Moto Milestone firmware w/ multitouchy goodness stuffed in Droid. ROM coming “within days”.

Android’s openness and easily tweakable nature is quickly making it a hackers dream. If you don’t like something, fix it. In regards to the Droid, the biggest shortcoming many have voiced is the lack of multitouch support within the browser specifically as the Droid does actually have multitouch. (Just look at Dolphin browser on the Droid — it’s built in, Google just didn’t take advantage of it.)

Watching the video (below) is enough to make my mouth water and get all giddy inside. But what good or use is getting giddy if I’d never be able to poke, prod, pinch, and zoom myself? Thankfully we’ll all be able to very soon — as in the next couple of days.

Thank you’s can be sent to AllDroid’s Eugene and Barakinflorida whom put their Droids’ lives on the line in order to get a working Moto Milestone build up and running on it’s American counterpart. According to the duo, the builds works well. As well as a twin’s clothing should fit anyway. And for those worried about losing Google Navigation can remain calm as the pair above retained the multitouchy goodness of the Milestone’s firmware and tacked Google Nav on top. Super.

Keep those eyes glued to Gadgetsteria for as soon as we hear about the Milestone-Droid ROM dropping, we’ll be sure to pass it along to you dear reader.
