Don't hold your breath for a unlocked bootloader. Moto don't play that game. Maybe after google purchase is complete we will see some change.
I talked to @p3droid he wants you to contact him on twitter."BrianMigs said:I'm not worried about an unlockable bootloader, I just want that SBF as soon as possible! Hopefully you guys are right in that it will be coming in the next few days or something. Can somebody delve into the topic of Clockwork Recovery Mod a little more? What does it allow a user to do? What does it further unlock?
So since my phone is in a bootloop, I can't perform the bootstrap process to properly recover my phone?thecaptain0220 said:It allows you to make backups of the system, do full wipes, flash roms, etc. It's one of the essential parts of the modding process.
On devices where the bootloader is locked custom recovery has to be launched through a bootstrap process. Basically some files are replaced that get processed on boot. Then when the system is being loaded it is forced into custom recovery. The problem with this is the phone needs to be bootable to get into custom recovery.
On a device that has an unlocked bootloader you can replace the stock recovery with the custom one. Then you can boot directly to it even if the phone isn't functional.
An sbf is similar to a flashable image file that is written to the phone using motorola rsd and rsd lite software. Not to be Rude but I really wish people would read up on things and understand them before rooting/modding. Good news is you should be fixed by morning or maybe already.BrianMigs said:So since my phone is in a bootloop, I can't perform the bootstrap process to properly recover my phone?
What exactly is a SFB file, and how is it made? It's not made with ClockworkModRecovery correct?
Sorry about your bad luck with your phone dude.BrianMigs said:An unlocked bootloader? So I'm ****ed?
Did you talk to p3 about it? And as of now there is nothing I know of because you can't run ADB"BrianMigs said:I'll keep researching what's going on in the Bionic development community, but still, if anybody can lend me any tips or point me in the right direction, please do so! I'll be happy to try out whatever methods might raise my Bionic from the dead. Maybe I'll send it to P3Droid and he'll be able to do something with it.
