What do you mean? If you need rooted south african or singapore version you should look for its dump on the page i posted in the head of this post.

No no, i have an american milestone but the update isnt available for america yet, so i wanted to know if there was a way to trick the system to think my milestone is from singapur , so i'll be able to udpate my phone right now

hi thanks for supplying us with this info, but before i update, please can you post some screen shots, i remember launcher 2.1 having some problems on accuraltey clicking menu items, whilst in landscape. is this still and issue?

do we have live wallpapers now? also what are the other benefits? any chance of some screen shots?

and most importantly how would we get QWERTY back?

thanks again, i will update this soon, (with root)

There's no Launcher in Milestone ROM of 2.1 Android. All is the same like in 2.0.1 ROM, except of having live wallpapers, customisable number of home screens & other little changes + speed and stability. Can't post a screenshots 'cause of don't have now such ability. Sorry.

Just got the update in Hong Kong to 2.1. Now everytime i boot up or awake from sleep, my phone asks for password due to exchange security. Annoying ha ha. Now waiting for other firmware,

Actually, My milestone is rooted. I merely followed the instructions in the thread here which was essentially flash an older recovery SBF and then use the original milestone_root.zip to root the phone. It installs the su and the Superuser.apk just like the regular roots and works ( I tested with the N1 torch, just to add to the whitelist :) )

It's official, but nandroid. :P

P.S. Is there any need to update my post of flashing 2.1 to Milestone dew to existing new method with flashing original sbf of 2.1 with RDS lite and reflashing recovery from 2.0.1 with RDS to have ability to root?

I have used the 2.1 eu sbf file



i used a diff method, but mine could have originated from there?

heres the info from my about screen.



firmware version 2.1-update1
firmware configuration ver...
GAS_EMEA_USASHLS00RTEU_P042
KERNEL VERSION
2.6.29-OMAP1
A21146@CARHE74#1
BUILD NUMBER SHOLS_U2.02.31.0

sorry i wrote so much, not really sure what the unique item would be, might be that all 2.1 is just showing as nexus, but i doubt that as i used pulse helix which showed me on facebook as SHOLS it said download facebook for your shols.
