Sweet! Been checking here constantly for a few days. Looking forward to the themes being uploaded. My phone just doesn't look right without Watermark'd theme on it.

Glad everyone is enjoying things. DO NOT use 1.7 stuff with 1.8 it will cause issues poosibly boot loops. Contact theme devolpers to port their themes I will no longer be doing so. As far as themes from us I have something awesome planned and currently being worked on so stay tuned in and check back here every few days or for updates... Facebook sync does work and is controlled by accounts and sync under settings and not using facebook app

Very excited about this. I've said it a bunch of times already, but I'll say it again: LFYv1.7(1) was the best ROM I've flashed on my Droid. Can't wait to see what the new version offers. Wish I woulda saw this yesterday, coulda used the orange theme.

Yeah 1.8 rocks. I ran it stock til yesterday when I tried the 1250 kernal which caused a bootloop. Running 1200 no problems.
This time I am keeping my system light only going after the apps. that I can't live without. So far I got 150 mb's open.

I've flashed this rom twice, wiping each time. Can't seem to get google to redownload all the installed apps, it did sync my contacts, but that's it. Odd...

If I go to the market and look at the list of downloaded apps it only shows the ones I've purchased and the ones native to the rom as being installed, doesn't show any of the other ones....

Same here. I prefer TiBu myself to get my apps back to their most recent state, but I understand there's some that don't use the app.

So, if I install the new version right now, will I be stuck with the Halloween theme, or is this the stock theme?

Thanks.

Stuck with the halloween theme until themes show up This wasn't clear, but that's what backups are for, just flashed back to my good ole 1.71 until a vanilla 1.8 is released...

Never really tried TIBu, but I like to start fresh each time a new rom comes out. Launcher Pro and Tasker let me save the profiles, now if we could get setCPU to do the same, or maybe that's where TIBu comes in?

As for the apps, I just let google repush them, that works pretty good so far..

So, has anyone contacted Sewart1champ about porting over Watermark'd to 1.8? It's by far my favorite theme, so until it's available on this version, I'll be sticking with v1.71.

I thought it might be worthwhile to post the steps I use to wipe and restore data with new ROM installs again in this thread. I'm assuming you already know how to install the ROM itself (and if you don't, there's an installation guide link in the OP, which I'm reproducing here for your convenience: http://android.markjohnston.us/DL/LFY/RNOTES/installation.txt).

First of all, I ALWAYS wipe and start clean when downloading a new ROM. I even wiped when I installed the release version of 1.8, from the 1.8c test version. It takes a little extra time and effort, but it's so worth it in the problems you avoid.

Here's how I do it:

1. Purchase the license for Titanium Backup (TiBu) if you don't already have it -- it's worth it -- and go to Batch and use "Backup all user apps + system data."

2. Do a nandroid backup of your current setup, then, using ClockworkMod Recovery, do a factory reset (wipe data and cache), then go into the partitions menu and do a wipe of boot, then of system (even though 1.8 will wipe system and boot for you, I do it myself anyway).

3. Install the ROM zip file.

4. Touch the top left, then the top right, then the bottom right, then the bottom left (in a square pattern) of the screen to skip Google sign in.

5. Make sure you have "Unknown sources" checked in System>Applications.

6. Open TiBu and go into Preferences and make sure you have "Force to same location" checked (this will then make sure your apps and data are restored to the device and SD card, as applicable, exactly as they were when you did your backup).

7. Go into Batch and and start with "Restore missing apps + all system data" -- but here's the important thing: press "Deselect all" and ONLY check the items in GREEN (this will restore all your call log, SMS/MMS, accounts, wifi and bluetooth connections, etc.). If you restore the stuff in red, you're restoring system data from prior ROMs, which could cause you all kinds of issues. We'll do apps and data in the next step. NOW, if you're going from 1.71 to 1.8, here's another very important caveat: do NOT restore [SETTINGS/BLUETOOTH] Settings Storage 2.2.1 from "Restore missing apps + all system data" because this will cause FCs in the SpareParts settings in Liquid Tweaks (it's really weird, because restoring that item restored all the Liquid Tweaks data from 1.71, including my color choices in Interface and the data that caused the FCs in SpareParts). Don't worry, Google will restore your bluetooth settings when you sign in. Also, I found out the hard way that the same advice I give here, for going from 1.71 to 1.8, also applies when going from 1.71 or 1.8 to 1.9. I also recently discovered that restoring [SETTINGS/BLUETOOTH] Settings Storage 2.2.1, even coming from another ROM, can cause other issues (for example, if you had a password (PIN) to unlock your phone when you did your TiBu backup and you restore this setting on your new ROM, you may find yourself completely locked out after you set your password on your new ROM and you reboot -- which means that you'd have to wipe and start over again). One additional thing: you won't see some of your data (call log, SMS/MMS, etc.) until after a reboot -- I generally wait until Step 10 when I need to reboot to make my backup anyway, but it's certainly fine for you to go ahead and reboot now if you want to ensure that all your data is there.

8. After you've finished restoring the items in green (other than the one in my caveat above if you're going from 1.71 to 1.8), run "Restore missing apps with data" (these will all be missing items that are in white text) and go through the list and make sure you've got only the items you really want to restore checked. DON'T restore Liquid Tweaks or Spare Parts if they're on your list.

9. Go to Settings>Accounts & sync, Add account and sign in to Google. Make sure Auto-sync is checked and that Sync Contacts, Sync Gmail and Sync Calendar, etc. are checked, and allow them to sync. It's possible that the Accounts restore in Step 7 already restored your account, but you should still look to be sure all your items are checked.

10. Make a nandroid backup of this setup BEFORE you start adding themes and kernels -- that way, it's easy to revert back to stock and start over if a theme or kernel messes you up.

If you run across any apps that restore from Market without your data, because you missed them in your TiBu restore, just go into TiBu and go to filters, type the name of the app, and restore data only.

The only thing left is that you'll likely have to set up your widgets again (at least I do in Sweeter Home 2) and you may have to restore some of your ringtones in contacts, Gmail, calendar and Gtalk.

One other note: if you have Swype, I've found that TiBu restore doesn't work right. If you have the official beta version that you're reinstalling from the Swype beta website, you'll want to reinstall the Swype installer, then Swype FIRST, before your full TiBu restore, to avoid the memory issues that plague Swype installs.

Mmmm....I just installed the 1.8c over the 1.71 (no wipe) and then themed it with galaxy and it seems to be fine? As a matter of fact it is slicker than snot. (can I say snot on this board?)

Well, if you haven't seen any issues, then you shouldn't buy trouble (in other words, you're probably fine). BUT, if you have any issues, you probably need to look to your installation method first. Also, as you may see above, Liquid recommended that you not install 1.7 themes over 1.8.

Nope, you're not the only one. I've never been a fan of black and orange as it is. But ever since the SF Giants knocked my Phillies out of the playoffs I really dislike that color combo.

Me too. Fortunately, 1.71 is so great that I don't feel any great compulsion to upgrade right away! Kudos to Liquid for such a great ROM.

Yep! I am content to wait for the goods, since I am certain they will be amazing as usual.

So why do i continue to make ROMs if you people aren't going to use the latest one? There will be no vanilla version of the ROM anymore since majority of you like the black bar better. Colors i may have something in the works but its gonna take a bit to perfect it.

I won't use the latest one unless its a vanilla version

I haven't used any themes at all on any of your roms, I like the standard android version without any themes or color tweaks. I like plain and fast. Sounds like i'm a minority, but I would guess theres more out there than you think?

I was just hoping for the release of a "vanilla" version of your ROM so that Watermark'd might be made available to it (by the developer of the theme as you suggested in an earlier post). But I'm certainly open to other themes that you might release. For versions 1.4 and 1.5 I used your Blueberry theme. I'm just really enjoying Watermark'd right now. Since rooting I've not used a "vanilla" version of any ROM I've used. I do not like the blinding white status bar. I think the reason many of us are "waiting" is because we're not fans of a black and orange theme. I can't wait to use v1.8. I check on here multiple times each day hoping more themes have been released for this version. I do not like black and orange, so I'm willing to stick with v1.71 (since it's pretty much near perfect on my phone) until more options with your newest version are released.

Thanks for your wonderful work, Liquid.

If someone wants to port Watermark'd, then it can be ported over the H2O themed version of the ROM. I know this because I ported my own theme to v1.8, over the H2O theme.

When I rooted mine, the H2O ver. was out. I wish I could find somewhere to DL some of the themes for 1.7 so I could try them out! Also, I love the keyboard in 1.8 and wish I could find out which it is...

no need to be testy. i simply dislike the black and orange and im afraid that some orange remnants will carry over to the next theme. i have always downloaded the vanilla versions and made a nandroid backup before applying themes.

I am guessing that Liquid looked at the number of downloads and can figure out what is popular as far as themes. I would think it is tedious to keep updating the themes. I have been able to flash the 1.7 themes over 1.8 without a problem (well one, the icon for voice search and voice dial are both orange in the app tray) but Liquid says beware. Unfortunatly the stock download is not a seperate theme. I am looking forward to the new theme when it comes out. Heck we can always run 1.71 with the stock theme...nothing wrong with it.

I tried a clean install just to have the Halloween version and the apps would not come up. I could not even get the market to add them manually. It worked fine when I wiped over 1.71 though.

Hey twisted, didn't think of doing just a wipeover install, but its fixed my fb sync issues.

My d1 must be a weird one because I did the install to the t from your instructions, and had both the market issue and the fb sync issue. I had tried adding the fb account through accounts & sync. If I had already logged into fb, it would just go back to accounts & sync w/o adding it. If I wasn't logged in it would take me to the fb app to log in, but still wouldn't sync after login.

Quick q, when I slide my keyboard it unlocks, that a new feature?

Edit: And just found out Facebook for android is upgraded to 1.4. LoL

Great rom! I switched over from Bugless beast v5. The battery life is actually better. I thought I would hold my comment until I started using it more. It's about a 20-30% increase in battery life. I'm even running the VR tunnel live wallpaper now. Granted I have it set like before. (advanced task manager auto kill/set cpu screen off 400-250)

I don't really like the orange theme to much and I hope you will release some themes soon. It works great for me! Thank you for releasing this great rom!

Default What's the scoop on LFY 1.8?

I like to flash LFY roms with no themes. (if you come out with purple, i'll rethink that.). Question - what might motivate me to upgrade from 1.7? What are the great new improvements & features? I read the stuff in the first post of the thread but that didn't really answer my question. I knew I wanted to go to 1.7 from 1.6 to fix speed issues and it did. But I'm not sure why I might want to upgrade again. Nudge me anyone?

Hey man, get off your high horse. I know its my first post, but I have to say you seem to be a little arrogant and maybe frustrated. Go have a beer or five. LFY 1.71 was and is great, but why did you remove all links to the themes for that rom? I love your work, but you seem to be a little bit of an ass. Good luck with your future adventures.

Cool

I was poking around ROM Manager and found GFlam Live Wire theme lists LFY 1.8 as a supported ROM. Thinking about trying it. Anyone try it yet?

I agree with the general sentiment I'm reading in this thread that the Halloween theme isn't a great choice for a default. It is pretty in your face, though I suppose many themes are. If most seem to like black bar -- well, this isn't it. This is just offered as one user/fan's opinion.

Like @Amrov, I'm looking for compelling reasons to move from 1.71 to 1.8. I read the changelog and didn't see anything jump out. I wonder if it may simply be too early for 1.8. I think what we might be seeing is that the changes are too slight to warrant a new version. It sounds like there are some pretty cool features coming and the bugs are being worked out now. To me, THAT sounds like a reason to upgrade!

Of course, many who root like to try the latest and greatest. That's why I am probably going to try 1.8 now anyway!

A few people over at DF have tried it, and have reported that the theme fixes issues with automatic brightness and FB sync not working. If you want to wait, Liquid is working on a patch for those issues, as well as a couple of new themes.

Liquid0624...Don't listen to this guy. None of us who truly appreciate your hard work and dedication think anything negative about you. You do not seem arrogant or like an ass to me at all. I love what you do and look forward to the patches and new themes that GirLuvsDroid is referring to.

I don't think he is arrogant or frustrated. He just tweeked the rom and probably did not feel like going through the tedium of tweeking all the themes. It has to get old after a while. Lets all wait and see what he comes up with via the new theme. There are plenty of vanilla, smoked and watermarked themed roms out there as it is.

Hello all,

As I previously mentioned, the Market didn't sync for me, either. Not the biggest deal if you have TiBu (and just about everyone does, and prefers it). I was having the FB sync issues as well. I kept getting the authentication error, which was quite annoying. Signing in solved the prob, but would get the same message after a while, and every time I rebooted. One more issue, I couldn't get Weather Widget to work, just keep getting N/A. This does happen from time to time when I flash a new ROM, but usually fixing permissions or updating Busybox (I don't know why that's helped, but it has) does the trick, which it did not.

I kept it for about 24 hours before went back to 1.71. Wasn't completely intolerable, just was lazy and new I wouldn't get a chance to get back to it for a while. Was hoping to see Watermark'd or some cool new theme available by now, but I think we're all hoping someone else contacts these themers. All gravy, I know it's coming. 1.71 was so awesome, it's not really a step back while we all wait for 1.8 to be at full force.
