    Hi - I'm scratching my head about this rooting business.

    My Milestone has 2.1 and I'd like to root it.

    As far as I can understand I can

    1) Find the Android 2.0 ROM for Milestone
    2) Flash back to 2.0 using RDS Lite
    3) Root it
    4) Upgrade to 2.1 (using RDS lite OR Motorola update) and still be rooted

    Or I have to wait and see if someone makes it possible to root 2.1 directly. But this may not happen.

    Any flaws with my reasoning?

    I finally solved it myself - see the MILESTONE 2.1 update and root guide thread...
