    Want to try to ROM again.

    So I first tried rooting last February. I did it and installed Bootstrapper and then tried flashing Liberty ROM and ended up failing somehow and having to sbf. I wanna try to do it again. I am on Gingerbread .605 and want to flash Liberty 3 v 2.0. I have a question on the steps I should take and the EXACT order I should do them in to ensure that I don't have to SBF again. So here's what I think I have to do (already rooted):

    Buy & install bootstrapped for the Droid 2
    Recovery
    Reboot Recovery
    Wipe cache
    Wipe data/cache
    Wipe davlick cache
    Install - Libery
    Reboot
    Wait for it to start up.


    Are all of these steps correct and in proper order?

    Looks good, just make a backup before hand.
    Also, make sure to check your MD5 of the liberty file on your sd card. I use android file verifier and find the file, long press, select md5 sum, compare against the md5 in the liberty thread.
    If your md5 is wrong, thats when stuff doesnt flash right.

    Also, if you want to make sure your stuff restores, use titanium backup and backup user apps. NOT system apps.
    As far as contacts, I usually go to contacts, menu, import/export, then export contacts to sd, that way it saves contacts to sd, and if your google account doesnt bring them back, you can go into contacts, menu, import contacts.

    Thank you for the quick response. I used AFV to checl the md5 sum and it says Liberty3X-2.0Gold.zip could not verify any files in the /msnt/sdcard directory and says that the selected file doesnt appear to be formatted like an nandroid.md5 file

    I just checked my liberty file on my sd card. Went fine. Did you unzip it or something? How did you dl it, from phone or transferred from computer?
