After being nagged by the update prompt for a day, and read in a Hong Kong forum that 2.0.1 can be rooted with the original method, I decided to try it out like this:

Remount the file system in rw mode

Renamed the otacerts.zip to otacerts.zip.bak in /etc/security

Remount the file system in ro mode

Then I pressed the "Install Now" button.

My milestone rebooted, and attempted the update. The progress bar went to about 25% and then the white exclamation mark appeared, the phone rebooted.

The phone booted up with a "Update failed" box, and a strange error in Maps app which I've never had.

The nag went away. Seems nothing else changed.
