I understand a number of users managed to root the Milestone 2 with Z4Root.
My question is: once I root it, how do I upgrade the Android os to future versions?
I understand OTA updates won't work, but will I still have the option to download the update from Motorola's website? After all, the 2.2 update for Milestone 1 was never released OTA.
Some people sugget that, when a new Android version comes along, users of a rooted phone should just load a custom rom with that version, but I'm under the impression this is not possible with the Milestone (1 nor 2), or is it?
There is no update expected at this time, but to get rid of root you can flash a stock SBF and then update will go through.
What update are you waiting for? Motorola never promised any updates.
