Thanks to r2beta0 for fixing the issuse related to /data and overclocking.

Thanks to sw_acer for porting and the original link here http://bbs.gfan.com/android-2194589-1-1.html

This bootmenu is ported from Defy !

Install tutorial:
1. Apply Bootmenu v0.8.6-v2.zip via CWM (droid2bootstrap);

2. Then reboot, your phone should enter bootmenu. Press volume up/down key to highlight and power button to select/confirm;

3. Enter boot->Set default: ->[choose the default boot method you want] ;

4. In normal cases, you will see the led goes blue for 1.5 sec during booting and then you can enable bootmenu by pressing volume keys.

Features:
1. Overclocking;
2. Choose to enable Custom Recovery 3.1.0.0 or Stock Recovery;
3. Support adb in Custom Recovery mode

Tips: Not recommend to set default boot method as 2nd-init or 2nd-boot if you are not a DEV. If you have set it to 2nd-int or 2nd-boot and cause bootloop. Don`t flash sbf first. Because you can re-enter bootmenu by pressing volume key when you see LED goes blue during booting. And then please set back to boot bootmenu or normal boot. So your phone will not bootloop anymore.

Hmmmm... my phone bootloops. Now I've got to flash it.
Have you choose the wrong boot method, try to select normal boot. You can press vol key to re-enter the bootmenu when the LED light up instead of flashing sbf.

Edit: Here in my phone it works fine...

Yeah. That's exactly what I did. I even fomatted cache partition. The phone was forcing the boot the whole time. Even when I pulled the battery the phone started to boot normally, which means, that I couldn't enter CWM.
After that I deinstalled the boot menu resulting in .sbf-ing the phone.

When the phone boot to logo M, you should see the LED right-up goes blue for 1.5 sec. During this 1.5 sec, press any volume keys and you will enter bootmenu again. And then you can choose to enable CWM or any other thing.

Damn those guys of 3 Austria. Now I found the reason for not booting. My SIM card is totally destroyed. Now I put a second SIM card in there and surprise: My beloved Milestone 2 boots normally.

This is not a real port... The hole bootmenu, CWM recovery and overclock modules are built for Defy. The only things that changed from the bootmenu that you can download from Market are the icons and (not sure) you can navigate with the keyboard.

Well, if you want a real MS2 recovery use the MS2Bootstrapper.apk (Chinese, it's somewhere in the forum) or build a new bootstrap recovery from source.

Is it compatible with the latest last china GB leek?
And can we replace CWM3(from defy) to CWM4(from MileStone2Bootstrap_GoAPK.apk)?
Yes it is compatible. But don't try to install Milestone2Bootstrap_GoAPK side by side with any other CWM/Bootmenu.

The recovery isn't working fine. Something is wrong with /data and recovery can't mount or format it as expected.
Edit: Ok, could get the darn thing to work here :) Endless7, you have to edit /system/bootmenu/recovery/sbin. The scripts tune2fs (hijack) and mk2fs (hijack) are pointing to mmcblk1p25 instead of p26.

I have build a new one, but I cant test it yet. Now I am running MIUI, install any other recovery will break the 2nd-init for ROM.
