What is Fixppo

Put simply, the iMyFone Fixppo app is a tool to repair the iOS operating system. It's a simple and straightforward alternative to use when your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is left on the startup screen with the Apple logo, when it's unresponsive, or when it's hung up leaving the screen blank or black.

Its purpose is to restore the device to its normal functionality by repairing errors that may have occurred in the operating system code. 

The great advantage of Fixppo is that it has a free trial version available that you can use to test the program's functionality and ease of use.

These are the situations in which Fixppo can help you

Standard mode:

This mode is perfect for solving most of the common iOS problems. These are the steps to use it:

Download and install Fixppo. Open the app and select Standard Mode. Connect the iOS device to the computer using the corresponding USB cable and unlock it (if possible). 

If the program cannot detect your device, follow the onscreen instructions to put it into DFU / recovery mode. Various firmware versions compatible with your device will appear. Select one and click "Download". Once the download is complete, click "Start" and the program will begin repairing your device. Keep the device connected until the program ends.

Advanced mode:

This is the mode to choose if the standard mode does not solve the device problem.

To do this, in the main program window select "Advanced mode" and connect the device to the computer via the USB cable. Click "Download" to download the appropriate firmware for your device. Click on the "Start" button and the program will start trying to repair your device.

The free demo version only allows you to enter recovery mode and exit recovery mode. This way you will be able to know if the program can easily recover your device or if its problems are more serious and will require advanced mode.
