    Hi all!

    I just rooted my Telus Moto Milestone running 2.1 and have been trying to do a Nandroid backup before I install any custom ROMs. The problem is that when I try and enter recovery mode (by pressing the camera and power button) I am not given the usual /!\ screen but rather a black screen with white words as follows:

    Bootloader
    90.74
    Err:A5,69,35,00,2F

    Battery OK
    OK to Program
    Connect USB
    Data Cable

    I should mention that this happens even when I try and get the phone to enter recovery mode by using "adb recovery reboot recovery".

    Any suggestions? I would greatly appreciate any help at all.

    Many Thanks!

    I wasnt aware that custom ROMs were available for the Milestone... I thought rooting was the best you could do.

    hey LtKen, thanks for the quick reply.
    I am aware that the bootloader is locked out but this should not mean that I would be unable to create a nandroid backup, or enter recovery mode for that matter.

    That's the boot loader. Recovery is entered by holding X and pressing the power button.

    I just dont see the point, since you cant really do anything with it...

    wow huh, sounds like the Milestone really sucks ( not spec wise but how it's locked down ). I dont understand why they dont just leave security holes open on all android phones. i mean after all the ability to hack, root, and customize your phone to how you want it is what draws a lot of people to android in my opinion.
