    I suggest that you go install Liberty on there. And I would probably start with SBFing it just in case something nasty had been on there before putting Liberty on there.

    When you reboot, you're going into the bootstrap recovery. Go ahead and "wipe data/factory reset" then boot up and put in your gmail info, see how it works out. If you would like a completely stock phone, let me know and I'll go ahead and get the SBF instructions for you.
