Software upgrades[edit]

Motorola is unwilling to upgrade the Android 2.1 operating system preloaded on the Milestone XT720. Nevertheless, wireless operator Cincinnati Bell as well as third-party developers have provided means to install the Android 2.2 operating system on the XT720. Such upgrades are not certified by Motorola and involve the rooting of the smartphone.

Cincinnati Bell[edit]

Cincinnati Bell certified a 2.2 software upgrade that can be installed by anyone who owns this phone or by the service provider's store representatives for their customers.[6] It has slight differences compared to an earlier update provided by D3xter.[7]

Third-party upgrades[edit]

D3xter, a xda-developers user, released an Android 2.2 upgrade six months prior to Cincinnati Bell's upgrade.[8]
