    Have you tried Gingerbreak already? It works on Froyo as well as some gingerbread builds.

    Also found this as a free alternative to easyroot..supposed to work just as good if notbetter than easyroot Software2Tech.com Android Root Apps: Updated Universal Androot (V1.5.3) was Release and Available for Download

    Edit: Heres a download link to gingerbreak Gingerbreak Released

    Rom manager doesn't usually work for getting into recovery..you would need Droid x bootstrap or Droid 2 bootstrap. I'm not not sure if thoe would work on the milestone though.

    I've been reading around and the specs are the exact same just the only difference I think is the verizon name
