    Hey guys,

    I got my pal the Motorola Droid or Milestone as they call it here, I booted up the device checked for updates and it was the latest one (2.1 update1) , I couldn't find the Android Market app, so the phone is really sad without the market place, How can I bring it back..any help will be appreciated

    Cheers

    You sir, are a life saver, thanks a lot,

    and just another question can I reflash the device with a UK variant? I believe it is the EMEA variant that disallows the market !!

    Thanks a lot for the link - I was tired searching for a link to official ROMs

    Cheers

    EDIT: I'm new to this reflash and stuff for the motorola, just wondering if I can use the following guide to re-flash it? http://www.mydigitallife.info/2010/05/29/how-to-root-motorola-milestone-on-android-2-1/

    hey there, womanne

    just download the sfb from the link given by Szadzik, and get the files such as RSDLite and drivers corresponding to your OS..

    Step 1: Install Drivers
    Step 2: Install RSDLite
    Step 3 : Plugin the device, and run RSDLite
    Step 4: browse for the downloaded SBF file in RSDLite
    Step 5 : check if the device is recognized by RSDLite,
    Step 6: select it and hit start, wait for a while ..once it reboots after installation you are good to go ;)

    Cheers
    Jackie Jagger

    PS: Thanks a bunch Szadzik

    If you have a European Milestone you can try the UK SBF, sure.

    I actually have the similar issue. My Milestone is the Chinese version, technically a Motorola XT702, and it has no Market or any Google apps.

    When I flash it, am I suppose to download a non-service version of 2.1, with WCDMA bands the same as my current version (850, 1900, 2100)? Thanks in advance.

    hi guys, I found a website sometime ago & it was very useful for answeer of all my quwstions, I think you can root & unroot your device safely with this website.
    with rooting, you can have everything everywhere, but it's your risk to do it or not...

    if you have market app in milestone & you can't open it, its because google banned some countries to use this service
