    I'm sure some of you guys knew this but for those who didn't here's how to get 2.2 on milestone from a custom rom.

    Tested on my telus version (currenlty using version 0.1c because i'm lazy to update. Overclocked to 900mhz), can confirm flash working, Overclock working, fairly stable (been using it as my daily) and i still have my 3g and everything (though theirs a fix you have to apply before it works). Super user and everything works as well. Flash is nice and smooth and browser seems a bit faster

    I realize this isn't a true Froyo rom as it still used 2.1 boot loader but it enables flash which is the only worthwhile feature they added in 2.2

    This has 2.2 bits and pieces but still has the 2.1 kernal so cannot be called 2.2 in reality.

    True, but other than flash 2.2 is basically identical to 2.1 in terms of features. JIT would be nice but I seriously doubt the real world performance of it is worth all the hype it gets

    eg. nexus 1 is apparently upto 5 times faster with JIT... yet droid X still manages to murder it in realworld performance.

    So either snapdragon is really that bad of a chip (don't get me wrong I knew it was really bad but... that bad!?) or JIT is a lot of benchmark hype
