    I was wondering, if the guys over at XDA are searching databases for a particular SBF without avail, shouldn't we be looking for a particular FXZ, cuz isn't that what we flash through RSD to unbrick?

    My understanding is that SBF is no longer used, and that FXZ replaces SBF. A stock FXZ with an unlocked bootloader is what we should be sifting for, am I correct in assuming this?

    Its possible but not too sure because they always used sbf but their also supposed to start unlocking the bootloaders at the end of 2011 and its prob more likely now that motorola is in google hands

    FXZ is a format that is replacing the SBF. SBF will go away. Dont ever expect to see the SBF format used for the Bionic.

    So when looking for a stock image with an unlocked bootloader, its safe to say we're looking for the image in FXZ format. Its confusing when the Web is filled with search results which correlate "unlocking Bionic bootloader" with "SBF".

    Because at first we were looking for an sfb after the bionic came out. Then fxz was later introduced.
