Motorola Milestone also known as DROID is the WCDMA/GSM version of Motorola Droid, and it is amongst the few Android devices for which we have not featured custom ROMs in the past. All that is about to change as we bring you an Android 2.2 FroYo based custom ROM for the device so if you are still running an earlier version of Android on your Milestone, read on to learn how to get FroYo up and running on it.
This ROM has been developed by XDA-Developers forum member Dexter_nlb and is called MotoFrenzy. Strictly speaking, it is not a ROM but a backup image that you can restore to your device using recovery. It is fast and stable, and has most of the features including the GSM, GPRS and HSPA Radio, camera, GPS, Bluetooth, ADB, USB, SD Card, A/C Charging, Video playback, G-Sensor and 3D games. Video recording and camera focus are not working right now.
