    I want to open this disscussion to all with an opinion/ knowledge of both roms. I hope the sumitions will depict both toms accurately, because I've read through the threads but still don't know what the stand alone features are for liberty?

    Liberty has a toolbox for easier change of boot logo's, boot animations and themes. And

    I'm sure I missed a few when it comes to JRum. I have a great respect of the 2 dev's that

    came together to make Liberty. When finally polished it will probably be in the top 3 of best

    ROM's so for. JMO.

    Darkslide, well, it is finely tuned as far as I'm concerned. This explains my huge hesitation to

    switch to Liberty or any other ROM. It is fully themed, including multiple keyboards and black

    Market. The window animations are sweet and smooth. It's fast and has amazing support even

    though not much support is needed.

    So to compare once again, comes down to preference. Those that have bugs

    with Liberty and know how to fix them themselves, don't really have bugs and

    are running an amazing ROM. Other people that need a liittle more support may not

    be completely satisfied yet, but will be. And those with Darkslide I find have very few

    issues right off the bat and therefor makes it a very appeasing ROM.

    i agree with this 100%. unfortunately im one of those people with a few small bugs on liberty that are annoying but i do not know how to fix them. its made me consider going back to darkslide. i have a feeling though most of my bugs have to do with the fact i switched launchers (LPP -> GoLauncher) at the same time

    There is no comparison. Liberty is the ultimate I.M.O. Darkslide is a very good rom, nothing bad to say about it,except that i hated the battery icon, lol. I moved to ChevyNo1's SSX, which is amazing, to me far slicker & faster than Darkslide. Then along came Liberty, & I will never look back. I did a clean install, & have had ZERO bugs, & i have amazing battery life. Top Notch...

    Running liberty right now. This thing is fast. Dark slide is good too, but it's a little slower.

    Droid X. Rooted with Z4root and underclocked to save battery life.

    If I could change the themes on darkside it would be the best to me IMO. I would like more choices when it come to animations like trans. But both are cool roms.

    I had issues with darkslide. The aosp dialer killed liberty for me as well since I make a lot of calls from my cardock and the inability of the aosp to do landscape is REALLY annoying.

    IMO, the rom with the most features and least bugs is Apex. Add or remove blur as you see fit, very fast and a TON of options you don't get with any other rom.

    liberty is really fast and my battery life has been amazing. I really like the toolbox too, it has a ton of options like changing themes, boot logos, and everything else you'd expect from jrummy haha

    Sorry I didn't clarify. When I switched to liberty I also switched launchers. I haven't used llp w liberty. And I also worked out the bugs I had using go launcher.

    Ask this in the liberty section. Best way to get the answer your looking for.

    Both are very good Roms and I'm not sure which I prefer.

    I do however like the included 3g hotspot included in Darkslide.

    Was thinking bout getting liberty. I'm newly rooted and really only use my tethering. I know I'm missing out on all the goodies. Was going to download koush's bootstrap but got scared away by not knowing what SBF is. Is it a big deal?

    As long as you do your reading it's not a big deal. Go for it! Just be sure to make a stock backup first thing before you do anything else. (Right after you get bootstrap)

    It is very difficult to "actually" brick your phone. If the software gets messed up you can always do an sbf and fix it. As far as the reading I just meant that you should have an idea of what you are doing before you do it. There are many tutorials that are helpful.

    I've not had to do an sbf yet on my X and I bounce from rom to rom almost daily. I did have to do an sbf once on my D2 because I didn't follow directions on a rom installation.

    If you ever did mess your phone up you just need to be calm. Because with a little patience you will be able to fix it!

    There are plenty of people that can help also!

    Ditto that! I've only flashed like two Roms..but before each like 30+ people flashed them and, I follow their threads to no end! !! Before taking the leap ......which brings me to the point of this thread I've been reading alot about liberity and some bugs there in...but are they bugs, or did poeple get a bad download,or did they not follow the instructions? And what was the selling point to those who decided to flash....was it worth the change?
