Today I decided to release a new version of Firmware Manager that fixes some compatibility issue after some Microsoft Updates that made some users not to be able to open the app anymore. The application now works well.
In this new version (v17.0), I also added a new feature that gives you information about all jailbreak able firmware versions and the tool you should use. Now this features is available on the Toolbox Page 2.
This new version also contains some memory handling improvements as well as some resource saving features and bug fixes.
In today's video I also released the Setup.App Patch for iPhone 5,1 and 5,2 for iOS 9.3.4 that can be used for CFW Creation for iCloud Bypass.
You can follow this tutorial to see how to use such patch to create CFWs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFcsC9kGKQQ
The application comes as a faster access route for the old CLI applications like xpwntool and libimobiledevice project. The application's main purpose is to bring access on CLI applications for firmware DMG Encryption / Decryption, ASR patching and restoring for persons that doesn't understand CLI applications.
This application is currently running on Windows only and requires .NET Framework installed on your computer to be able to run. Unlike other Firmware restore / Modify tools, F.C.E. 365 Firmware Manager does not need iTunes to be installed.
Basically, the app uses xpwntool and especially dmg.exe to Decrypt the ROOT FS DMG file inside the .IPSW Firmware using appropriate Firmware Keys, then using the same keys it encrypts back your modified ROOT File System DMG. The same thing applies to ramdisk DMGs inside the IPSW Firmware. The application uses hfsplus to decrypt the ramdisk and allows you to create the patches for ASR, iBSS, iBEC and so on.
F.C.E. 365 Firmware Manager makes use of libimobiledevice, especially of idevicerestore CLI to restore an iPSW for your iDevice. The device selection is made by UDID and the restore options are: Erase Restore, Update Restore, Custom Restore, and Restore Latest Available. Due to libimobiledevice integration, this app does not require iTunes to restore the iPSW. SHSH Blobs are also fetched automatically by idevicerestore.
This app includes a tool for getting the phone out of Recovery Mode with one click. You can also put the iDevice into Recovery Mode with one single button! It also makes use of ideviceinfo to query all information about your device whenever you need it.
