Post {Discussion}{JB 4.3}{Sense 5.5}{S4} Liberty ROM & Flashing Instructions

This is a general discussion thread for Liberty ROM
Please ask any question you may have and I'll try to answer it as best I can.

Somebody asked for instructions on how to install Liberty ROM and New Firmware so here they are:

Installation of leaked firmware (HBOOT 2.16) and Liberty ROM

 
WARNING - This WILL wipe your SD Card so back up your files before proceeding
Make sure HTC Sync is REMOVED and drivers are installed. Get drivers: Here

Charge your phone to AT LEAST 60% just in case

  1. If you are S-OFF proceed to step 3, if not continue to step 2.
  2. If your phone is from T-Mobile (US & Germany), Telus or Boost Mobile use Moonshine S-OFF
    If you have the international model use: Facepalm S-OFF, Firewater S-OFF or Rumrunner S-OFF (Rumrunner is the easiest in my opinion)
    Note that people with the T-Mobile, Telus or BM model CAN use Facepalm, Firewater and Rumrunner as well but international users CANNOT use Moonshine
    Now use one of these methods to S-OFF (You cannot proceed if you are S-ON)
  3. Now download the new firmware: Here
  4. Extract the file to a convenient location (Like Desktop)
  5. Open the Install Package folder, press the Shift key, Right-Click while holding Shift and select Open Command Window Here
  6. If your phone is on type:
    Code:
    Select Code
    adb reboot oem-78
    and hit enter

    If you are in the bootloader, select Fastboot and type:
    Code:
    Select Code
    fastboot oem rebootRUU
    and hit enter
  7. Now type:
    Code:
    Select Code
    fastboot flash zip firmware.zip
    and hit enter
  8. You should get a message like this: "FAILED (remote: 90 hboot pre-update! please flush image again immediately)". Do not panic just type the command above again.
  9. The green bar on the screen should stop at about 80-90% but do not worry, this is normal.
  10. Now to flash the required recovery type this:
    Code:
    Select Code
    fastboot flash zip TWRP_2.6.1.0_ville_4.2.2.zip
    and hit enter.
  11. Now reboot into the bootloader by typing:
    Code:
    Select Code
    fastboot reboot-bootloader
    and hit enter.
  12. Once in the bootloader select Recovery
  13. When you are in recovery go to Advanced then ADB Sideload
  14. Now you download the ROM: Here. (Latest release is V3)
  15. Now place LIBERTY-S4-Vx.zip into the Install Package folder (The x represents version number, e.g V4
  16. Now open a new command window by holding Shift and Right-Click at the same time and selecting Open Command Window Here
  17. Next you must type:
    Code:
    Select Code
    adb sideload LIBERTY-S4-V3.zip
    and hit enter.
  18. Make sure the screen is on when the sideload is almost 100% complete as TWRP freezes for some reason.
  19. Now follow the instructions in the installer, make sure you select Wipe Data during installation and Reboot when the installation process is finished.
  20. Finished

Alright, I'll try it again here:

Does this ROM enable Bluetooth 4.0 (LE) on the One S?

Could you maybe post more detailed installation instructions? Do we have to be S-OFF? Should we full wipe before installing?

You can change Blinkfeed country location now and possible power drain fixes.
