Fully unlock 3rd Party Apps on Backflip
Method for unlocking AT&T Backflip phone and installing free apps
Android SDK Method
1. Download Android SDK and install platform tools at a minimum
2. Download the USB driver for your phone's vendor and install
3. Enable USB debugging on the phone
4. removed link. Warez!
5. Extract the archive into the platform-tools directory of the sdk
6. Open the command prompt and goto the directory that the platform-tools are installed into
*** NOTE *** Steps 7-9 only needed if phone is not already rooted.
7. install z4root with the command
adb install com.z4mod.z4root2.apk
8. Open the z4root app on the phone and install root. The phone will turn off or restart when it is complete.
9. Ensure the phone is rooted. If so continue otherwise repeat step 7
10. Install sqlite editor with the command
adb install com.speedsoftware.sqleditor.apk
11. Open sqlite editor and press allow to the root priveleges dialog
12. Open the app with an id of com.android.providers.settings and open Settings.db
13. Open table secure
14. Find record install_non_market_apps and edit record changing the value to 1
*** NOTE *** This method is motorola specific, but should be easily adjustable to other vendors
15. Open the app with an id of com.motorola.android.providers.settings and open settings.db
16. Open the settings table
17. Find record force_only_market_apps and edit record changing the value to 0
*** NOTE *** At this point the option to turn non-market apps on and off is available. The following is a 3rd party market.
18. To install the 3rd party market for free apps use the command
adb install .apk

Advising people to use Applanet (BlackMarket) probably isn't allowed here as it is a source of warez.
PS. It has NOTHING to do with allowing 3rd-party/non-market apps.

THANKS SOO MUCH FOR THIS POST. I've been looking for a way to install Palringo on my Motorola Flipside cuz it was missing from AT&T user's Android Market. I tried different options, but this is the only one that allowed me to root my phone and allow non market apps. So finally I have Palringo on my phone again. Kudos to you lodrial.
