[SOLVED] OpenBoot uninstall issue
« on: April 04, 2011, 07:06:40 PM »
I have a problem.... I can't use the iOS part of my iPod Touch.  I loads and just freezes on the spinning wheel.  I decided to delete bootlace, but since I can't even access the iOS I'm decided to delete everything: iDroid and OpenBoot.

Using the installation instructions here: http://www.idroidproject.org/wiki/Uninstall_iDroid

I can't connect using the oibc  I've tried I think more than 20times now.  But the iPod Touch console just loads a bunch of letters until the OpenBoot logo an the end.  I try hitting the enter on my terminal 1 second after hitting home, 2 seconds after hitting home, mid way with the bunch of letters loading, and even at the end with OpenBoot logo.  All I get is a response of lines from the iPod Touch but nothing connects... OpenBoot never loads on TERMINAL.  Sometimes TERMINAL even ask for my password when I enter sudo ./oibc and while I type the password console on the iTouch is already going midway the letters loading.

I can't even restore the iPod cause I do not have the way to enter DFU mode to restore and jailbreak it again.  So I'm stuck... can't enter iOS to use it normally, and I'm tired of playing around with Android.  I need serious help.  I'll keep trying.

I'm using MAC OS X Snow Leopard just in case.

Thanks for any kind of help you can bring me.

TOPICS MERGED:

New issue now... I can't install OpeniBoot Tools MAC OS X

It says Installation Complete, yet it gives me this error after I use terminal now.

dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/Cellar/libusb-compat/0.1.3/lib/libusb-0.1.4.dylib

I have reinstalled the tool countless times now, yet it still gives me the error now!  I'm about throw the iPod through the window!

I've been having problems uninstalling OpeniBoot

I've installed the "OpeniBoot tools mac os" hundreds of times by now, and when I go in to terminal, it says this:

dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/Cellar/libusb-compat/0.1.3/lib/libusb-0.1.4.dylib
  Referenced from: /Users/DaPuertorican/Desktop/./oibc
  Reason: image not found
Trace/BPT trap


I've navigated in to these folders, and yeah... those files DO NOT exist... yet... there are a other files with NEWER numbers like, inside 'Cellar' the folder "libusb-compact" do not exists... only one named "libusb", inside of it it's "1.0.8" instead of "0.1.3" and so on, and on.

So the oibc file I "sudo" on terminal is referencing files that do not exist, I've downloaded newer oibc files and all seem to reference these outdated files it seems.  I ask... is there another way to uninstall OpenBoot? or any way I can find older OpeniBoot tools or newer oibc files?

I'm desperate right now... can't open iOS yet can't uninstall OpeniBoot, so I have a brick of a device that can't do anything.

Thanks for all the help!

I've merged all your posts (even the separate one) into this post because they are all about the same thing.

Anyways on to your problem.

Uninstalling OpeniBoot will still lead to your iOS nonbooting issue.  OpeniBoot does not change anything in how DFU is performed.

Have you tried a simple normal restore?
1. Power off your device in Android or Hard Reset it.
2. While it is turned off, hold the Home button.
3. While still holding the Home button, connect it via USB.
4. Wait for the Restore/Connect to iTunes image on your device. You can now release the Home button.
5. Open iTunes on your computer and restore.

Thanks... yeah... I was dreading not wanting to do this cause I was going to lose all my saved data.  Which I half did... lost all my music and videos... luckly it had backed up a few days ago, so my app data was saved, and I don't have to start all my games from the beginning, it did scramble my apps all over the place.

Thanks for everything, the normal restore worked... now I just need to jailbreak once again and install "another app" so I can use the hacked apps I have downloaded.

Thats because of the libusb is not correctly installed, try to use this old one http://cdn.idroidproject.org/release/tools/archive/mac/osx-usb-tools.gz
instead of this one from the manual page http://cdn.idroidproject.org/release/tools/OpeniBoot-Tools-Installer-1.0-OSX.pkg

You should be able to install Openiboot :)
