Earlier today Droid 3 custom bootstrap ClockworkMod Recovery emerged and now its Droid Bionics’ turn! Yes you read it right! CVPCS has released Bionic Bootstrap Recovery that is intended for users with root. This version of ClockworkMod recovery isn’t official as the official versions come signed by Koush.
This is what the developer has to say about this bootstrap CWR release for Motorola Droid Bionic:
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!
It is apparent from developer’s statement that this ClockworkMod Recovery build isn’t intended for any other droid variants except the Droid Bionic. And if you try to flash this on any phone except Bionic, then it will wipe your phone’s internal memory.
