    Here is what you should do. IMO

    first....open D2\DX Bootstrap Recovery.
    1. Open DX\D2 Bootstrap Recovery
    2. Select top option and grant SU Permission....wait for "success" to pop up
    3. Select second option....your phone will reboot
    4. In this menu Volume up and volume down are your navigation and camera = enter....back arrow goes back a level or to previous menu
    5. Navigate to Backup\restore
    6. Select backup....this will take a while...wait till it says backup complete then navigate back to original menu
    7. this time select "wipe data/factory reset"
    8. Select "yes----delete all data"
    9. Hit back arrow
    10. Select "choose zip from SDCARD
    11. Find and select Liberty 2 or X (depending on if you have a D2 or DX) and hit camera button....wait till install is complete
    12. Use back arrow to get back to main menu and select reboot

    That's it.

    You can use the first post in this thread for referrence.....there are also instructions for installing themes and more. A lot can be found in the Liberty Toolbox for additional mod's and tweaks.

    for some reason the bootstrapper recovery is not working...
    I open the app...choose bootstrap recovery and get success...I then choose reboot recovery but it goes into a blank screen with the andoid symbal and an exclamation mark inside a triangle
    any thoughts???
