  1. Why am i not able to download to the update….its says update not available
    I am form India….Anybody updated already….???

  2. That’s because this update is for ENG (donno what this means specifically maybe a different region) if you follow this link. if you look for an update specifically for the region INDIA and read the PDF “what’s in this update” you do NOT get 2.2. This means 2.2 officially not yet available for India

  3. same here.. it seems update is not yet rolled out for india.. i tried online using motorola software update.. dont knw y moto cant specify which countries they have rolled out, instead of mentioning something like “update rolled out in select countries”
    Anyways, now the options are
    – goto moto service center and check if they have it…
    – check again after 3-4 days if update is out for India

  4. Does anyone know what regions are available? Im in SA and its not available here either. Was suppose to be early 1st quarter. Sigh….

  5. Guys, yahoooo!!! I just installed the motorola software update and upgraded my Milestone to Froyo (2.2.1)!! I’m in SA at the moment. cheers guys..have fun!!

  6. its working guys ..m from india ..and the software downloaded 2.2.1 (froyo )
    on the first attempt!

  7. @ fox : How’d u get that right? Im in cape town and checked right now and theres absolutely NOTHING.
    Currently running “2.1update1”
    Checked OTA and using the pc suite 🙁

  8. @Joseph : I was running 2.1u1 as well. I connected the phone to the PC and ran the Motorola software update and it picked it up. not sure y urs is not up. but one funny thing I noticed was that in the update software it said my mobile was made in UnitedKingdom. P.S: the update is not available as OTA 🙁 lemme know if any success

  9. heads up those who don’t want to wait and KNOW how to flash…flash a Thai version 2.1 (works for telus users) or the version for your providers frequences…this version should be a country that has 2.2 released then go to Motorola website and update via usb cable like they want …it will recognize your phone as THAI or the version you flashed and update it Cheers
