What’s really great about Android is having a vibrant development community dedicated to improving our devices and it comes especially handy when device manufacturers or operating system vendors are either not doing anything about it, or simply doing things too slowly. In the same community development and sharing spirit, Liquid_User at Modaco Forums has shared with us the official Android 2.2 Froyo Rom for Acer Liquid. We still have no idea whether this ROM is for Acer Liquid E or any other prototype, but we can expect it to work on every Acer Liquid handset.
Being an official ROM coming from Acer, the build is pretty stable with all core and necessary phone functions working. The JIT compiler magic is also there as the speed massively improves after loading this ROM. All-in-all, it’s got all the great improvements that Google announced for Froyo.
The ROM has been reported with complete working features including:
- LED Lights
- Haptic Touch Feedback
- Wireless Tethering
