RecBoot – OS X and Windows

I spent some time rewriting RecBoot last night, and added some new features that makes RecBoot more user friendly. This is, by far, the biggest update I have ever written for RecBoot.

For Mac OS X, please visit

This update to RecBoot provides a few things, so here’s a list:

1. Improved, Clean, User Friendly GUI – I tweaked the GUI a bit, played around with the buttons, and also added a Credits box.

2. Cleaner folder – When you download RecBoot, you get a .zip with several .exe’s and .dll’s (would have been much smarter if I compreseed this into SFX but oh well). Now, those files get moved when you open RecBoot. (Except LibUSBDotNet, don’t delete that or RecBoot may not start)

3. No more copying iTunesMobileDevice.dll into the folder

4. Recovery Detection – If you are trying to downgrade, per say, to check if you are in recovery mode, simply open RecBoot. If it says your device is connected in Recovery Mode, then congratulations, you can downgrade! Otherwise, you can’t.

In order to use it, you must have the following already installed:

1. .NET Framework version 4.0

2. iTunes 9.2 or later

3. LibUSB (only needed if you want to use the recovery detection feature)

Encryption Checker

Some of you may remember my project Encryption Checker (previously Encryptor). You may also have remembered the extreme lack of features it had. Today, I decided to come back to the project, seeing as I am much more experienced in C# now.

Encryption Checker is a Windows and Mac utility that can quickly, and easily, generate MD5 and SHA1 checksums. It is also capable of encrypting text strings. Not only that, it can also automatically copy the encrypted string onto your clipboard.

I had written this awhile back, while I saw still learning C#. Now, I have improved greatly. Previously, Encryption Checker for Windows could not generate checksums for files, nor could it auto copy the encrypted string. It’s Mac component could
