    Hi povo1 and welcome to AF. What's happening that you need a nandroid back up? It might be hard to come by.

    You could check Moto's site for an SBF file and use rsd lite to push the image. An SBF is the full factory restore for motorola phones. It will wipe everything out, including sdcard.

    You might not be able to downgrade. Is the bootloader unlocked on the milestone?

    I've dealt with D2 only (not the US Milestone) and if an SBF doesn't work, you are stuck with GB. Is there an issue you are trying to resolve that may be unrelated to the GB build?

    Ah, OK. I'll keep my eye out. I had never tried to downgrade, but thought with the SBF being the entire phone image it would work. I guess that isn't the case. I poked around the interwebs a bit and indications are you cannot downgrade.

    well there is a method to downgrade by restoring the nandroid backup and then flashing a froyo sbf

    Interesting, I wouldn't think that would work because the signature of the bootloader wouldn't match the kernel and the nandroid only restores the OS. Maybe it's been too long since I have mucked around with a Moto device and I have my wires crossed.:rolleyes:

    i think you have to downgrade the kernel first

    I think there are software security issues that won't allow the down grade with the locked boot loader. You might be able to trick it by restoring a nandroid of froyo and then flashing the froyo sbf before re booting but getting that nandroid will be tough.

    I am sorry to say you might be stuck with GB.
