    I'd love to get some wifi tethering going on, but neither android-wifi-tether nor WiFi Tether seem to work unfortunately.

    Any other wifi tethering apps for cupcake that I'm missing?

    Just do exactly what it says there, except you need to change the path in each step to the correct one for for the Backflip:

    /data/data/com.motorola.providers.settings/databases/settings.db

    Also note that in step 18, the install_non_market_apps value is actually ID 17, not 6.
    I did this seemed to be working fine when i rebooted phone later, its stuck on teh white moto logo screen with blur flashing periodically.

    That's what I tried, and no luck.

    Yeah, I've tested with a few non-market apps and it's not working for me either. I'll go back and double-check that I've got that DB value flipped to "1" correctly... but I wonder if this isn't something that's restricted at a deeper level in the Motoblur/ATT modified OS.

    I did the process and phone works fine, but still can't install an apk from the phone.

    I remember seeing a setting in a file (one of the .prop files, if I remember correctly) which pertained to installation of non-Market Apps. There was also another setting which removed it from the Settings menus entirely. I'll have to poke around and see if I can find it again.

    Anyone know where ro.secure is stored? Is it in the .prop file in the phone root, or somewhere else maybe?
