    I want to partition my sd card so i can install more apps on my Telus Milestone running 2.1update1, but every time i try it reboots my phone and does nothing. i even tried to make a rom backup and same thing happens, reboots phone. is there something im doing wrong? i set up the flash clockworkmod recovery and that went perfectly.

    ROM Manager doesn't work very well with the Milestone. You should try Team G.O.T.s OpenRecovery.

    Exactly my thoughts.

    Remember that when you partition it it will be erased completely so back it up.

    Uninstall it. If it's part of your system, use Root Manager to remove it from /system/app.

    Download GOT from their site. Unzip it, put the OpenRecovery folder and the update.zip on your SD card.

    No, because ROM Manager doesn't work on the Milestone.

    G.O.T. is simple.

    1) Google G.O.T. OpenRecovery.

    2) Download it.

    3) Unzip it.

    4) Put OpenRecovery folder and update.zip on your SD Card

    5) Turn off your phone.

    6) Hold down the camera button while powering your phone back on.

    7) When you get a screen with a triangle with an exclamation mark inside, press CAMERA and VOLUME UP at the same time until a menu pops up.

    8) Use your physical keyboards navigation pad to navigate to "apply update.zip from sdcard" should be the second thing on the menu.

    9) Depending on the version of GOT OR you got (1.14 or 1.44) there will be an area where it says Nandroid or Backup.

    For future reference, Google would've turned up much more detailed, and many, many more tutorials, all Open Recoveries are applied and entered the same way, excluding ClockWork.

    Applying the update.zip will change my rom? It will erase something? sorry, Im a new user! and also sorry by my english!

    Doing the image can I restore it and send the phone to the oficial service in case of a breakdown?

    the apply update.zip part is not gonna change anything on the phone. its much the same as booting the phone from the sd card oinstead of from internal rom. like booting a pc from the dvd drive instead of from the hard drive.

    also, if you need to send your phone to the service centre you can just reflash one of the stock motorola sbf files using rsd lite, both of which can be found via google really easily.

    Hey,
    trying to create a nandroid backup on my motorola milestone using G.O.T's open recovery, but Im getting stuck. When I select apply update.zip, my device brings up an error message of E: EOCD marker occurs after start of EOCD
    E: signature verification failed. Please advise. Im trying to create the backup so I can flash the cyanogen mod 7 custom rom. Im sick of my device rebooting without notice..
    Oh..Im running froyo 2.2.1
