The New Motorola Flipout Forum Starts Its Life with a Rooting Guide
Support for the Motorola Flipout started as of yesterday on XDA and we are already learning a thing or two about one of Motorola’s devices for AT&T. XDA member ghostwheel points us to a simple way of rooting the device. The Universal Androot seems to do the trick just fine. Needless to say, since there isn’t a lot of development floating around for this device, don’t expect to be able to flash roms right away, but at least you can give Superuser permissions to your favorite apps and install things that otherwise you would have not been able to.
The forum is young and this is a rather promising device, so if you have a Flipout or are thinking about getting one, make sure that you pop in there and support the community.
