    I really liked the customizable Car Home App in Liquid Froyo 1.95, but now I’m running PE 3.5.

    Is there a way for me to get just the car home app and move it to the new ROM?

    I was considering doing this:

    1) Restore my Liquid 1.95 nandroid backup
    2) Use TiBU to backup all user & system apps
    3) Restore back to PE 3.5 via nandroid
    4) Use TiBU to restore just the Car Home app, which should be the liquid version

    Would that work?

    It won't if it's a system app. TiBu won't restore it. You could pull the car home app out of the the .zip file of liquid's Rom and then push it to system/app on your new Rom, change permissions and reboot.
