Following up on this morningâ€™s confirmation of the Motorola Backflip Android 2.1 update for November 9th, instructions for applying the update manually have surfaced.
- Charge your phone fully. This could take up to 40 minutes according to AT&T.
- Grab the file right here.
- Copy it to the root of your SD card (not inside another folder), and make sure it stays named â€œBlur_Version.3.0.1390.MB300.ATT.en.US.zip.â€ Sometimes Windows likes to add to the file type extension, so double check.
- Tap the menu key > Settings > About Phone > System Updates and look for the update. Your Backflip should find it, install it, and reboot.
