Firmware Manager page

Hi there! I noticed that you created a program to help facilitate decrypting firmware files. While all of us encourage contributions, we have had issues with an influx of GUI wrappers (specifically VFDecrypt GUIs) in the past. In addition, as the creator of the program, I think it would be best for an unsolicited person to add your program — otherwise, it looks a little like you're trying to use The iPhone Wiki as a billboard to advertise on. (Listings on the Main Page are also reserved for software with a unique function and a significant number of users.) As such, I made the decision to delete your page from the wiki, as this appeared to conflict with section 3.8 of the Ground rules. If you have any questions about my decision, feel free to respond to this message. --Dialexio (talk) 03:33, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

-M'kay. Can I publish it as a page if I don't list it to main page? It has 3192 users. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by GeoSn0w (talk) 12:23, October 24, 2015‎ (UTC). Please consult this page for more info on how to sign pages, and how to fix this.
That's an oddly specific number. (If it's a download count, do keep in mind one person might download it multiple times... but I digress.) I suppose that it's fine, considering the feature set and amount of users it has. I'll undelete the page so you don't have to recreate it from scratch. --Dialexio (talk) 00:57, 25 October 2015 (UTC)
MM'kay, thanks You can rest asure the app will be updated with more and more features so that will be useful for all users. Have a great day and thanks for recovering the page.


Firmware Manager Source Code

I wish to inform you that as your app uses xpwn applications (specifically xpwntool and hfs), the GNU General Public License requires you to release your source code under the GNU GPL v3. --5urd (talk) 22:12, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

For sure, may I create a Github repo for it? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by GeoSn0w (talk). Please consult this page for more info on how to sign pages, and how to fix this.
A GitHub repo with the source code is fine— it's disclosing the source code, after all. Please address this issue promptly, though— otherwise, I will delete the page once again by the end of the month. (libimobiledevice is also licensed under the similar GNU GPL v2.) --Dialexio (talk) 16:59, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

This is the repo containing the Sources requested. I also updated app's page.--GeoSn0w (talk) 21:29, 5 December 2015 (UTC) GeoSn0w (talk) 21:49, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

Hey, why not just create git submodules for the libraries/tools used? Also, VB.Net is easy to learn and all, but dump it for C# or even C or C++ when you can. Trust me, you won't regret it. --Haifisch (talk) 00:05, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

The terrible part is that I code in Assembly, C#, PY, VB.NET but have no idea on where to get me started on C or Objective-C. I'll buy myself a new iMAC these days and I'll start porting my app into C# for the moment.

BTW, I'm stuck with some Arduino II project for the moment and some exams :)--GeoSn0w (talk) 22:22, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

Multiple edits

Please use the "Show preview" button in order to find mistakes and use less edits on the same page when adding something. I've noticed a lot lately that you tend to make at least 2 edits most of the time for one thing. This clogs up the recent changes page a lot more than it should be. --iAdam1n (talk) 23:00, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

Ok, my bad, sorry and thanks for advice. I'm still new in Wikis. I'll definitely use that tool.--GeoSn0w (talk) 23:02, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

No problem :) --iAdam1n (talk) 23:03, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

Understood. Thanks.
