    tac14, :welcome: to the Forum. Unfortunately we don't have a lot on the Milestone, but if you are going to ask for assistance this is the place to ask for it. Good luck.

    If you have the rebranded droid A854 you can root and put any of the stock or custom roms just like a Droid. You just have to make sure you do not mess with the Baseband as this is what allows your phone to function on its network. I helped someone with an Alltel Milestone and he had no problems except his MMS app didn't have full function(no pics). He was eventually able to extract some files from his original 2.1 rom and get it working. Don't know what they were or how difficult it was, but if you want to try. BACKUP YOUR STOCK ROOTED ROM B4 flashing anything. Make sure that you have a custom recovery by booting into it from power off, once you have custom(sp or clockworkmod)recovery you can always restore your stock rom if anything goes wrong. You can use ROM Manager to help make things a little easier, but make sure you know how to manually backup, restore, install in case there is a problem.

    Don't expect a ton of support from people here because nobody wants to screw your phone up, and it's unfamiliar to them. That said there are a few of you out there. There are a couple of threads about the Alltell phone if you search for them.

    Best of luck.

    Do a search for GOT (Group of Ten). You can get support there and a version of Froyo. Or wait a month or two for the official releases.

    I'm pretty sure the GOT rom is for the GSM milestone that is sold outside the US, not the cdma milestone.

    I've Done It!!!

    hey guys everyone wants to know how to get stock froyo on a alltel milestone well i figured it out....i have the latest build (2.2.1) running on a milestone with MMS and everything....you need a verizon droid a855, a milestone, both rooted and a little time....
    1.first backup all apps on the verizon droid with Astro or something similar and factory reset it so its clean for the milestone
    2.Download rom manager on both phones
    3.on the verizon droid, open rom manager and flash SPrecovery...this is the only way it would work for me
    4.boot into sprecovery on the verizon phone
    5.go to advanced backup and backup everything...name it what you want
    6.back it up!
    Now on to the milestone.
    7.take the micro sd card out of the verizon droid and put it in the milestone.
    8. open the market on the milestone and download APN manager.
    9. open APN manager and backup APN on the milestone
    10.open Rom manager and flash sprecovery like before and reboot...for some reason my milestone didnt like booting into sprecovery at first if it just goes to stock recovery or bootloader reset and try again...
    11.select advanced recovery
    12.pick the backup from the verizon droid you saved earlier and pick all options
    13.let it do its thing.
    14.after a reboot you will be on froyo!
    15.download APN manager again and restore the alltel apn backup from earlier
    Done!!
    you can now put the sd cards into their respective phones....the phone i tried this on has MMS and everything....just letting you guys know how it's done
