    Ok I am a noob to Custom ROMs, I am rooted. I have done all the back ups with TI and Clockwork and have down loaded Liberty to my SD Card.

    I feel like I know what to do but I want to know what will happen after install? Will I have to re-activate my phone and reset up my Google accounts and then will everything like apps install? Also will I use TI to bring things back as well?

    Just want to know what will happen after I do this.

    after you install you will have to resign into your google account just like if the phone was out of the box
    then once thats done open the market and your apps will auto restore through the google cloud ,you will just start seeing them pop up ,,,this takes about 5 min and goes faster on wifi of course.(there have been reports of liberty causing issues with auto app restore)
    now for whatever apps dont restore if thats an issue you can restore them through tibu or through the market you remember which one it is
    for app data you can selectively restore this through tibu as well but i advice against doing this unless necessary for you since it can cause issues,,,,you wipe data for a reason and it should not always be restored, although some would disagree with me.I like to just start fresh and clean with my apps after flashing a new rom in fact i dont use tibu at all i let them auto restore then start fresh
    then redo homescreens etc and your back up and running:D
