    Thats a lot of reserved space there...I'm curious what you're working on Liquid...:D

    You know I'm all over this. I'll flash it tonight and do my review thing. The change log looks promising! Thanks for the update!

    I really liked this theme and ROM in v 1.1 but I had market issues. Tomorrow I am going to try again and see if my market issues are resolved.

    Flashed and running now, Smoked Froyo looks nice, very subtle dark theme. Running smoothly @ stock 800mhz AND the market issues I had with v1.1 appear to be fixed... review in the morning.

    Awesome ROM so far, great jorb Liquid!

    Liquid, I have a request :)

    Can you produce more kernels in higher speeds? Right now I am testing your ROM and I'm running the stock kernel. I don't know if it is the performance tweaks in your ROM or the kernel...but it is VERY smooth at 800MHz. Going higher doesn't even seem necessary...but I'd love to try a 1.0, 1.1 and/or 1.2 GHz version of the kernel you and JRummy made for this. It's impressive thus far!

    I did try the Chevy's kernels you provided and although I can normally run his LV kernels...I can't get past the "M" logo when installing any of his kernels.

    Well Jrummy is away right now i would highly recommend some p3 droid kernels for those speeds i really like the 125 - 1000 standard voltage one tested that last night produced some insanse benchmarks for me and is just really fast all the way around

    Liquid Frozen Yogurt v1.2
    Loaded on 8/3/10

    - Initial setup worked much better on this release than on v1.1. All market apps restored very quickly (within 10 minutes with WiFi on...56 market apps).
    - Market was slow after that when I'd actually go into the market the first few times but it has sped up since then. It now takes about 10 seconds after launching the market app, for the main screen to load. Seems a little slower than some ROMs but not a big deal and could reflect the Market being bogged down....
    - 800MHz kernel feels very fluid and the lowest SetCPU short benchmark was 228! The fastest long benchmark achieved was 635. Quadrant second test was 1066. SetCPU profiles are set to 800MHz Max/125MHz Min and I'm using on-demand scaling with Pete's SetCPU advanced settings (32000, 50, 0, 0).
    - Launcher Pro usually lags for the first second on most ROMs running @ 1.2 if on-demand scaling is used. Rarely seeing any lag with this release and the best word to describe how smooth Launcher Pro feels is "Shocking" when you consider it's running at 800Mhz!
    - This ROM uses the "Sapphire" type shutdown/reboot menu and this is a good thing! That is the way it should be on every ROM including on the CyanogenMod ROMs...Only my opinion but it just makes more sense having the option to shutdown, reboot, or reboot into recovery all in one place.
    - Loaded the Blueberry theme and it looks really nice. Very well integrated and some people will be turned off by how much blue is actually used but as with v1.1 it is very well integrated into the ROM and looks professionally done. The Twitter widget was not themed while the Facebook widget was (which I thought was strange but no big deal). Facebook was ready for an update so I updated so at least both widgets (which I keep on one screen) "matched" each other better. Anymore I could care less about those apps being themed cause I hate dealing with the updates and the widgets being unthemed.
    - Tried Chevy's LV kernels that were provided in the release notes for this ROM. Chevy's 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2GHz LV kernels caused a boot loop for me and I couldn't get past the "M" logo.
    - Loaded P3Droid's LV 1.2GHz kernel and booted without issue. Rom seems to be blazing along at this point. I have "auto rotate" turned off but when I slide the keyboard open, the screens are redrawn very quickly and I can start to swipe through my homescreens in about one second. Closing the keyboard and going back to landscape is just as fast. Some ROMs have made me wait for 10-15 seconds before Launcher Pro would allow me to swipe after changing orientation. Very nice to have this work so quickly!
    - Benchmarks with P3Droid's 1.2GHz kernel is as follows: SetCPU short test 158, SetCPU long test 418 (I hit 418 twice but average score was around 460),
    - I did try to load Jake's kernels and both 1.2 and the 1.0 GHz kernel were too unstable to use. The phone would boot but then reboot soon after getting to the lock screen. Pity too...I was hoping to compare some of the benchmarks I have had with that kernel and other ROMs. Those kernels work on some ROMs and not others. I do not hold this ROM at fault for the kernels that would not load. Plenty of kernels with different voltages and speeds were provided and that is more than sufficient. But you may want to keep the 800MHz and just enjoy some crazy good battery life! 800MHz would be sufficient for most users using this ROM...it is smooth!
    - Battery life with the P3Droid's 1.2GHz LV kernel provided in the release notes has been kind to my battery as well. It has been 6 hours since I took it off the charger, been playing with the phone off and on all morning, and still showing 80% battery life...not too bad considering my usage today. I even made a backup of the ROM today before flashing any new kernels.

    I reviewed version 1.1 of this ROM and gave it a 3 out of 5 because of the issues that ROM had (market issues were the bigest problem). I said that if those issues were fixed, it would be a 4 or even possibly a 5. When I think of the "BEST" custom ROMs available...the ROMs that come to mind are Bugless Beast, CyanogenMod, and whatever JRummy is cooking up (Kangerade, Lithium Mod...source build, modified Moto ROMs, etc.)

    I'm going to add a 4th to that list! I can't find any bugs, hick-ups, FC's, etc....this ROM also has plenty of additional features and most importantly speed...all while providing good battery life. I don't know how I could score it any differently....I'm very curious to see what others will say about this ROM! I personally think it's brilliant!

    Final Score: 5 out of 5

    No problem...thanks for fixing the issues with the Market. :D I knew that 1.1 was a winner (minus some of the little bugs)...and it's good to be right. That 800MHz kernel is amazing! Really felt much faster than most people would think!

    I know you were working your butt off to get that working. I'll donate a few bucks to support the cause and ensure future releases ;) ;)

    Really great job on this!

    A promising new ROM line that is off to a great start.

    Stock looks with nice theme options so far. The stock theme has some added transparency, battery percentage in notification bar and an absence of Launcher2, more on that later

    Sorry Liquid...I forgot to add the poll to this release (even though I closed the other one). Oops. I now have added the poll as well as my vote! :D

    UBRocked VZW Nexus Please!!!

    Wadsface...nice review and funny too :D. I didn't think about the possible drawbacks of having the launchers in the system (with the updates) but the redraws were incredible! So fast, so smooth...better than anything I have tested to date. Not being able to easily update ADW or LP is not a big deal especially considering what you get in return.

    I hope more people try this ROM and post their comments...I think Liquid does a great job of taking the best of everything available and then optimizing it to produce a really fast, solid ROM.

    Team LP FTW! Haha!

    With LP Pro being a system app on this ROM how does that affect those of us who have the paid version for the widgets?

    remove the included version using the script rmlauncherpro in a terminal emulator and then install the paid version from a backup or the market :)
