Motorola Milestone users have been one jaded crowd lately. Some owners have yet to get their Android 2.1 upgrade OTA, while others are just dying to get their device freed from its Motorola-supported chains to be able to install custom ROMs on it. That development community reached a pretty big milestone recently (I really need to stop with these early morning puns!).

Developer Mauritsch from And-Developers has made something called a kexec module for the device. This module doesn’t actually unlock the bootloader (which is important to this kind of access), but they’ve found a way to boot a custom kernel after the phone’s stock kernel has been loaded: essentially, this means you could be able to flash some ROMs sometime down the road.

The module has yet to be perfected, but this new break gives the entire community a refresh of enthusiasm as they plead to Motorola to unlock their device. If you want more details, be sure to make your way to their site now.
