    First thread ever :) because for once i think this problem is only specific to me . so i reallly NEED YOUR HELLPP!! :(


    i bought a motorola milestone online thinking we werent getting it on canada anymore . which i think is UK version? so i accepted the fact that i had no 3G on it and was aware that the phone frequency and cariier frequency were different.

    so when i decided to root my phone according to:

    MILESTONE 2.1 update and root guide - Android @ MoDaCo

    i didnt know which SBF file to pick the telus canada one where im from or UK where the build number was the same as mine and where i think my phone was from.. i couldnt unzip the gz file and it kept gicing me errors on the telus canada sbf file so decided on flashing the telus canada one. (and was hoping maybe my 3G would even work.

    everything ran smoothly and my phone was rooted but now i realize i have no signal on my phone at all. no text or voice calls.. just wifi.

    i did my research and people suggested that i put APN which i did but that didnt solve the problem

    also i read that for custom roms theres those 5 files
    File_Audio , File_Audio2 , File_GSM , File_Seem_Flex_Tables , generic_pds_init
    that i was suppose to copy and then replace after the root but i was stupid enough not to back up..

    so now im stuck and i dont know what to do.. is there an sbf file i can use cant even restore to factory settings because i dont think itll change my firmware..

    Please help. im desperate..
    MUch thankss .


    or maybe someone has a 2.1 nandroid back up they can share?

    Flash it again with UK SBF, root it and try replacing the 5 files for band support.

    thanks for the reply, :)

    yeah i considered both but ive been searching everywhere for a uk sbf. i only found one in one site. but everytime i extracted the gzip file it gives me errors.

    and the 5 replacement files i have yet to find too. ive been seraching it but no one actually has the real file.
