CyanogenMod 10 (based on Android 4.1.2 "Jelly Bean") for HTC Liberty ("Aria/Gratia")

NOTE: Just to make this clear, this is UNOFFICIAL, and NOT supported by CyanogenMod.


Hboot 1.02 or higher is required!

Bugs & stuff that doesn't work:

- Backlight for navigation buttons won't turn on sometimes (it seems to work fine on auto brightness though)
- Built-in voice recognition doesn't work (see Tips & Tricks for workaround)
- Emergency calling is untested
- Headset/headphones already plugged in will not be detected on boot
- HTML5 videos (like in the browser) don't work
- Lockscreen can sometimes glitch out on boot
- Netflix doesn't work (maybe some others too)
- Panorama "works", but is VERY slow & glitches making it pretty much unusable
- Timelapse recording doesn't work
- USB tethering doesn't work

Tips & Tricks:

- Trackball wake: Open Terminal Emulator and run "trackballwake", then reboot. Do the same to disable

- Voice Search on Google Now (kind of):
1. Install Voice Search from the Play Store
2. Install this app (now requires $0.99):
3. Long-press search key (or open app drawer), and pick Voice Search Assistant with the blue microphone icon
4. App will capture voice using the old Voice Search, then send it to Google Now
5. Press search button on keyboard

- FM radio: use Spirit FM and allow root requests

CyanogenMod for supporting so many old devices, and keeping Android open

tl;dr? Download here!
Release 8 -

MediaFire mirror (slower, ads, captcha):


Google Apps -

The CM update script is supposed to restore Google Apps, but sometimes doesn't successfully (probably due to space limits). If you are updating, format /system then reinstall both the ROM package and gapps package

A full Google Apps package won't fit on the system partition, so I've taken out a few things (face unlock & GoogleTTS which we can't use, etc)

This may be the last complete version of Android this phone gets unless Google cuts down on the size a lot in the next version (unlikely, since they don't support old devices with small storage)

Manifest with ROM & kernel:

If space is not enought for next Google plan, we can set system partition to maximum space using revolutionary_cus and we can use data partition from sd card (optimising initrd) ?

I'm thinking the same thing. Any reason we can't use your h-boot utility to increase the system partition to 250MB?

I'm glad to see development is going for this phone still. It was my first smartphone, and I loved it. Unfortunately I don't have it anymore, since I upgraded to the HTC One X. But I sold it to my friend (still rooted and on CM9) so maybe he'll have some use for this

Your ROM is great, but one bug I noticed made me return to my nandroid backup: Link2SD doesn't work. If I try to move an app to the SD card, it says "App successfully moved", but if I try to start it, it force closes. Do you have a solution for this problem? If this works, I would use your ROM probably as a daily driver...

OK, I will try S2E again. You're right, Link2Sd hasn't been updated for JB so far, so we will probably have to wait for this. I'll let you know if S2E is working for me.
