Getting Wifi Tether on your motorola backflip

Ok So I have checked hundreds of tutorials online regarding this, but after much experiment, The following is the best way to root your Motorola Backflip (MB 300) and get Wi-Fi tether on it. Why would we “root”? to use an ipod touch with my android on nearby

Have the following things handy

  1. Motorola device driver http://modmymobile.com/forums/downloads.php?do=file&id=28159
  2. connectbot for shell access to your device http://code.google.com/p/connectbot/
  3. Install adb here http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

Ok so to root it follow this tutorial
