RecBoot 1.1: No More LibUSB! – Kick Your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad Into And Out Of Recovery Mode [Windows/Mac OS X/Linux]

Ever come across a situation where it was required to get in and out of recovery Mode? Let’s say to jailbreak or run a specific application. Maybe you’ve broken the Home button? Stuck in Recovery Mode? or don’t know how to enter recovery mode? RecBoot is a one click, fast solution utility, which allows you to kick the connected iDevice(s) into and out of recovery mode.

Joshua Bailey has updated RecBoot to v1.1: no longer requires libUSB. Here’s the full description:

I’ve been getting TONS of emails from people saying that RecBoot wasn’t working for them because of libusb. This update makes RecBoot use iTunnel instead of iRecovery, which is based around MobileDevice.h, which means no libusb!

If you wish to enter Recovery Mode, however, you will need to download and place iTunesMobileDevice.dll in the RecBoot folder. I cannot provide this due to legal reasons. I could have made RecBoot point to the DLL from the registry, but I’m not going to, it’s just a quick open source thing I created for the community that isn’t a big deal,  feel free to do whatever you want with it, use the batch files and everything else in the folder. The source code can be downloaded here. RecBoot is yours now, I’m not going to be spending all my time on a program that opens a batch file.

iHacker also mentioned that the next update to RecBoot would mike it interact with MobileDevice.h, which he’s been chatting with iH8sn0w to get this done. We’ll keep you posted on updates.

    locate your itunesmobiledevice.dll file in program files/common files/apple/mobile device support. copy it and paste in the folder where recboot is. …. I have the white screen of death and this didnt help me. but at least its out of recovery mode because theres no error message in itunes.
