iReb is a tool for the Windows operating system, developed by iH8Sn0w that will put your iPhone, iPod Touch or even iPad into a pwned state. This will allow you to upgrade your iOS device to a custom iOS firmware file created using a tool like Sn0wBreeze. iReb will help bypass iTunes errors such as 1600, 1601, 1602, 1603, 1604 when dealing with custom firmware files. In case you are wondering, iReb works by uploading 3 pwned files using iTunnel so that iTunes can accept a custom iOS firmware file.
iH8Sn0w has recently tweeted that he has updated iReb to version r5, which marks the first time he has update the iReb tool in nearly a year.
In iReb r5 iH8Sn0w has made the overall size of the program only 390kb, USB 3.0 issues are now fixed, and noticeable speed improvements are present. You can take a look at the complete iReb r5 changelog in the quoted area below.
- 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).
