UK Milestone users awoke to some good news this morning, as Motorola Europe’s Facebook page announced that Android 2.1 would finally be available for their phones. Forgoing the over-the-air option, Motorola opted to update their phones through PC download, a method similar to the roll out of 2.1 in Canada . Users can find details for the update here, and follow the instructions to download the new firmware.
As a Canadian Milestone user, I can attest that the update is a painless procedure that takes only 10 minutes at maximum. Expect your phone to need two restarts (one while updating, and the other to finalize everything), and to be unable to receive calls or text messages during the update. Long live the Commonwealth!
