Motorola Backflip Rooted
Despite earlier reports to the contrary, it now seems to have been confirmed that the same process which enables root access on the Motorola Droid 2 also works on the company’s Backflip — a device which has been on the market since March through AT&T.
Backflip owners who have been waiting months to open up their handsets can thank Sebastian Krahmer over at C skills, whose software also reportedly roots the Sprint EVO 4G. Users should note that as usual, rooting an Android device is probably not advisable for the casual user, and that root access alone does not necessarily mean that custom ROMs can be flashed.
