FutureRestore now supports Windows
As you already know, FutureRestore is compatible only with macOS and Linux operating systems.
The developer of this tool (Tihmstar) made it very clear that there will be no support for Windows, ever.
The reason behind this was that Windows doesn’t have a very useful terminal, unlike macOS and Linux.
Thanks to developer firstEncounter, the status quo has changed and this tool now supports Microsoft Windows operating system as well. He tested this version on a Windows VM on a Mac.
Warning – According to the developer, this tool is still in experimental stage. Therefore, I highly suggest you try it only if you are familiar with its functionality.
I and the developer assume no responsibility for any kind of mistakes on your part.
The compatibility remains the same just as the previous versions. You can use it freely on any 64-bit running iOS 11 firmware.
Here’s the complete list of compatible devices (theoretically) thus far –
- iPhone 7/7 plus
- iPhone 6s/6s plus
- iPhone 6/6 plus
- iPhone 5s
- iPad Air, iPad mini 2
- iPad mini 4, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3
- iPad (9.7-inch)
- iPad Pro
- iPad Pro (2nd generation)
- iPod touch (6th generation)
As of now, iPhone 8, 8 plus, and iPhone X are incompatible. The developer is working on an update and will push support for these devices very soon.
32-bit devices will most likely never get an update.
Download FutureRestore for Windows
- ZIP package (version 161)
- A 64-bit iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
- A computer running Windows
- Internet connection
How to run FutureRestore on a Windows computer
Step 1 Download the ZIP archive using the link above.
Step 2 Open it using Windows 10’s inbuilt ZIP extractor. Alternatively, you can use 7Zip utility if you are on any other version of Windows. I am using 7ZIP just because I like it more than anything else.
Step 3 Extract the folder present in this package (futurerestore_v160_windows) to any location on your computer. I will extract it to F drive on my hard disk.
Step 4 Navigate to the location where you extracted this folder. Now, open this folder.
Step 5 Open a Command Prompt window by pressing Windows key + “R” and typing in cmd.
Step 6 Simply drag the futurerestore.exe executable file into the Command Prompt window. The tool will now run successfully.
Step 7 Drag the same executable file once again and enter the following commands to start the restore –
- Type -t [drag your 11.1.2 SHSH Blob here]
- Type –latest-sep –latest-baseband
- Drag iOS 11.1.2 IPSW firmware file.
Step 8 The end result should look something like this –
FutureRestore.exe -t [Blob file location] –latest-sep –latest-baseband [Firmware location]
It is working successfully for several users right now but there’s no confirmation for a proper restore yet. Therefore, I highly recommend to wait it out a bit more before you decide to jump the gun.
