The XE16 update recently hit Glass and in wake of this major software push, Google has tossed out a life preserver to those who dare to tinker. Most likely as a safety precaution, the company has released a new factory image for Glass just in case your adventurous habits transform the expensive wearable into a $1,500 paperweight.

This is not a software update, but instead a tool that can help you recover Glass’ factory settings if you happen to brick your device. If you’re the type who likes to root and modify your gadgets, think of it as a backup plan that could come in handy if things accidentally go black.
