Non-standard disclaimer:

In order to use this ROM, you must have already installed clockwork recovery. If you manage to brick your phone with this ROM from there, you are a dumb ass of unimaginable proportions, and I absolve myself of any responsibility whatsoever. Further, any damage done to your phone with this ALPHA ROM is your fault and no one else's.


Q. I bricked my phone/my signal sucks/my cat exploded since installing this ROM.
A. See the Non-standard disclaimer above.

Q. I can't seem to flash the rom successfully, and my Nandroid backups don't restore.
A. Do NOT start Clockwork recovery by powering down the phone with the USB port plugged in. Clockwork WILL NOT operate reliably that way. Power down the phone with the USB cord disconnected so that the phone powers off properly. Then start the phone by pressing and holding the vol-down button while pressing the power button to start. After diagnostics complete, you can enter Clockwork the proper way.

Q. I lost my 3g connection after I flashed Liberated Aria FR Series, now the icon just says "H".
A. You didn't lose 3g - the H is for HSDPA, which is enhanced 3g, sometimes referred to as 3.5g. It's a good thing, if you see an "H" where the "G" used to display - don't worry about it. Print this out for next time you head to the can:

Q. How do I keep my wifi from going to sleep every time the screen shuts off?
A. There is a hidden feature that disables wifi sleep.
menu > Settings > Wireless & networks > wifi settings > menu (again) > advanced > Wi-Fi Sleep policy > Never > menu > Save
However: although you can keep the wifi service from sleeping, the wifi driver will still sleep on it's own after detecting no bus activity for a period of time. It doesn't wake reliably, so you are better off just letting the service sleep.

Q. Will this ROM support over or under clocking with Set CPU?
A. Yes! As of FR008, we have a stable, fully functioning OC kernel.

Q. Hey, what's a de-odexed ROM and what's it for?
A. Read this: and this:

Q. I can't get flash to work. What's going on?
A. Flash 10 is not supported by this CPU, but HTC's Flash Lite is in there.

Q. Where's the FroYo wireless hotspot?
A. It's in there!
menu > Wireless & networks > tethering and portable hotspot

Q. What's wrong with bluetooth? It doesn't work with my floozengadget.
A. Nothing. All bluetooth functions have been confirmed *WORKING* with compatible devices.

Q. But my floozengadget device is bluetooth compatible. What's wrong with bluetooth?
A. Nothing. Android bluetooth on the broadcom chipset is not compatible with every bluetooth device. Consistent compatibility issues have been noted with devices using certain parrott chipsets, certain automobiles with factory bluetooth including most Nissans, Volkswagons and an assortment of other devices and autos.

Q. Can you fix bluetooth so it will work with my floozengadget device?
A. No.

Q. Does the FM Radio work?
A. Yes.

Q. Is this an HTC Sense ROM?
A. Yes.

Q. My widgets don't load or I am missing icons on the desktop or in folders.
A. The sdcard mounts late in the startup process - later than when desktop icons and widgets are loaded. This is a problem inherent in Android 2.2 and manifests itself when an application/widget is moved to the sdcard that has a presence on the Desktop. This is not a bug in this ROM, it's apps2sd in FroYo. For better apps2sd performance, use the ap2ext version (enabled by default when an ext2 or ext3 partition exists as the second partition - after FAT - on the SDCARD).

Q. If this is Froyo, then how come it doesn't work exactly like it does on xyzphone?
A. The Aria is not xyzphone, and probably has a different feature set.

Q. May I use your work and customize it and republish it?
A. Sure, but if you start with this ROM as a base for your own, please note it.

Q. May I mirror these ROMs?
A. Please don't, as I updated them periodically, and I can't update mirrors I can't control. If you want to do you own build based on these, then fine, mirror away.

Install either ROM from Clockwork Recovery.
Once clockwork is loaded:
  • Do a nandroid backup to preserve your current rom
  • Wipe Data (if coming from another rom, including CM6 or liberated_aria non-deodexed version, or to enable additional languages from previous version)
  • Wipe Cache
  • Wipe dalvik cache (advanced > wipe dalvik cache)
  • Install liberated_aria_*FR00* from sdcard

To Enable A2SD:
  • Backup your applications
  • Backup your sdcard
  • Partition your sdcard with ROM Manager with an ext partition option. (ROM manager is in Market)
  • This should start a special mode of clockwork recovery, which will partition the sdcard.
