    [ROOT] All versions of Backflip

    Instructions (it's the Droid 2 root method):

    Setup:
    - Install adb unless you haven't done so (here) and Motorola drivers unless you haven't done so (here)
    - 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 (Charge Only)

    Process:
    - Open command prompt
    - cd c:wherever-your-sdk-tools-folder-is
    - adb devices (to verify the connection)
    - adb push c:\Moto_MSM_Root\Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk
    - adb push c:\Moto_MSM_Root\su /sdcard/su
    - adb push c:\Moto_MSM_Root\rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    - adb push c:\Moto_MSM_Root\install-root.sh /data/local/tmp/install-root.sh
    - adb shell
    - cd /data/local/tmp
    - chmod 0755 rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    - chmod 0755 install-root.sh
    -> keep your phone connected to PC

    Download "Better Terminal Emulator" or "Terminal Emulator" or "ConnectBot" (I myself prefer ConnectBot - to open shell console there, just pick in the combobox "local", type any name into the editbox, and press enter) from the Market.

    -> open the terminal emulator on the phone and type:
    - cd /data/local/tmp
    - ./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin

    Wait until you see this message - don't press anything:
    Code:
    [+] Forked xxxx childs.
    Then press enter and type "exit" to close the terminal (or close it via the menu)

    -> open the Terminal Emulator or ConnectBot on the phone (if you get the message that terminal died, dismiss it and run it again)

    If you end up with "#" prompt, do the following. Otherwise reboot the phone and try opening the "Terminal Emulator" again. If even that doesn't give "#" prompt, go back to step "./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin". There are mixed results atm., but some succeeded. See this post for possible way:

    Type into the console:
    - /data/local/tmp/install-root.sh
    (if the script prints nothing, then it was successful)
    - exit
    - exit

    Now you have successfully rooted the phone.

    The install-root.sh contains the following:
    Code:
    mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system
    
    cat /sdcard/su > /system/xbin/su
    chown root.root /system/xbin/su
    chmod 6755 /system/xbin/su
    cat /sdcard/Superuser.apk > /system/app/Superuser.apk
    chown root.root /system/app/Superuser.apk
    chmod 644 /system/app/Superuser.apk
    
    mount -o ro,remount /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system

    Try typing su? Maybe it didnt elevate your user level. I have to do that whenever I login to shell after getting root, or I stay at the $ prompt

    You still have "$", you'll have to try again from "./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin" step.

    I dunno if you saw Skrilax, but I posted an image of my cmd prompt of what worked when I rooted in the other topic.

    It could be of some help, maybe.

    Well I looked on it again and there ain't the reboot step, so better no to avoid confusion.

    I didn't reboot my phone after first run of the exploit. I THINK the trick that worked for me was to kill the adb server (adb kill-server) as quickly as possible after the exploit ran, then typing adb devices, adb shell.

    Oh, something I forgot. Don't know if it makes a difference but, I ran the command prompt (Win7 64) as administrator just in case.
