hey there i'm Daniel, i am an autistic nerd who has a fascination with iOS devices.

I contribute what i can to this wiki, as it's a carefully-crafted masterpiece, just like some apple products. ;P

i can also be found on Twitter, Reddit, and Github, among other places.

NOTE: i am taking a break from doing major edits, particularly with the RecoveryOSUpdates/SFRs. my brain needs time off from these, but later once i start using a new script i'll be back on task. but while i take the break, i'll still collect the url's so they don't go missing if someone else doesn't do the RecoveryOS/SFR bundles

Other Apple Devices

Broken Apple Devices (that i still have)

Device Description Cause of death
iPhone 5s
N51AP, 16GB, Space Gray; iOS 12.4
This iPhone was my daily device from 31 Jan, 2015 until 16 May, 2019.
The logic board broke on 9 June, 2020
The main cause of death was the solder becoming brittle and small parts breaking off the logic board including the power button connector, wtf?. TouchID also doesn't work as the ribbon cable wore out.
iPhone 4
N92AP, 8GB, Black; iOS 7.1.2
this was my very first iPhone and was my daily iPhone from around 20 June, 2013 until 31 Jan, 2015. this device isn't really "dead", it has no charging dock, the screen is cracked but still works, and the battery is stone-dead, but the logic board is good so this device can be revived if i desire.

My System and commonly used programs

I list this stuff here in case anyone needs good programs or has any curiosity on what i use for computing.

My daily computer is a Toshiba (Dynabook) Satellite L755-S5355

Date of Purchase: 2 December 2011 (yeah, this thing's old.)

I have Upgraded my computer over the 12 years that i have been using this machine:

Original Upgraded
CPU Intel Pentium B950 Intel Core i7-2760QM
RAM 4GB (2x2GB) Samsung DDR3 PC3-10600S 8GB (2x4GB) Samsung DDR3 PC3L-12800S
STORAGE 500GB Toshiba 5400RPM HDD 500GB Samsung 860 EVO SSD
OPTICAL Toshiba DVD SuperMulti Drive Panasonic UJ272 Bluray Drive

The most useful programs are listed here:

  • Windows 7 SP1 as my main OS, With pirated extended security updates!
  • Ubuntu 22.04 LTS as my secondary OS, so i can run checkra1n, ipwndfu and other linux programs using it.
  • Mozilla Firefox✝ as my web browser (extreme customizability!)
  • cURL (Windows) (most commonly used to remotely fetch sizes on ota files)
  • Notepad++* (i wouldn't be caught dead without this program!)
  • 7zip (Extracts almost everything i can throw at it, including IPSW's)
  • img4lib (extracts kernels and other files.)
  • MSYS2✝ (does posix shit on windows and a lot else.)

Notes

* While Notepad++ doesn't officially support Windows 7 and 8 anymore, the program still works flawlessly on these platforms.

✝ Mozilla Firefox is no longer getting feature updates on Windows 7, 8 and 8.1,
these platforms only get security updates through the ESR channel until the end of life for Firefox ESR 115.x Series on 3 September 2024 (2024-09-03).[1]

✝ MSYS2 stopped supporting Windows 7 and 8 in December 2022 so no more updates will be available on these platforms.[2]
Cygwin has also ended support for Windows 7 and 8 starting with version 3.5.0.[3]

The last installer of MSYS2 to support Windows 7 and 8 is 2022-10-28

Windows 8.1 and up for MSYS2 and Cygwin are fully supported.

Windows 7 is becoming less and less sustainable to continue using as a daily due to the fading software support, and my laptop is also living on borrowed time as when it posts on bootup often fails to start the gpu resulting in a black screen.
