DROID X ROM: Liberty by Kejar and JRummy

Two beasts in the DROID ROM community partnered up to release something new that I’ll be recommending for all Droid X and Droid 2 owners.  The ROM is called Liberty and it comes from Kejar31 and one of our all time favs, JRummy16.  The base for this beauty is Kejar’s GummyJar ROM and then has Rummy’s toolbox and tweaks written all over it.  You’ll find goodies like the old school rotary lockscreen, Gingerbread themed Swype, custom wallpapers, and seriously, so much more.  For fans of yellow, this is also a nice replacement for the Gingerbread green we’ve seen everywhere.  

Download for DX:  LibertyX-1.0.zip

Download for D2:  Liberty2-1.0.zip

__________________________________

Instructions:

*Your DX needs to be running .320 or .340.

1.  You obviously have to be rooted.  (Instructions)
2.  You need to have Koush’s Bootstrap Recovery.
3.  Open the DX Bootstrap and “boostrap” the recovery.
4.  When that finishes, “reboot recovery.”
5.  Once your phone boots to Clockwork Recovery, scroll down to “backup and restore.”
6.  Choose “backup” to make a clean backup of your phone.
7.  After that choose “wipe data/factory reset” to wipe your phone.
8.  When that finishes choose “install zip from SD card.”
9.  Then “choose zip from SD card” and find the Liberty1.0.zip, select it and hit “yes.”
10.  Your phone will apply the ROM. When it finishes, reboot and enjoy!

    is the lock screen smooth? on the stock droid x its very laggy.

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      Yes. It’s AOSP. Not blur.

    I have a quick question, why must you wipe your phone to proceed?

  • http://twitter.com/Bretth5324 Brett Henderson

    currently switching from ApeX now

    • Gotti

      Let me know what you think, I night do the same

      • http://twitter.com/Bretth5324 Brett Henderson

        i really like the ROM. Lots of customization, i would reccomend switching but use titanium backup becuase i lost all of my apps :(

        • Firelight

          I definitely 2nd this. I *did* do a Titanium backup and it worked perfectly. Enjoying the different themes (using Revolution Remix now) and the fast speed & crazy-cool animations.

      • http://www.facebook.com/5.second.minute Kit Tihonovich

        I chose ApeX because of it’s bits o’ blur…
        And I’ll (apparently) stick with it for that reason.

        I used Liberty for a couple hours…and just couldn’t force myself to like not having “contact quick tasks” and the Blur gallery…nor the Blur camera…or messenger…
        It was nice…but nothing extraordinary.
        I found myself going back to the gingerbread theme anyway…so my choice was pretty much made…switch back to apex.

        • M1ghtysauc3

          Um all of those things can be added on from within the rom. Guess you should try playing around with a rom before giving up.

          • Anonymous

            You are saying you can add “contact quick tasks”? Or how about blur email?

            Perhaps you should also play around with the rom to know that some things are not there to add to the rom. :)

          • KleenDroid

            Oops, I apologize… those items are there. The list was not fully on my initial install but upon further investigation they have everything out there as an option for install. So if there is something you want that isn’t there, you can simply add it on! M1ghtysauc3 was correct!

        • Tarsis Brito

          a lot of people dont like a little bit of blur but i do that’s why apex it is the best for me i thought this on has those things i am staying with apex also

    • Tarsis Brito

      did u have problem switching from apex when i am trying to install it days installation aborted do you know why this is happening?

  • Vinzky

    i have a question..i just did a backup using koush bootsrap 2 days ago and installed the gingerbread theme this afternoon…do i have to backup again or go straight to step 7 if I want to get this ROM…thanks guys!

    best rom no comparison. i thought nothing could be faster then rubix 1.9.5….but, this is. also with so many features…10+ themes, fonts, boot logos, animations, zipalign system and data apks at boot options, clear cache at boot option, fix permissions at boot options, change notification bar text……EVERYTHING and still the fastest

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      lol I changed my notifications bar text to –”DROID FTW!!! :)”–

      haha im loving this rom. never been able to do that with any other rom i had so far.

      • Yo momma like it

        how did you change the notifi text?

        • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

          From the Liberty toolbox. Its in liberty mods.

    • Djspikezz

      you like that.. you should try off of ROM MANAGER : DrewGaren’s Lexlite 2.0 freakin super smooth and fast. Or BlackSlide 4.2

      • Anonymous

        Mind pointing out whats good about it? Besides speed since everyone seems to brag about their Mflops and yada yada, lol.

  • http://www.facebook.com/objection89 Miguel Angel Portela

    Where can we find that lovely Swype?

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      In Liberty ROM of course.. duh?

      • http://www.facebook.com/objection89 Miguel Angel Portela

        Actually, I meant an APK for OG Droid

  • Anonymous

    I’d really like to switch to this but am not too excited about the prospect of having to download everything again. I know I’m, pretty ignorant on the topic but how necessary is step 7, “wipe data/factory reset?” If I do this is there a way to get back everything that has been downloaded without doing it one at a time?

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      My Backup Pro lets you backup your apps and their data, and info like texts and bookmarks.its what i use and the reason why i never mind wiping. lol

      • Anonymous

        Whenever I install a new ROM, the apps automatically start downloading. How do you prevent that?

  • Jbrez2468

    well im stuck , i have done roms before , never had prob i followed ins , but now im stuck on the spinning liberty logo , i fig i could restore and try again but when i try to reboot recovery mannualy , i get a black screen says bootloader err and a few oth er things help please!!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      did you wipe data from whatever ROM you were coming from?

  • Cgmartin33

    Damn it…just when I was saying to myself Apex is the Sh!t and I love my current set up JR’s got to drop this one on my lap. PS let talk data throttling please? Big topic not being discussed here yet.

  • mkgyvr

    These guys really put together something great. Highly recommend running this ROM.

  • Djspikezz

    Kellex, Thank you for featuring a ROM… it’s been awhile!! You should give DrewGaren’s LexLite 2.0 a try freaking awesome!!!

    Also a ROM you can check out thats sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet Like 989 ROM but WAY BETTER… Called DarkSlide 4.2

    • Anonymous

      DarkSlide is the most underrated, amazing rom out there. It just needs good themes and I’ll go back to it but for now GumJar has turned my life turn around :D!

      • Anonymous

        Use Metamorph to tweak the icons. Droidpirate.com has a bunch of options to choose from. I changed out the Bluetooth, 3G, signal bars, battery icon, and the lock sliders. Now DarkSlide 4.2 looks as good it runs.

        • Anonymous

          That site looks promising. Can’t believe I’ve never stumbled on it before, thanks!

        • Droid

          I fucked up my phone when using metamorph and Droidpirate.com Helped me do it by saying things like this theme works for the droid X and made everything blank no Text and texts came in blank and shit its fucked my phone So i booted liberty its great…

    • Anonymous

      Yes Darkslide is the cats meow! I like that you can choose it with or without Blur, and it’s blazing fast.

      Liberty is very nice and allows you to add some Blur components if you like.

  • Anonymous

    Liberty is a perfect name for an Android ROM… In light of all of the fruity news lately, it’s good to be reminded that we’re not in iJail! Thanks JRummy, Kejar and Dr. Droid! :-)

    PS: iFans don’t try this at home.

    • pir800

      in all fairness you need to root your phone and applying this rom is not supported or recommended by verizon or motorola, so we are still technically in “iJail” as you put it. That said, why don’t they make a real gingerbread rom?

      • Adamsik

        lmao bro where far from having to boot tehtered (IPAD/Iphone4/gen 3 and up ipods)…. Shoot windows 7 you have to hack(work around) to have FULL admin rights witch is hella harder to do then one click z4root.. lol

  • Draggerlane

    Im not impressed at all all the rims I have tried since I have rooted my x sux either the doesn’t work or its laggy or it works fine but theme options sux. The only rom the is remotrlely cool is tranquility. That rom has at least options you can change things but still buggy as heck. Ill stick to stock root thankyou very much. But I do appricaite the revs and there efforts on all these rims they do. But one request to the devs. Make a rom that everything is different. Somthing that has never been done before just an idea to throw out there.

    • http://twitter.com/azurikai Austin Witherow

      you obviously haven’t done something right, all of the ROM’s i’ve tested are NO where near laggy or buggy. & there are a TON of theme options on XDA, Droidforums, and all over the place. you obviously haven’t looked.

    how does this compare with Fission? team defuse has been on top of their sh*t, so its hard to switch, unless this is totally better.

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      i think its totally better.

      • http://twitter.com/azurikai Austin Witherow

      Been using Fission for a long time and I definitely like Liberty more.

    Droid 2 Global? No? Dang…
