RecBoot is a simple program that initiates the recovery mode on an iPhone. Recovery mode is found deep within iOS. It provides access to the core of the operating system and can be used to solve a number of problems associated with the software. It's not uncommon for users to experience issues after a firmware update. Recovery mode makes it possible to restore the phone to a usable state.

However, accessing the recovery mode is no easy task. It typically requires a unique combination of button presses to activate. RecBoot bypasses this process and initiates the mode with a single press of a button. The streamlined software contains two main buttons. One is used to enter recovery mode while the other is used to exit.

To use the program, users need to connect their iPhone to the computer via a USB cable. Once connected, simply press the "Enter Recovery Mode" button. iOS will then boot in recovery mode, making it possible to resolve any issues. When the problem is fixed, a press of the "Exit Recovery Mode" button will make the phone start up as normal.

The piece of software is very simple to use and designed to accomplish this single task. It runs on 32-bit windows operating systems only. To properly start the recovery mode, the software also requires iTunes 9.2 or older to be installed on the computer. It also needs a 4.0 NET framework.

Pros:

  • Initiates Recovery mode with a single button
  • Makes it possible to get into the core of the operating system
  • Simple user interface

Cons

  • Won't run on 64-bit systems
  • Designed for users that understand the operating system
  • Doesn't fix or change the operating system
