On Tuesday, Motorola Europe announced on Facebook that a software patch for the Milestone was being made available to all users. While the update wasn't the official Android 2.2 update so many have been hoping for, the fix was designed to deliver some key improvements to the device. Unfortunately, it seems someone at Motorola jumped the gun with the release, so it has been pulled except for users in Greece.
According to Motorola Europe's Facebook page, for Poland, the Netherlands, and other European countries planned to get the update, the update "will also roll out in the future and we will update when these are ready."
AndroidCentral mentions that the update consists of "bugfixes and performance/stability improvements, which we certainly wouldn't shrug our shoulders at. Random power cycling and force closes are said to be targeted, and the alarm clock and music capabilities are said to have been addressed."
Phandroid tries to puts a positive spin on the whole affair even though Motorola pulled the update:
Not Froyo, but it should be a welcome fix if you’ve ever experienced any or all of these issues. Unfortunately, Motorola’s since had to pull the update due to another bug, ironically. In the meantime, just know that you should get notified of the update OTA at some point, or you can go ahead and download the update using Motorola’s PC update tool – found on their website – whenever they’re ready to make the update live again
