    MILESTONE 2.1 update and root guide

    Thank you so much for the detailed steps. I have just did it. Now my Milestone is rooted thanks to the efforts of all the miraculous programmers, and to the very organized and explained steps. However, It wasn't that straight forward for me. I had a couple of obstacles: =============== (1) I couldn't of made it without the : SBF / MBN Depacker The latest version (1.2 ALPHA 3) is availabe for .NET 3.5 here 3): http://rapidshare.com/files/386624716/Moto...alpha3.rar.html Supports repacking for the Milestone SBF, including the checksum recalculation. The SPF files I have downloaded were either not acceptable by the RSD (the sholes spf) refusing to give me the start button, or failed to complete (in the vulnerable spf). I had to extract-recompile them to be acceptable by the RSD. =============== (2) There were some warning on the console screen on the phone that scared me, but I have decided to go on. This was the output of the Milestone after booting in recovery mode, notice the last line (it was in Yellow color) -------------- Android sytem recovery <2e> Use d-pad to highlight; center to select. reboot system now apply sdcard:update.zip wipe data/factory reset wipe cache partition -------------------------------------------------------- < Triangle graphics with warning exclamation mark> in yellow color: E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command ================================ Selected apply sdcard and here is the results: ======================================= --Install from sdcard... Finding update package... Opening update package... Verifying update package... Installing update... cannot find update_binary Rooting your phone... Install from sdcard complete. ============================================== One last remark, I have a strange note regarding the downloaded firmware files (milestone_root.zip); That file was about 30 MB download size, I though I should extract it, so I did, and I was surprised that the extracted data size total is about 30KB !! I could find an exploitation, but things went well, and there were no problems. Finally, thank you again for your great help. >>Vivas<<
