Liberty ROM Installation help


  1. LanguidLegend

    OK so I have an Android X (version 2.2.1) and using Titanium Backup, I somehow accidentally uninstalled my Text Messaging 2.2.1 app and havent been receiving texts since. I found out that installing a new ROM would reinstall it for me, and decided on Liberty. So I installed the Liberty Toolbox from the Android Market, and selected Download then Install, and it reboot. However, I cannot notice a difference at all after the reboot..
    I've also had this same issue with installing other ROMs via the ROM Manager as well.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Does the Text Messaging app appear in your app drawer?

    You could try downloading an alternative app like Handcent. See if that fixes your problem.

    once you download the liberty 2.0 rom (IF ROM MANAGER JUST REBOOTS THE PHONE WITHOUT INSTALLING THE ROM)
    open droid x bootstrapper
    Reboot Recovery
    Install Zip from SD Card
    choose zip from sdcard
    and go to the liberty folder that was created when you downloaded from the toolbox
    open the Roms, folder
    and download the file thats there
    should be doubleox.zip
    and when its done installing go back to main menu of bootstrap recovery by hitting your back button, and reboot phone
    you can them open the tool box back up (if your text messaging app isnt reinstalled) (which it should be)
    and go to Rom Manager (from the Liberty Toolbox(Dontated))
    and select download rom, scroll passed the rom, and the fc fix, and the themes, and all your apps will be listed there, and download the one you are missing

    IF installing the liberty rom didnt fix your issue

    Ok, so I decided just to do a hard reset (held Power & Home buttons, then selected "wipe data/factory reset"), just to start new from scratch (and hopefully my Text Messaging would be back).
    However, now when I boot my phone up and unlock it, all I see is a blank (black) screen, and none of the buttons seem to do anything.. The only thing that seems to work is 1) receiving calls, 2) the web browser (via voice command), and 3) the pull-down notifications window (which is pretty much empty).

    Why is this?? Is there a way to re-install the stock ROM?

    Because you deleted certain system apps, a restore that way is not possible IIRC. If you want flash the SBF and you can start from scratch.

    Or if I were you, I'd follow the directions posted above and play with Liberty.

    The text messaging app didn't appear in your app drawer? Or downloading an alternative didn't fix your problem? Or both?

    Would it not matter either way after the reset from recovery?

    A factory reset doesn't replace things that are missing. It only wipes the user data.

    The question is whether he's just missing the application to access his SMS messages, or if he has some kind of system problem.

    if he followed the directions i listed above, he would be fixed by now :p now we got a new situation to work out lol

    Seems like both. I already had the Handcent app at the time I uninstalled the Text Messaging app, and I've tested it by sending myself a text message but didn't receive it.

    Well before this whole system problem cropped up, I was able to access my old SMS messages via Handcent, just couldn't seem to send/receive further messages.

    -----
    Well I followed the instructions (I found via a Google search) for flashing using SBF: 1) Downloaded the Motorola USB driver (MotoHelper_2.0.40_Driver_4.9.0.exe), RSD Lite 4.9 (RSD_Lite_49.zip) and the SBF file (VRZ_MB810_2.3.15_1FF_01.sbf), then 2)turned off Android, plugged in the USB to my Windows 7 computer, and booted into the bootstrapper menu. And then 3) I opened RSD Lite as Administrator and selected the SBF file, but the Start button remains inactive.

    luckily you havent flashed this file yet, as its not the one you need to flash!

    you need to flash 2.3.320 or 2.3.340

    i dont know where the files are, i would upload them, but since im at work, i dont have access to my files at home, hopefully though someone will load it for you, or give you the correct link!

    No... never saw anything about that. When in the process do I do this, and what does it do?
  16. LanguidLegend

    Ooh, so thats the bootloader... I always thought the bootloader menu was the one you get when you hold the home+power button down.

    no bud its not, but do not, i repeat *DO NOT* sbf 2.3.15 only sbf 2.3.320 or 2.3.340

    Don't worry, I downloaded the one you specified, and loaded it into the RSD Lite program, connected the USB, but same problem- Start button is grayed out..

    hrm that is quite strange, restart your pc, dont run rsd lite in admin mode, just open it, reload the sbf file, and clock show my device, and see if it works then


    and you installed the most current of moto drivers?
  20. LanguidLegend

    LanguidLegend Member

    OK, all fixed!
    I just went into the command prompt and entered:
    Code (Text):
    1. SDL -f VRZ_MB810_2.3.34_1FF_01.sbf -t 2
    and it ran :D

    Thank you for all your help Saint!

    Sorry, but while I still have you, can you help me with my original problem real quick? When you said install ZIP from sdcard, which zip file?

    when you install the new liberty 2.0 *note you have to purchase the donate version of the liberty toolbox from the market*

    once yo download the rom if it doesnt install from the rom manager toolbox
    if you go to droid x bootstrapper and when you look for the file to install, go to the liberty folder
    look in roms
    and its labeled doubleox.zip
    it wont say zip i dont think, just doubleox

    Ok, I installed Liberty via the bootstrapper, but then it rebooted and got stuck on the LIBERTY boot screen (with the rotating logo) for over an hour so I just restored my previous ROM backup.
    What went wrong?
  23. VoidedSaint

    VoidedSaint Resident Ninja VIP Member

    did you wipe data and cache first?
  24. LanguidLegend

    LanguidLegend Member

    Yea, wiped the data&cache and the install went through. I'm trying to access the Liberty Settings, but keep getting the message: "sorry, the application settings com.android.settings has stopped unexpectedly".
