Prevent Accidentally Updating Your iPhone With RecoveryGuard

Have you ever accidentally updated your jailbroken or unlocked iDevice, leaving you without a jailbreak or unlock for weeks or even months? Well, there’s finally a solution to stop accidental updating.

From the creator of MiTime and Pushfix, comes another extremely useful utility! RecoveryGuard is a new tool which prevents accidental upgrade and restore of your iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Check inside for details on how it works…

From the developers: This package blocks iTunes from being able to put your device in Recovery mode. This prevents normal upgrades & restores, for example accidentally clicking Upgrade or Restore in iTunes.

It also makes iTunes think your device is always up to-date.

Note: You can still restore your device by using standard recovery (home button on power on) or DFU mode recovery. Of course you can also uninstall this package to restore normal iTunes operations.

How do you get it? The tweak is available for free in the Cydia store for jailbroken iPhones.

Just launch Cydia, Tap on Manage > Source > Edit > Add > > Add Source.

Once the source is added Search for RecoveryGuard BETA and install it. Simple as that.
