Default Droid Bionic Fastboot [FXZ] Files

Here is a link to all the relevant Bionic stock files that I could find. It seems many links are dead so I hosted these myself.

Bionic 886 FXZ / Fastboot

Bionic 893 FXZ / Fastboot

Bionic 902 FXZ / Fastboot

Bionic 904 leaked update - NO LONGER RECOMMENDED as .905 is out

Bionic 905 Leak - flash in stock recovery

RSDLite 5.7 with Moto USB 5.5 (32 & 64 bit) Drivers

Hope this helps!

That is great to know!
I have been finding posts that are 6 to 9 months old that are linking dead links. For all phones, not just the Bionic. These links should not be going anywhere for a while.

Thank you very much for hosting these files! I used the 902 FXZ file to repair a bricked Bionic and then used an OTA upgrade to flash it to 905...

Very helpful!

You are welcome. The Bionic scene is very quiet right now. Not sure if that will change or if it will go the way of the Droid X....

which of these would a person be on if they never had rooted their phone and installed leaks and roms and what-not? I'm assuming 904 and 905 are not official updates since they are labeled "leaked" in this thread, so I'm assuming everybody is on 902 who hasn't rooted? Will I need to be on 902 in order to receive any future OTA updates like when/if ICS ever comes out?

.905 is the latest official version and what you must be on to get ICS pushed OTA when it comes out.

It says to flash it in stock recovery, but that won't work if I'm on .232 will it? Won't I have to use RSD Lite?

you can not flash that 5.9.905 leak with rsdlite. Follow this thread and all the files are there. http://androidforums.com/bionic-all-things-root/480176-how-flash-5-9-902-5-9-905-rsdlite.html

I did follow that thread. in fact the last time I did this I think you helped me out.

This is a very simple process, and I've done it a hundred times before (had to SBF my friends Droid a lot) It just doesn't seem to want to work. keeps giving me that error message.

it's working now. I was apparently using the wrong 905 file. I'm using the modified one now.

I'm resurrecting this thread b/c it has all of the old FXZ files, and I'm adding my link for the latest (ICS) FXZ.

NOTE: If you use the 6.7.246 FXZ you're permanently on ICS - there is no going back to GB from ICS. The security in the CDT.bin file has changed, so once you install it it's stuck on there, you can only move forward.

VRZ_XT875_6.7.246.XT875.Verizon.en.US_CFC_01.xml.z ip

Which file did you try and flash?

Did you get an error or did it hang up.

Ok use the 6.7.246 from my thread I know it is good. Once you go to ics you cannot go back to gb thats why you got the cdt failure.

Is your battery charged? What was it at when you started this process? Do you have another battery or some other way to charge your battery besides your phone.

you can do the manual method instead of using rsdlite because rsdlite can be fussy.

download this file and unzip. moto-fastboot

unzip your6.7.246 fxz file (the one you downloaded from my thread) to the same location as moto-fastboot

I believe your phone is in fastboot already if not press and hold the volume down and power button at the same time on the phone. The fastboot menu will appear. plug your phone into your computer.

navigate in windows to the location you have everything unzipped to. click on the file symbol in the top left corner and when the bar becomes highlighted type cmd and enter if you have win 7. A comand prompt will come up. If not go to start and type cmd and hit enter. when the prompt comes up type cd c:\location of file with moto-fastboot and fxz file unziped

type and hit enter after each step

moto-fastboot flash mbm allow-mbmloader-flashing-mbm.bin
moto-fastboot reboot-bootloader
moto-fastboot flash mbmloader mbmloader.bin
moto-fastboot flash mbm mbm.bin
moto-fastboot reboot-bootloader
moto-fastboot flash cdt.bin cdt.bin
moto-fastboot erase cache
moto-fastboot erase userdata
moto-fastboot flash lbl lbl
moto-fastboot flash ebr ebr
moto-fastboot flash mbr mbr
moto-fastboot flash devtree device_tree.bin
moto-fastboot flash system system.img
moto-fastboot flash boot boot.img
moto-fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
moto-fastboot flash cdrom cdrom
moto-fastboot flash preinstall preinstall.img
moto-fastboot flash webtop grfs.img
moto-fastboot flash radio radio.img
moto-fastboot reboot

you should be on 6.7.246
all your data except on your sd-ext will be erased.

I need to get some money together to pay for MF hosting again, but I'll have both the 98.72.22 OTA and FXZ hosted shortly.

You may wish to put in instructions how someone can use the cdt.bin file from the 246 FXZ to replace the one in 22 thus allowing someone who has not upgraded OTA to be able to downgrade to ICS again thus allowing them to regain root in case they lose it in JB.

I will host it as soon as I get to my PC. I will also switch the CDT.bin from .246 to .22 and also post it.
