    Great Work!

    Just installed, after reluctantly switch away from Liberty. I love that ROM, but it's just.. old.. SD works great!

    Thank you very much!

    I am trying to do the ultimate clean install per your instructions:
    "FLASH 5.6.890 SBF (for a TOTALLY clean install for those with paranoia)"

    Is 5.6.890 SBF still recommended to flash first or are those instructions outdated?

    I am currently running: OTA 5.7.906.XT862.Verizon.en.US, rooted, with safestrap 2.10 installed but currently disabled.

    It's outdated. There is no reason to flash an SBF unless you messed up your stock system somehow. If all of that is running fine, root with Motofail, install safestrap, and flash steeldroid to either a rom slot or the safe system (depending on which version of safestrap you are using.)

    I think I fixed it. I did a fresh install in a new ROM-slot and that seemed to solve that issue.

    General Problems

    Hey chevycam94 i have problems with the rom. I tried once to install it but first time Play Store wouldn't download any apk. Then i went to the safestrap menu and tried to clean the cache but somehow i put on running the default rom from latest Safestrap's application. And in the first slot i had installed the rom, there was nothing.. I restarted the phone and it was running on default rom. Restart again and made the install of 5.0 SD again. After that the rom boots up normally but the phone hangs out a lot.
    Every single time i get out of an app the system tries to "refresh" and "reload" all the icons on the menus. I have installed the Go Launcher, cause it seems better to my eyes, not sure what does with the memory consuption though. Anyways i've installed Advanced Task Manager Pro and with the Go Task Manager i try to clean up the memory that gets full and then wait to see if the phone gets to a better situation. Best case scenario is approximattely 150MB free ram
    (when phone has just rebooted starts with almost 220MB then it falls to 170 usually) and a laggy phone. Worst case scenario is that i have to restart the phone. Also i have huge problem with the battery cause it has almost 24h of standby, but when it comes to typical daily use, meaning some phonecalls, a little 3G surfing and a little gaming ( Easy Battery Saver installed too) the phone can't last for more than 15 hours :/

    Any advices would be thankfull, since my phone has turned to a torture. I should mention i was on 4.8 before and had no such problems.

    Ps. Any link supporting what is NOT working in
    Steel Droid: 5.6 - Ice Cream Sandwich in order to consider if i can use it daily, would be great.

    Thanks in advance. I posted this here if someone has/will have such problems...

    Yea, I actually have been VERY busy. Its hard to keep up with everything these days, and with work picking back up, and college about to start back up, its really going to be something. Im just trying to fit in everything I can, but Im only one person, so this is a little harder than you might think.

    We all droid users really appreciate your work and thank you cause you've made our android experience a lot better. I just posted twice given the fact that you usually answer in a time of 7 days. Maybe cause the problems i get are so annoying and can't enjoy my phone.
    Anyways do as you can, and i wish luck to your matters. When you got time, see our problems here too.

    I know. I got your messages and all, but the D3 is a little harder to work on, and Im running short on spare time right now. Im working 3 weeks straight right now (NO days off), from 5am to 7pm usually. I will try to get things fixed as I can. I also have to try to balance what can get fixed before what other things. Its a job all in itself. lol

    Droid. 5.7.906 Stock ROM

    if installing Steel Droid v5.0 Gingerbread, do I still need to flash back to 5.6.890 SBF as the instruction says? or can I skip that and go directly to "ROOT STOCK ROM". I have the Droid. 5.7.906 Stock ROM on Droid 3

    ALso, are there any issues with Steel Droid v5.0 Gingerbread which would affect the functionality I have now? would some applications/features like google navigation, office (which came free with stock) not work? Does v5.0 have bugs?

    Thanks
