I bought it at Amazon.com, and had it delivered to a friend's house in Massachusetts. I flew to the US, visit my friend, did some tourism, and brought the phone back with me to Brazil, where I put in my GSM chip and it works just fine. Here is the phone info:

  • Model number: Milestone
  • Firmware version: 2.1-update1
  • Firmware configuration version: GAS_EMEA_USASHLS00RTINT_P012

The box says: SM,A853,TR,RETAIL,LICBRZ

So, I should be waiting for an update for what? Europe, like it says in this thread? Or Latin America? Or can I get 2.2 safely from somewhere else? The software looks pretty American to me. What if I follow the instructions from this site? Do I risk bricking my phone?

The Motorola update software will recognize the correct origin, so you could always try to get the official Froyo upgrade.

First of all: Motorola Droid and Motorola Milestone are two different phones, although they look the same. The XT720 (aka Motoroi or Sholes Tablet) is another phone from the Milestone family, but without a keyboard.

The Software is NOT compatible, flashing a SBF file for the wrong phone will result in a bricked device. If you flash a custom ROM via an update.zip or nandroid image, you won't get past the Motorola-Logo on boot, but it's still possible to flash the right ROM.

  • Model number: Milestone Firmware
  • version: 2.1-update1 Firmware
  • configuration version: GAS_EMEA_USASHLS00RTINT_P012

The box says: SM,A853,TR,RETAIL,LICBRZ

This is indicating you got the standard Milestone, the A853, with the South-East Asia firmware (RTINT). You can flash every Milestone (A853) RO, but it's possible, that 3G won't work due to different frequencies.

I think, a Brazil ROM (Vivo?!) was leaked some time ago, but there's no official release yet.

Custom ROMs: Edgard Castro maintains a Brazilian AOSP ROM (http://code.google.com/p/shadowmodbr/) and there is an unofficial version of the CyanogenMod 7 (2.3.3, Gingerbread). More info here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=670
