The argument about God wholly restraining the devil’s actions still stands concerning the garden of Eden but I do see your post was addressing a different area than I thought (I thought you were talking about Satan and evil in general rather than the specific incident of the Fall).

The devil did not make Adam and Eve sin but he certainly was responsible to a point. However, Adam and Eve were sinless and unfallen when they chose to sin. We do not know that they sinned solely due to the devil’s prompting or if they might have sinned on their own as the devil himself, as an unfallen and perfected angel who knew the very face of God, chose to sin.
