    Download this, and push install it through ADB. If you need some help with ADB, post back and I'll most certainly help you out there.

    Sorry I'm unexperienced with rooting, what exactly is ADB?

    ADB is Android Debug Bridge. If you go into your settings then Applications then Development, make sure USB Debugging is checked. Now the next time you plug your phone into your computer, Windows should install the ADB Driver. After that, download Android Sideload Wonder Machine, and install z4Mod through that. The Android Sideload Wonder Machine uses ADB behind the user friendly UI, so that you won't have to fool around with the command line.

    Alternatively if you're technically inclined, ADB is part of the Android SDK development suite from Google, which you can get from here.

    Can't you also install Z4Root from the market and keep it very simple? I assume it is still available.

    When I plug my phone into my computer I get an error when it tried to install ADB. So, I manually downloaded it and now I am not sure how to find my phone on it. Also I downloaded Android Sideload Wonder Machine and tried to install z4Mod through it. But, when I click go it can not detect my device in my computer. Does anyone know what is going wrong?

    On your phone make sure "USB Debugging" is checked under the Applications>Development Menu. Then unplug your phone, uninstall all the Motorola drivers, and reinstall them. Now plug your phone back in and try again.

    Uninstalling and reinstalling the USB drivers can iron some issues out. Especially if you were using your phone in a normal USB mode, then just changed it to ADB mode.

    Unplug your Backflip, and go to the Windows Control Panel under Programs and Features, then uninstall the Motorola drivers there.
