Of course, you should look close at the Android version and Mod version... ;-)


================================================== =======
Open up the Browser, and type in "about:debug" (minus the quotes of course)
This will enable debug settings and the Java Console.

================================================== =======

Goto Settings -> About Phone, and click repeatedly on Android version and
Mod version. You will see what happens. :-D

This is one massive update to my ROM. I have personally themed damn near every image in it. A LOT of help came from Sonny Sekhon, author of the ICS theme for T-Mobile Theme Engine. Many thanks to him for getting me started on this!

Wipe EVERYTHING before installing, or you WILL have problems.

Give the ROM time to run, before judging it. It will be slow to start, but speed will increase as things settle in. Wont take long, maybe a few minutes!

As for the Market, you need to sign into your Google account FIRST, and then the icon will appear.

Here are my thanks, in no particular order:

and more.....

Thanks to everyone for making this possible. This is still an adventure for me. I hope to get this on more devices, as soon as more devices become available to me to test with.

Just saying.. The latest version.. Need to be ran off of the froyo kernel...

We have nothing to fear but running out of beer

I haven't heard of anyone here trying out this rom yet. Nobody probably wants to go back to froyo im guessing. Just wondering if anyone has checked it out.

I saw a pretty good video review here

It seems like you get liquid performance but with froyo battery life.... Still its is always nice to have more branches on our CM family tree :) -AT

I am running Liberty 3 currently but I ran Steel Droid X 3.0 (beta) for several weeks. I enjoyed it very much, and it performed well. Battery life was better than other ROMS I have installed however average benchmarks (using Quadrant Standard) were higher than most.

This ROM is highly customizable and installs in a very minimal state. The install is a little tricky to avoid having the ROM bring up CWM recovery each time, but I'm sure the Dev included the instructions.

The radios seemed to be better than some of the 2nd init ROMs I've installed, and being based on CM7 it was a pretty quick matter of finding out how to address some of the small issues I encountered.

I still have a backup of it on my SD card, and I can sbf back to Froyo and restore it if anyone needs any specific information. I enjoyed the ROM very much and appreciate the work that went into it. Once I got it running the way I wanted it, it was and remains my favorite Froyo based ROM.
