Developers and users like will appreciate this as it gives everyone a safety net of sorts – as long as you don’t do anything to break your hardware then anything can be fixed. Find the files for the Atrix 2here and the files for the DROID Bionic here, both courtesy of XDA. [via Android Police, thanks Open1Your1Eyes0!]
