    Hello, Shadowscreation (great user name :)). Welcome to Android Forums.

    That's an interesting question. I moved it to the Motorola Backflip forums for you where it'll be seen by owners of that device who may be able to help you.

    That other forum, where you first posted this, is more oriented around updates in general for various phones, while this area is aimed right at the one you now have the question about.

    Good luck.

    I have the Backflip also, and unfortunately for both of us, AT&T has disabled the ability to download any apps that do not come from the market unless you are rooted. There was some talk of that changing, but I don't know if AT&T ever pursued that change, or not. Maybe someone else here can shed some light on any updates to that situation???

    As damewolf mentioned, it isn't possible to install the third party apps unless you are rooted. Once you are rooted, though, it is a very easy update to apply. Just go to this thread in ModMyMobile.com and it has the files and instructions that you'll need: [MOD] Install non-market apps .

    As far as AT&T changing that, I haven't heard of that and I don't really see that happening, but if you are rooted then it is an easy fix.

    AT&T so far has blocked every android phone it has from installing non market apps. I have a backflip and captivate and both are blocked. Option 1, root the phone and do the mod to allow sideloading apps (install from SD card). OR and big OR that does not require rooting is using your computer and the Android Sideload Mechine (very nice app) Check here for more details. The downside is you have to be plugged into a computer to use this, but you do not need to root.
