    Hi!

    Is it possible to install the .ispw via an update instead of restoring the whole phone? I read some things online about this being possible with iDevicerestore. Anyone knows if and how it’s possible?

    Thanks!

    Yes it is as that's what I did just make sure you have Xcode 11 or macOS 10.15 installed and it should not have any issues

    you can do it from iTunes: download the IPSW, then instead of option-clicking on restore, option-click on the update button and navigate to the IPSW. Warning: you need to have the Xcode 11 beta installed.

    I'm actually downloading Xcode 11 beta, what should i do afterwards to install it? i mean, it needs to be opened, or just move it to Applications folder?

    Keep getting Xcode 11 can't be expanded because the selected volume does not have enough free space. How much storage do I need for it to install?

    Edit: Managed to get it working. Needed roughly 20gb free.

    You can. However, in my experience, doing a restore is more stable.
