Everything you know about updates is wrong! It turns out that this lovely bit of device we all call the Milestone will today be getting Android 2.2 Froyo, an update that Motorola themselves said would never again be updated as far as the mobile OS goes. Of course, this version of Froyo hasn’t come from Motorola, it’s come from an XDA hacker by the name of Dexter_nib, a ROM for you all to get your tasty treats on.
If you’re in the mood for some rooting and kerneling, you can today turn that XT720 into the Froyo machine you always knew you wanted it to be. All you’ve got to do is head over to the original XDA thread and get to downloading. The current release of this Froyo ROM is 1.2, and already nearly all of the bugs have been cut out and stepped on fervently.
Let us know if it works for you, and remember that whenever you install a ROM, root your device, or do any kind of hacking, you do so at your own risk. That said, feel free to leave some feedback for the developer here or in the original thread. Also he’s probably in want of some help fixing the final bugs, so donate your time in earnest. Also if you’ve got any more photos of odd places frozen yogurt has ended up, please do share them.[via XDA Forums]
