WHY? Why would you give up the second most open phone on the market (and easily the most open phone on Verizon) for something with a locked bootloader and a big screen?

When do you think that will be? My guess, in about 2 days an early .sdk (is that what you root with?) for 2.3 will be available.

And will it be difficult to stick on a milestone?
Depends on whether Motorola are a bunch of dimwits and ram plugs into the exploits we use. I do'nt know about the Milestone but the Droid has a way to do it regardless of what OS (via RSDLite)

We won't get a good Gingerbread ROM till either the Nexus S releases or the Nexus One receives its OTA. The SDK is just what developers need for apps, it gives us no way to create ROMs off of it. Google said they'd be open sourcing Gingerbread and giving the N1 OTA in a couple weeks. Beyond that i would imagine a month to get a good ROM based off it for Droid...maybe less. But idk if that'll be compatible with Milestone.

thanks for the info. Also, again, I'm a noob with cell rooting. I've never done it.

I always read that everyone who roots installs a mod, like cyanogen. Is there a way to just root your phone to use apps that require root (OC app) but keep the stock 2.1 and original data and just have root access without having to fiddle with mods and backups???

ROMs like Cyanogen are pretty much a tweaked Android OS based on certain versions. (like Linux where you can install Ubuntu, Kubuntu, etc) When you root your phone you don't necessarily have to install them, it just gives you the ability to install them if you want to. You will still have the ability to download and use all apps that require root access.

We have all been noobs at the whole rooting thing at one point in time. If you want to root just find a good guide and follow along.

Basically once you've rooted you can install a new bootloader which will let you install ROMs. It's completely up to you.

I know it gives the option but do I have to? If I root can I still use stock android that comes with the phone? I don't want to install a mod but I want to be able to overclock. Thats all.

Nope, you don't have to, it just gives you the option to. You can continue to use stock android while overclocking and using other apps that require root access.

The stock kernel will allow you to overclock to 600MHz (stock is 550MHz) and that is all. If you want to overclock higher, you'll need to use a hacked bootloader so that you can flash to an overclocking kernel.
