    I am running Liberty 1.5, just put in my gmail account info and it is down loading it.

    Good job, now what are your plans?

    Possibly a new launcher app ( ADW, GoLauncher, Launcher Pro), or many of the themes that are available?

    This forum is great, just keep asking questions :D

    I already have Go Launcher and LPP and Widget locker. I am going to play with some of the themes tomorrow. This is pretty cool being able to do this stuff.

    Did you know you can export your LPP settings, then import them when you install a new rom?

    I had quit using LPP due to numerous issues with force closing and shutting down of my phone. I switched to Go Launcher EX and they went away. I did backup my GL set up and restored it once I had Liberty up and running. It brought most of the screens back to where I had them.

    Should I run a back up again now that I have Liberty installed?

    I came from Liberty to Focused early this week. I think I backed it up about 4 times since then (deleting old ones). I suspect I've got everything setup now. Before the last backup, I setup a 3rd email acct, updated the camera and yesterday updated the dialer and contacts.

    If you install a theme (like I did tonight), you'll want to go back to no theme before trying another.

    Here's my recommendations:

    • Get rooted.
    • Install recovery.
    • Install rom manager.
    • Install Titanium Backup, open it and press the menu button, select batch and make a backup of "all apps + all data".
    • Open recovery (DroidX bootstrap), tap the top button, should say you were give supervisor permission, followed by success. Tap the second button to go into recovery. Vol up/down button moves cursor, back button goes to previous screen, camera button does what the cursor is highlighted. Select return and press camera button.
    • Open rom manager and create a backup. Call it stock_02-12-2011 (don't use spaces). Make sure the backup completes. Should take a couple minutes. If it reboots right away, it did not work.

    If you don't like a new rom, boot into recovery or open rom manager and restore your previous backup.

    so if i am running liberty 1.5, it will replace that as a new "Rom"?

    If you're on a custom rom (like liberty), and intend to install a new one, you want to wipe data/wipe cache, which gets rid of your current rom.

    These days it's rare to see a rom that doesn't require that.
