[Q] Updating Telus Milestone to 2.2+
I have a Telus Milestone on Simple Mobile. I am on 2.1, and I want to update to 2.2 or beyond(need flash, apps on sd, etc), but after searching around here, I realize I cannot do this with rom manager as I tried. I'm not exactly sure what instructions I should take, as I've seen a few guides.
A couple of questions(besides the obvious):
1. Is it possible to complete this process and retain my media(photos, sms, mms, contacts, installed apks, etc)?
2. I have this on simple mobile(which is confusing me if I should use a certain file of a different region), does this make any difference?
3. Main question: Which guide should I follow, I see 2 different rooting/updating threads, but they seem to indicate different processes, some links are down and dont want to make a mistake.
I currently have installed the motorola drivers. It'd be great if someone could simply link a guide I should follow, and a mod/rom(smoothest running 2.2 or above) to install.
Thanks for the help.
