I rooted my Motorola Milestone 2.1-update1 with the latest beta of Universal Androot, and it seems to have worked fine. I've installed busybox, used titanium backup, and installed a couple root-only apps.
Now I'm thinking about using ROM Manager to see what custom ROMs can be installed. However, I'm worried because I've read the milestone has some sort of lock in the bootloader, and I never actually unlocked the bootloader while rooting it. Am talking sense? Will I run into problems if I simply install ROM Manager and try to install a custom ROM?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm under the impression that rooting and unlocking are separate issues. And so I'm wondering if I don't have to unlock my phone before messing with ROM Manager.
