Bionic Bootstrap Recovery


I've decided to take the time to release the Bionic Bootstrap recovery that I have been using for my own developments so that others (especially developers) can get started on their own development efforts for the Bionic.


I want to make a few things clear about this release before simply dumping the files out. I've been reluctant to post this because recoveries are koush's area of expertise and he has more knowledge of these things. That being said, I've gotten enough feedback to decide to release it anyway for those who simply can't wait under the following stipulations:

  • This is not an official CWR release. Official CWR releases are signed off by Koush.
  • This will not be on market. I'll leave that for when Koush makes an official release.
  • This is for BIONIC ONLY.
  • I am not responsible for any loss of data if there are bugs present. I have tested it but that doesn't mean it's bug free!
I cannot stress enough that THIS IS FOR BIONIC ONLY. You should not attempt this for use with other devices such as the Droid 3 except at your own risk. The D3 specifically has differences that will cause your internal storage to wipe if you attempt to use this bootstrap on it.


Without further ado, I present the actual download! Keep in mind that this works in the same way that the Droid2Bootstrap and DroidXBootstrap applications work.

APK: BionicBootstrap.apk
