Can we flash this rom on rooted Motorola Milestone, or only on Motorola Droid? Because milestone has locked bootloader.

Can this be installed using Clockwork Recovery, or just SP?

EDIT: It does work with Clockwork as well. Installation went smoothly, but no 3G. Installing again.

Thanks for the heads up.

No 3G? That's very odd.. did you try *228 after flashing? I always do, force of habit I guess, and I have 3G.

Is there another place you noticed black text on black buttons? If not, I'll send myself an attachment and test it out.. but it should be an easy fix, regardless.

Besides the black text on black button, this is a very good ROM. It's pretty quick. I haven't noticed much lag, even with a LauncherPro and a bunch of widgets running.

One thing you might think about adding to the next version is ChromeToPhone.

Random applications open themself.. like skype in the bckgrnd and gotta spam with task killer to kill it and its still coming back, also battery life is pretty poor. Gps, wifi, location, backgrnd data disabled and had to charge the phone twice today with not much use... I think maybe coz stuff in the bckgrnd keeps opening

It has the USB tether enabled by default, but I haven't bothered to try wifi tether aside from the included apps. The wifi tether included is far superior to what I've read Froyo includes, thus the reason it's included :)

Random apps do not open themselves on my phone, what do you have installed? I'm working on 29 hours of battery life with moderate usage myself, so again, what have you downloaded and installed?

Willing to help, but need more info on what you've done besides wipe data/cache and flash the ROM..

can no longer send audio clips via messaging client, i could on 2.1 roms and stuff. :\, any thoughts? it only lets you record audio and send it, no sending actual audio files *.mp3.
Most likely a Froyo issue and not the ROM itself, but I'll look into it further to see if I can iron it out for you :)
