The reboot documents were a series of documents published internally by the Family International during May and June 2010. These documents outlined numerous and, in many cases, dramatic changes to the organizational structure, rules, lifestyle, and beliefs of the cult.
Some of the reboot documents are not yet available to xFamily.org, but are expected to be added here in the near future.
