What you need:

  • a jailbroken iDevice
  • MobileTerminal iOS app (available from default cydia repos) or you can do a USB SSH tunnel thru iFunbox (you will need afc2add and openssh from default cydia re posfor this) DOWNLOAD iFUNBOX
  • iFIle or iFunbox to explore the iPhone’s filesystem and set permissions (if using iFunbox, you need afc2add from default cydia scources) grab a .deb for a crackedcopy of ifile here: (HERE)
  • a copy of clutch




get the latest clutch – by installing clutch (stable) from the repo – ) (zorro put that thing on the repo xD)

STEP 1 – MANUAL INSTALLATION (skip if you installed thru cydia)


1. DOWNLOAD a copy of Clutch
2. MOVE clutch to usr/bin using iFile or iFunobx

3. RENAME clutch, by default the file will be named something unwieldy like clutch131 or Clutch 1.3.2-git,
you can rename it to something easier to type in, for the purpose of this tutorial, we will name it ” clutch “, but really you can name it whatever you like.
To rename it, in iFile press the blue arrow next to the filename, then delete the old name and enter “clutch”

4. SET permissions to Read, Write, Execute , to do this in iFile, press the blue arrow next to the filename, to get the file info, and then scroll down a little bit until you see permissions.

SET permissions for user, group, and world to Read, Write, Execute.

you should have this:

How to SET permissions in iFunbox:


RIGHT CLICK on the file in iFunbox, and select set permissions

SET permissions for user, group, and world to Read, Write, Execute.



Instead of using MobileTerminal on your iDevice, you can do a SSH Tunnel via USB with iFunbox, install openSSH (defualt cydia repos) first.

1. OPEN the terminal app on your springboard.

You will get this window:

2. Next you will get root access to your device, which is necessary for clutch.


press RETURN, you will be prompted for a password, your default password is alpine
ENTER your password and press RETURN, you now have root access

3. LAUNCH the configuration utility. Enter exactly : clutch -C (notice the letter “C” must be capitalized)

4. There will be a series of options to configure.

Enter “YES” or “NO” to each of them, and for the email, enter anything you want to come up in the apple ID in the metadata, it doesn’t necessarily have to be in email format

5.Then you can’t set compression, etc.When you get thru config, you will get a message and there will be nothing more to configure, simply restart terminal, or open a new tab in terminal, etc.

Instead of using MobileTerminal on your iDevice, you can do a SSH Tunnel via USB with iFunbox

1. OPEN the terminal app on your springboard.
2. GET root access (how to coverd above0
3. ENTER ” clutch ” (remember, if you renamed the script something else, enter that instead of “clutch”)
4. You will get this numbered menu

5. ENTER clutch followed by the number that corresponds with the app you want to crack.
If I want to crack Facebook, I enter” clutch -b 5″
6. The application will then crack
7.The IPAs are in /var/tmp/clutch copy them to your PC with iFunbox and upload.



Or simply use the terminal:


Once I was connected I typed “Clutch2” which showed the following options:


Typing “Clutch2 –i” displayed all of the app store apps installed on the device:



I decided to dump the third application (which I don’t want to display since I didn’t write the app) so I ran “Clutch2 –b <BundleID#>”. If I had wanted to dump the second app (WordPress) I would have typed “Clutch2 –b org.wordpress”. Clutch2 quickly generated the following output:



The decrypted binary was placed under the /var/tmp/clutch directory. I used ifunbox to copy both the decrypted binary and the original binary (located in /var/mobile/Containers/Bundle/Application/xxxx) to my computer so I could compare the before and after results. Normally Mach-O executable files contain code for multiple arm architectures and you need to use the OSX command line tool “lipo” to extract the arm version that you would like to analyze but in this case the application only contained code for armv7 so that wasn’t necessary.

Below you can see where I ran file on an iOS app with multiple architectures (armv7s and armv7) and file on this application which only has one architecture.










Once I confirmed that I wasn’t dealing with multiple architectures I used the strings command to extract the txt from both the original binary and the binary which Clutch2 produced. The original encrypted version is on the left and the post Clutch2 decrypted version is on the right.










As you can see the decrypted version gives us quite a bit more information about what’s going on inside of the application and I can start to use the tricks I learned in the SANS SEC575 course to analyze the app and it’s behavior.

NOTE: The acceptable mapping in Evernote and OneNote would be:

  • Evernote <> OneNote
  • Evernote stacks and notebooks <> OneNote notebooks
  • Evernote/stacks and notebooks/notebook <> OneNote/notebook/section
    where Evernote notebook is mapped to OneNote section

Here are short instructions on how to setup two-way synchronization between notebooks in Evernote and OneNote

Unlocking bootloader is fairly simple and is just like any other android device as oneplus supports unlocking bootloader and it does not void warranty as well.

Set Up Fastboot & ADB Drivers:

What’s ADB? ADB stands for Android Debug Bridge. It works when the device is powered on and booted into OS or Recovery. The tool helps in sending basic linux commands, and a variety Android specific commands from PC to connected Android devices.

What’s Fastboot?Fastboot works only in bootloader/fastboot mode. It allows you to re-flash system partitions on your Android device and requires a device with an unlocked bootloader. It’s particularly useful when you want to update your device manually or in a rare situation when you accidentally soft-brick your device and need to install a clean stock system image.

Thanks to XDA member Snoop05 who has developed a small program to quickly install both ADB and Fastboot files on your PC (system-wide) along with proper drivers.

Downloads and installation instructions below:


Download 15 seconds ADB Installer (9.1 MB)

Filename: adb-setup-1.3.exe

1. Download the adb-setup-1.3.exe file from the download link above.

2. Double-click/Run the adb-setup-1.3.exe file.

3. You will see a command prompt window with blue background. Say YES to all the prompts on this screen.
└ To say YES, just typeYand hit enter.


Once ADB, Fastboot and Drivers are installed, the setup window will automatically close and you’ll have a working ADB and Fastboot setup throughout your system.
