F.C.E. 365 Firmware Manager X is a firmware manager program that performs multiple encryption, decryption, patch and restore processes for iOS firmwares. The application was created by GeoSn0w.

Details and Requirements

F.C.E. 365 Firmware Manager X comes as a faster access route for the old CLI applications like xpwntool and libimobiledevice project. The application's main purpose is to bring access on CLI applications for firmware DMG Encryption / Decryption, ASR patching and restoring for persons that doesn't understand CLI applications.

F.C.E. 365 Firmware Manager X current runs on Windows only and requires .NET Framework installed on the computer to be able to run. F.C.E. 365 Firmware Manager does not need iTunes to be installed.

Basically, the app uses xpwntool and especially dmg.exe to decrypt the root filesystem DMG from inside the software update file using appropriate Firmware Keys, then using the same keys it encrypts back your modified root filesystem DMG. The same thing applies to ramdisk DMGs inside the software update file. The application uses hfsplus to decrypt the ramdisk and allows you to create the patches for ASR, iBSS, iBEC and so on.

F.C.E. 365 Firmware Manager X makes use of libimobiledevice, especially of idevicerestore CLI to restore an IPSW for the device. The device selection is made by UDID and the restore options are: Erase Restore, Update Restore, Custom Restore, and Restore Latest Available. SHSH Blobs are also fetched automatically by idevicerestore.

F.C.E. 365 Firmware Manager X includes a tool for kicking the device in and out of Recovery Mode.

F.C.E. 365 Firmware Manager X is able to decrypt and patch all IMG3 files (like iBoot, RecoveryMode, LLB, AppleLogo, etc.), DFU Files (iBEC, iBSS), KernelCache file and ASR.

The backup function allows you to create independent backups that does not interfere with iTunes.

F.C.E. 365 Firmware Manager X can also calculate OSVarSize value and the Base64 hash of a file, as well as whether or not the device is in DFU Mode.

F.C.E. 365 Firmware Manager X has a built in HEX viewer.

You can also download parts of the IPSW without being required to download the whole IPSW file.

Versions and Updates

F.C.E. 365 Firmware Manager X is currently on version 32.0, code-named "Birds" and is available for Windows.

What It Isn't

F.C.E. 365 Firmware Manager X does not provide an iCloud Lock bypass, or the ability to downgrade. It will not perform SIM unlocks or bruteforce device passcodes.
