    I've had this same problem on the last few nightlies. It charges, USB Debugging kicks on, but it won't let me access for mass storage. I don't know if it's a bug, or if there is a problem with the USB port on my D1. I'm thinking it's a bug for some Droids.

    EDIT: I finally got around to flashing 7.0.2 and it seems the bug with the USB connection is gone.

    I've always seen problems with USB Mass Storage when I have USB Debugging Notify unchecked.

    Often times this issue is kernel related. My USB connection works fine when using the cyanogen kernel. It doesn't when I load Chevy kernels. It was a problem that came up during the nightly builds. Cyanogen fixed it in the kernel. Chevy and others will need to update their kernels.

    It is not exactly the same as a Motorola Droid, but it's very similar. You should be able to find a custom ROM for it somewhere and you should be able to root it the same way as a Motorola Droid.

    I'm not sure what custom ROMs will work with it though. I don't know much about the A854.

    Been running this since it first jumped on the scene.
    Only had some slight issues with sms/mms, but well after 48hrs. of settling in, this ROM is by far my favorite for the OG Droid.

    Anyone have an issue wiht the home screen taking forever to load up? Say im looking at facebook, and i hit the home icon. It takes about 5 seconds to fully load my home screen. I don't recall it doing that before with the RC.

    I do have every app except the ones that i use every day on ym SD card if that matters at all.

    I seem to still be having an issue with missing texts/calls, and texts not being sent out properly. Guess it's back to GPA for me..

    I wish CM7 was a little more stable and reliable for me. I guess I can't expect my Droid to last forever...

    After a bit more research I have found several sites that say the A854 is the cdma Droid but the interesting thing is that Motorola didn't lock the bootloader on this like the others, shouldn't that mean that Modding my device should a lot more simple than other Motorolas?

    Locking bootloaders started with the Motorola Milestone XT720. Rooting and ROMming on Moto phones before that is very easy. That includes both the A855 and A854.

    The Droid, A855, is also CDMA. You'll just have to do some web searching to see what is available as far as ROMs for A854.

    Have they fixed the memory issues in CM7? I'm currently on GPA14 and I almost never have any issues with random app killing and screen redraws (even with Launcherpro not locked to memory).

    It appears that CM7 will work on your Milestone. Make a Nandroid backup before you flash. If it doesn't work, you can flash your back up and be fine.

    I'm loving cm7. It runs way faster then sorcery. I think it is awesome. Anyway, my battery life went way up after installing cm7. And I'm using the same kernel. What the heck? That's cool!

    I saw it a little bit earlier in the nightlies. I'm on build 60 and had a couple of re-draw issues last night briefly. It was odd cause it hasn't happened in a while. Build #61 got added just this morning. I'll have to install it tonight.

    I loaded it last night and messed with it some. No-redraws or launcher hiccups. Seems better.

    Stock Cyanogen kernel at 800MHz.
