Evening alfonso...

Hope all is well...

Which ROM were you on before Flashing Miui? Which Version of Miui did you flash?

Let's start there first...:smile:

Ok...
I am not to familar with Milestone...However, You may have to SBF... maybe... but lets try this first...

Do you know how to SBF?...Say Yes...If not, Check out the options for SBFing and chose what you feel most comfortable with...If you need to..

Now,

Do a Nandroid first (Backup) of you current ROM that your on ...
Wipe Data/Cache/Scroll to Advance then to Wipe Dalvik...Chose Yes, same with Batt Stats...
Flash the Miui ROM of your choice...
When completed...Reboot...
Now, Try to Activate again...if you can not Activate again and your having to many issues you will need to SBF to Clean All the Data in your system so not to have conflicts with any New ROM's you Flash

can someone please help me

what did you use to sbf?

sounds like you used rsdlite to flash the sbf... rsd is a good method... but it does overwrite the radio... causing the problem...
if you use the linux method... to flash the 604 milestone x sbf... you should be good to flash miui

i didnt use rsd lite i used i think it was zerg root by doomlord everyone said to use that method if your going from .621 to .604 and i cant do the linux was cause i dont have any discs or usb drive

i'm referring to flashing the sbf...
sounds like that's what caused the signal issue...
the zergrush method is a great way to root the phone...

what did you use to flash the phone from 621 to 604?

sorry i just confused the hell out of myself i did use rsd lite to go from .621 to .604 im guessing the linux version is the only way to do it where my phone and text would work?

It's all good... Ya... You have to use the Linux method...
Rsd lite will rewrite the radio causing this problem...
Linux method will not touch the radio... So that's why you have to use the Linux method to flash the milestone sbf

no... to flash the rom... you'll have to use bootstrap... to get into clockwork recovery...

rsd lite is only for flashing sbf files only

Sounds like they could be the problem... Use the software mentioned above to "burn" it to the flash drive
