How to Root the Motorola Milestone and gain Full User Access

The Motorola Milestone is the European version of the Motorola Droid. As his over-ocean relative, you can now root the Motorola Milestone. If you choose to do this, you will gain full user access over your smartphone, having the ability to modify themes, icons, firmware and install forbidden applications. In a few words, unleash your phone from the developers.

Also, this process has its own drawbacks. If not done correctly, the user might end up with a bricked phone and 100% with a lost warranty. SoftSailor does not take any responsibility for damaged devices. Also, it works only if you have the Android 2.0 version installed.
