    Default [WIN] Quick Change Boot & Recovery Image

    Allot of people already now how to do it buth i will give a quick guide how exactly do it. It's not that hard and it works for Windows & MacOSX users ! Just follow the steps below and you have recovery image in no time.


    1) Take your ipsw file and rename it to .zip extension


    2) Navigate to Firmware/all_flash/all_flash.m68ap.production/


    3) There you will find applelogo.img2 & recoverymode.img2, that is the Boot and recovery logo.


    4) Now take your img2 files and just copy it (with good names) to the folder in the .zip file.


    5) rename now the .zip extension back to .ipsw and your done !


    6) Now flash the firmware and your new images are there.


    PS: This is only when you whanna keep your cooked firmware buth whant to change the images, otherwise you have to cook it all over again.

    Isn't it risky to use unzipped ipsw file?

    That can only with Pwnage Tool at this moment. You just have to change the two img2 files inside the pwnage folder on your PC (dont now where that is on a mac). Then go to pwnage tool and just iPwner your iphone again and there are your new images without restoring.

    Thank for a good info. I just wanna add something

    You don't have to rename the file extention since you can use winRar Instead of winzip to open the files. Have fun.
