Liberty: An Ideal and a ROM

January 12, 2011

Android, Mobile Phone, Technology

Last weekend, I wrote about installing and using a new ROM for my Droid 2.  At the time that I wrote that post, I knew that I would be replacing it with another post very shortly.  That time is now.  And the reason I am writing this post is because I have once again changed the Android ROM for my Droid 2.  As of 7AM this morning, I switched to the new Liberty ROM.  This ROM is a collaboration between two exceptional Android contributors.  Kejar and JRummy have united to build a very interesting new ROM – and it rocks.

Why did I switch – yet again?  First, you have to know that sampling and deploying ROM’s is a very addictive thing.  It meets some fundamental control issues that every geek must address.  Second, I really wanted to join into a very “new” thing.  So leaping onto Liberty meets the “cool” threshold I set for many technologies.

But beyond coolness, style and swagger, Liberty represents freedom from the historical bonds associated with phones and their operating systems.  It represents the work of the common man.  And it represents a labor of love for many people.  Android is truly about open communications.  And the Liberty ROM brings us the best of that open ideal for communications technology.
