PurpleRestore is a tool used by Apple to restore iOS devices, especially for engineering tests.
It is made to do almost everything related to iOS restoring, including restore to every hardware-compatible iOS version, make root filesystem writable, system partition size, adding/removing boot & restore args, activation bypass, break between restore stages and more. Instead of regular .IPSW files to restore iOS devices, PurpleRestore uses “restore bundles”. They can be made by unzipping a regular .IPSW file.
Using this tool at home will do nothing more than iTunes already does. Release type firmwares will be restored without considering additional options (boot-args, activation bypass, etc.). It is also not possible to restore to a firmware unsigned by Apple (no downgrades). The only différences with iTunes’ iOS restore process are the Apple’s logo in purple background and the possibility to see restore steps, in PurpleRestore. .
