    ***** ROM Reviews *****

    Review by YankeeDudeL
    Let me start this off by saying, and I'm sure Liquid has been waiting for this, YES!!

    Initial Setup:
    Still the quickest boot, and I really like the new boot ani. And my fav boot ani now comes in multiple colors. Apps restored rather quickly, but as I flashed before the 1.71 patch came out, many apps didn't restore. Not a major issue as most of us have TiBu.

    Appearance:
    Pretty much a stock theme until you flash one of the many theme options, and there's pretty much a look for everyone. Also get a few added wallpapers and LauncherPro docks to complete the look.

    Performance:
    I know now why this is called Liquid Frozen Yogurt. Because this ROM is so fluid, you can swim through it. The very first ROM Liquid put out was super fast, just really buggy. This baby copies that fluidity and has ironed out any of the previous bugs. My Droid has never been smoother.

    For whatever reason, I'm not getting great benchmarks with this. But yanno what, who cares? The real world application is what matters and there's nary a hiccup. What really amazes me is that I'm only running at 800MHz and there's no need whatsoever to OC any higher. The only lag I experieced were backing out of an app while something else was going on, and there's not much that any Dev can do about that as that's the limit of having 256mb of RAM.

    Goodies:
    Yanno what goes great on frozen yogurt? Lots of goodies sprinkled on top. And ladies and gents, we have goodies! Look for an app called Liquid Tweaks that give you the ability to customize the notification colors, lockscreen, music controls, and the ability to use CPU scaling. It's not quite the level of CyanogenMod or Ultimate Droid, but these are all steps in the right direction and enough to satiate most users hunger.

    App and System Function:
    I had some FC's on certain apps, but after fixing permissions there is nothing wrong with this ROM. Nothing. That never happens.

    Battery has been running nice and cool for me (well, after the initial setup, anyway). While mostly stagnant with very lil work, the battery went a full 24 hours before I got the 15% "connect your charger" message. That in and of itself is the best I've experienced since going to 2.2. I really worked her today and after 6 hours I'm down to 40%. Yesterday, with normal use, I was able to go all day without worrying about needing to charge.

    Overview:
    If you wanted to nitpick, you could point out everything that CM or UD has and the ease of which you can customize. Sure, I'd like some more customizations like easy font changing, but everything this ROM already has is done right and without issue. Simply put, there's just nothing wrong with this ROM. And as much as I tried to talk myself out of it, I'm going to do something I have yet to do since RRS's inception:

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

    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

    I've been running the Rom for a couple hours now. Crazy quick. Running the Slayer 1k LV kernel and having great speed out of it. Will be checking the battery usage tomorrow after I'm done playing with it. :) Downloading the Galaxy theme right now and hopefully will be flashing that in 20 minutes or so.

    Gonna grab it from this thread. Also, I don't know if it's just me but selecting LFY from ROM Manager just links to Slayher's kernels. /shrug

    I see that under Liquid Tweaks there is the performance section. Does this or can it replace SetCPU all together? Should SetCPU be used at the same time? Should it be uninstalled from the system?

    If you are currently running lfy v1.6 do you need to clear cache and reformat or can you just flash it?

    There was a thread on another forum that said Yes, you will need to do a clean wipe...

    Flashing now. By the way, noticed during the install that it said "Installing Goodies". I'm getting excited.
  14. GirLuvsDroid

    GirLuvsDroid Well-Known Member


    The "Goodies" are some extras (wallpapers and LP and BW skins) on your SD card.
  15. YankeeDudeL

    YankeeDudeL Well-Known Member

    Are the wallpapers and docks in that themer's pack?

    I'm using it to handle my CPU scaling without SetCPU. If you want to use SetCPU, however, you can certainly do so.

    By the way, if the CPU scaling in Liquid Tweaks doesn't work for you (you can check it by running the cpuinfo script), then here's the fix. Go into Terminal Emulator and type:

    su
    sysrw
    chmod 0755 /etc/init.d/01cpufreq

    The go into Liquid Tweaks and uncheck CPU frequency scaling and recheck it, then set your sliders and reboot. Again, you can check to see if it's working by using the cpuinfo script.

    Ah, thanks. Have to hunt them down.

    Folks, Liquid is working on an update zip that has a market fix, as well as a fix for the battery percentages, as well as a couple of other tweaks. Just be patient -- he knows about these issues and is addressing them.

    Well...I had just done all of my backups and came here to DL 1.7, then saw this post. Guess I'll wait a little longer.
  20. GirLuvsDroid

    GirLuvsDroid Well-Known Member

    If I were you, I'd go ahead and install. The update I was referring to is a tiny little update file with a few tweaks in it. The market is mostly fine, it's just that the fingerprint is FRG83, so not all of your apps may show up in the market, but they restore from TiBu completely fine. You don't really have to redo anything when you install this little update (I know because I tested it).

    Holy crap this rom is fast. That's 400 points faster than 1.6 on my phone. And I'm just running the standard kernel.

    Quick question: I'm running the liquid themed version, which I believe is the standard version, correct? Is there anyway to get the Facebok app to not be themed in black?

    this ROM is amazing, i can live with out the market fix for the tradeoff of how fast and smoothe it is running.
  24. GirLuvsDroid
