PurpleRestore3 - iOS 10.0.x-11 beta 2, build 14A171
Requierd MAC OS X 10.9.5 ( some apps not working on this version) up to macOS Sierra 10.12.6
PurpleRestore 3 is the latest known version of PurpleRestore. It was initially leaked on Twitter in October 2016. The update sports a redesigned user interface and icon, support for IPSW files, and revealed the existence of an internal PurpleRestore wiki, which most likely requires access to Apple's internal VPN. The boot screen on the device doesn't turn purple when restoring with the tool without a debug UART cable, unlike previous versions of the tool. PurpleRestore 3 also has full macOS Sierra support, which was broken in most of the previous builds.
The updated utility also allows you to flash a custom boot logo. This likely requires authorization with TSS to personalize the IMG3/IMG4 before flashing the image to the device.
