Cheers for the link.

Updated to 2.0.1, couldn't have been easier. Will look into rooting now ;)

Only difference I've seen are the lock screen, though the clock has only moved to the left (that's it).

The music equalizer is great, much needed as I have spotify on my milestone so listen to music everyday so really happy with the equalizer!

Haven't noticed anything else that's changed, hopefully the battery life will improve with this update...... have to wait and see I guess.

woo hoo, glad theres someone out there! As i said ive rooted also now, and installed busybox via DROIDROOTHELPER, but i need to know if i faffed my recovery menu now...

all i need u to do is turn off your device and then hold power and camera button, let me know if you get the exclamation screen, i cant seem to get there anymore? i get a screen all black with text showing insert USB, which is how the phone looked when doing the 2.0.1 update...

thanks

I dont see how you could of messed up the recovery section however if in doubt you could always re-flash via the normal update software again which should repair any damage.

I know this sound stupid but you didnt use DROIDROOTHELPER for anything else did you? and be aware I think DROIDROOTHELPER is'nt compatible with the milestone anyway because of the differences in the file system i.e. milestone system is in block 6 where as the droids is in 7 I think.

If you are worried re-flash and start again :D
