    Don't touch any of the Motolur stuff. The only things I would remove are apps such as the ATT navigation/gps apps and the mobile banking app (if you want, I actually keep it).

    Before you remove anything though, be sure to do a backup of all of the user+system apps that way if you do remove something and start getting a bunch of force closes you can try to put it back.

    You can take a look at Removing AT&T Bloatware and Yahoo! Search but it was written before the 2.1 upgrade. The files listed are for manually removing them with an app like Root Explorer. I would suggest doing as you have planned and using Titanium Backup to remove them by name.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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) ankhghd 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 .

    This isn't really needed anymore. Just install and use the z4root app.

    The old method still works however, you need a newer version of su and (I THINK!!) Superuser.apk.. Those can easily be found over at M3 in one of the threads dealing with rooting 2.1 (just search my posts over there hehe)..

    jmgib - does the z4root make a permanent root or is it like VISIONary which goes away after a reboot?? I never got to try that one cause I had done it already with the old method/updated su files...

    @me2fool - if you're still wanting to use the original way of rooting, instead of z4root, it looks like possibly the adb files weren't in your PC's PATH correctly. See THIS site for a good explanation on how to include it in the PATH.

    The old method still works just remember that if your using 2.1 you would need the updated super users apk. I've done it before when I had 1.5 but was having problems now and turned out to be the superuser
