Motorola Droid RAZR owners (and developers) received a bit of good news yesterday, thanks to a leaked set of fastboot files which allow your RAZR to be restored to stock in case of a soft brick or other unforeseen issue.

Did you recently do something horrible to your Droid Bionic? Tired of staring at that red Motorola logo? This freshly released recovery file will have your bionic running like new in no time.
Interestingly, Motorola has changed the recovery file format from the tried and true SBF file to the XML based FXZ file.

- install the Moto drivers
- connect your Bionic to the PC
- open RSD Lite
- load the recovery file
