    Got it, LOVE it! Smooth as… well, Liquid! And just topped out at 2001 Quadrant! many availible themes and boot animations. Sorry Sensei, I love someone else now. (Now if I can just make the green LED go away when its charging)

  • Randy

    I’ve been using it all day and like it alot. really fast and seems to be stable. I have found a couple of issues though:
    1-Bluetooth wont connect in my car. had no problem with ICX.
    2-FC when you try and chane backgroud in cardock. That one actually locked my phone up twice.
    3-FC in the theme changer a couple times.
    Other then those pretty damn good rom. I can live with the FC issues, but the bluetooth one is a biggie for me.

    • Tyler Durden

      Seems pretty good but the camera FCs everytime. Had to go back to SSMv3

        You wiped everything right? Im not having that issue

        • word198

          So to install and for optimal workability we hsve to wipe the phone’s data? If we move all to card will it still be available…things like apps, pics, txts, emails, etc?

  • frostyicy

    Ok so right now I am on ICX .605 from Mobile Sensei, can I download this liquid rom the way my phone is now, or will I have to download from my stock .605 gingerbread which I have saved on bootstrap? Thanks in advanced for advice.

    • admin

      You can flash from ICX

  • Sanjans

    My phone keeps giving me a error message saying android.process.media has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.

    What does that mean?

  • Randy

    the camera is FC for me too. If I tap on settings button it FC and and cant open the camera up again untill reboot. It also FC when I took a pic and deleated it. I wiped everything before installing. I read a couple other threads and camera FC seems to be the common theme.

    • admin

      Thats unfortunate… but im sure a bugfixer will be posted soon… i would suggest downloading a camera app from the market in the meantime

  • frostyicy

    This rom is super fact QS Benchmark was 2099. Only thing it seems to change the standard keyboaard and standard messaging. How can I get my standard keyboard with swype and my standard messaging back or can it not be done running this rom?

    • iowahawks

      I’m not sure about messaging, but to get swype back I just flashed a swype zip that I have using Droid X Bootstrapper. No wipe, no reset, just boot into recovery and install the zip from the sd card.

      Technically it’s not the “bone stock” swype as the tracing color is red. Otherwise it’s the same.

      Link for the .zip here… http://db.tt/Kk8yFPB3

  • frostyicy

    I’m thinking I probably can’t get the standard keyboard or messaging system back to stock.

    Another question, has anyone figured out how to turn off the green notification light when charging the phone???

  • Jculver

    can you change your 3g icon to 4g icon with this rom

    • admin

      I have not seen that option

  • Ham____

    Just installed and not sure if this was supposed to happen. I got the X splash for awhile and the screen went blank. I then hit the Home screen button and there was the green android with a finger touching it. Was this part of the process?? It is working.
    Ham______

    • admin

      Yea that is the startup screen… its a whole new rom so you need to setup the phone like you did when it was new

      • Ham____

        Thanks for the reply. This is my first successful ROM install.
        Ham____

    • frostyicy

      Yeah it is a part of the process, it allows you to link your google account to your phone.

  • frostyicy

    Has anyone found a way to get the green notification not to light while charging yet? I feel this will be a nuisance while sleeping at night charging.

    • admin

      Just turn the notification light for charging off in liquid settings

      • frostyicy

        I looked there isn’t an option for that in liquid settings…..?

  • http://droidmodderx.com WNflyer

    The camera works okay for me until I try to zoom. Then it is FC and useless. Back to Apex.

    • arthur

      I had the same issue with camera. Liquid0624 is pretty tight on his release don’t know if he’s aware of camera issue. Jumped back on apex..until issue is resolved ..

  • Josh Christie

    When trying to use reboot option in power menu, it causes my phone to get stuck at “M”. I can’t boot into cwr at all. I have tried everything but can’t get passed “M” logo. This makes twice I have to SBF.!!!!!!

    • admin

      Flash the dc 2nd init recovery in rom manager and use rom manager to boot into clockwork… that’s what I ended up doing

  • Josh Christie

    Thank you for your help.

  • Rick

    Has anyone figured out how to turn the led off while charging. And is there a way to fix camera keep getting force close.

    • frostyicy

      From my understanding there is a problem with the gingerbread kernel so currently there is no way to turn off the led. I haven’t been having the force close issue with my camera either, until i try to zoom in.

  • Rick

    One more thing when i installed this rom i went to my apps and i no longer have verizon’s backup assistant. Which is where my contacts are.

    • frostyicy

      Same thing happened to me. Luckily I saved battery assistant on titanium backup before flashing the rom. So if you did the same you can easily restore it and you’ll be good to go.

      How has your battery life been using this rom? The rom is super fast and super clean yet my battery drains super fast. Searchin now to see if overclockin or underclockin can possibly make battery life a lil better.

  • Caleb

    This is kinda random and off topic, but is there any way that I can save music within my internal memory?

  • frostyicy

    I like this rom alot yet the more I use it the more I see some minor issues.

    I know on stock and ICX while on a phone call if I recieved a text I could hear a beep to realize I had a phone call. Just now I was on the phone for about 45 mins and when I got off noticed I had about 5 texts.

    Is there anyway to hear a sound when recieving a notification while I am on a phone call???

  • ryan

    I also get force closes when using camera.

    My main issue with this ROM is when I change a theme and reboot it doesnt take and goes back to the default theme… Anybody know a way to fix this ?

    • ryan

      I redid the install and it seemed to fix my camera issues and theme chooser problems.

    • admin

      reboot your phone

  • archit

    I AM NOT LIKING THE NEW LIQUID ROM AND THAT WAS THE FIRST ROM I EVER INSTALLED. HOW CAN I GET BACK TO GINGERBREAD .605

    I INSTALLED THIS ROM FROM .595

    HELP

    • admin

      Check out the .605 prerooted predeodexed update in the StockGB roms menu

      • archit

        So just download the zip file go to the rom manager to get into recovery. wide data, cache and install from zip.

        Just few problems i found in the rom was that you can run different keyboard apps on it. I use thumb keyboard and it doesn’t let me choose it. The theme changer, camera and several other apps crash all the time.

        One other thing if i decided to keep this rom how can i updates for it, is there particular app for it or something.

        I am sorry for the huge comment.

  • Rick

    I installed liquid 3.0, but If I wanted to revert to ICX do i just wipe everything and intall ICX again. Thanks

    • ripncny

      I think you can if your on the GB kernel-phone settings, kernel version 2.6.32.9-g34b306d. Do not use D2 bootstrap in a 2nd init rom (Liquid 3.0) – experience is priceless. Liquid is a nice rom but battery life horrible.

      • Musixian

        Concur battery issues. 100 to 60% in less than 3 hours just sitting in the holster… Back to stock root 605…

        • Ken

          Try charging your phone to 100% then wipe the battery stats in the liquidsettings/goodies/scripts/batterystats or from recovery. I’ve had no battery issue this morning. been off the charger since 4:00 am and still at 80%

          • dave kaz

            I let it battery run down till it powered off .It was a brick after that. Battery would not charge. My son had a droid x also so I used his battery to sbf back to ota602 then updated ota to 605 and rooted with 1 click. afraid to flash this rom again.been doing this awhile. it was nice for a day. Would of kept it till the next best(im obsessed with roms)but afraid to go back.

  • Rick

    Did you say not to use D2 bootstrap to install liquid ROM?

    • admin

      Use it to install the rom… once installed dont use it.. instead use 2ndinit recovery from rom manager

      • admin

        No you can only use 2ndinit recovery from rom manager… get free version from market open it up.. select flash custom recovery.. select dx2ndinit from popup menu.. then reboot recovery

  • Rick

    Can I use DROIDX bootstrap once ROM is installed. Has anything been mentioned about a fix for the camera on liquid 3.0

    • admin

      Yes try installing a camera app from the market

  • Rick

    Are you having camera issues?

  • Rick

    I have tried downloading multiple camera apps as well as fixing permissions, but nothing seems to work. Maybe there will be a fix soon.

  • frostyicy

    Just underclocked my X on Liquid. Seems to be getting better battery life will run this for a day see where my battery is. May make some changes if need be. Will report back to ya.

  • jtaran06

    When camera fix is released will you publish the update?

    • admin

      yes i will

  • Rick

    when typing in the name of a recipient in the text messaging app i notice some random #’S appearing under the name i type in,and below that is the recipient i was looking for with their phone number under neath. example:
    James
    49583- what is this (annoying)
    James
    281-456-1234
    Is this happening to anyone else.(and the numbers under the first one don’t correspond with the letters. there just random.

  • Andy

    its a smooth as silk rom. i just needs a lot a battery saver scripts.

  • Rick

    Any news on a possible camera fix.

    • Charles

      I am waiting on the camera fix as well since all camera apps FC. Most everything else is solid though so I’ll continue to wait.

  • ryan

    Yeah any news on an Camera Fix ? Also I noticed my 3g speeds seem to be pretty slow and sometimes I lose data all together. Hope we can see an Liquid Smooth 3.1 hotfix update soon ! Really like this ROM great work !

    • admin

      No camera fix has even been mentioned. I know the dev has several devices that he supports. hopefully he will jump on the camera issue soon.

      • ryan

        That sucks to hear, but I have noticed people on Droid, Droid 2 Global and Droid X have this same type of issue where you take a couple pictures and leave the Camera application and go back into it. Says failed to start camera. I have also tryed different camera applications and same type of issue. Hope it can be fixed rather fast/simple.

        • Brandon

          I fixed my camera probs by going into settings, unmounting sd card. Then you should be able to open the camera app., but you’ll need to restart to remount.

        • jtaran06

          I emailed the dev. Said they are working on a cam fix. Said hopefully wont be long

  • Scott

    quick question, i have been trying to upgrade superuser elite and when i try to install it my x is telling me that i cant accept non market downloads. i change the setting but i cant intall due to it not saving. any word on that?

  • jevon

    None of the games I have work. It says process has stopped unexpectedly. Need help because I paid for those games

  • Rick

    Any update on the camera fix?

    • Jtaran06

      Im waiting to. If one don’t hurry up im gonna have to flash stock back

  • BigDadyz

    Just a note: don’t use “Juice Defender” it doesn’t appear to sense when you are using the phone and therefore won’t turn on the data. Which means you can’t send and receive txt’s, surf the web, and etc… additionally I tried to use Liquid Smooth and Titanium Backup to restore two different apps (stock camera and car dock) because the camera crashes as well as the width of the pictures is less than with the stock camera and I use the car dock all the time while I’m driving. However, it wouldn’t or couldn’t restore the apps. Not sure why.

    Generally I really like the flexibility and speed of the ROM!

    Hugh

  • BigDadyz

    Just discovered it but DON’T, I repeat, DON’T update netflix. The latest version doesn’t show the picture of a movie, it only has sound. Same is true for SSX 2.2 (2.3.7). is anyone having a different affect?

    Hugh

  • BigDadyz

    sorry I meant “same is true for … Shuji ROM 2.2 / DX based on .602

  • Droidx90250

    Camera fix soon? Aside from that it’s a very nice rom.

  • chung

    I did a Google search for a cm7 nightly camera patch and its working, well kinda….

  • Rick

    Any news on the camera fix would be appreciated? (DX)

    • frostyicy

      I would love an answer to this as well. Other than the camera not working this rom is wonderful. I’m holding off on flashin a new rom being that I don’t want to restore my sms messages with an incorrect time stamp and they’ll be all out of order.

      Camera fix anytime soon???

      • admin

        I wouldn’t count on it… the Dev kinda dropped the ball on the camera no eta on fix

        • jtaran06

          I guess goodbye to liquid.. Thanks for the info

        • frostyicy

          Thanks for the info.

  • alan

    I have been running this for a while, like it so far, my camera is fine, it force closes sometimes but not enough to gripe about. My main problem and question is, my battery life doesnt seem to be very good. Is there a way to fix this? Im unfamiliar with overclocking or underclocking but would that help? Any of the newer roms posted after this one seem to be any better than liquid? whats the word?

    • frostyicy

      Yeah underclocking works. I get about 15hrs outta my battery.

  • rick

    Its a shame about the non-camera fix. This ROM had it all.

    • admin

      Agreed… I hope they take care of that

  • Deegge

    The Liquid Team will fix the issues. It just may not be right away Or as fast as you want because they are supporting multiple devices and can’t work on it full-time. This rom has everything I want (except for the batt and camera) nice and clean leaving me to add what I want.

  • alan

    Ok so how do u underclock? I’m new to spin stuff like that

    • frostyicy

      Underclockin is fairly simple. You have to download Quickclock Advanced or Android Overclock. Personally I have both. Quickclock automatically calculates your phone min and max frequency and you can adjust from their you can over clock/underclock from this app. I only use that to calibrate numbers, but then I use Android Overclock to actually underclock and overclock because it has profiles such as screen off,screen on, time, battery charge level, temp level. From these you can set your voltages to get better performance or save some battery life.

      For instance say your min is 300 and your max is 1300. You can use a screen off profile to set your phone for 300min and 300max therefore your phone is basically in a sleeping state and doesn’t use any battery. You can then set your screen on from 300-1300 which will optimize your phone performance while its running or you can set it to max 800 which will get good performance but also save some battery.

      Go to droidforums.net I posted in the liquid forum there about how I underclocked my droid X running 3.0 to get at least 15hrs on my battery.

      I have switched to SSX since and it is running flawless. Amazing battery life and very good customization options.

      Hope this helps guy.

  • deegge

    I did what Ken suggested for battery fix and it works for me!

    Make sure your phone is charged 100% then run the Battery Stats script located here:
    Liquid Settings/Goodies/Scripts/Battery Stats

  • Rick

    Does this work on the eco.

  • Rick

    I meant evo

  • karl

    • admin
