A simple utility to handle the activation process for iPhones
|Failed to load latest commit information.|
ideviceactivate is a small utility to activate iDevices from the comfort of your GNU/Linux box. Users not comfortable with using a shell should wait for iDeviceActivator, which provides an easier way to do all this. ===Credits=== Almost all of the code, with the major exception of the caching code, was written by p0sixninja. The caching code and the documentation was written by boxingsquirrel. ===Building=== Fetch your dependencies. Because these vary from distro to distro, I won't list specific packages here, that said you need developement packages for: libimobiledevice, libplist, usbmuxd, libgthread2, librt, gnutls, libtasn1, libxml2, libglib2, and libcurl. Then: git clone git://github.com/boxingsquirrel/ideviceactivate.git cd ideviceactivate make sudo make install ===Running=== For straight-up activation with nothing fancy: ideviceactivate For the same, but deactivating: ideviceactivate -x Now, to run with the caching stuff: Create the cache and activate the device: ideviceactivate -c <cache directory> Use an already created cache to activate the device: ideviceactivate -r <cache directory> Notes: The -u flag can be used to target a device by its UUID. If you have an activation record lying around, you can specify it along with the -f flag. The IMEI, IMSI, ICCID, and SerialNumber can be specified on the command line with the -e, -s, -i, and -n flags respectively.
