All you have to do is download the zip file and replace two (2) files and you will have the "Unknown Sources" option in Settings->Applications.

Instructions:

Note: This is only for the official Motorola 2.1 Update. If you're using j_r0dd's Preclair ROM, you already have this.

Allow Non-Market Apps for Backflip users with the 2.1 Update: Enable Non-Market Apps 2.1

Just replace the files on your phone with the ones in the zip file and set the permissions of the files as stated below.

1. Location: data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/
- Permissions: settings.db: rw-rw----

2. Location: data/data/com.motorola.android.providers.settings/databases/
- Permissions: settings.db: rw-rw----
Ok did that. Still can't sideload z4root. I used to be able to sideload... I bet AT&T or Motorola updated the Backflip devices to disallow it and rooting. I've been at this for 6 hours now. Nothing I've tried is working.

I checked. Unless I'm not in the right area, there is no option to enable non-market apps. I checked in settings/applications/debugging. it's not there.
