While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor. Many Android enthusiasts throughout the community were expecting a large redesign of one of the most beautiful handsets ever released, but what we got is something more along the lines of an 'HTC One M8S".

Recover Your Bionic From The Softbrick Stage With One Click!
Having a device like the ones we feature at xda and knowing about this site will give you a certain chance to do things to your device that may end up soft bricking it. The fear and sweaty palms that you get when you are witnessing your investment struggling to wake up is nothing short of a despairing moment. When this happens, you normally go running to your device forum and either ask for help or read up and look for a solution. If you have a Motorola Bionic and are currently in this position, we are happy to let you know that your search is over thanks to XDA member dhacker29. The dev has put together a Windows script which turns a multiple step solution for your soft brick into a speedy, couple of clicks solution. Simply download the script, connect your device via usb, run it, and you should be up and running in no time.
Please leave some feedback behind if this has worked for you.
I have zipped up the windows fastboot binary, boot.img, system.img, and a custom script so that all you have to do is download the zip. Extract it to a folder and double click on One-Click Fastboot Restore to recover from a bootloop or softbrick on your BIONIC.
