    Have you installed Droid Explorer or the Sideload Wonder Machine or anything? If you keep getting messages that adb is out of date usually that means that another program or something has an adb process running.

    You can either use the Windows task manager to kill it and the adb processes it spawns or uninstall it. That should clear up the errors you are getting when trying to use adb.

    Really? We've been helping you for how long and how many times have I instructed you to follow all of the directions. All you did was the "setup" steps. Pushing the necessary files over to the phone. The entire point of opening 'adb shell' or running a terminal emulator on the phone is so that you can run the needed files from the phone. It's like installing a fancy new game on your PC and then complaining you can't run it because you didn't execute the .exe file for the game.

    You need to go back and look at the instructions again and complete the rest of the steps.

    I don't mind trying to assist you but you have to listen and follow directions.

    Meh, I can't possibly say I'm sad now. The rooting method didn't work on my backflip; no way I could live with that. I wanted in on root. I tried something different (based on the same exploit, mind you, I take no credit) and it worked. So maybe it'll work for you fellow backflippers who still can't root.
    It's not polished (it's quite possibly rougher than the original), but hey, rooted backflip...

    Download ootc.sh (attached, see next post) for ease of use. You can check with any text editor that there's no malicious code there, just the collection of commands from the original root method. If you want to make changes use unix-style end-of-lines as windows-style will make it fail (and if you didn't understand that last bit, you probably shouldn't be editing it...).
    Put it in the same folder as the rest of the files.

    Follow the steps on the original method up to here (I skipped busybox, but you can install it if you want):

    Code:
    Setup:
    - Install adb unless you haven't done so and Motorola drivers unless you haven't done so 
    - Download attached archive
    - Extract to a directory, I used c:\Moto_MSM_Root
    - Make sure you have USB degugging enabled
    - Change connection to PC Mode
     
    Process:
    - Open command prompt
    - cd c:\wherever-your-sdk-tools-folder-is
    - adb devices (to verify the connection)
    - cd c:\Moto_MSM_Root
    - adb push Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk
    - adb push su /sdcard/su
    - adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    - [...]
    - adb shell
    - cd data/local/tmp
    - chmod 0755 rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    And push ootc.sh, too.

    Code:
    adb push /home/amin/Desktop/ootc.sh /data/local/tmp/ootc.sh
    Unplug/safety-remove/whatever your cellphone and open Android Terminal Emulator from your phone, if you don't have it, you can get it for free on the market.

    Type this on the terminal, with the hardware keyboard of the device:

    Code:
    /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    Attachment 218

    The program will run. A few seconds later you should be back to the $ prompt, don't type anything or close the terminal! Wait until the screen prints
    Code:
    [+] Forked #### childs.
    Now press enter to get the prompt back and type "exit". The terminal will close.
    Attachment 219

    Open the terminal again. You may or may not get an alert telling you the terminal died unexpectedly. If you do then just dismiss it and reopen it.
    Attachment 220
    You should now be in a root terminal. Yay!!!
    Attachment 221
    One more step; you just need to:
    Code:
    cd /data/local/tmp
    sh ootc.sh
    Attachment 222
    After the script runs (should be only a split second) and you get back to the prompt, type
    Code:
    exit
    You may want to restart the phone (power cycle off/on) to restore the terminal back to normal.
    You're done! Your backflip is rooted!


    Really hope this can be useful to someone. At the same time I reiterate I did NOT develop the exploit. All credits and thanks go to Skrilax_CZ and C-Skills. So, thank you guys .
    I'm presuming that you are following these steps, since you pushed ootc.sh over. Fine. If you look, you don't even need to use 'adb shell' for this. Now that you have pushed all of the files over, open the Market app and install Terminal Emulator. Then proceed to do the steps I bolded for you.
