How can I restore or Flash the iPod/iPhone/iPad without using iTunes?
if you use other methods than the ones recommended by Apple you can loose the warranty of Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad
do you know them??
jailbreak iphone, ipad (not recommended but popular apprently)
There are a few methods out there, but I wouldn't recommend any of them. The risk would be too high, in my opinion.
My device is out of warranty.No problem with risk .
Well, I actually meant turning your phone into a paperweight... Trying to restore with software other iTunes, there is a good chance of bricking the phone.
You can restore to factory defaults via Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings.
You can upgrade the firmware without iTunes if you are running iOS 5 via Settings > General > Software Update.
You can't restore or flash without iTunes if your iOS device is broken, in recovery or DFU mode.
