    Cellular South Flex File for A854?

    I do have the new MILER A854 sbf firmware file for the A854-5, but I was wondering if someone out there who got it thru more normal channels might happen to have the supporting .hs flex file for CES (Cellular South).
    Any carrier's flex file would be just fine, but I believe that at present CES is the only one to have released the A854 model, even though NTelos is slated to do so as well very soon.
    Thanks in advance!!!
    ...and PLEASE contact me if you have that flex or any other for the generic unlocked A854 model.

    The name DROID is licensed by Lucas Films/Arts and Verizon has to pay for it's use. Motorola rebranded the moto Droid A855 as the A854 and named it the Milestone for smaller/regional CDMA providers so they would not have to pay Lucas Films for the use of the name DROID. If the DROID name had stayed with the phone, the smaller/regional service providers wouldn't have agreed to use the device nor could they afford to pay for the name's use.

    Since I've found a group that has the A854 finally, bad news we don't get 2.2!! Is there anyone who has gotten a successful ROM of 2.2 running on their phone?

    Thanks in advance,
    Patrick

    Yes, any of the 2.2 based roms in Rom Manager have worked for me. Ive used Bugless, Liquid Frozen Yogurt, ect.
    Easy as can be.

    2C6C should be the standard bootloader for any of the A854/A855 models to the best of my knowledge this is not yet a later one. It may have been someone tried crossflashing an incompatible model, but I don't recognize 2C7C from anything. Make sure you are using RSD Lite 4.9 and the newest drivers 4.9.0. Here is most everything you should need. Make sure to install the reg file too (USBflag_android). The firmware is the latest Verizon A855 release. Good luck.

    RSD Lite 4.9.rar
    Handset_USB_Driver_32_v4.9.0.msi
    Handset_USB_Driver_64_v4.9.0.msi
    usbflag_android_8(20).zip
