    Maybe A Helpful Tip For Rooting?

    Well, I am in no way any expert at this, but, the Backflip has the same bootloader as the Droid X, right? So how can we not root it yet? The Droid X has already been rooted if you look here:

    Droid X root achieved | Android Central

    Heck, if you look here, it can be rooted in one click:

    Droid X Gets One-Click Rooting

    Anyways, maybe were all past this and I just don't know it, but just thought I'd try to help. I want my Backflip rooted just like everyone else.

    The third quarter isn't over yet. Who knows? They might give it to us on time.

    True that. I'm crossing my fingers. And I heard they are even planning for 2.2? If so, do you think they will do some bs and take out the tethering options so that you have to pay?

    Yeah but it requires root. But anyways I was hoping to use wifi tethering and I heard the one built into Froyo isn't very good.

    Tethering apps do not require root (for USB tethering anyway).

    Check out the post I made in the general Backflip forum. I would like to wifi tether to my iPod touch, so something like PDAnet won't work.
