you don't change bases (i.e. Froyo to GB, you must SBF, Froyo to Froyo, just restore your backup, etc)

    I think you might have shown up to party just a little late, don't get me wrong, Liberty 2.0 is/was the best ROM for Froyo, but it is GB time. You might want to start reading about Liberty Gingerbread and get in on that party, it is pretty nice.

    Just to comment on the OP's original post:

    Liberty is not as AOSP as it used to be, in order to give more Blur options for those who wanted them. At this point, we're just striving to be a solid, fast rom with heavy customization options.

    Their "official" site is here...

    And on Twitter...

    And maybe in the Toolbox..

    Maybe even Facebook.

    Every announcement i've seen is through their Twitter accounts, and sometimes I'll just find out myself something was released by way of the Toolbox.

    Funny.
