we could try it the cliq way - but we need a milestone boot.img for that.. and we don't have one as far as i know.

androidianicom in the irc told me that the milestone is rsd_lite compatible..

the problem is, that they use a modified droid boot.img
that's what the devs write here: http://alldroid.org/...php?f=252&t=809


boot.img: allmost all Droid OEM (2.0)


this is our problem :) there is no milestone boot.img because you need root permissions to make one.

I downloaded the system dump from the link, and it looks to be from a milestone. Here's what I have also found - The Facebook app from this dump was easily installed on my Uk milestone and works perfectly. The CarDock.apk also installed and appeared in my programs as Car Home with a nice little steering Wheel icon. :) I clicked and at first it didn't seem to work. However when I plug in to USB it magically works. A dandy little arch with Voice search, Navigation, contacts and stuff appears, all the links working fine, including Navigation as I applied the Google Navigation hack from another thread.

If this system dump is useful to you for rooting explorations, Paul, let me know and I will try to figure a way to upload it to my webspace for you to get - send me a PM B)

That is exactly what this appears to be - a full dump of a system folder from a Motorola Milestone... :)

Certainly has xbin folder and in it the su file. B)

There's nothing to do with that then? There's no way to obtain root? It's not an "official" fw?
Sorry for the questions (that probably you'll find "n00b" B)) but I'm new in the Android world :)
