Liberty ROM 1.5 Released for DROID X/2

I’ve been running Liberty ROM 1.0 since day one, so when JRummy, Kejar and the boys dropped 1.5 last night our week became instantly awesome.  They’ve added the ability to overclock through the toolbox, fixed all bugs, and removed even more Blur.  This version is as clean as it gets, so jump on it now DX users.  Oh, you can finally have that new Liberty wallpaper that I’ve been sporting for the last couple of weeks courtesy of davekover.   

Download DROID X:  LibertyX-1.5.zip (alt link)

Download DROID 2:  Liberty2-1.5.zip (alt link)


*Wiping data/cache recommended even if coming from 1.0.

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 LibertyX-1.5.zip, select it and hit “yes.”
10.  Your phone will apply the ROM. When it finishes, reboot and enjoy!

    This is all that and a bag of chips. My first ROM and it went as smooth as possible. I used Z4 to root, Koush Boot Recovery for backup. I am using the Watermarked theme and it is amazing. The only thing I have found that doesn’t work is “No Speed Dial” and the display doesn’t rotate when making a phone call in car dock. Do not hesitate to get this you will not be sorry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Holmesrr79

    The only negative is a big one for me. You can’t push video through the HDMI 🙁

  • Javier

    Hi, I’m very new to Android and I’ll like to know if the Droid 2 ROM can be used on D2 Global? I think it should, but I don’t want to assume things 😛

    Thanks in advance

  • Warren Peace

    I’ve been wanting to run Liberty from the beginning but since it’s blur-less there is NO HDMI capabilities. My girlfriend would be a very unhappy camper if I lost the ability to bring home movies!

    • You can add blur elements back to the phone via the Liberty Tool Box, I cant speak specifically towards the HDMI capability though.

      • Warren Peace

        As far as my research goes, HDMI cannot be added back. I’m sure someone will develop it tho!

        • Anonymous

          I think the HDMI functionality is dependent on having the Blur gallery. I’m running apex right now so I can’t really say for sure, but if you reinstall the blur gallery (is this possible via the toolbox?) then you should be able to use HDMI out.

  • Vinzky

    can i flash the thunderbold boot animation on this rom…thanks for any info.

    • Yes you can flash the thunderbolt boot animation if you have the file.

      • Vinzky

        it does work and also I flashed the honeycomb boot logo and works just fine too.

  • Droidchevere

    I wouldnt say all of the bugs but face it…… Way better than MOTOBLOAT!!!

  • Mehoo

    I know I’m probably alone on this.. but I was running 30.04 and when i installed this and rebooted my phone i was stuck at the “Liberty” logo and all access to clockwork was gone. I had to SBF. I did everything to a T, and made sure the zip file wasn’t corrupted (because the first download was)

  • Jdjdjd

    Wont download … Why?????

  • Dan

    I lost my swype keyboard after I flashed the ROM and I can’t seem to change back…is this normal for Liberty?

    • Dan

      Never mind found out its installed…went to a text field, long press, input method, and selected swype.

    • RickX93277

      Nope, You just have to turn it back on. Long press on the text area and it should give you the option to select input method (ie reg keyboard, swype, gingerbread keyboard)

  • Ozyman666

    Made the switch and I’m loving it so far, except two issues:
    – I can now not take pictures with the stock camera. The camera indicates a picture was taken, but there is a blank in the gallery where it should be.
    – The ringtones I created and had previously used now don’t work.

    Any help on either of there issues would be appreciated.

    • Ozyman666

      Anybody? The pictures are writing as 0 kilobytes.

  • Dangineering

    Quick question for the group…I am running FlyX 0.1 Final (as I have been since September because it is simple and stable) and I am ready to move on. I understand I’m a few versions behind, but I really want to get this ROM. What would be the best way to get there… unroot and OTA update or use leaks and other ROMs to update to where I need to be to have Liberty?


    • I would say your safest bet is to unroot and OTA. But your OTA might not work if you deleted any bloatware. But if you just backed it up to another folder then I would say put it back in the APPS folder and attempt to initiate the OTA after unrooting. Truthfully I was able to OTA update with root.

      There is also a flash-able zip that can return you to a stock 2.2.1(340) with no root and all bloatware.

      With that though you would have to actually reactivate your phone (no biggie really)

    Market is no longer showing my downloaded apps….anyone?

    • You entered in your gmail when you first got into the liberty Rom?

  • Dklinko3

    Does this fix the the talk to txt

  • BrianK16

    Go to the Liberty toolbox and download the blur camera and you will get the blur camera back. Awesome!

  • Skeetch79

    I have never loaded ROMs on my phone before and I want to try the Liberty 1.5 ROM. I am rooted and Running stock 2.2.1 on my DX. I will use Titanium Backup to backup all my app and system data, then bootstrap recovery and boot into Clockwork Recovery. From there I know how to backup my phone, wipe data and cache and install the Liberty from the ZIP on my SD card. But if I wish to revert back to stock 2.2.1 how would I go about doing this? What is the step-wise process? Thanks!

  • Anyone had the issue of Liberty setting in your Main settings causing a FC?

    • John

      nope not yet

      • yeah if you didnt get it right off the back your good, Im gonna go completely stock, re-root, and try liberty 1.5 (a bit drastic but I just realized I deleted some bloatware and didnt back it up)

    • I went completely no root stock with maderstcok – OTA 2.3.340. zRoot-Bootstrap-Backup-Wipe. Then I flashed Liberty 1.5 and it works like a charm.

    • I went completely no root stock with maderstcok – OTA 2.3.340. zRoot-Bootstrap-Backup-Wipe. Then I flashed Liberty 1.5 and it works like a charm.

    • Grr I didn’t have this at the beginning, but then I goofed around, restored to my previous ROM and back to Liberty 1.5 and now I’m getting FC every time.

      Guess I’ll try wiping it clean again…

  • Chadwick17

    OMG! Why was I so hesitant to root before?!! This is amazing! First time rooting/flashing ROM ever – it was pretty simple after spending an hour or so online reading up on it. I’m never going back!

  • Dakiidalvii

    when i install the rom does it delete all my contacta and stuff?

    • Make sure before you wipe you have your contacts automatically backed up to google. Should be an option in accounts. Also you may want to invest in a backup app. One that will not only back up apps but their individual settings..

  • John

    in this Libery ROM, is there any way to toggle color of top right notification bar indicators? or is it always yellow?

    • antintyty

      look in the tooolbox for the themes…it changes everything that is yellow.

      • John

        thx man

      • Depends on your theme

  • RonsterWVU

    JRummy16, great job! 😀 The added picture previews for the theme’s, and the battery 10% ability… They are great!

  • maciquatl

    Awesome rom except for camera function, it is using droid 1 template…dont like it please give us an alternate

    • Briank16

      Go to the Liberty toolbox and download the blur camera and you will get the blur camera back.

    I’ve been talking about DARKSLIDE 4.2 ROM for Quite awhile and hope people have heard me. I think THE ULTIMATE ROM WOULD BE IF THE LIBERTY TEAM AND THE DARKSLIDE TEAM MERGE. Believe if they did… and made the ulitmate rom featuring complete functionality it would be PRO.

    The biggest thing I HATE ABOUT LIBERTY IS: Notification bar, NO BATTERY %, and the Notification is yellow…. CAN WE PLEASE SEE AN OPTION TO CUSTOMIZE THE NOTIFICATION BAR? Darkslide Team+Liberty team = THE ULTIMATE ROM!

    • Djspikezz

      I change my mind, just saw that Liberty even has a built in theme changer that’s PRO!! GO Liberty!! 🙂

  • fkntwizted

    Where is dlna?

    Updated to 1.5… even faster. Motorola should hire these guys.

  • Went super smoothly for me – started from 1.0, wiped everything and loaded 1.5 just beautifully. Titanium is a lifesaver, too. All set up how I want it again already….this may have actually been the simplest ROM flash I’ve ever had…it booted right up without me holding my breath and corssing my fingers for five minutes, etc.

  • Flashed the ROM, apps and data restored with TB, running smooth! Thanks JRummy, Kejar and Team Liberty!!

    This is the best thing I ever did to my X.

  • Wmsco51

    Wipe removes everything

    • Yes, so you will want to run a full ‘backup apps and data’ in Titanium Backup (PRO) to backup everything to SD before you go wipe the data and install the ROM.

      • Balagiwithak

        I tried to re-flash and still have the same problem? Anyone have an idea?

    • Rdkustoms4710

      You need to be on the right system version. 2.3.15 will not work.

  • Justin Hollender

    Anyone know if this can be installed on a Droid 2 Global? We need some love too.

  • Uncle Paul

    How is this compared to Rubix 1.9.7?>
