Do you have a Motorola Flipout lying around? The device is sure a peculiar one, with a full QWERTY keypad and a pivoting point in the lower right corner, around which the screen and keyboard half rotate. The device was launched with Android 2.1 Éclair and never really saw an update coming it’s way. If you still haven’t rooted this flashy looking phone, we can tell you, doing so is as easy as installing an app on your phone. Actually that is what you’ll be doing.
