iH8Sn0w has updated iREB to R5 after 10 months. iREB is a windows based tool which will put your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch into Pwned DFU Mode, so you can restore your device with custom iOS Firmware. It also helps in avoiding iTunes errors like iTunes Error 1600, 1601,1602, 1603 and 1604 during custom firmware restore. It uses iTunnel to upload 3 pwned files so it can bypass iTunes to accept accept custom firmware file.
iH8Sn0w announced the release of iREB R5 in his Tweet.
- Much smaller file size (390kb).
- Fixed USB 3.0 issues.
- iREB’s speed for the iPhone 2G/iPhone 3G/iPod Touch 1G has increased significantly!
- Fixed rare DFU detection issues.
