Moto has finally managed to bring the highly-anticipated Android 2.2 Froyo firmware update available to its Motorola Milestone (the European version of the original Droid) users. The latest Froyo update brings the new features and enhancements like a faster just-in-time compiler.
Bear in mind that this is not an over-the-air (OTA) update. Users must be connected to PC via a data cable to upgrade the Froyo firmware on their Milestone handsets. The Froyo upgrading may take a linger time to finish the installation.

Motorola said that RM-locked media you have on your SD card will be lost, during the Froyo upgrading. Quite a disappointment!
