Install Android 2.2 Froyo Update For Motorola Droid & Milestone Without Rooting[How To]

One of my friend was looking for Android 2.2 Froyo for his Motorola Milestone which is also named as Motorola Droid in US & Some countries, I have found this update with procedure that needs no rooting at all.

This update is legal & is actually a package from Verizon’s Build FRG01B  which they have made available in US for OTA update.

We suggest this download for only Droid Users & not for Milestone users even they have similar specs – we need to test it before we confirm.


Update: This trick does not work on Indian Motorola Milestone.
