    this guide flashes your milestone with a 2.1 stock rom. then it shows you how to root it. it works perfectly if you follow the instructions. i had a problem with my bootloader but i got that fixed if you read above.

    So if I already have a stock 2.1 build, do I still follow all the steps? Will it work at all?

    Hmm. I seem to be having the same problem as stev. I also have the 90.78 bootloader, but when I tried flashing the 90.73 bootloader, but it would just hang at erasing flash memory.

    You can't downgrade the bootloader.

    Why? What's wrong with your recovery mode?

    Are you using X + Power to enter it?

    Yes I am using power and the x button. However it just goes to the bootloader.

    Excellent, thanks very much for this. Worked great with a French ROM too.

    Also, the link to the download for rsd lite v 3.6.0 seems to be broken on the linked website, any other links available?

    so people here asked whether or not they can go straight into rooting if they're already at 2.1 stock. I was wondering if anyone has the answer to that? because if possible i'd rather not downgrade first and lose all my stuff on my phone.

    oh ya, i have a 90.74 bootloader..should i flash the 90.73 anyway?
