How to find duplicate songs in iTunes 12

How to find duplicate songs in iTunes 12
ITunes has an easy way to find duplicate songs in your library. If you notice that some songs in iTunes you play twice, the problem is easy to solve.
Songs in the library are often copied and repeated twice, especially over time. If you import music from iTunes from discs, download songs from the Internet, buy them in iTunes, Amazon and elsewhere, then after a while your songs will start to repeat exactly.
ITunes has long been a feature that allows you to find duplicate songs, but in the version of iTunes 12.0 and newer it was moved, which led to the stupor of many users. Below, we'll tell you where to find it.

How to find duplicate songs in iTunes 12

  1. Open the program
  2. Go to your Mediathek.
  3. Go to File> Media Library.
  4. Then select Show duplicates.
  5. iTunes shows you a list of duplicate songs whose duplicates can be deleted. 

How to distinguish a duplicate from a track with a similar name?

The songs in the list of duplicates may not be repeating, but simply have the same name. Sometimes the program takes as a duplicate two different versions of the song, like remixes.
To distinguish a duplicate from a similar track will help the column with the duration of the songs. If the tracks are the same length, then most likely they are duplicates. The name of the album can also help. It's best to just listen to the songs to find out exactly which ones you can delete.
It is also worth noting that voice records with standard names will be marked as duplicates, even if they are not.

2 ways to check the status of SHSH2 Blobs

2 ways to check the status of SHSH2 Blobs
Knowing the status of SHSH2 blobs is very important if you plan to upgrade or roll back to a version that no longer subscribes. This will help avoid problems already during the process itself using futurerestore.
If you saved .shsh2 blob with tsssaver .1 conan com  or tsschecker, then the compatibility of the files with some models should be checked. In mid-February 2017 a bug appeared that made some blob files useless.
Before that, you need to know the configuration of the board of your device. It can be found in the Battery Memory System Status Monitor application. Open the application, go to the System tab and see the model of your device.
As an example, we will use Windows and check the compatibility of iPhone 5s GSM with iOS 10.3.3 blob. The same can be done on a Mac or Linux.

A simple way to check the status of SHSH Blobs

Step 2:  Select your .shsh2 file.
If you have several files saved, it's best to select the latest one, but you can check everything, and then delete unnecessary ones.
Step 3:  Select the device model and iOS version of your blob and click Submit.
Step 4:  If the board configuration matches your device, your SHSH2 file will work. You can use this .shsh2 blob in futurerestore to update or rollback.

Advanced way to check the status of SHSH Blobs

This method is suitable for those who used to save TSSCHECKER files.
Before you start the process, you must have the following files:
Step 1:  Create a folder on the hard disk (for example, D: img4tool) and copy the contents of the archive there.
Step 2:  Copy the .shsh2 file to the img4tool folder. You can rename your .shsh2 file to "my.shsh2" to make it more convenient.
Step 3:  Open the .ipsw file with 7zip or a similar program and copy BuildManifest.plist to the img4tool folder.
Step 4:  Open a command prompt, locate the img4tool folder, and enter the following command:
img4tool_windows -v BuildManifest.plist -s my.shsh2
If you see 3 [OK], and DeviceClass matches the model of your device, the .shsh2 file will work. You can read our instructions on how to roll back to a non-signed version of the firmware.
Note: As an example, we checked the status of the iOS 10.3.3 file, but before iOS 10 it is no longer possible to roll back if you do not have a special BuildManifest file for the Apple A7 processor.

How to fix an infinite respring after the installation of jailbreak Electra for iOS 11

How to fix an infinite respring after the installation of jailbreak Electra for iOS 11
Jailbreak Electra is currently the best tool for iOS 11, but it also has its own problems.
One of the most unpleasant is endless respring. Typically, this problem occurs after installing something that is incompatible with the firmware of the device. Fortunately, it's pretty simple to solve.
Step 1: First, reboot your device.
Step 2: Now run the Electra application and make sure that the switch next to " Tweaks " is off. 
Step 3: Click the Jailbreak button.
Step 4: Now you need to open an application or program that allows you to access the file system of the device. As an example, you can use WinSCP for Windows or Cyberduck for Mac.
Step 5: After accessing the file system, delete the tweak that causes the problem. Usually, this is the last installed tweak, after which an endless respring began. After uninstalling, restart the device and open the Electra application again.
Step 6: Turn on the switch next to "Tweaks" and press the Jailbreak button again.
Step 7: Jailbreak should be activated again and work without problems until you again install a problem tweak.
Remember that it's always important to learn the tweaks that you install, as they may be incompatible with the version of your firmware. After installing incompatible tweaks, serious problems can begin that will not be so easy to solve. Stay attentive. A list of tweaks compatible with Electra jailbreak, you can find here.

What should I do if Cydia does not appear after installing the Electra jailbreak?

What should I do if Cydia does not appear after installing the Electra jailbreak?
If you installed an Electra 1.0.2 jailbreak on your device, but the Cydia application did not appear, do not worry - you are not alone. Below we will talk about how to solve this problem.
The process consists in removing the jailbreak from the device, and then reinstalling it.
  • You need to remove all tweaks and themes from the device, including the Substitute.
  • If you made any changes with the help of Filza File Manager, etc., then they will need to be cancelled.
  • If you rollback with FutureRestore, DO NOT use this method.
  • On a PC or Mac, you need to install the Cyberduck program.
  • If you have a PC with Windows, install the PuTTY program.
  • Also, you need to download the Delectra script from here.


Step 1: Open Cyberduck and establish a connection to your device with iOS by clicking  Open connection.
Step 2: Select the type of SFTP connection and enter the IP device from which you want to remove the jailbreak. You can find it in the Wi-Fi section of your device's Settings.
Step 3: Enter the username "root" and the password "alpine", if you have not changed the default password before.
Step 4: Click Connect, and then click Allow.
Step 5: Drag the file to the Cyberduck window and confirm the move. After the completion of the process, you will not need the Cyberduck program.
Step 6: Now start PuTTY and re-enter the IP address of your device in the Host Name column, select SSH as the connection type. Click Open and select Yes from the pop-up windows.
Step 7: The SSH terminal will open, connected to your iOS device. Now you need to execute the command to remove the jailbreak.
Step 8: In the PuTTY window, enter "bash ./" and press Enter. The command will be executed.
Step 9: Follow the instructions in the window that will require you to press Enter. The device will need to enter the PIN at least once during the process.
Step 10: When the device restarts, jailbreak must be removed. After that, uninstall the Electra application.
Step 11: Go to Settings> General> Reset> Erase content and settings.

Step 12: Now you can download the latest available version of Electra 1.0.2 and install the tool again.

Jailbreak doubleH3lix for 64-bit devices with iOS 10.3.3 released

Jailbreak doubleH3lix for 64-bit devices with iOS 10.3.3 released
If you thought that the jailbreaking area can no longer be active, you will be surprised by the news that Tihmstar is the developer of jailbreak h3lix for 32-bit devices with iOS 10.3.3 - released the doubleH3lix tool for 64-bit devices with iOS 10.3.3.
Jailbreak for 64-bit devices is called doubleH3lix, so you do not confuse it with the h3lix tool. Its output means that now for the 64-bit devices with iOS 10.3.x you can choose from three tools for jailbreak - doubleH3lix, Meridian and G0blin .
If you previously installed jailbreak h3lix, then know that doubleH3lix can also be trusted, and it works just as well. You can install it right now on your 64-bit device with the appropriate firmware.
doubleH3lix supports 64-bit devices with the version up to iOS 10.3.3, but only up to the iPhone 7, as in subsequent models there is no headphone jack.
On the iPhone 8 and iPhone X can not install iOS 10.xx, because they are initially sold with iOS 11. Accordingly, doubleH3lix will not work only on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus from all 64-bit devices.
If you have a 64-bit device with iOS 10.3.3 and a headphone jack, doubleH3lix will be an excellent tool for jailbreaking.
Tihmstar with his team is trustworthy, so many will take advantage of his new tool. However, most users with supported firmware have already installed other available tools and are unlikely to want to switch to a new one.
If you want to install doubleH3lix, the file can be downloaded from the site doubleh lix , and then upload it to the device using Cydia Impactor.
