iREB 5 For Windows Released to Help You Install Custom iOS Firmware

Jailbreak hacker iH8sn0w has released iREB 5 for Windows users after 10 months of silence. The simple custom iOS firmware install tool will help you bypass iTunes errors when restoring an iOS device from a custom firmware IPSW.

Release notes:

  • 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.
  • Updated limera1n/steaks4uce payload to not hook “cmd_go” on 4.x images (nothing severe, but useless here).

All of the errors (1600, etc.) that iTunes occasionally gives when installing a cooked firmware. iREB isn’t for the faint of heart, so don’t sweat if you don’t know why you need this tool. Once you’ve created a custom IPSW with a tool like Sn0wBreeze, iREB can be used on Windows to get pass any iTunes hiccups you may come across.
