Default Cyanogenmod 7 for Motorola Milestone[GUIDE]

NEWS: UNFORTUNATELY, the Cyanogenmod team has decided to stop supporting/developing for the Motorola Droid, the Milestone's twin, as the phone has aged too much. As you might have known, Android 4 aka Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) has been released, and the Droid's 2 years old already. It's been a king, but now it's retired and obsolete.

So, Cyanogenmod 7 (Android 2.3.7) is as far as the Motorola Milestone/Droid would get from the Cyanogenmod team. I don't know about other mods, but I doubt the Milestone/Droid hardware could handle that smoothly.

Hey guys. How u doing today.
I know u can probably google this topic like I did when i started, but the instructions sometimes aren't clear and do not work for you(did not for me, til I tried everything and figured out this way).

THIS guide is LONG. I know it is, I'M ITS GDAMN AWESOME CREATOR. I'm not trying to waste ur time, but its a pretty detailed guide IMO, so you might wanna fast-read through it before you decide it doesn't help you. Trust me i want to help I've been through all this sh**, two effing times.

For more information, read the first comment beforehand.

This is a hardcore guide, for the last barriers the Motorola Milestone can put up against you. If you've done all this and it doesn't work, not many peeps know what else to do.

EDIT: For advanced users, who knows what they're doing and just generally chilled, this isn't necessarily just Cyanogenmod.
YOU CAN JUST DO THE UNLOCKING PART, AND IT WORKS WITH ANY ROMS OUT THERE.
Check on the forum for a detailed list.
I'll name 2 good ones: Cyanogenmod, of course, and MIUI. Both is Gingerbread, i.e. Android 2.3.

CAUTION: The method of rooting in this guide is FULL root for stuffs like new ROMs, overclocking things. If u just want an easy root, WHICH DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO PUT Cyanogenmod on ur Milestone, try applications like z4root. If z4root 1.3.0 cant be installed, try an older version, perhaps 1.1.0. Full detailed guide here: TheUnlockr | Archive | Motorola Milestone How To’s (Advanced)

NOT APPLICABLE FOR MOTOROLA DROID. The steps shown here is intended to be used ONLY for a GSM Motorola Milestone.

The methods in this guide IS NOT entirely worked out by me. I only came up with the way to get over that E:Signature Verification Failed. This is more like a throughout summary of other people's methods, which works for A LOT of people(not guaranteed for yours, but probably would).

You should be reading this if:
-You want to know how to have Cyanogenmod 7 on your Motorola Milestone
-Stuck at E: Signature Verification Failed when trying to apply update.zip
-Got passed Signature Verification once, but then stuck again(OpenRecovery doesn't show up)

The last(third) reason up there, you might not even encounter, but I did have to go through, horribly, twice due to my own mistakes.

So a few words about my Milestone. It's a gift for my aunt who's in the Netherlands(Holland). She used it a lot, until recently, she got a new HTC Sensation. Yay for her. Anyways, she gave it to my sis, who is totally new at this whole smartphone thing, although I did tell her a lot about all these ROMs and updates. So one morning, she just throw it at me saying "put that good update whatever you told me on this phone". Obviously she doesn't know the stakes and the horrors. I bricked this thing 5 times. Just kidding, its kinda hard to actually brick ur phone these days, but cautions should be take.

The long guides in this post is not mine.
The pictures in this post belongs to their respective owners. None is mine.

It's an EU(not sure, but probably) GSM Motorola Milestone, with 2.1 Android.

I AM NOT TO BE HELD RESPONSIBLE IN THE CASE IF YOU DAMAGE YOUR DEVICE IN ANYWAY BY FOLLOWING MY GUIDE. ALTHOUGH I WILL TRY TO HELP YOU.

Just to calm you down, again, its not likely ull brick ur device, even though u did, there might some solutions, just try google or ask some devs nicely. The disclaimer up there is so tht i can get away in case ur phone exploded and wipe a city off the map or something. NO JUST KIDDING I WILL GET AWAY ANYWAYS.

Nuff said, lets get down to business.

STEP 1: First is to root your motorola. Some phones with a locked bootloader, in my case it is, could permanently turn off your phone(yes, BRICK) when you try to install a different ROM other than the stock ROM.

Follow this guide here(I dont wanna type them all again so hah)
There are others but I used this one and it seems clear enough.

How to Root Motorola Milestone

Motorola Milestone - the GSM version of Motorola Droid - came with Android 2.1 Éclair, which could be easily rooted using an application that used an exploit to fool the OS into enabling SuperUser rights for many applications. However, if you are looking to customize your device to the fullest and get access to Android features like tethering, screenshots, overclocking or if you need to install Custom ROMs on it, you’ll need to get full root access on your device by using the Vulnerable Recovery Flash method. Below mentioned are the instructions that help you do so:

Disclaimer: Please follow this guide at your own risk. AddictiveTips will not be liable if your device gets damaged or bricked during the process.

Requirements:

Download and Install Motorola Mobile Phone USB Drivers for Windows 32-Bit / 64-Bit
Download and Install RSDLite 4.6 [Lower versions are known to have detection issues with Milestone]
Vulnerable Recovery SBF with Bootloader RAMDLD 90.78 and lower.
Milestone Root Update.Zip
Instructions:

Install the USB Drivers on the your PC.
Plug your phone into the PC via USB Cable, let windows install and detect any internal devices on the Milestone.
Rename ‘milestone_root.zip’ to ‘update.zip’ and copy it on the root of your SD card.
Disconnect the phone, run RSDLite 4.6 on your PC , and connect the phone again. If you pull down the status bar and tap on ‘Select to manage your USB Connection’, you will see that the Milestone is now connected on Portals & Tools. If any other Motorola applications start off, ignore and exit them.
RDSLite will show your phone model number ‘A853’ and the status should be ‘Connected’.
Press ‘…’ button to browse for the ‘vulnerable_recovery_only_RAMDLD90_78.sbf’ and load it.
The ‘Start’ button would now be enabled. Please ensure the USB connection is secure and start the flash.
Keep an eye on the status bar, the Milestone will reboot into bootloader, flash the recovery firmware and start back up into RSD Lite showing a ‘Finished’ or ‘PASS’ status.
Exit RSDLite and Remove the USB Connection
Power off your phone. Press and Hold the ‘X’ button on the device and press the Power button, keep them help until the phone boots into recovery.(screen will show an exclamation mark inside a triangle)
Press and hold the Volume Up button and now press the Camera button to go into Android System Recovery.
You would be presented with four menu options. Scroll down to ‘Apply Update:update.zip’ using the D-pad and the golden key to enter.
Wait for the process to complete and select ‘Reboot System’ to let the phone boot back into Android.
Congratulations! Your Motorola Milestone is now rooted.

Done this step? AWESOME job. Yours is one of those lucky ones.

FAILED to the steps above? Damn go cry to ur mama, u'r on ur own its bricked.
NO IM JUST KIDDING. But cry if u want to.
Let me guess. Applying Update.zip did not work. Signature Verification Failerd BS kicked ur pride's ass and spat in its face. LETS GO HARDCORE.

Disconnect ur phone from the pc. Turn it off.

Press D-Pad Up + On button until the bootloader screen appears.
For mine, a blank screen appeared and the bootloader screen follows if i let go of the buttons.
If the phone start, turn it off and redo. Bootloader screen is important here.



Its something like this. NOTE that u should use the SBF with Bootloader RAMDLD 90.78 so the number on the top should say 90.78. (pic says 90.73)

It should say "OK to Program" on this bootloader screen.
Connect ur USB cable. Run RSD Lite. it might not show the model number, but as long as it says connected, u should be fine.

WAIT. I'd like to tell u this before u press Start to give u some preparations. When u press start, its only gonna take 3-4 seconds before ur phone reboots. Press D-Pad Up + On button IMMEDIATELY so that the phone wont boot to start. If it did start, REDO all these steps. Hold D-Pad Up + Power button until the bootloader screen appears.

So back where we left. Press ‘…’ button to browse for the ‘vulnerable_recovery_only_RAMDLD90_78.sbf’ and load it. Like above, secure the USB cable. Now wat til the phone reboots. Press D-Pad Up + On button IMMEDIATELY until the bootloader screen appears.

Wait til RSD Lite says "Finished" and "PASS"

Look at ur phone screen just in case its the last time u see it turned on. It probably IS NOT the last time u see it on.

'K, now press Power button to turn it off. "Press and Hold the ‘X’ button on the device and press the Power button, keep them help until the phone boots into recovery.(screen will show an exclamation mark inside a triangle)
Press and hold the Volume Up button and now press the Camera button to go into Android System Recovery.
You would be presented with four menu options. Scroll down to ‘Apply Update:update.zip’ using the D-pad and the golden key to enter.
Wait for the process to complete and select ‘Reboot System’ to let the phone boot back into Android.
Congratulations! Your Motorola Milestone is now rooted."

Bet tht pesky Signature Verification Failed error FAILED to show yup this time. 'Coz u pwned this punk, and the update.zip was applied successfully.

If u wanna check, try some rooted apps. Titanium BackUp was my choice. Try back up, delete those backups, and so forth.

Now, onto the sweet part. Cyanogenmod on my ass-kicking Milestone time.

STEP 2: Cyanogenmod of course. Get the latest version here, or whatever version u want. I personally took the latest one

CyanogenMod 7 for Milestone A853 | android.doshaska.net

You might wanna read through all that, but for most cases its gonna make u feel scared. If u feel excited and interesting, hell u could make a good coder. If u feel aroused WTH GTFO

Grab:
-The latest Google apps, which is the "gapps" part. Without these Cyanogenmod could still be installed, just without the Market and all. Nothing serious. R U KIDDING ME ITS EFFInG IMPORTANt JUST DOWNLOAD THT
-The latest working Cyanogenmod, of course. It's the "CM-.." thingy.
I'll just copy for ya'll the links on the dev's official website.
"download links:
CM 7.1.0 RC13 (11.08.14): https://github.com/nadlabak/android/downloads
Google Apps (for CM7): Latest Version - CyanogenMod Wiki
note: 2.3.5 gapps (for RC13) - http://cmw.22aaf3.com/gapps/gapps-gb-20110729-signed.zip"

If you're using 3G, try reading this part
" the included RIL files are for the European frequencies, if you are in Canada, US, Lat Am or Thailand, you will need to replace them to get 3g working
- if you are in France, you should replace ro.product.brand=MOTO_RTEU with ro.product.brand=MOTO_RTFR in /system/build.prop (the ap_gain_france.bin will be used then)"
I personally don't use 3G so you're on your own in this part. No just ki....Nope. Im serious this time. Try googling it or something.

K, follow the guide here:
Install Android 2.3 Gingerbread CyanogenMod 7 on Motorola Milestone

Just when you thought you had everything your Motorola Milestone could ever offer you, we’re here to let you know, there’s still more. The nightly release candidate builds for the famous Android 2.3 Gingerbread based CyanogenMod 7 is out for the Milestone and the latest release candidate, the RC3, already has over 16,500+ downloads in just 2 days. The ever popular release gives you an early taste of Gingerbread on your device, and is a lot closer to stability with most of the issues of the earlier releases already resolved.

Although CyanogenMod team have officially mentioned on the site that they are not officially supporting the CyanogenMod for the Milestone, they have done a pretty neat job porting the CM6 and would hopefully provide all their fans a working stable CM7 mod for the Milestone as well. If you want to try the release candidate, read on.


Disclaimer: Please follow this guide at your own risk. AddictiveTips will not be liable if your device gets damaged or bricked during the process.

What you’ll need:

A rooted Motorola Milestone. (See how to root a Motorola Milestone)
Latest CyanogenMod 7 Release Candidate 3 released 12th march 2011
Latest version of Google Apps released 7th March 2011
Open Recovery 1.46

[WRITER'S N0TE <MY NOTE PUNK RESPECT AND READ IT>: This guide is a little bit obsolete/outdated, so bear with it and use ur brain. The Cyanogenmod part I've already instructed you to download the latest version, also Google apps. OpenRecovery is the same. ModMyMobile Forums - Downloads - Open Recovery 1.46 ]

Pre-Flash Setup:

Extract Open Recovery 1.46 zip file.
Copy “OpenRecovery” folder and “Update.Zip” to SD card.
[WRITER'S N0TE <YES ITS ME AGAIN>: you should remove the old update.zip we used to root ur phone, and replace it with this one you found in Open Recovery zip file.]
Copy the already downloaded custom ROM & latest Google Apps in SDcard\OpenRecovery\updates
Flashing CyanogenMod 7 RC3:

Power off your phone.
Power it back on While pressing the ‘X’ button on the Keyboard. Hold ‘X’ until you see a Triangle with an Exclamation mark on it, and then let go of ‘X’.
Press & Hold the Volume up button and press the camera button. You’ll be taken to Android System Recovery <2e>.
Using D-Pad as cursor & golden button in the middle as ‘Enter’ , Perform a ‘Wipe Data/Factory Reset’ & ‘Wipe Cache Partition’.
Once done, apply SD card: update.zip.
You will be taken to Motorola Milestone Open Recovery Version 1.46.
In the menu, go to Nandroid > Backup All. This will place a backup of your current ROM in a folder called Nandroid on your SD card. Move it to a safe location later.
Perform a wipe data/factory reset followed by wipe wipe cache partition and wipe Dalvik cache.
Go to Apply Update, scroll to ‘update-cm-7.0.0-RC3-0.07-11.03.12-Milestone-signed.zip’ & apply.
Scroll to ‘gapps-gb-20110307-signed’ and Apply.
Go back to Main Menu and reboot system.
The first boot will take sometime so please be patient.
Congratulations! you now have Gingerbread based CyanogenMod 7 installed on your phone.
[WRITER'S N0TE <MY NOTE AGAIN HAHA I PWN THIS POST>: The names of the gapps and cyanogenmod files in this guide is outdated, and is not the same name as the ones I've instructed u to download. In reality, just replace them using ur brain. Com'on, u can, just try. If u cant then how the hell did u even manage to get to know "root" and "cyanogenmod"]

So all u who got to this step, Hi-Five


If u did not get here, thts fine. Go back and read the entire thing again, just so u know what to do, then ill show u a way around it.
Lemme guess, tht Signature Verification Failed managed to get u by the balls again. By now u should probably crapping urself on the chair. Thts disgusting go change before u continue.
In order to bypass this Signature Verification Failed Error, simply repeat the method up there. Here ill copy them down for ya cos im so nice.

Make sure u've unzipped OpenRecovery, and followed the instructions to put the right files in the right folder.

"Extract Open Recovery 1.46 zip file.
Copy “OpenRecovery” folder and “Update.Zip” to SD card.
Copy the already downloaded custom ROM(Cyanogenmod) & latest Google Apps in SDcard\OpenRecovery\updates"

Disconnect ur phone from the pc. Turn it off.

Press D-Pad Up + On button until the bootloader screen appears.
For mine, a blank screen appeared and the bootloader screen follows if i let go of the buttons.
If the phone start, turn it off and redo. Bootloader screen is important here.



Its something like this. NOTE that u should use the SBF with Bootloader RAMDLD 90.78 so the number on the top should say 90.78. (pic says 90.73)

It should say "OK to Program" on this bootloader screen.
Connect ur USB cable. Run RSD Lite. it might not show the model number, but as long as it says connected, u should be fine.

WAIT. I'd like to tell u this before u press Start to give u some preparations. When u press start, its only gonna take 3-4 seconds before ur phone reboots. Press D-Pad Up + On button IMMEDIATELY so that the phone wont boot to start. If it did start, REDO all these steps. Hold D-Pad Up + Power button until the bootloader screen appears.

So back where we left. Press ‘…’ button to browse for the ‘vulnerable_recovery_only_RAMDLD90_78.sbf’ and load it. Like above, secure the USB cable. Now wat til the phone reboots. Press D-Pad Up + On button IMMEDIATELY until the bootloader screen appears.

Wait til RSD Lite says "Finished" and "PASS"

This is where it gets a little bit different. Unplug ur phone, press Power to turn it off. Then while holding "X" on the slide-out keyboard, press power button until the triangle sign with the exclamation mark appears, "/!\".
Press Volume Up+Camera Button. Then apply update.zip
You should be taken to a red screen now, tht says Open Recovery. Good. You could finish this on ur own now.
Here's what I did

Using D-Pad as cursor & golden button in the middle as ‘Enter’ , Perform a ‘Wipe Data/Factory Reset’ & ‘Wipe Cache Partition’.
Once done, apply SD card: update.zip.
You will be taken to Motorola Milestone Open Recovery Version 1.46.
In the menu, go to Nandroid > Backup All. This will place a backup of your current ROM in a folder called Nandroid on your SD card. Move it to a safe location later.

[Yes I skipped a part no harm so far]

Go to Apply Update, scroll to ‘update-cm-7.0.0-RC3-0.07-11.03.12-Milestone-signed.zip’ & apply.
Scroll to ‘gapps-gb-20110307-signed’ and Apply.
Go back to Main Menu and reboot system.
The first boot will take sometime so please be patient.

Your Motorola Milestone should now be running Cyanogenmod.

Personally, my problems did not stop here as I, foolishly, forgot to download google apps for my phone, so I had to do it all over again, and those pesky Signature Verification Failed errors, surprisingly, came up again. Now my phone's alright, so I can be probably sure that ur problems do end here with Cyanogenmod on ur Milestone.

The steps should be followed as it is in order to prevent unwanted damaged to your phone.
If you encounter any problems, try reading the guide carefully, post some comments for help, or email me at dont-email-me-cos-ill-probably-delet...ys@nowhere.com

Best of Luck to ya'll

So, just to give you a better understanding of why I wrote such a long guide. There are others, much shorter than mine. And they work, too, perfectly, for most folks. But, this is for some Android devices with a 2.1 official update that still has their bootloader locked.

In a few unlucky situations, the errors that you encounter after you thought you've unlocked your bootloader, is because of the way your system works. Right after you wrote new codes on it, when you reboot it, it overwrites its own codes on the new ones. This is like restarting whatever you just did, without you knowing. So, as mentioned above, you gotta act quick before it boots, else you'll have to redo it all.

If you already know what to do, skip the words-you don't need to read them, most are boring, descriptive stuffs- and get to the vital, action parts and bust this bastard phone.

It's quite troublesome, I know. My case was worse. The phone wasn't mine. It was my sister's, and omg it's got scratches and metals sticking outta every corner. I got electrocuted if I touched those parts when it's plugged in. And yea, it also has this problem. So I've had to endure it all, holding the phone down all the while getting shocked, then doing it again several times, always hurriedly. After all this i looked like Michael Jackson before he was white. No jk, I didn't get burnt, but I didn't feel good either.

But anyways, if you succeed, it's permanent.

As I said before, this applies only to a few situations, and I know there are advanced people out there, who doesn't need to read through it all, I'll just tell them what's going on, bam it's done.

...I know I had a hard time as well. But its key that once RSD flashes the Vulnerable Recovery that it doesn't reboot to normal start screen, as the Milestone re-flashes itself at every start. It needs to boot into recovery.

There's great info here;Vulnerable recovery for Motorola Milestone - root any known firmware version | android.doshaska.net

...hope you get it working

Sorry for late reply I'm a sophomore and pretty busy :P

@scorpio.pilot
which step were you stuck at? Also did u finished getting Cyanogenmod on ur phone and stuck again, or still trying to get CM into ur phone?

@LifeInAnalog
Yeah I know it reboots once RSD flashes thats why you gotta take the chance to put it into Recovery before it's done booting into the normal Android.
Its weird that even if RSD flashed several times successfully, tht Signature problem is pretty hard to bypass. Only time it wont show is when RSD flashes ur phone, says "rebooting device" and you just press those buttons (D-Pad Up + On button) right into Bootloader

Stuck at M screen? I need some more details to help you here....what happens after that?

If it just stuck there and reboot normally, you're not pressing the buttons right or your buttons have problems

If it just stuck there, NOT loading at all, showing that M ALL DAY LONG (i mean as in just doesn't do anything) than its some other problems

So I go though and clear everything, do the update for cm7 with no errors and then reboot the phone. When it restarts it goes strait into recovery mode and I go though the menu and tell it to reboot again. After that restart it will get stuck on the M. I have let it set for 15-20 mins and it just stays on the M. From what I have read it may take a while to boot up the first time but it shouldn't get stuck on the M for so long. I got frustrated trying to download different cm7 files so I tried getting the latest MIUI version. Ran that update and it worked like a charm. I'm thinking either I have multiple corrupt .zip files or I just didn't wait long enough for it to boot up. I still would like to try to figure out whats going on, I would like to give cm7 a try.

Ok I'm just going in circles here...

I keep getting stuck at this point>>> Go to Apply Update, scroll to ‘update-cm-7.0.0-RC3-0.07-11.03.12-Milestone-signed.zip’ & apply.

I've put the files on the SD card in the folders specified but it's not an option, just don't see the files to update...

Any support please!
