I don't have a BackFlip, but do write Android apps and use ADB regularly. So figure'd I throw this out there for Mac/Linux people:

On MacOS, ADB doesn't need a USB driver for your phone. Just download the SDK, and you can execute ADB from a terminal.

On Linux, all you need to do are to follow the instructions here:
Developing on a Device | Android Developers

Specifically the bit about creating and chmod'ing an /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules file.

Hope AT&T fixes this issue soon, it's ridiculously stupid to attempt to disallow non-market apps given that ADB works.
