    If Motorola screws milestone owners this bad they can guarantee that none of them will ever buy a moto product again. They can also guarantee a lawsuit because the EU frowns on this stuff especially when the US Droid receives 2.2. That will show a precedent in the EU courts eyes.

    The Milestone was officially released in my country on 31st March and it's been only about three months since then. If they don't release Android 2.2 for it a lot of people are gonna be pissed.

    If the Milestone was advertised and sold as "Flash Ready" and by doing so suggesting that it was to be updated to 2.2 and Moto doesn't deliver they will have a SERIOUS legal issue on their hands. The EU is very aggressive in these matters especially when consumers are getting shafted. If Moto does indeed choose to neglect the Milestone and not update it they will more than likely be forced by European courts to refund the purchase price of the unit to all existing customers and pay a hefty fine due to false or misleading advertising. If the EU can make MS fold and pay fines then Motorola will be small fish and they will get turned into chum by the courts.

    I don't know anything about when or about different countries so don't ask. I do know that there is a build for Froyo on Milestone within Motorola. It is done and it works.

    Its possible we wont get gingerbread but not getting froyo is plain stupid, dont worry guys, im sure this isnt true, if the droid is going to have froyo, theresno excuse they're virtually identical, motorola would get even more bad press for this than for locking their bootloader

    I've sat on this piece of news for a few days and I still can't understand why they wouldn't get froyo onto it. They might end up placing froyo on it, but much much later in the future.

    I will advise all of my friends never to buy a Motorola and I will never buy a Motorola myself ever again. The Milestone was supposed to be a pivotal device, a real "milestone" for the company and their entry in the 21st touchscreen mobile century. However they have screwed us over and over and over again. The locked bootloader, the camera issues with 2.0, the browser lag with 2.0.1 and the false advertising of the phone being "Flash ready". I mean COME ON!!! They could've made it the geek phone of Europe and made ridiculous amounts of money, but they are a bunch of morons who don't have any idea what they are getting into. And now they are releasing device, after device, without bringing anything substantial to the table. Motorola is a follower in the steps of Google, Apple and HTC - they provide no innovation, no original ideas and no real connection with the end user.
    They used to have an ad that said "HELLO MOTO", all I can say is - "BYE BYE MOTO"

    Do you know what I always find funny on the internet, the shear ability of it to allow people to completely freak out and go to the extreme.

    Just consider this, the apps processor in the Milestone is exactly the same as in the original Droid. So if the Froyo update is being done for Droid, than the move to Milestone isn't that big. The biggest challenge is the carrier testing (because they test updates as well).

    Calm down. Only one phone has officially gotten Froyo so far (ironically it is a phone that is no longer for sale). You aren't missing out yet.
    And to emphasize the point, I have a Milestone with Froyo on it today. (don't ask, I can't give you the sbf)

    not that easy...droid bootloader is not locked and milestone bootloader is lock..milestone is depend on motorola to be have froyo...

    and i am sure you dont have a froyo on your milestone you have dexter motofrenzy rom (the froyo wannabe rom)
    [ROM] MotoFrenzy (Froyo 2.2 for milestone) - xda-developers

    dexter motofrezy rom is quite good..but thats not a froyo..its based on 2.1 kernel..

    It is not easy for hackers to load Froyo, but for the software guys in Motorola that locked Bootloader is not even an inconvenience (since they have the private key).


    And yeah, I have Froyo. I had one of the software guys flash it for me.

    If you you do have froyo I'm sure it wouldn't be too difficult to prove via video.

    In the case of Flash, let's be clear - it's Adobe who dropped the ball here, not Motorola. They were only going by what Adobe was telling them, it was supposed to be released around the same time as Android 2.0.1 and was thus advertised as such.

    Now, for whatever reason, it seems Adobe didn't get their crap together and get it working, and it turns out that for some reason they made it only work with Android 2.2+, even though they claimed it was supposed to be working much sooner. Perhaps, they didn't see acceptable performance prior to 2.2 with the new JIT compiler - but for whatever reason, the lack of Flash is Adobe's fault.

    However, since there finally IS a version of Android that works with Flash; and it works on the Motorola hardware; it SHOULD be released. I think the jist of the statement by Moto is that it's not strictly up to them, and it all depends on how the various carriers feel about it. Moto cannot directly release an OS, and if a given carrier doesn't want to test/approve a build, Moto can't really force them to.

    It will sound like BS, but I am okay with that.
    I will never post a screen shot of my phone on the web. To many times do those get traced back to the person that did it. Especially when you are running tracked software builds. Not worth the risk just to get your approval.

    lol never post a screenshot of your phone on the web? how does that identify who you are? unless you also show your IMEI and everything (a smart guy would blur out incriminating info). the fact that you're even posting here is more traceable than a screenshot. sigh...

    I have a different Kernel version and Build number than is publicly available so seeing that could narrow it down, but you are probably right. Ok, last post than. Bye.

    My take on the Flash thing is this. Adobe discovered they needed more speed (processor) to run it optimally. So 2.2 is faster and almost gets it there. But, as their own web site shows (check it for yourselves) it still was not right, still not optimal so they gave a minimum processor speed of 800Mhz. Yes if nothing else is running Droid/Milesotne will run it but as soon as you get three or four other apps using memory and processor interrupts it's stuffed. My own grassy knoll theory but I wait to be proved wrong.
