Finally the wait is over, iH8Sn0w has released iREB for Mac OS X 10.4+. iREB for Windows has been around since ages to fix iTunes errors that you encounter while restoring a custom firmware on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. But Mac users had no iREB support to date.
For those unfamiliar, iREB is a GUI application created by iH8sn0w, the guy who created Sn0wbreeze and iFaith. When you try to restore a custom firmware via iTunes, it will throw you different error and won’t allow you to restore any modified iOS on your device. This is where iREB comes in handy. It puts your device into pwned DFU mode to let you restore custom firmware IPSW files without returning any iTunes error such as “iTunes error 1600”.
iREB for Mac comes with one feature only that is restoring custom firmware on supported devices using limera1n exploit. However, Windows variant of the app also comes with Recovery Loop fix and SHSH grabbing function as well, that are yet to be added in the Mac variant.
iREB supports the following devices: iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS (old & new bootrom), iPhone 4. iPod Touch 1G, iPod Touch 2G (MB & MC), iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4, iPad, Apple TV 2.
