There are a few differences in them. I would recommend using each one to find the one you like more. To switch between them and change the default you can get a free program from the market called Home Switcher.

From the main recovery screen, go to: Nandroid and then select
"Backup"


Edit: Ok, so I used the app "QuickBoot" and booted into
*Recovery Mode* using Clockwork Recovery and now I understand.

My bad...I was confused



Yeah, people that are used to SPRecovery may not understand so I'll take the opportunity to elaborate

If you go to the application called ROM Manager, you can "Backup Current ROM" and when you select that...you have the opportunity to name the file. I usually name it something like:

LFY_v1.5_stock_8-23-10 - for stock LFY ROM with stock kernel
BFY_LFY_v1.5_1.2GHz_8-23-10 - for Blueberry LFY ROM with 1.2 GHz kernel

You CAN rename your backups in ROM manager via "Manage and Restore Backups" (when you select a backup...you will have the option to restore, rename, or delete).

Name your files PROPERLY!!! It could save you lots of time and frustration later on...

Hopefully that makes sense to everyone...

do we have to wipe/factory reset? cant we just wipe data and cache? Won't a factory reset wipe backups also?

i've always wiped data and cache when installing new ROM but i'm hesitant with these instructions.

Do you have to wipe data...no...but you could have issues if you don't. You could try it and then take it from there.

As for formatting you system and boot partitons...I HIGHLY recommend it but most people are not used to formatting those.

Most people have random FC's, reboots, or other errors they can't explain from time to time...I don't

Not to disagree with you, as you have rooted things far more than I have, and I'm fully expecting issues with the way I did things, but as I mentioned earlier, I flashed 1.5 right over BnB themed 1.4. So far, no issues! I just wanted to see what would happen.

Obviously, not the best way to do it. But it sure was nice not to have to reload all my apps and reset all my icons.

Just hoping I stay lucky and don't have any issues down the road.

Your backups would be stored on your SD Card, so you will be fine.

Holding a steady temp? You sure the data isn't updating on Temp Monitor (or SetCPU)?

I'm seeing reasonable temperatures here...

i think there is a problem with the temp reporting in setcpu. it is VERY slow to respond for some reason... i mean like minutes to change then tempdrops several degrees...

it seems to only be the battery temp not the cpu temp

Thank you Liquid and team. DLing now. Was hoping to see a Watermark'd version for this like the last one (you listening, stewart? lol), but I haven't tried the full Black n Bold theme, anyway.

EDIT: I hope you didn't revert back to the old boot animation on my account. I mean, I kinda hope ya did, but yanno. lol Also I see you have some skins for Beautiful Widgets. Any chance Weather Widget Donate can get some love? I'm thinking of getting Beautiful Widgets just so I can have my choice of either, as I change wallpapers and themes so much anyway.

Nope, you don't have to run anything in terminal to enable compcache -- it's built into the ROM.
am i correct to assume that if compache is built into the rom, that slayhers 1.6 kernals will also enable compache with this rom? i am digging 1.5 but i cant get the 1.5 kernals to cooperate. i may go back to to the 1.6 kernals if so.

EDIT: this does not appear to be a kernal issue either. i reinstalled the 1.6 kernal(no problems on 1.4) and am having the same problem: phone is running hot by feel and cpu temp(which is responding accurately) but the battery temp will not respond correctly.

Just installed 1.4 today like couple hours ago, did the wipe and all, so didn't want to wipe again to install 1.5, so far so good, no issues and running fast and stable and I haven't even upgraded my kernel yet. Threw on the smoked theme and gotta brand new phone now. Thanks team Liquid.

After you use the script to remove LP, you have to reboot the phone before you can install it from the market again.

Same holds true for any other app that was in that system that you remove using a script.

One way to clear defaults would be to go to Settings --> Applications --> {find the particular launcher you want - ADW / LP and press it} --> press the button that says clear defaults.

Home switcher is a good tool if you regularly change your home for whatever reason - such as being a ROM tester. Otherwise, it is pretty much a waste of space for something you'll do maybe once.

The differences between ADW and LP are too numerous to iterate here - you should try both of them out extensively and decide for yourself - both are high quality products.

By properly, he means this - no spaces in the file name - else the system will not allow it to proceed. There may be a max character count on the name itself, but I have seen some pretty long file names (and made a few myself). But spaces are a no go.

You got lucky - and I have done the same as well as gotten lucky.

However, you've had the ROM for less than 36 hours - let's see if it runs smooth as silk in 2 weeks. Or 2 months. That would be pure luck then.

In order to prevent idiosyncrasies in a ROM install that are too painful to trace down, and are a direct result (or even an indirect result, which are far greater PITAs) of not wiping, most ROM devs are gonna tell you - WIPE.

It's just like when n00bs tell other n00bs that rooting is easy, it takes 5 minutes - yeah, but if it gets tangled in a FUBARd SNAFU, then the n00b now had no clue as to what to do next. So advocating an in-place upgrade of a ROM over another ROM is almost taboo these days - we have enough headaches as it is from *other* in-place upgrades....

Are you using Slayher's kernels? I just had a bad case of the reboots on LFY 1.4 using jjdflg's 1200 Temp Monitor aware kernel - not happy any more. Before it supported TM, his 1200 was the shiznit, I was hitting very high 18.x MFLOPs and a super high Quadrant score as well, under BB 0.4.

Now - not so good.

Can you detail the difference between this B&B them and the smoked theme? I saw a couple but overall it looks very similar to the SFY....

Ok, I am running bugless beast right now. Interested on using this ROM, anyone here using it coming from BB?

Any gotchas I should look for?

Have you seen any performance improvements from BB?

I used Smoked Glass in the interim between BB 0.4 and LFY 1.4 - so technically, by the time I get LFY 1.5 on my phone I'll have had 2 different ROMs between BB 0.4 and LFY 1.5.

If you wipe like Liquid says to, you should not have any iffies at all.

However, take that with a grain of salt - YMMV, b/c not all phones are alike, and neither are us owners all alike - so what works great on my phone may fizzle on yours.

Gotcha's? Yeah...there's one...

You will never switch again LOL!

Perfomance wise...LFY is the best I have ever used. Feature wise...it's not feature packed quite like CyanogenMod but all the "necessary" additions are there (plus some I'm sure)....but I'm a simple man...I want the ROM to be stable (first priority), fast (second priority), and well themed (third priority...but still importantant).

Yeah, I'm running the 1.2GHz variety...really fast. It's a little different "feeling" with the interactive SetCPU setting. Instead of a "ramp up" in speed...it seems to lag for a split second (if waking the phone up) and then it just kind of "jolts" to full speed. Wake it up and immediately open the app drawer to see what I mean.

Certainly not a knock on the kernel...I really like em! It just "feels" different. Maybe it's in my head LOL

Don't get me wrong, I'm definitely not advocating flashing ROMs without wiping. I know the possible consequences and that its my own fault if it screws up.
In fact, I will probably be reinstalling everything the correct way tomorrow because I am seeing weird little bits of lagging. Nothing serious, but I just want to nip it in the bud now.

What kernel does this install by default with the theme? Because I'm getting like 200 points less on Quadrant and nothing is different from before, minus the kernel.

Kernel will directly affect those scores - the faster your DROID is OCd the better the score.

I think it installs a default 800 MHz kernel, but I am not sure right now - if you have already installed the ROM, and have SetCPU, open it up (without flashing a new kernel) and see what the max speed is that you can set - and there is your answer.

When you install the LFY 1.5 ROM...you get a install "splash screen" that shows graphics...not a notable feature for the ROM itself...but pretty cool looking (I have no idea how they make those graphics using keyboard characters) LOL

Yep, it's an 800MHz kernel that is very capable. You could stick with that stock kernel ESPECIALLY if battery life is a top priority.

Yeah, I just checked its a Slayher 800mhz one. Thing is, the previous one I had was from LfY1.4 (which wasn't altered in any way) and it was getting 200 points more on Quadrant. I've never OC'd my droid before, so anything that was from 1.4 default is what I was using. So any reason why the kernel from default before was reaching in the 1000's on Quadrant, but this specific one is only getting in the 800's without OC'ing and around 1115 when overclocked to 800mhz?

Here is the biggest problem with not "properly" wiping/formatting before loading a ROM....

If you do have a weird issue...you do not know if it is an installation problem or an "actual" issue with a ROM or app. I like to be CERTAIN that it's not an installation problem.

Umm, is it possible that the 1.4 was already default at 800? Even if SetCPU was not set to run it at 800, I believe (gosh, I am sounding wishy washy all fo a sudden!) that Pete's BB included a kernel that was 'programmed' (for lack of a better word) in the system to always run at specific speeds - so it could be that 1.4 was always set to run at 800, and thus you're actually seeing a speed increase now....

Ok, thanks for all this. Just new to the whole SetCPU thing and don't know much about setting these profiles up. Only reason I never bothered with it before.

That is a whole different animal. Those profiles are very powerful, but also very confusing. When I get some time this weekend, I can post my settings, but there is a thread somewhere in the rooted section about exactly that - search SetCPU profile in All About Root forum.

I think they are very powerful too and save you lots of battery life and make your phone perform better when needed as well

I should have clarified - confusing to someone seeing them for the first time.

I have my profiles set and I love my settings lol....

So i used a script to remove it and tryed to add a launcher pro that was the actaul one but it won't let me install it because it says (This is a system aplication. Do you still want to replace it? all previous data will be saved) then it says installation failed . So umm how do i remove the launcher pro or is there a patch taht makes it pro ??????

after running the script, you have to reboot the phone so it realizes that LP is no longer installed.

Hey - I was once in your shoes. The first time I ever removed a system app I struggled for like an hour trying to figure out why it could not install. I didn't get an answer anywhere (mainly b/c I didn't ask anywhere but one place - I am too hard headed and hell-bent on figuring things out myself) and in frustration I reboot - and it magically worked.

I put 2 and 2 together and tried it with another app, and it worked only after reboot - and thus my idea was coalesced in my head.

I mean, this is my first smart phone ever....

you didn't need to purchase the pro version...just to use the LP widgets or be able to resize the widgets (bad idea to do this anyway).
