    LiQuID FroZeN YoGurT v1.9 (BLACK LIQUID EDITION) is now available in ROM Manager and here http://android.markjohnston.us/DL/LFY/ (with tons of theme options).

    Stock is a simple black bar type theme, with a slayher 1100mhz kernel. I've been running it since Thursday and so far, for me, it's flawless. Incredibly fast and smooth, lots of features!

  2. downloading now will see how this goes, never tried a LFY rom. is this based of 2.2.1?

    So far everything is going smooth, downloaded, installed no hitches. Restoring apps through the TIBU that comes with it is nice saves a small step.

    app reinstalling seems to be a little faster than other roms, so far cant find any issues with the rom, its nice and fast.

    on an unrelated note, ill definately be changing the boot up, too ugly and low res. :p

    25min to download/install/restore not bad at all!

    Yes, it's a source ROM based on the latest Froyo version (FRG83 2.2.21), with the latest Google apps. Titanium Backup is loaded with the ROM, to make restoration easy.

    Are there any problems updating apps that are in system (like Launcherpro)? I know with Ultimate Droid, Launcherpro was already included as the default launcher and I (and others) had problems updating it. Had to either take it out of the app folder before flashing and temporarily replace it with something else or use Tibu and some other stuff to get it to update properly.

    I don't use Launcher Pro, so I don't really know the answer to your question; however, should it become necessary to remove Launcher Pro from /system/app in order to update, Liquid Tweaks has a System Applications function that makes it easy to remove.
     
  7. Love this rom! Superfast and stable! No bugs.....A+++

    I think it may actually be SLV.
     
  10. i may need to use a different kernel, my phone doesnt like ULV kernels if it is one.

    ULV kernels don't work for me either, but the 1100 included in this ROM is awesome for me, and uberstable. Just try it and see.
     
  12. What is a good recommended OC/UC setting?
     
  13. so far after 3 some odd hours of use, ive had zero issues. no reboots (other than one at my fault)

    Welp ... I'm back to LFY. 1.9 blows 1.7 away, I can already tell that (at least on my DROID). I came from UD 1.0.0. Loved it, but was missing the LED notifications. Glad to see that they work in LFY 1.9, not that I was expecting any differently.

    A few comments...
    • Easy install (no surprise)
    • LEDs work (with the screen on or off ... YES!) :cool:
    • Smooth
    • Stock kernel seems good so far
    • Battery life is yet to be determined
    • THE UGLIEST BOOT ANIMATION I HAVE EVER SEEN! EMBARRASSING! :eek: (easy to delete tho)

    Yeah, I always change the boot animation, anyway. All the themes have different boot animations, and, although I know you have your own, messenger, there are a lot of really nice ones here: http://androidforums.com/liquid0624/191668-my-new-boot-animations.html.

    It's the FIRST thing I did. Yikes! God awful.
    Using Root Explorer, navigate to system > media. Tap the "Mount R/W" button at the top, long-press the bootanimation.zip file and DELETE!

    HTH

    I stopped using my custom animations months ago. Frankly, I like NO boot animation. Faster boot times ... that's all I care about. ;)

    does anyone know how i can replace the phone.apk in lfy with that of another rom, say, UD? or any other rom that has a transparent dialer/contacts.
     
  21. havent been able to give it a full test but battery life seems kinda crappy. I was down to 40% after 5 hours of moderate/heavy usage. (streaming music over bluetooth) wheres as on UD 1.0 this would maybe take 20% of my battery off. I'll be giving it a full test tomorow see how well it hold up from a full charge. also, anyway to change the color of the battery icon on the revolution theme? i cant stand the white percentage text over white battery icon

    this rom is super fast, runs great with 1100 slayher kernal...

    BUT, not having the power control from CM is an absolute deal breaker for me...shame!

    Ok, I must be a total moron but I've been looking around to find how to tweak this ROM and I can't seem to find it. In UD 1.0 it was nice that everything was in the settings option.

    Please point out the obvious to me and help me make this the best rom that I've used...Thanks!

    There's an app in your app tray called Liquid Tweaks.
