    I installed Liberty 2.0.1 today (coming from DarkSlide 4.2) and after rebooting noticed my phone seemed to be much warmer on the bottom of the phone. It felt really warm on the front lcd side, on the sides, and on the back. Is this normal? I did run Droid Overclock and set the max cpu speed to 1 ghz and min to 350 mhz (in case there was any kind of built in overclocking in Liberty) and that still did not seem to help any. I didn't have a lot of time to play with it and restored back to DarkSlide 4.2 and my phone felt normal cool temp again.

    Does Liberty 2.x run warmer?

    I have also ran into this same issue. I also ran the Droid Overclock as well to try and eleviate the issue. It seemed to almost make my problem worse.

    I restored my Liberty ROM back to normal though and it seemed to cure the heat issue.

    I haven't tried the new Liberty, but I noticed my phone got a lot warmer when I started to run Gingerbread.

    when you flashed Liberty 2.0 did you do a clean wipe afterwards, so that all your apps had to re download and all of that jazz, and you had to re sync with Google? If so then that is a possible reason for your phone heating up. Mine has gotten warm several times but mostly when its re syncing with everything after a flash of a new Rom or build. I never really worried about it. I think i pulled the battery the first time it did it because it freaked me out but since then i just said screw it. Also i have never OC'ed mine.

    Yep, I completely wiped everything clean. So, that could have been what was causing it...the syncing and everything installing and updating. I flashed back to DarkSlide 4.2 last night and made a nandroid backup of my new Liberty 2.0 installation before doing so. I flashed back to Liberty today, since I have more time to play with it, and no heat issues today. Only negative I see is the bad battery life again with Liberty. Been off charger about 6 - 7 hours and down to 60%. With DarkSlide I would still be at 80 - 90%. Looks like they were not able to fix the battery issues from the previous Liberty rom's.
