Posted in Firmware releases on 16.06.2010 by GOT-Scripts

We are proud to present to you the 2nd release of the new firmware for UK and Central Europe

These are not any modified HK firmware files, but the specific Motorola firmware releases that will be released soon.
G.O.T. only injected the vulnerable recovery from nadlabak directly in the SBF files.
All other modifications require our G.O.T Open Recovery.

OpenRecovery G.O.T

G.O.T.’s OpenRecovery

We strongly recommend that you take a nandroid backup first. If you do not know how to do that, you should probably NOT INSTALL this release in the first place and wait for the official OTA release.

For a simple installation guideline and more information of the supplied G.O.T. hacks in the OpenRecovery see our latest post in the How-To section.

DISCLAIMER: Use at your own risk. G.O.T will and cannot take any responsibility for any issues or damages to your device. If you are unsure, uncertain or not able to recover from any issues that may arise during the installation, do not use this release.

Next projects – UK and Central Europe?

From what we have seen from our intial release to the German users, our work seems to be accepted and appreciated by the community.

As such, we are now considering whether we will enable G.O.T. for the other country-specific releases.

– Milesteone Central Europe

Other countries may follow.

Install via SBF

Posted in How-To on 15.06.2010 by gotgw
Requirements:
Our current release
OpenRecovery G.O.T. Edition
At first: You do this all on your own risk!
Make sure that you have a working nandroid backup on your SD card.

Procedure:

  1. Charge your device!  It’s never wrong to have a full battery, but we recommend at least 50% before you initiate the upgrade.
  2. Shut down the device and start into bootloader mode (d-pad up + power)
  3. Connect the Milestone and install the USB Drivers if not already installed
  4. Start RSD Lite. DO NOT MODIFY ANY SETTINGS!
  5. Flash our SBF-file.
  6. The phone will reboot automatically after RSD has finished.
  7. The initial reboot may take very long, be patient and don’t touch the phone!See below if you are stuck at the M or in a reboot loop
  8. Root your phone like you did in the older releases by applying the update.zip either via the root update.zip or the faboulous OpenRecovery from Skrilax_CZ.
  9. We recommend our OpenRecovery G.O.T edition (see below) to modify and root your device.

Now you are good to go with your new firmware version… 😉

RANDOM  error: Although these are service files (means your data should remain intact), we have had some non-reproducable instances with these files where a battery take-out/place back in is required to boot the device (up to 2 times) also with the original Motorola sbf files.
If you are stuck at the Motorola logo or the Android loading screen after a considerable amount of time (5 minutes)
Take out the battery, then reinstall the battery (cold reboot)
– Try whether the device now boots. If not, repeat once more.
– If the device still does not boot, boot straight into recovery and perform a data wipe.
– You can then restore your previously taken /data image from nandroid after the initial boot.

OpenRecovery G.O.T V1.0

If you want to unleash your Milestone, you should apply our OpenRecovery G.O.T. Mod.

This will enable the following:

  • Overclocking in mot_boot_mode.
  • Memhack
  • Change of the build.prop to allow market access.
  • Simple screen with G.O.T. wallpaper and black notification bar adapted to the new framework which was introduced with SHOLS_U2_02.36.

Install the included update.zip in the root directory of your SD card. The included OpenRecovery folder must be copied to your SD card also (note: you may have to delete a previously installed version of OpenRecovery first by deleting the folder on your SD card)

DISCLAIMER: Use at your own risk. G.O.T will and cannot take any responsibility for any issues or damages to your device. If you are unsure, uncertain or not able to recover from any issues that may arise during the installation, do not use this release.

New Features

Posted in Release Notes on 15.06.2010 by GOT-Scripts

During out testing, we have discovered these features:

– New Application: Xing
– Camera settings modified slightly
– New security setting, “security lock timeout”

This does not mean that these are the only new features, but these were the ones visible to the naked eye.

Bugfixes in this release

Posted in Release Notes on 15.06.2010 by GOT-Scripts

The following known bugs have been fixed within this release. We have done some testing and can confirm these fixes:

  1. Media Player resumes and plays music without being user-initiated is fixed
  2. Spontaneous reboots did not occur during our testing.
  3. Wake-up Alarm and other scheduled events now work properly. Confirmed with the alarm tester the infamous nadlabak has created (many thanks for that)
  4. Issues that although WiFi is active the MS cannot connect to authorised APs fixed.
  5. Camera displays 7pixel-wide streak on the right hand side when in Widescreen Mode – not fixed
  6. Settings widget displays GPS enabled although Navigation and GPS fix no longer required – works as designed to alarm user that GPS functionality remains active in the background
  7. Notification LED only lights up when in standby mode (screen disabled) – works as designed

We have tested and verified these within the G.O.T team and during our tests these bugs have no longer occurred. Since every MS is configured differently that does not mean that these may not occur in your particular configuration.
