Right, I understand the Droid root doesn't work on the Milestone... let's collect all our thoughts / findings on the Milestone root process and see if we can get it licked!

Hello Paul
as far as I did unterstand, the is getting rooted by applying a update.zip with a specific size.

There is a bug in 2.0 that allows to patch this update, without checking the signature.

So they integrated the exploit in the verifier.c and added some signatures to it and patched the droid.

In this forum is a good description: http://alldroid.org/...forum.php?f=210

The problem is - we can't use the root update, because it is for the american firmware.

What we need is a milestone firmware.

But: We should not patch the next update - Google fixed the exploit already https://review.sourc...m/#change,12807

We will have to stay on 2.0 - get the update.zip from elsewhere and patch it with the root-files.


Regards, Tim

It seems as though to root the Milestone we need to get hold of an update file for the Milestone (as opposed to the Droid)... we might need to wait until the 2.0.1 update ships!

Scratch that, got the menu by pressing vol-up and camera when in recovery. ;)

Hmmm, indeed, the Droid root method doesn't work! ;)

Rumor has it that some folks have already gotten OTA updates for the Milestone. The motorola milestone support forum has stated this. My milestone still fails to connect and most of the folks believe it will be end of December or so and others have speculated that it may vary by geography. There is one thing we all know. The one thing is we have no real idea when the update will come out :-)

Thats not correct :)
I mailed the support and they answered me, that they will release the update in the first january weeks.

Some rumours got popular, that spain got the first milestone updates, but I can't find any evidence for that.
I just need to get one file, to try out my first root-attempt, but it's in the update..

Perhaps Paul want's to have a look?

I sent him a message ;) I also contacted Zinx Verituse from Alldroid.org - he's the one who rooted the droid.
He pointet out, that we should be carefull with creating a new update File.

Tim
