Introduction
Here is a (another) complete guide for your Milestone. I know there are already several how-to guide threads, but I think they aren't really clear enough. That's why I made a new guide. I'm using several posts for several subjects to keep this guide as clear as possible

Instal Open Recovery
In this section of the guide we are going to install Androidiani OpenRecovery 3.3. I think this is the best open recovery available at the moment.
Link to the release thread thread on xda forum: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=796679


Requirements


How-to
1. Install the USB driver + RSD Lite on your computer, just go through the installation wizard.
2. Extract the downloaded zip containing the .sbf file.
3. Start RSD Lite.
4. Startup your Milestone in bootloader mode (using power button + d-pad up) You will see a screen containing bootloader at the top.
5. Connect your Milestone via USB with your PC. Now you will see your device in RSD Lite.
6. Browse for your downloaded .sbf file in RSD Lite and click on start.
7. Wait till this is completed, your Milestone will reboot when completed. If RSD Lite Tool will tell you to manually reboot, reboot into your bootloader (power + d-pad up)
8. Now we need to put the open recovery on your SD card, so extract all the content from Androidiani OpenRecovery 3.3 on your SD card. The archive contains an update.zip + an OpenRecovery folder, they both need to be at the root of your SD card.
9. Now we need to boot into the open recovery to test if it is succesfully installed, to do this you need to boot your Milestone using power + camera button (if this isn't working try using power + x). Hold this until you see a caution sign.
10. Press volume up + camera to go further. You also can try to press first volume up and then camera (that worked for me)
11. If all went well you will see 4 options: Reboot, apply update.zip, wipe data, wipe cache. We need to choose apply update.zip
12. The open recovery will now start up. You can navigate through the options using your d-pad


Note
You will lose all your data if you are following this guide

If you applied an OTA update before, there is a script run at every system boot that checks and re-flashes the recovery when its checksum doesn't match. In such case, you have to avoid booting to android after the vulnerable recovery flash. Boot directly to recovery when RSD Lite restarts the phone (hold camera button) and from there remove the /system/etc/install-recovery.sh file.
rm -f /system/etc/install-recovery.sh

GOT is based on OR 1.45 while AOR is based on OR 1.46. If you use the new nandroid version while backing up ( each image file has its own md5 file, while the old version uses 1 md5 file for all images ), it should work.

I haven't tried it out.

    I used this page for vulnerable recovery...
    http://android.doshaska.net/rootable
    The sbf is only 4 mb which is downloadable here http://www.mediafire.com/?jzzjmmrvwkz

    Recently I redid my brother's phone and he had already downloaded the full 100mb Telus one and it didn't work either.
    It would reboot during the process and fail and could not it would not load up open recovery when the x key and selecting update.zip.

    This small 4 mb sbf worked.

    It did act funny and RSD Lite gave an error again on the reboot BUT this time I was able to load up AOR after rebooting again and everything else went smooth as butter.

    Please update the first post with sbf_flash for Linux and Mac:

    Not everybody use Windows. thanks.

    For sum reason when I applied the .sbf file from the Telus Canada link. I don't have service. I tried resetting my phone to factory and applying a recently made back up but it still says no service. my milestone model # is A853

    EDIT: nvm I found the problem, I apparently got a European model even tho I bought it in Canada.
