  1. Backflip Root

    Another method can be found with an Instructional Video here: http://theunlockr.com/category/howto/andro...ckflip-how-tos/
  2. DOWNLOADS AND INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO LOCATED HERE I. Bring the Phone Back to Factory Spec 1. Download RSD Lite, and the Firmware File for your specific model and save them to your computer: RSD Lite T-Mobile USA Original Firmware TIM Brazil Original Firmware Generic Chinese Original Firmware 2. Install RSD Lite on your computer. 3. Extract the firmware file somewhere on your computer. 4. Plug your phone in via USB cable and make sure USB Debugging is checked ON. 5. Open RSD Lite and push the "..." button then select the shx / sbf file from inside the firmware .zip file and push Start. 6. It should flash the firmware, and once done, you will be at a stock version of your phone. Hope that helps someone!
  3. DOWNLOADS AND INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO LOCATED HERE I. Before You Begin 1. You must have done our How To Root procedure. II. Flash a Custom Recovery Image 1. Download the custom recovery image .zip file and extract it to the tools folder of your AndroidSDK on your computer. CLIQ XT / Quench Recovery 2. Plug the phone in via USB cable and make sure USB Debugging is checked ON still from the rooting procedure. 2. Open a command prompt on your computer by clicking on the start menu and typing cmd and hitting enter in the search box. 3. In the command prompt type the following with hitting enter at the end of each line: cd\ cd c:\androidsdk\tools adb push recovery.img /sdcard/recovery.img adb shell su flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img 4. Now that the new recovery has been flashed, we are going to make sure the old recovery doesn't get put back. In the command prompt type the following with hitting enter at the end of each line: mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system cd system rm recovery.img III. Load a Custom ROM 1. Head over to our CLIQ XT ROMs section and download the ROM you want to flash. 2. Plug in the phone to the computer and mount the sd card (so we can transfer files to it). 3. Copy the ROM's .zip file from the computer to the root of the sdcard (NOT inside any folders just on the sdcard itself. Do NOT extract the .zip file, leave it zipped). 4. Once it is done transferring, unplug the phone and turn it off. 5. Turn the phone back on by holding down Camera Button and Power and keep holding it until it says to let go. Then click Volume Down for the recovery screen to come up. 6. Select Wipe Data and do a wipe. 7. Then select Apply Zip and select the ROM file you just saved to the sdcard. 8. Once it is done flashing, select reboot now and wait a while for it to reboot. Once done, you are on your custom ROM. 9. To switch to a different ROM, simply redo Section III only with a different ROM file. Hope this helps someone!
  4. DOWNLOADS AND INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO LOCATED HERE I. Install the Motorola Drivers 1. Download the drivers for your computer and unzip them. Then double click the program inside to install the drivers. Motorola Drivers (for 32 bit Computers) OR Motorola Drivers (for 64 bit Computers) 2. On your phone, go to Menu > Settings > Applications > Development > and make sure USB Debugging is checked ON. II. Install the Android SDK 1. Follow our How To Setup ADB procedure just until you can see the device's serial number at the end of step 6. Then come back to this procedure. III. Root the Phone 1. Download the Rooting Files and extract them to the C: drive on your computer (like you did the AndroidSDK). CLIQ XT / Quench Rooting Files 2. Plug in your phone via USB cable and select Charge Only on the phone. 3. On your computer, open a command prompt by clicking on the Start menu then typing in cmd and hitting enter in the search box. 4. In the command prompt, type the following, with hitting enter at the end of each line: cd\ cd c:\androidsdk\tools\ adb push c:\Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk adb push c:\su /sdcard/su adb push c:\rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin adb push c:\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 5. Once you have done that, leave the phone plugged in and go to the Market and download the Free version of ConnectBot and install it. 6. Open the ConnectBot, select local in the dropdown menu, then type local into the field and hit enter. Then type the following in, on the phone, with hitting enter at the end of each line (leave the phone plugged in to the computer while you do this). cd /data/local/tmp ./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin 7. If it worked, you should see the following on the screen. [+] Forked xxxx childs. (xxxx will be an actual 4 digit number) If you do not, then close the ConnectBot and reopen it and try again. 8. If it worked, close the terminal by either typing exit and hitting enter or by hitting menu and clicking close. 9. Once it is closed, reopen ConnectBot. 10. You should now see a # symbol, if so continue. If not then start over from step 4 or go here for a tip from another reader. 11. Now, with the # symbol in ConnectBot on your phone, type the following with hitting enter at the end of the line: /data/local/tmp/install-root.sh You should see nothing pop up after you hit enter, that means it worked, you now should have root access and be able to open your App Drawer on the phone and see Superuser Permissions inside. 12. To load a custom ROM and other fun stuff, head from here to our How To Load a Custom ROM procedure. Thanks Skrilax_CZ! Thanks Sebastian Krahmer! Hope this helps!
