I just checked my camera and all is functioning fine. Probably is not the rom if it works on one phone and not another?

I don't have any problems with my camera (still or video) either.

Hmm..weird. I have no idea how it got that way and no idea why I can't change it. Anyone know how it could even happen?

Thumbs up Review - Liquid Frozen Yogurt 1.71

Review - Liquid Frozen Yogurt 1.71 - Sorry for being late to the party

Installation & Setup
As usual, LFY comes with Titanium Backup pre-installed (which I love!). So I passed the initial log-in and let TiBU restore my apps and system data. I then signed into Google and my Gmail and Contacts would not sync. I had to go to settings – accounts and sync – and go to the Google account. Contact and Gmail were not checked. Simply check them and problem solved. LFY has always been an easy ROM to setup, largely because they include TiBU pre-installed. I was up and running in about 40 minutes.

Speed & Performance
I felt that stock kernel handled very well. I easily could’ve kept it but I ended up flashing the Slayher 1.7 1100SLV. Performance was fantastic for me for the first 3-4 days. On day 5, I started to notice some slowdown. A reboot fixed the slowdown but it began to happen so often that I would end up rebooting several times per day. I do not believe this is the experience felt by the general community. Many praise LFY 1.71 for its performance, so I believe there must be some issue in my setup or a reflash is in order.

The Slayher kernel performed very well for me on Interactive, but I ended up going back to Performance by day 3. I get really frustrated whenever my phone (or computer) stalls or hangs. My main concern is speed, even at the expense of battery. Speaking of battery, I felt LFY 1.71 probably had the best battery life out of the ‘fast’ ROMs, which was no surprise to me. But if you do want to prolonged battery life, run the kernel on Interactive. Its really a great medium between speed and battery conservation. LFY 1.71 is definitely one of the highest performing ROMs in terms of performance. I know this is a goal of the Liquid team and they achieve it in nearly every iteration.

Slayher 1.7 1100LV
Short Bench: 181
Long Bench: 455
Quadrant: 1572

Features
We got features!!! Many of us bring up our love for features in these threads and the Liquid team was listening. They’ve added a customization application aptly called “Liquid Tweaks”. Some of the features it includes is a built in CPU Governor, the ability to change the colors in the notification pulldown, LEDs blink even when the screen is on, auto brightness tweaks, rotary lock option!, and lockscreen music controls to name a few. I really feel that the addition of these features pushes LFY above the ‘fast ROM’ niche to a ROM that competes with the all around best. To all ROMs, the same sheriff is in town, but he bought some new guns

Themes
As usual, Liquid and his team release every ROM with a number of themes available. LFY 1.71 currently has at least 10 high quality themes available for download. My current theme of choice is rEVOlution, lovin it!


Conclusion
LFY1.71 is a great experience to add to your phone. For me, it did have a few bugs such as some slow down and maybe 2 reboots, but I attribute the slowdown to user error as this is not what is typically experienced with this ROM. This build in particular (I feel) is a special build. I always felt the Liquid team was very capable and this current build solidifies the team in arguably the top 3 best dev teams working on the OG Droid. I may start using a 1-10 ranking system because 1-5 does not allow me to be accurate enough. If LFY 1.6 was an 8/10, then 1.71 is a 9/10, with exception to my slowdowns, it was simply perfect. I’ll divide the 9/10 in half so the score corresponds to past scores, giving this bad boy a 4.5/5.

Overall Rating: 4.5/5

Note: Scores will now be out of ten instead of 5. I will divide the scores in half so that they correspond to the RRI.

Default Themes

I upgraded to 1.7 through rom manager with no problems. My issue is when i go to change themes (blueberry, invertino, ect ect. It comes up to where the boot image that changes to DROID then stars then DOES. It eventually goes to the eye then back to DROID then DOES and continues the DROID DOES with the stars in the background and just loops unless i pull the battery. I tried wiping data and cache wich resulted in a force close when the phone boots up and says touch the android to continune? Any ideas whats going on?

First of all let me say, Great work guys! Love the new rom and themes. I loaded the Revolution theme and all is working well but have a question. Is there a way to change fonts in email or messaging? Are all the themes the same? Didn't want to change themes just yet. Wanted to get pleasure out of this one first.

Keep up the good work.

One alternative, at least for messaging, is to use Handcent, for which there are tons of fonts available. I know of no way to change email fonts without changing the entire system fonts.

If you want to change system fonts, there are tons of fonts available here: 71 Flashable Font Packs - Change your system fonts - xda-developers.

I know these fonts are for the EVO 4G, but I've tested 7 of them myself without any problems -- BUT what I did to make sure there weren't any problems is to open the zip archive (don't extract or otherwise unzip the zip file) for each of them that you want to try and delete the last two listed fonts (which aren't on the Droid) -- in other words, delete gcsh00d-hkscs.ttf and ucsh00d_c.ttf and then flash the font zip file just like a theme, without wiping.

It's a good idea to make a backup before you try any of these.

Thanks for the input. Just updated from 1.6 w/Tangerine theme and thought maybe it was different. These old eyes don't see as good as they used to.

Just followed your directions and downloaded a font, removed those 2 files, backed up and voila! I can see again. Thanks again for your help.

Liquid, et al.: I have flashed 1.7, followed by 1.71 and restored Swype manually, then did the TiBu restore. All seems to be going well, except that every time the phone reboots, I am forced to re-accept a couple of apps that request permission - gTasks and Google Voice.

Anyone else experiencing this issue?

I haven't had this problem once. I think it only asked me one time in the very beginning.

Has anyone had trouble installing the Twitter update from the market? It will download but fails to install. I have Twitter already but think it's the built in app.

I know what my issue was - I had not performed a proper reboot, and was only rebooting when swapping batteries - so it kept asking until I performed a proper reboot.

As for Twitter - yes, same problem since the second I installed it. I suspect that Twitter is not set up for being run from System space, and thus will not allow you to apply updates to it. Other apps do allow that, and thus I think it is a Twitter problem.

I suppose, though, that now would be a good time to clamor for an update to 1.72 replacing apps installed in /system with the latest versions....

I def think that the out of ten system would more accurately reflect a proper grading for ROMs. I think I will copy your approach, and just round up when grading in the poll.

Also, it's great to see someone else getting their mug out there for people to throw darts at. lol

OK, got a question. using the stock LFY 1.71, all is good, going to play with kernels later on. however, I have a question, or 2 or three.

First of all, I see the Liquid's tweaks things, and that is pretty kewl - but I want a darkened notification bar and the like as is seen in Smoked for LFY, but I want the Widgets to remain as they are now, not rounded and shined up and all that.

What's gonna be the easiest way for me to import just the modified notification bar from SLFY?

Guys, I have a question. I don't think it's specific to this ROM, probably more the result of the higher speed kernel. But I was on a longer trip this weekend using the Navigation and even though I had the droid plugged in, it continued to discharge (i.e. battery was discharging faster than it could charge). By the time of my destination, I was down to 30% and the phone was fairly hot.

Anyone else experience this? Do I just manually need to crank down the max speed so that it's not working so hard? Or just drive slower? TIA.

I would download the smoked theme zip, open it, and delete all of the apps out of it. Or even delete the entire app folder so that nothing app related is flashed, only framework changes.

LOL, if driving slower doesn't work, I would do exactly what you suggested and manually lower your clock speed when using the navigation for an extended period of time. I usually drop mine to 600MHz. Besides draining the battery, it can overheating and subsequent reboots. It has happened to me. Getting reboots while using navigation is just about the worst time to reboot. I've gone way off course because of it. No one likes a 10 mile u-turn

I am really enjoying this ROM and plan to donate as soon as funds allow.

The only thing I dislike is the new black theme for the Facebook app. Actually, dislike is too weak. I hates it. Any way to restore it to the original dark text on white?

Use TiBackup to delete the Facebook app, reboot, then download Facebook from the market.

Default Recently flashed v1.7, having a few issues...

I just recently and finally flashed v1.7, been on it for only 2 days now and I am experiencing an awful lot of FCs with LP, and on the kernel 1.7 is flashed with I am experiencing HEAT like as if I was using one that could really push my phone to the max!

I am considering reflashing and wiping 3x instead of 1x like I did this last flash...usually, I will wipe 3x!!

Anyone else having similar issues like this??

I am considering reflashing and wiping 3x instead of 1x like I did this last flash...usually, I will wipe 3x!!

Anyone else having similar issues like this??

Hmm..I haven't had this issue so I haven't searched for a way to fix it. Is your LP updated to the most recent version? Sometimes when you restore an older app, it won't talk well with the new ROM. Also, when you're restoring from TiBu, make sure you only restore app and app data, never system data. That will more than likely cause issues.

Also, might help to check your LP settings. In Preferences, under General Settings, make sure to check "Keep in Memory". Then go to Advanced Settings and hit "Memory Usage Settings". From there, I have checked "Use homescreen caches", "Build caches as needed", and Prevent force-closes". Next, back out to the main LP settings (preferences) and "Restart LauncerPro". See if this helps.

Just found something interesting.
I was cleaning up my image folders on the SD card and came across the 'liquid_wallpapers' folder. Nice, it has backgrounds for all the different themes.
Problem is, all the files in that folder are corrupt. None of them will open on the phone or on my PC in PS. Does anyone have a link to good copies of these?

EDIT:
Never mind, extracted them from the .zip

Default Decay?

Many praise LFY 1.71 for its performance, so I believe there must be some issue in my setup or a reflash is in order.
I have been experiencing this slow down too. It feels a lot like the OS decay seen in at least older versions of Windows. Anyone have ideas on where to start experimenting to isolate and fix whatever is causing it? I'd rather figure out what is going on rather than just re-flashing, though of course I realize I may need to go that route at some point.

--I followed GLDs guide to flashing the ROM.
--Specifically, I'm seeing screen redraws and an overall slowdown across the board
--I have not disabled compcache (maybe I should try this? I see the instructions in this thread)
--What other info is relevant/necessary?

TIA!

{UPDATE #1}
Followed GLDs advice below (thanks!). Immediate result is a huge improvement back to what appears to be fresh install performance. Everything nice and snappy again. I'll report back by updating this post in a week or two since last time it took a while to decay to the point where it was a noticeable problem. I am updating this post so all the info ends up in one place.

{UPDATE #2}
One week has passed. My phone is still snappy and shows no signs of the decay/slowness I saw previously. Will report back only if it changes.

Yes, follow my instructions to disable compcache (Liquid Frozen Yogurt v1.71 (FRG83 Built From Source!!! Get It While Its HOT!!!)). I've completely disabled it on mine, for the same reason -- over time I was seeing more and more lag.

As soon as I disabled compcache (and also went into the Advanced menu in ClockworkMod recovery and wiped Dalvik cache -- don't worry, it rebuilds itself in short order, with just the stuff it needs), and used Samsonite801's redraw fix (http://androidforums.com/liquid0624/192140-liquid-frozen-yogurt-v1-71-frg83-built-source-get-while-its-hot-2.html#post1707077), I started seeing the awesome smokin' fast, no redraw performance again -- and it's continued for the last couple of weeks since I disabled it.

If its a stupid question or already answered then I couldn't find it.

There's been very lil going on in the ROM world lately and with a pretty hectic schedule the past couple weeks (aside from working multiple jobs, the majority of my friends and family seem to be born in the month of October...really is only one thing to do on a cold January night, apparently), I haven't been able to flash another ROM. And yanno what, that's a good thing. I didn't just give this ROM my first ever 5 because I have given LFY some bad reviews in the past, but b/c this truly is a great ROM. It's now been a full two weeks and counting and this is still the best running ROM I've had on my Droid, both performance-wise and battery life.

GLD had told me about the Samsonite fix the first night I flashed this ROM, so maybe that's why, but I've not had any reduction in performance. This is def a first, as every ROM I ever flashed (that I had on long enough to tell) has had diminished performance eventually.

The only prob is my damn camera. I have no idea what's caused it or how to fix it. It's stuck in negative mode and I can't change it. Yanno how you swipe from the left side and you can change the settings? I can't. They're not in menu, either.

If no one knows a fix, is there a better camera app that maybe I could install? Might like it better anyway. I never actually considered it. Think I'll pose that question in the Droid forums, too.

Hmmm, might give that a try. I wasn't sure how to go about achieving this at first, but it must be because I have stopped screwing around with the innards of my phone in the last several months....lol.

You could try removing your camera app, rebooting, extracting the camera app from the base ROM, and putting it on your phone, and rebooting again....

I need some help. I have LFY and it is constantly freezing requiring me to do a battery pull, and often I have to do several before it becomes usable. I notice that there are times it will FC for ADW or launcher and when I click to force close it just freezes. Rather frustrating considering I have really like the LFY roms.....i'm guessing there is something I did wrong, but just not sure what? Bad files?

Yes I have the most current version, in fact, I completely started fresh...no backups restored, no TiBu restored, nothing and i'm experiencing these things! Now what you said in your second paragraph might help...I never used the "Keep in Memory" feature because of the warning label it comes with but, I have utilized that feature now and all other sections you mentioned are checked...I'll see how this goes over the next 24hrs or so, thanks bro!

This happened to me too. I did report it to Google when the prompt came up to do that. It cleared up in a day. Then it did it again once. Now it is OK again for the last several days. I have no idea if it is related to the Blueberry theme, but I've been running this theme since I flashed 1.71 when it first came out and did not have any problems with Gmail until recently. Hopefully they are cleared up and were just an unrelated anomaly!

Well, unfortunately it has not worked...im just going to reflash and follow GLDs "How to" and see if that was the cause of it (just a bad flash) but this time I am wiping 3x! I'll let you know how it goes, hopefully all will be good!

Hi hi, new to this, but successful with most of it. I had a bunch of questions, but narrowed it down to two, if anyone can help.

1. In the instructions.txt When you say reboot into recovery (clockworkmod) do you mean something like the "Droid X Recovery Bootstrap?"

and 2. Do I have to be deodexed, or does this deodex? I have gotten ROM Manager and was pretty much following the directions on this thread All-One-Guide to Rooting, Deodexing, and Installing a Custom ROM/Theme (And How to Unbrick Droid X) , but I don't think I want that theme. Liquid obviously seems to be the way to go.

In all fairness, while not much, I donated around a week ago (give or take a few days) to both you and LiquidzGrl. Came out so, so I'm sure it went through.

Everyone should support their fav Devs for their continued effort and development.

How about sending the file to those who have donated?

On second thought I guess the file would be too large anyway. Come on folks, donate! Based on this forum alone there should be at least 39 people who should shell out a few dollars.
