    I rooted my droid 2 using boot loader and then installing Liberty from the sd card. when i rebooted my phone it is stuck on the loading screen with the rotating eagle. any ideas on how to get past this or reset my phone? any help would be appreciated.

    i already commented in your other thread. you need to do a data wipe from recovery.

    I'm sorry. I'm not sure what happened to my other thread, I can't find it. I'll continue looking for it, but I'm not sure how to get into recovery mode.

    OK. I found it, and this is probably a really stupid question but what is the x button?

    Open the slide up on the phone and hold the x button on the key pad

    Thanks for your help. That solved the problem. And if you don't mind I have another quick question... Do you think liberty is the best for the droid 2 or should I find something else?

    That makes me nervous. I have a d2 and was about to install liberty. Its my first ROM and after reading this I'm second guessing. It looks so sick though!
