Rooting a Motorola Flipside
Download drivers for the phone:
With the phone unplugged from the USB, install the drivers
grab the ADB SDK files
Extract SDK files somewhere you will remember, and can easily type (for ease of use only)
(you may need to sign up to download)
Copy z4root.1.3.0.apk to your SDK folder
ON YOUR PHONE:
go to Apps Menu->Settings->Applications->Development and check "USB debugging"
Plug in your phone, and have it set to "Charge only"
go to the command prompt, and type
cd C:\"PATH TO SDK" <ENTER>
adb install z4root.1.3.0.apk
Once that is complete, you can now go find Z4 in your programs list. I chose "permanently root". Your phone will
reboot, and then you are rooted.
Unknown sources is still disabled at this point, but you can now install apps that require super user
Tonight, I will try to enable "Unknown Sources" on my flipside.
UPDATE: To get "Unknown Sources" enabled, go to this thread:
