iDevice Software / Boot Bricks

In my study Software bricks, e.g Updating the iOS or Restoring, and Boot,e.g iBoot, iBEC etc; If the iBEC is broken it wont go into Restore Mode, Even via DFU but using an aid like iREC and Steak4source its possible to get it booting into WTF then DFU then Restore Mode. This is a little thing i had found out. This is only for A-4 Devices and maybe under.

If restoring software / updating and your computer shuts down or cord disconnects from the pc whilst updating, this can have dramatic effects on the iBEC to the Software Installation depending on the stage its up to. The variability of having a broken iBEC can be useful if knowing how to use it.

I will continue on this later.

Please discuss

Bricking / Looping Page

Hi Arc. I've just rolled back your latest addition to the bricked article. While it is completely true what you said there, this is not relevant to the article and perhaps also not to this wiki. The bricked article is about real bricking, meaning no way back - throw away the device (or in case of the baseband, just making an iPod touch out of the iPhone). You were writing about some software which causes reboot loops and such, but a firmware restore fixes this, so it's not a bricking. I think it's also not a good idea to even mention these pirate repos. I hope you understand. Feel free to discuss on the bricking talk page in case you disagree with this. --http 07:19, 4 March 2012 (MST)

Thanks for the notice, I will take more care next time with my addition of information, and i also wont mention the pirate repos. Thanks for the heads up. Uhm, is there a possibility of me creating a page on Boot and Respring Looping? Thanks, kinda new.

Anybody can create new articles. We haven't written down the rules for new articles, but as long as they have a lot of technical content, it's no problem at all. If you want to write about what to install and such things, then it's probably more end-user oriented and doesn't belong into this wiki. We already have a lot of such pages here, for example all the directory pages. We will delete those non-relevant directory pages and summarize their content on one page. Only those with useful infos will remain. Also nobody-hacker-groups-pages and such stuff will be removed right away. A lot of discussions were going on about new pages for some useless tools that nobody way using. Geohot decided that they may remain if these tools are being used by at least 1000 people. If you have anything important to write, then go ahead. If you're not so sure, please ask (with more details) on The_iPhone_Wiki_talk:Community_portal. --http 13:58, 4 March 2012 (MST)
