Found Moto backflip development tools?

They seem to be located in /system/bin.You can play with them through adb after activating a shell (./adb shell).Not sure what they can do or how most of them work but its something i just thought i would share.

Download and install through ADB,then follow the steps provided by the developers web site.I have had nothing but success with this application and the phone does not seem to heat up at all even after streaming hours of video from YouTube.Just thought i should put that out there.

extracting APK files from the backflip(for installation on other android devices)

1)Download this file:
2)Install through ADB ((./)ADB install Development.apk)
3)While still plugged in with ADB running launch application
4)Within the application navigate to "Package Browser"
5)Locate application you wish to extract and click on it
6)Under source will be the path and the name of the APK file
7)In ADB issue command((./)adb pull /system/app/(name).apk /where/it/will/save/to)
8)All done the APK file should be in whatever directory you sent it to

Enable ADB for the Backflip on linux

The first thing to do is download android sdk from and extract it to wherever you want then log in as root and create a new plain text document in
and name it
In the text document type:

and save it to that directory.Then open Terminal and execute
chmod a+r /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
Restart the computer and go to the adb directory and execute
./adb devices
If the device ID shows instead of the question marks you should be ready to execute any adb commands.ENJOY!

(Dont forget to enable USB debugging on you're phone!)
