Huge Milestone for the Motorola Milestone 2 (and Others)

Huge Milestone for the Motorola Milestone 2 (and Others)

Often times when devices are moved to the “Legacy and Low Activity” section of the XDA forums, they are quickly abandoned. The accumulated information sits and gathers dust, like Atlas Shrugged at a rural public library. But sometimes, you may just find that there are diehard fans, working away in their secluded corner of XDA Developers.

XDA Forum Member czechop has found a way to boot a custom kernel on his Motorola Milestone 2, while bypassing the bootloader signature check. Motorola in their infinite wisdom has locked their bootloaders. So, in a word, this is Huge. This was accomplished with the use of 2ndboot.  According to XDA Recognized Contributor nogoodusername this benefits not only the Milestone 2, but the Motorola Defy, Motorola Defy+, Motorola Bravo, and possibly the Motorola Milestone. To accomplish this, however, those devices would need their own kernel, ramdisk, devtree and rmdline. On a grander scale this has the potential to spawn great breakthroughs with OMAP3 powered devices.

Check out the original thread and thank you nogoodusername for the tip.
