[ROM][07.13.11] Liquid Gingerbread v2.3 Release
Saw this rom getting some love on other forums. I'm wondering if anyone here has tried it out yet and what their impressions are. It looks like the CM7 fixes are included but I'd love to hear about the actual functionality of the rom and what is/isn't working. Thanks!
I'm running it right now. I haven't had any issues or FC's at all. It's fast and the battery life is decent. There are a ton of customizing options but I haven't messed with them yet. I would recommed giving it a try.
I'm moving this for you for real .
I merged the two threads as well.
I used to run Liquid when I had my original Droid, It's a great rom, and the dev is always updating and staying on top of things. I would definitely suggest trying this out.
I would......(But my DX is sitting in the desk while my Inc2 is loving CM7 )
Definitely surprised to see that Liquid is now on the DX.
there are quite a few roms on the DX now, ever since the 2init we been seeing a wide range of roms come our way
I've been running it since Friday and have had no issues whatsoever. Super fast, no unexpected reboots and the camera pops up instantly. Everything works right out of the box; camera, video, navigation, etc. Battery was draining pretty quickly until I realized I still had the .12 radio. Flashed the .07 and it's leveled out to nearly what it was running Moto's GB. I've ran different themes, changed up the boot animation and haven't had anything negative happen. I don't see myself going to another rom for a while. I highly recommend it, but who the hell am I?
I like it. Only thing is in the liquid settings under goodies, I can't get it to change the mms and camera apps. They stay the same.
So battery life is good, right?
After straightening out the radio issue my battery life seems a-ok.
So what's the verdict on this Rom?
Not that great for me. Same as most GB builds though.
I would still be on ssx if it had this type of battery life. I would say this is faster than apex with almost kinda same battery life.
I agree. I've tried different roms but always ended up going back to rooted, deodexed GB because it simply worked. This rom is fast, customizable and everything works without having to add patches.
I never had any issues with ApeX, and CM7 is running pretty good for me too, even battery life isn't all that bad as people make it seem.
I never had any issues with Apex, either. There were certain functionalities that weren't there that I had become accustomed to on the stock rom that made me go back. I froze all of the bloat and was using the V6 script but it still bogged and had redraws but I lived with it. Now, as you know using CM7, my phone is fast as hell, there aren't any redraws and everything works the way it should. But it all comes down to what works for you and your personal preferences. I've been wanting to jump ship to CM7 but a lot of the stories on the different forums kept me away. When I saw what people were saying about Liquid I said screw it and jumped in and am glad I did.
I think I am going to end up taking the plunge tonight and flashing liquid. Just to be sure, this needs to be flashed over rooted froyo? Since I am currently on stock gb, I will have to sbf to .340 then root and boot into recovery, wipe cache data and davlik, and then just flash the zip off the sd? Do I need to be in clockword recovery or is stock recovery okay? TIA.
Yeah, flash over rooted Froyo. Sbf back to .340, root, go into Clockwork and wipe cache, data and davlik. Then apply the zip while your'e in there, stock recovery won't work. After you boot up make sure you've got the .07 radio not the .12. If you do have the .12 I recommend flashing the .07 in recovery as the .12 ate my battery alive. If you need the .07 let me know and I can PM it to you.
Where can I get themes for this?
[UPDATE 7-19-11] Theme Chooser Themes - Over 180 Themes! - New Format! - New Thread! - xda-developers
All of the CM7 themes will work with this rom as it's CM7 based. The post after the theme list has some cool add-ons that will completely theme out other stuff that doesn't get changed within a theme.
(Steven shakes his head and asks himself what has happened to himself. He no longer flashes everything that comes down the pike. I guess he's waiting for functionality?)
You're the reason I wouldn't touch CM7! Like you, I need whatever rom I'm using to actually work and this one does. No bs.
Can you shoot that .07 radio over to me? If I install Liquid while on .12 (which is what I have now) will I still be able to just install the .07 radio zip later if the .12 isn't working for me?
