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)

Instructions:

*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!

    when i added this rom everything works great but my camera and camcorder. It acts like im taking a picture but then it shows a black screen.

  • Generalkenobi_2

    The link is dead. Where can I find the liberty rom?

  • Colton Roberts

     I have a droidx and i just rooted after a long time of trying to decide but now i don’t understand the whole rom thing can this liberty rom brick my phone and also im not sure of how to do it a video would be nice to watch but i can’t find any Help would be nice thanks 

    • http://twitter.com/SoporteFreak Freaks Inc

      This ROM aint any more likely to brick your phone than other ROMS. Actually, it aint ROMs that brick phones, its the whole rooting process. But at this point, and for Droid 2s and Xs; bricking is NOT likely.
      PM me (thats my Twitter account) if you need any help (you probably should try out the latest Liberty release, 2.0.1; or if youre willing to go Beta; the new Liberty GingerBread 0.5

  • Jason

    I did everything right and seemed to all go as planned and now its stuck on the liberty symbol with the spinning bird, I can’t get it to do anything else….. what do I do now?

    • Chrisyeager12

      Same problem

  • hillbillfill

    i cant install the themes … help!!!

    Epic. Worked perfectly, super clean, really fast on Droid 2. @FLATBED you have to do as the instructions say. Unless it says you can use ROM Manager, DONT. I learned that the hard way with my Droid 1. Firs try a wipe, if that does not work, SBF back to stock (or stable 2.2) remove the Liberty ROM from SD and try again, just follow the instructions to the T ok.

  • FLATBED

    i downloaded this rom and installed it with rom manager but i cant get past the bootscreen, i need help.

  • Kenailes

    Anyone have battery issues with liberty 1.5 on a DX? Spare parts is reporting that wi-fi is just bleeding the battery.

    • Silentrunner05

      Not that I am aware of…I was getting 2 days on one charge….

      • spatak

        yeah, today was bad. my battery was down to 30% by lunch time. Checked facebook and twitter a few times, read an email or 2, few texts. nothing out of the ordinary with my routine.

          I used the Liberty ROMs Application Manager to manage my memory and tasks that were running. I also had a few other app managers running too…The best one I have used so is called, Automatic Task Killer. I also set something that I was able to manage how much RAM was free..I was always in the 300mb range..Sorry I cannot remember to much, I have the Thunderbolt know and have a new set of challenges…

  • fetusjerky

    Turned the phone back on all the liberty icon keeps spining and the phone doesnt do anything.

    Also the first time I attempted liberty didn’t save right. So i just put it on the the sd card from the comp. I restarted my phone. I figured that the z4 root and bootstrap were still in place. My this is how I messed up. What do I do now

  • Cody Mcgee

    Works great but my homekey doesn’t. Work Plz any help would be great email is. Cody.mcgee88@gmail.com

  • Silentrunner05

    I installed the ROM last night, powered off my phone, plugged in my wall charger, went to bed and now my phone will not turn on…My batter did not charge at all…..

    • Mcneilmoe

      you might need to try different battery

      • Silentrunn05

        Na…It charges in my docking station which I use the same cable to plug into my docking station…but when I use the same charging cord directly to the phone it does not charge. It starts to charge and then nothing…

  • Tekno1

    HELP!!! I AM STUCK AT THE LIBERTY LOGO AND IT WON’T GO ANY FURTHER! :( ANY WAY TO FIX?

    • Kuboo99

      I had the same problem, I think it was caused by not wiping the phone first. To quote deeteknyc “Or hold lock butto, camera and zoom down at once to start boot mgr.” I did that and then turned off the phone and turned it back on. It went to ClockWork Recovery. From there I wiped the phone and the cache and reinstalled the liberty zip. Hopefully this works for you.

  • Motoxer

    Is it possible to download and install roms strait from the DX browser. I have no external internet connection. So I rooted to have free mobile wifi hotspot.

  • Kuboo99

    I forgot to wipe my phone before install. Now I get stuck at the liberty boot logo. Is there any way to fix this?

    • Kuboo99

      Never mind. I fixed it.

    Force reboot by holding lock button. And reinstall zip. Or hold lock butto, camera and zoom down at once to start boot mgr.

    • Fetusjerky

      Holding lock and camera down doesnt do anything what are you calling the zoom button. The place where you turn the sound up

  • Deeteknyc

    USB your phone to your computer. Download the zip file to the computer. Drag it to your SD card. Disconnect usb. Then find the zip on your phone with astro, etc and run.

  • Black68gtx

    Ouch! I just dowloaded the file installed and my droid X is dead. All I have is the logo LIBERTY and the eagle spinning around. I can not get it to reboot. Any Ideas!!!!!!!

  • Lance_rhoads

  • rudawg

    Is anyone having a problem with this rom with it taking over your phone and locking you out? Somehow. My phone start typing “Liberty 1.5 Awesome” on the google search by itself. Don’t know what is going on.

  • JustinmCox

    I’ve just rooted my Droid 2 global and i download the bootstrap recovery but when i wiped data and installed the zip it loaded fine but it wouldn’t connect to the verizon network. any thoughts on what to do. I backed up my phone so i went back but i would like to give Liberty another shot down the road but it wouldn’t let me activate the phone saying that the airplane mode was on but it wouldn’t let me turn the airplane mode off. so i’m confused.

    • Mcneilmoe

      okay. I have this problem all the time. If you made a backup in bootstrap then restore it. If you didnt make a backup in clockworkmod then try wipe. If that doesnt work then flash an sbf file

  • Mcneilmoe

    Great rom! better than apex!! im glad i made a backup after i flashed it because I got that dumb no service thing so i restored my phone and the batterylife and speed is amazing

  • Myfast06

    Is there a free version of the Koush’s bootstrap recovery? :/ I’m only 15 and don’t have a CC smh’

  • desperate_Azn_T-T

    i reflashed from liberty 1.0 to 1.5.
    i wiped data/cache. installed successfully…but, i still cant install ANY of the themes…
    can anyone help?? T-T

  • Shawn Roberts

    Crazy noob question: I just flashed 1.5 from running Apex 1.3.1 and so far loving Liberty. I’m not a huge fan on the yellow though (no offense) and installed the OG GB theme [black and green]. However, the notification progress bars and menu sliders are still yellow. Can I change this in the toolbox to make it compliment the rest of the theme? Am I missing something?

  • Regnarp

    Man am I glade I don’t have the droid2global ….oh wait I do :-( one day I will make it bak to auntie am.

  • Kyfry85

    So I just went through all the steps, rebooted and now it says Liberty with the Symbol on my screen…How long is this suppose to last?

    • Christian

      I have that same thing on my screen, How long did it last???

  • http://twitter.com/KieranCarobine Kieran Carobine

    When I click to install from SD card, it freezes on ‘Installing update….’ but does nothing else. Anyone else getting this problem?
