    It has been awhile since I have posted on DroidForums or any forums. I just wanted to take a second to reflect over the past two years of working on Android projects and give you guys some news.

    My Reflections:

    Hmmm... I'm in one of those pondering moods. You know.. where you sit back and think, "How in the world did I get where I am at today??" Android has played a huge role in my life in the past two years. What an adventure. Night after night trying to teach myself all about Android and now I can officially say I am a nerd. And it all started here, on DroidForums. I have found the Android community to have some great people, exciting (but retarded) drama, and lots of love and support for developers and beginners alike.

    I just want to end my little "reflections" message with a big thanks! Thank you to everyone out there in Android, whether you have supported me or not. Developing ROMs (Remix, Shiz, Kangerade, LithiumMod, Liberty, Justice and helping with others), creating several themes, developing apps (Overclock, Toolbox, RootTools, Busybox Installer, etc.) and doing my best to stay on top of questions and emails has been a long and hard road. Most of all I would like to thank my wife for putting up with my Android addiction. Without her non of my projects would have been possible.

    News:

    Ok, so you got passed my ponderings (or just skipped them). Here are some updates on some Android Projects I have going:

    Liberty ROM:

    Yes, I will continue work on Liberty ROM. I know there is a new update out and I will work on the next Liberty for the Droid X and Droid 2. I plan to go back to work on Liberty this upcoming week.

    Justice ROM:


    I have decided to stop work on Justice for now. CyanogenMod is a great open source ROM. If I stopped work on Liberty and worked on Justice a lot more things would be possible because I would be working with code. Liberty ROM cannot have all the features an open source ROM has because we aren't working with code. The plus side about ROMs like Liberty is they are based off official updates that were meant for the device. So, if you like having aosp & blur options Liberty is the way to go. If I continues work on Justice I felt like I would have to put all other android projects to the side and I can't do that right now.

    ROM Toolbox:

    I will be updating ROM Toolbox today with some minor changes. Liberty and Justice will be available in free version as well as some other features.

    After spending a week or two re-writing ROM Toolbox I now have decided I want to redo the whole thing again o_O I want to make it ridiculously awesome and it just isn't where I want it currently. If you got the donate/pro version thank you so much for supporting development. I plan to work on ROM Toolbox for along time and make your donation worth it ;)

    Droid Overclock:

    Droid Overclock is an app I work on with xeudoxus (Matt Oaks). He goes unnoticed sometimes and is a great developer. We have updates planned and currently have 2 new profiles (time & call). We also have future plans for it to have different themes available for the app as well as tablet support (it supports tablets now but the layout needs work).

    App Manager:

    I started work on this 2-3 weeks ago and it is getting ready for a first release. I am really excited about how it is turning out. Basically I downloaded every app manager I could find and combined every feature into one app. Right now it has no root features but I plan on adding all of those. Once done it will be able to do backup/restore (for root) and have every feature I can dig up and think of.

    Other apps:


    Yeah... I will do my best to update those too o_O



    Thanks for reading my ramblings and for all your support! I really appreciate it!

    It's great to hear from you Jared! Thanks for keeping us up to date. I know a lot of us as fans of your work have been wondering what was going on. I'm so excited to see what you'll develop next. My first rom was liberty and I am so grateful for all you do (including all those must have apps you've created. I'm liking the new app manager and revamped toolbox.) It was you who got me excited about android. Now to my disbelief as well, I've gone total geek :p I was happy to donate to team liberty. Keep up the good work!

    I've loved Liberty, the changes to ROM toolbox, and I can't wait to see what you come up with next. I guarantee I'll be getting the donate version of your app manager. Love your work, thank you so much!

    Thank you for the update Jared. Your overclocking app was the first app I loaded after rooting my phone. When I found the Liberty toolbox it was a god send I no longer had to try 5 or 6 ROMs a day liberty was way cool so I eagerly bought the Liberty tool box. Then came Justice and that was it for me I absolutely loved it, so please don't stop supporting it. I. think I own all of your paid apps and do appreciate your hard work. So keep it up but don't loose time away from your family as a result of that hard work.

    Thanx again,

    SMD

    Can't wait

    I've been on gummyjar and Liberty since the start because they took the DX from being mediocre to nearly perfect. I'm now on stock 602 because I couldn't deal with the random reboots and loss of 3G and GPS due to bugs in 595. So now the device is more stable, but back to being laggy and sluggish. I'm looking forward to being back with Liberty again! Jared, you do awesome work and the DX community is very lucky to benefit from your talent. Seems like you've found a good work/life balance as it should should be. I'll wait patiently. Hj

    Jared, I gotta say that you are the one who got me into all this craziness on D2! You do a hell of a job and appreciate it all. I'm still a rookie but you drive me to keep learning about all this! Family comes first and thank your wife for all of us for putting up with it all, I know how much time you can spend on this stuff (btw are we still in the month of March????)

    thanks again, and keep on keepin on!

    JUSTICE

    Since I'm sure to not be the only person saddened by the loss of Justice I wanted to point others is a good direction to pick up where Justice is leaving off.

    Read carefully and the transition is a breeze!

    Thanks again J!

    Man, liberty is the best. At first I thought I wasn't going to jump ship from fission, but I did; And I didn't want to go back. I never, (I mean never) had any problems with liberty on my X at all. I started with Liberty 1.5, then 2.0, then 2.0.1 (froyo) then I waited till .9 and jumped over. It is so smooth, and currently I have not found a single problem with it.

    Keep up the good work Jared

    ROM Toolbox question?

    I know this maybe isn't the best place for this, but I couldn't find the info anywhere. I have a question on use of the ROM Toolbox (specifically the minfree taskkiller). I don't want to use the taskkiller. Is it on by default if you have ROM Toolbox installed? How can I turn it off?

    Thanks for the help.
