    Unhappy My backflip is bricked

    Hi all. I have a backflip that has turned into an expensive paperweight. i uninstalled google talk and did a factory reset, but i had never backed up my phone or anything along those lines. i was wondering if anyone on here could tell me how to flash the stock rom back on my backflip that includes all of the applications and settings that it had when it came out of the box. i also own a samsung captivate and there is a program called odin that i used to flash roms to it, but i have no idea how to do so on my backflip.

    much appreciated

    I just signed up to post how I fixed this issue since I did the same thing. I deleted / uninstalled Google Talk on my Backflip and I got error messages and couldn't download anything from the market. It would get stuck on "starting download" but wouldn't actually do it. Luckily, the fix is relatively simple. here's the steps:

    Download and install Droid Explorer on your PC Droid Explorer - Download: Droid Explorer Beta

    Next download the 2.1 update package using the "preferred method" and save it Backflip Software Update Page - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA

    Now unzip it and open system -> app then copy and paste the following files to your desktop


    Make sure debugging is turned ON in your phone Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB Debugging -> check on

    Now open up Droid Explorer, then plug in your phone via the USB and hit the refresh button in DE. It will show some other phone that isn't the Backflip, but it's fine just open it up. In DE, go to Tools -> Manage Packages -> Install Package go to your desktop, select one of the four and install it. Repeat for the other 3 files. restart your phone and you're done.

    That fixed all my problems.
