## ---Installing idevicerestore---

## First We Need to Install the dependencies

sudo apt-get install build-essential automake cmake autoconf \
libreadline6 autotools-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev \
libplist1 libplist-utils libplist-dev libplist++-dev \
libzip-dev git-core git-arch git-cvs git-svn git-email \
git-daemon-run gitk gitweb git-doc rsync curl libgnutls-dev libtool 
python-dev libreadline-dev libusb-dev

## Now to get what we need from Git

git clone git://git.marcansoft.com/usbmuxd.git
cd usbmuxd
cmake ~/usbmuxd
make && sudo make install

cd ~

git clone http://github.com/chronicdev/libirecovery.git
cd libirecovery
make linux && sudo make install

cd ~

git clone http://git.sukimashita.com/libimobiledevice.git
cd libimobiledevice
./autogen.sh
make && sudo make install

sudo ldconfig

## Now we can compile idevicerestore

cd ~

git clone http://github.com/posixninja/idevicerestore.git
cd idevicerestore
./autogen.sh
make && sudo make install
sudo ldconfig

## We also need ideviceactivate to activate the device

git clone http://github.com/posixninja/ideviceactivate.git
cd ideviceactivate 
make
