    Yes you can but you'll loose root after you upgrade. I've never updated OTA but when I installed the 2.1 update I lost root.

    I installed the 2.1 update but it caused problems with some apps. I was unable to find and install Bedside and a few other apps I consider very useful.

    @Szadzik
    Did you use market enabler on 2.0.1 or did you have default market access for paid apps also?
    If it's the later it might be that the market doesn't recognize your Milestone as being a Milestone because the system reports as Milestone with 2.1 which doesn't yet officially exist. I don't have that problem since I'm not using paid apps.

    I am in the UK so I did not need Market Enabler; I had access to all paid apps.

    Try finding Sleep Log Automatic (by Bartczak) and see if you can find it.

    Since paid apps are not available here in Slovenia and I'm not using market enabler (not sure it exists for Milestone 2.1 yet) I can't find that app.

    It is a FREE app.

    That is what I meant by apps missing from the Market when using the 2.1 ROM.

    Then it's probably not supported for Milestone+2.1 yet. If you can get the APK any other way and install it with a file explorer it might work. There are tons of APK's on the internet.

    As I've said, the 2.1 is not official on the Milestone yet so it's for testing purposes only.
