Finally, the wait is over because iH8sn0w has released iREB for Mac OS X 10.4+. As some of you already know, iREB for Windows has been released quite a while in order to fix iTunes errors that users encountered when restoring a custom firmware on the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. So far, Mac users felt a little bit left aside because they do not have iREB support up to date.
For those of you who do not know, iREB is a special program created by the iH8sn0w, the creator of Sn0breeze and iFaith. When a device is restored to a custom firmware using iTunes, it will experience various errors. In the same time, the device will not allow users to restore any modified iOS on the Apple device. Here is where iREB is useful. The software puts the device into Pwned DFU mode in order to allow the custom firmware to be restored.
In what concerns the iREB for Mac, the version comes with a single feature: the one that allows custom firmware restoring on supported devices using the limera1n exploit. Compared to the version for Windows, which comes also with the Recovery Loop fix and SHSH functions as well, the Mac version will have to wait a little bit until these two features will be available. The iREB Mac version supports the following devices:
- iPhone 2G
- iPhone 3G
- iPhone 3GS (old and new bootrom)
- iPhone 4
- iPod Touch 1G
- iPod Touch 2G (MB and MC)
- iPod Touch 3g
- iPod Touch 4
- Apple TV 2
In the same time, the well-awaited recovery tool can set the following iTunes errors: 1600, 1601, 1602, 1603, 1604 and error 1015. All these errors might appear when users maintain the old base-band or try to fix a custom firmware. In order words, if you try to update or fix your device to a custom firmware using Apple’s iTunes by pressing the shift key, only with the help of iREB you can get pass all these problems.
