fwlinksbot is special. He tells you about stuff that goes on as it happens (first, actually). You should want him in your channel. If you do, contact me!

More about this:

When any event happens in terms of the fwlinks updaters (i.e. firmware, iTunes, redsn0w, PwnageTool, iFaith, sn0wbreeze, etc release or SHSH signing changes), fwlinksbot actually posts by default to the IRC channels that he’s in, in a format similar to this:

[10:55] <+fwlinksbot> [Update] Something awesome has happened! (but kinda more detailed :P)

And yes, he’s a “he”.

So, onto the commands.


Commands are as follows:

Where <item> indicates a required field. If the items in brackets are not found, they will default to the following:



e.g. iPhone3,1_4.1_8B117_Restore.ipsw
     |_______| |_| |___|
         |      |    |
         |      |    \----- BuildID: 8B117
         |      \---------- Version: 4.1
         \----------------- Identifier/device: iPhone3,1

Some Examples

This documentation and the fwlinksbot will most likely receive updates in the near future.
