Motorola Proven Wrong Yet Again: Milestone XT720 Gets Froyo!

In their own site, Motorola made the statement that the XT720 would not be receiving an upgrade to Froyo and that it would remain as an Eclair-exclusive device. Little did they know that the good old people in the hacker community had been working hard to prove them wrong. Well, it seems that the fruits of the labor put on this project paid of greatly as XDA member Dexter_nlb posted a rom, and kernels to turn your XT720 into the delicious frozen treat also known as Froyo. Everything seems to be functional and the newer releases have many of the bugs ironed out. There are only a few bugs being reported for 1.2, which just proves how advanced this port currently is.

If you try this and encounter any problems, please make sure that you leave some feedback for the dev to look into.

so here is the new edition with uk kernel, basically pretty much the same as before with correct sensor drivers now.

You can find more information in the original thread.
