Before we start on this, we’ll just remind you that this stuff is something that should not be taken lightly and we recommend that you do your best to fully understand every step of it before proceeding. This file should really only be used as a last resort if for some reason you think you have bricked your DROID Bionic. It flashes in a similar fashion using RSD Lite to what you may remember from all of those SBF files in our early OG and DROIDX days. It could be a life saver and it could also kill your phone.
Again, proceed with caution. I would definitely tuck these files away though if you plan on doing anything out of the ordinary with your new device.
