Anonymous, 30 Apr 2011anybody test this 2.2 rom ?? This rom is only one of a few custom roms out there right now. You can check out dexters roms, Khalpowers, and XAVwanted's on the XDA forums. I've tried them all and have just stuck with Dexter's version 2.2.1, 1.3, The same version you can download and install from dkszone.
Its fun to mess around with the different roms, but they aren't perfect. Dexter's in my opinion is the most stable and retains most of the functionality from the stock 2.1 applications. The only issues I've heard people complain about is the the FM radio volume doesn't work correctly. I never use the radio, so it doens't matter to me.
One thing I don't like is that when you switch to these 2.2.1 roms, you can no longer upload a video straight from your phone to Youtube. Not something I use a lot, but is nice to have.
I had a lot of trouble with my stock rom and setting personalized ringtones. They would only work about 50% of the time. With the new roms, the personalized ringtone works probably 90% of the time.
After you have installed openrecovery it would be wise to create a backup rom from you stock 2.1 rom already on your phone. You have to do this before you copy dexters rom onto your SD card though. If you flip through the other posts I've put on here you'll see how to do this.
If you do try this new rom, when you go into openrecovery and hit restore to install the new nandroid file, I recommend doing it twice. Sometimes your phone will get stuck in a boot loop, and you have to do it again anyway, so restoring it twice for me seemed to solve that problem.
Hi I am using this phone since 4 months, till now no problem found, superb phone ,before this i had motorola e6 model which was also good, motorola rocks.....

Install Android 2.2.1 Froyo On Motorola Milestone XT720
Since the link doesn't seem to work to well, try visiting this link below and using the link I have posted on the DKSzone boards for Rom 2.1
[deleted post]Ok, so maybe someone knows the real reason for this not working but I won't pretend to fully understand it. There is something in the characters once this link is copied and pasted into the address bar.
The solution I have found is to copy the link I've posted into microsoft word, and then copy again from work and paste into the address bar.

I need it badly man, the 2.2 froyo upgrade kinda made my milestone suckish and laggy.

A useful not for anyone upgrading with a custom 2.2 rom.
After installing openrecovery and before copying the nandroid file containing the new rom onto your SD card you should back up the stock 2.1 version.
create an empty nandroid file on your SD card. Go into openrecovery and choose nandroid, then backup, then check "system" and "boot" then choose backup selected. This will create a 2.1 stock rom file that you can use to revert back to instead of running through the process of using RSD lite.

With word and pdf you can zoom in and out of the file as a whole, with the ebooks I believe your screen is filled completely with text. Hope that helped a little.
