#!/bin/echo Don't execute this script directly, source it into your shell.
# This script will attempt to make your macOS system behave more like GNU for shell scripts
# by diverting as many commands as possible, to the GNU versions, provided by Homebrew
# For most Homebrew tools, their presence in /usr/local/bin and that being in your $PATH
# means you can use them as-is, but some tools appear with different names because macOS
# already has such a tool (e.g. find(1)). These tools generally also have a `gnubin` path
# which we can use to make them higher priority than the macOS equivalents.

Guide to extract the root file system and decompress the kernel cache for iOS.

iOS File System Extraction

For iOS 10 and Up

Starting with iOS 10.0 Apple decrypted the file system and kernel cache. All you have to do is download an IPSW, change the extension to .zip, and unarchive it. The largest size disk image inside the unarchived zip will be the root file system. Simply mount it to see its contents.

Links to download all iOS IPSWs.

For iOS 9 and Below

Originally from /u/RowRocka on Reddit. Gently edited for clarity.

Links to download all iOS OTA ZIPs.
