    As I have been gently advised not to go off topic in the Droid 2.1 thread I thought I would place any info on the Milestone 2.1 here for any who are interested.

    Improvements.
    Live Wallpapers
    Old Launcher, but now with 5 home screens (EDIT: You can choose yourself if you want 3/5/7/9 homescreens in settings / display & sound / number of home panels)
    Facebook sync works / app installed as default
    Very nice new camera interface (pic)
    DItto for camcorder
    Quickoffice
    Mp3-skipping problem fixed / still old app thou
    Browser lag fixed,
    Market notification bug fixed

    Brilliant. Can you say how you managed it? It doesn't seem to be covered in the Milestone section or I may have missed it.

    What I did was, I received a nandroid backup of 2.1 which I flashed using adbrecovery. Everything works great.
