Hi,

I've got Froyo on my Milestone by update on 07.01.11. At a time i've known that Froyo update is coming, and was thinking that its global update. Since it looks it is not, I've made nandroid backup. The firmware version is SHOLS_U2_05.25.0, so a bit older than Asia one. But the firmware configuration version is European (i don't know if it changes anything).

It is pure unbranded android 2.2.1.

As i cannot even post links, here they are in raw format anyone repost it.

Please, can some moderator move this thread to the right section

Nope. I'm using this system version for almost 3 weeks, and don't have any problem. As I believe all 2.2.1 features work correctly, battery lasts for 16-30h with 3G and synchronization on all the time.

There are only some small issues:
- SMS over 160 signs sometimes get mixed up - (but im not sure if this isn't operator issue)
- light sensor sometimes stops working (changing to max brightness, and back to auto solves issue)
- installing too much apps slows system seriously (i think it's lack of ram)

Supported languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Polish, Turkish, Greek(? im unsure, but probably) and Chinese (at least i think so)

There is one thing that makes me wonder.

It's my phone.

The thing is that I've got this soft as normal Motorola Update, through the network. Update was around 70 MB in size (system.img is around 170 MB), and it didn't erase any app or data.

If that was mistake by Motorola it's moreover strange, because first I've ignored update for couple of hours (didn't want to do it with low battery), and they've kept asking me every 30 minutes if i want to install update.

Anyone can explain me why I've got this update, and others not?

Possibly as a test push to a limited number of users to see if there are any issues that people notice (that are bad enough for them to call Motorola or their carrier) and to make sure that the updates are working, before the roll it out to everyone else. Kinda like google does on the nexus one.

Firmware configuration version says it's EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), but there are not any Middle Eastern or African languages. No Eastern European languages too. So it's probably Western European version.

It leaked in Poland, Era operator. But the phone comes from UK, so it may be UK leak.

Poland is in Central Europe (at least they say so to us :p).

Here it looks as they've counted it with West. It's strange that there is Polish language version, but no Czech, Slovakian etc.

Btw. I have no idea if it will work in Russia, but probably should work correctly.

Where I can get proper "update.zip" for this nandroid backup? Or the vulnerable recovery for 2.2.1? Cuz when I try to get into OR, my phone says:

... bla bla bla ...
"E:EOCD marker occurs after start of EOCD.
E:signature verification failed
Installation aborted".

And it fails.

That's because you do not have vulnerable recovery installed to run OR. What's your bootloader version?

These links may help.

I have one more question.

On stock 2.1 I had a nice feature with ringtone. I could change it level by volume + and - buttons, and it had three steps. 1st was normal ringtone, 2nd - only vibra, 3rd - silent. Now, in 2.2.1 I have only normal ringtone and only vibra. Does Motorola remove it in froyo?

Or anyone know how can I make it to work again.
