Now ‘USBview’ shows stuck in dfu and cant even get it out of dfu …just stuk in dfu & now cant even get it our of dfu?? any help

anonymous11 July 3, 2011, 4:01 pm

kgp180 : you stuck in dfu because you didn’t fix boot using Ireb while the countdown is running … DON’T LET THE ITUNES COUNTDOWN TO 0 without fix boot

anonymous11 July 3, 2011, 4:04 pm

kgb 180 : just remember ran ireb-r4 fix autoboot as soon as custom firmware is done installing, dont wait for the countdown in itunes(this message will exit in 10 seconds) make sure you ran it.

BoBBies March 21, 2012, 10:13 am

I’m using jailbroken ios5.0.1 and now i wan restore back to “original ios5.0.1” due to battery draining problem. First, I enter recovery mode on my iphone and then restore at itune but it shown up error 3942 then i edit my hosts file to fixed this problem and try to restore again in recovery mode and new error appear which is error 21. I solved this error by enter DFU mode and again.. new error appear (error 1602). I search this error at Google and get the solution which can be solved by running iReb. But after I downloaded the iReb and run it as shown at the top, same error pop out again which is error 1602.I already tried many ways but the result is still the same (failed). Anyone can help me to solve this problem?

Whoever did that program, I love you !!! my iPad2 could not update from 5.0.1 JB to 5.1.1 so I tried to restore as suggested somewhere… and since I was stuck on this crazy link to iTunes with error 21 or 11… After hours and hours of tries, I finally found your iReb note… fixed it in secs !!!

Next is how do I upgrade to 5.1.1… though I am not sure I will try anytime soon 🙂

Stupidly updated OTA to ios 6.1 on jailbroken iphone4. iReb finally stopped the apple cycle and the device has now gone black, but when I connect to itunes I keep getting the message “i Tunes could not contact the iphone update server because you are not connected to the internet. Make sure your internet is connected and try again. I have altered the hosts file; looked at internet and firewall configs and basically prayed to every being there is – PLEASE can you help

iOS 10 error 9 but try iREB When started reboot. loop
Soluttion: When Apple Logo appear press home and power, only press home botom and logo iTunes Restore conect to iTunes and Worked!!!!!

iOS 10 tuvo error 9 pero probe iREB y se reinicio en loop todo el tiempo.
Solución: Cuando inicia y aparece el Logo de Apple presiona en ese instante botón de encendido y el de inicio al mismo tiempo, se reinicia y suelta botón de encendido PERO mantienes el botón de inicio y no soltar hasta que aparezca Logo de iTunes de restaurar y prueba restaurar con iTunes y FUNCIONA!!!!
así revivirás tu iDevice.
