Making Videos using iTools

One of the easiest ways of making a video of Celtic Heroes is using a free program called iTools. It might not have the best quality, but it has some great advantages too

1) Do not need to jailbreak
2) can be used with any device
3) Easy upload to YouTube

In this post I will walk you how to get set up with iTools, and walk you through the creation process from installing the software to publishing your video on YouTube

  1. Get a computer. Any kind is fine as long as it has USB

  3. Extract the zip file to a location that you are going to run it from. The program doesn't install, you just run the .exe that is in the zip file
  4. Open up iTools, and you will see that it asks you to connect your iDevice to the comptuer through USB
  5. Use your USB charging cable to connect your iDevice to your computer, and iTools will see that you have connected your device. Note on the picture below that my device has not been jailbroken.
