Default Which version to install? JBBL or Normal?

hi guys,
i don't know which version to install in my atrix HD, i got a Cyanogen M7 at the moment installed on it. I've read that's about the bootloader i have, but i don't know how to check it. Can you help me?

You probably have the JB bootloader as the only other bootloader is ICS and I don't think M7 will run on an ICS bootloader.

Many older ROMs will run on newer bootloaders. If you don't have the correct bootloader for the ROM, the install will fail with an assert error.

ALL AHDs have the JB BL b/c we have not been upgraded to KK yet.

If you want an updated version of CM on your device, you need the ones built for JB bootloader: https://download.cyanogenmod.org/?de...o_msm8960_jbbl
Atrix HD (AT&T) - KitKat 4.4.4, CM11 20140918-NIGHTLY-moto_msm8960_jbbl; ART
