One-click fastboot restore and #root for the bionic v2 - #android

One-click Fastboot Restore and ROOT for the BIONIC
Now for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X
Presented to you by dhacker29 and TH3ORYROM

I have zipped up the fastboot binary, boot.img, system.img, ROOT tools and a custom script so that all you have to do is download the zip. Extract it the folder and double click on One-Click Fastboot Restore and ROOT to recover from a bootloop or softbrick on your BIONIC.

The Windows version now includes the ADB exe and DLL file so you don't have to worry about not have ADB setup. I have also included Pete's Motorola Root Tools v1.06 so that you an ROOT your BIONIC as part of the process of restoring.

A new Linux and Mac OS X version has been added. It includes the adb and fastboot binaries for both OS's and will auto determine which platform you are running. It also includes Droid Easy Root v7d so that you can ROOT your BIONIC as part of the process of restoring.

NOTE: I still need testers for Mac OS X. In theory everything is right but it has not been tested. It will not damage your phone but I am not sure the script syntax is 100% right.

Download the zip:
Linux and Mac OS X:
Extract the zip folder on your computer.
Hold the volume down key and hit the power button to enter the AP Fastboot screen on your BIONIC.
Connect your BIONIC to your computer with the USB cable.
Double click the file One-click Fastboot Restore and ROOT in the folder where you extracted the zip.
Follow the prompts on the screen and you'll be restored to factory stock.
Then you will be given the option to root your phone or end the script.

If you already have the boot.img and system.img you can download the standalone packages and drop the images in the folder:
Windows standalone:
Linux and Mac OS X standalone:

A special thanks to BriefMobile for the files and information to make this possible.
