Default Custom Rom Problems

I rooted my phone using Universal Androot, then I used Rom manager to switch to a custom rom. It didnt work to install the first Rom I tried. So wiped everything and then retried from the recovery tool. But now on every rom I try while flashing from recovery mode gives me an error saying assert failed.

What ROM's are you trying to flash to your Milestone? Are you sure these are ROM's for the Milestone and not for the Droid (different phones).

I heard that ROM Manager doesn't work on our Milestones.

Default Roms

I tried EclairMODv3b, 2 versions of miui, and cm7 all from recovery mode. These were found on unlockr. I only tried to used ROM manager on one of them(i think miui). I wonder if it is a problem with my recovery, clockworkMod?

Are you sure you chose a Milestone ROM? None (except CM7, but you can find that almost on any phone) is figured on Unlockr under Milestone:
Motorola Milestone ROMs | TheUnlockr

Or are you sure you have a Milestone and not a Droid?

I have an A853, so different phones.
I think you can just flash the Droid roms, since what you have is a Droid (unlocked kernel) that just happen to have the name 'Milestone'

Motorola Droid ROMs | TheUnlockr

I'm on CM7 at the moment. It's running pretty well.

I would suggest to this forum to make that more clear. I may just be me, but it was not obvious. But thank you so much. I got CM7 up and running it is just great.

It's not really this forum's fault, most people with a Motorola Milestone will find answers here. Maybe they should have put the model number with the name...

Anyway, glad your problem was solved.

Wow. I have an A854 as well. Has this been clarified that you don't need rsdlite or a vulnerable recovery sbf flashed prior to updating? How should I go about updating? I'm so confusded. I just wanna get to 2.2 with cyanogen.

Yeah, if you you want 2.2, then you are going to want cyanogen mod 6 for droid. I used Universal Androot to root my phone, the rom manager app to get clockwork mod (hacked recovery) flashed, then updated manually. Here is the rom:

CyanogenMod Mirror Network - Powered by TDRevolution

Good luck, I would love to help if you need more. Ive done it, you can too.
