    This won't really help but I kept messing up on pushing the rage file cause I kept typing rageagainstthemachine-arm5.bin. Took me a couple minutes to realize it, too.

    Haha. Made me think of weird a collab between Rage Against The Machine and Cage the Elephant.

    To those having problems pushing/finding the files, you must remember to type the commands slowly and accurately. Any minor typing errors will cause this to fail.
    That's the downside of having to type this on a terminal, I thought about renaming the files and making a new download pack (since I'm really not a fan of long filenames), but I scraped the idea since I thought it might make it lose connection to the original thread.

    If you think it'll help, you can rename the files at will and give them shorter filenames.

    SO I've got root on a ME600 from Singapore...How can I install the market now? I tried Market Enabler act...Set to T-Mobile US...Settings accepted...Now what?

    Downloaded the Vending.apk but during installation it says Market cannot be installed on this phone...Am I missing something?

    I feel like I'm dreaming. I check this forum every morning for either A. root, or B. official 2.1 release.

    I just can't believe it actually happened! Urgh, now I gotta wait until tonight.

    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) 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 .
    This method worked for me when the M3 didn't.

    If you fail to root then that's that. You won't need to restore your phone as no changes were made.
    You can just delete the temporary files later.

    I'm curious, why was this method never developed when looking at the Backflip, but found so quickly with the Droid 2?
