IDA 7.6

  • A+

HighlightsApple Silicon support

IDA for macOS is now available as a native ARM64 binary which can make full use of the M1 chip’s incredible performance.

It is hard to overstate just how much IDA benefits from the new speed boost. Autoanalysis completes much quicker, the UI is noticeably snappier, and almost every other feature in IDA seems smoother when running on M1. Our beta testers reported that IDA 7.6 is “incredibly stable” and “way faster” on Apple Silicon – so it seems our excitement is not misplaced.

Debugging native arm64 processes is also supported on M1, including arm64e:

See the updated macOS debugging tutorial here.

The native ARM build of IDA is available for free to all owners of an active Mac license (including IDA Home users).

Golang analysis

The Go language (aka golang) from Google is getting popular thanks to its ease of use, performance, and self-contained binaries not requiring dependencies. Due to some of the language designers’ decisions the golang binaries are quite different from those produced by other compilers and some changes were required in IDA to properly support its peculiarities.

Among additions:

parsing of golang-specific metadata to recover function names and boundaries

support for stack-based parameters and return values even on platfoms that usually use registers (ARM, x64)

detection of golang-specific string literals

Here’s an example of how a stripped golang binary for ARM looks like in IDA 7.5:

and in 7.6:

Almost twice as many functions were recovered and named.

Decompiler improvements

automatic renaming of variables

Although interactivity is IDA’s selling point, it still tries to do as much as possible to automate mundane tasks. With this release the decompiler will try to automatically assign names to variables and structure fields based on assignments and function calls.

See two snippets from decompilation of the same binary. Left: IDA 7.5, right: 7.6.

improved recognition of stack arrays

arrays on stack can be difficult to detect automatically since usually only their first elements are referenced explicitly. We have added heuristics which recover arrays in many typical situations, reducing the need for manual intervention.

empty lines for better readability

If you add GENERATE_EMPTY_LINES = YES to hexrays.cfg, the decompiler will add extra empty lines between compound statements and before labels, which improves readability of long functions.

New processor modules: RISC-V and RL78

Our processor selection contiues to expand steadily.

RISC-V is an open ISA which is starting to become available in various hardware such as the latest iteration of the Espressif Systems wireless platform, ESP32-C3.

RL78 from Renesas is a 16-bit descendedant of the 8-bit NEC 78k0(s) family previously supported by IDA and is used in various automotive and consumer applications.


We also added some new functionality to enrich bookmarks management in the UI.

As before, you can use Alt-M/Ctrl-M to add/jump to a bookmark, but now you can also use Ctrl-Shift-M to bring up a separate bookmarks view with the global list of bookmarks that can be grouped into folders:

Also, bookmarked addresses will now be highlighted in the disassembly. You can use Options>Colors to change the highlight color to whatever you want:

Other UI improvements

Processor list in the Load File dialog is now organized using folder view which can be filtered using Ctrl-F

You can now use cut&paste in folder views instead of dragging things with the mouse

The Strings list is now cached in the database. The Strings window is one of the most commonly used views in IDA for quick reconnaissance. However, depending on the settings it can take a long to to scan the whole database which had to be repeated each time on reopening the window or reloading the database. Now we cache the list so opening it the second time is almost instant.

Compressed macOS and iOS kernelcache support

In the recent iOS and macOS versions, the kernelcache files are compressed. Although there are tools available which can decompress them, it’s one more thing to remember. Now IDA handles the standard compressed formats transparently so you can simply load them as standard Mach-O files. Since IDA can also handle ZIP files, you can open them directly from the IPSW updates!

Retpoline handling

Retpoline (return trampoline) is a compile-time mitigation against the Spectre speculative execution vulnerability disclosed in 2017. Binaries compiled with this option use special thunk functions for indirect jumps which tend to break standard control flow analysis. IDA now detects and handles these thunks transparently, resulting in nice and clean function graphs and pseudocode.

Example binary using retpoline thunks.

In IDA 7.5:


and 7.6:


Python 3.9 support

Python 3.9 was released after IDA 7.5 and changed the layout of some internal structures leading to crashes in scripts or plugins using PyQt. IDA 7.6 adds official support for 3.9 (while still supporting previous 3.x versions and 2.7). Python 3.9.1 is also officially available for macOS on ARM64 and can be used by IDA there.

'XREF'.BUGFIX: UI: it was impossible to turn columns off/on in tabular views when they are in folders modeBUGFIX: UI: filtering folders-enabled views, should hide the folders that don't have any contentBUGFIX: UI: pressing Enter in a dirtree widget would erroneously edit the item on macOS.BUGFIX: UI: when exporting data as a "String literal", IDA could fail to properly decode text for IDBs that use UTF-8 as internal encodingBUGFIX: UI: when using dark theme on macOS and linux, text within combobox menus could be clippedBUGFIX: UI: when using dark theme on macOS, selected items in tree views could be colored incorrectly.BUGFIX: UI: list of local types could change after enabling foldersBUGFIX: UI: opening an ida_kernwin.PluginForm at a specific position could failBUGFIX: UI: quick searching (i.e., by simply typing a string) in tabular/tree views might not yield the expected results.BUGFIX: UI: rebasing a tree widget could cause IDA to show empty entriesBUGFIX: UI: scrolling in the navigation band could jitter with very segmented address spacesBUGFIX: UI: searching for all occurrences of a binary data in "Hex View-1", closing "Hex View-1" and then attempting to jump, would cause IDA to crashBUGFIX: UI: selecting a portion of an identifier for highlighting, and then searching up/down (Alt+Up/Alt+Down) for that text, would cause the entire identifier to become highlightedBUGFIX: UI: sorting folders would only sort folders contents, but not the folders themselvesBUGFIX: UI: the 'grabbable' band for a floating window (used to dock it back) was not easy to spotBUGFIX: UI: the "Current line" message could fail to display in some views when folders were enabledBUGFIX: UI: the "Watch List" window wouldn't refresh when one of its items was renamed from the disassembly listingBUGFIX: UI: the column "func#" in the Signatures list was not properly sortable as a numberBUGFIX: UI: types could be duplicated in the folder view of 'Local types' windowBUGFIX: UI: Undo wouldn't cause previously-rebased 'Imports' to get their original address backBUGFIX: UI: using quick filtering with a regex, wouldn't highlight the part of the string that matches (as it does for lexicographical searches)BUGFIX: UI: when folders are enabled in tabular views, 'Copy/Copy all' could fail to work as expected.BUGFIX: UI: when folders were enabled on certain widgets, and the IDB was saved (e.g., by clicking on the 'save' icon), but then not saved again when closing, the widget would show up in no-folders modeBUGFIX: UI: when switching to a folders-enabled chooser, the folders might fail to have focusBUGFIX: UI: with certain fonts, the 'registers' widget could truncate the register names/values by a few pixels, making it harder to readBUGFIX: UI: zooming in the navigation band, could lose localityBUGFIX: Using "Jump to local type..." in a Pseudocode view's context menu wouldn't expand the tree of types to the right place (assuming the "Local types" has been toggled to be using folders.)BUGFIX: debugger: single-stepping could be sluggish with multi-threaded apps, especially in the Mac debugger (see Debugger>Debugger options>Optimize single-stepping. it is enabled by default for Mac debugger).BUGFIX: decompiler: "create new struct type" could generate a new struct type with forbidden characters, like <BUGFIX: decompiler: arm64: some references to external symbols would not be resolvedBUGFIX: decompiler: assignments to members of structurs later passed by reference could be optimized awayBUGFIX: decompiler: automapping variables was too aggressive in some casesBUGFIX: decompiler: bit-manipulation instructions 16-bit registers were emulated incorrectly (shift count is only 4 bits for them)BUGFIX: decompiler: changing the type of a structure field would cause the loss of the __cppobj attributeBUGFIX: decompiler: decompile() would crash if asked to decompile an unexisting function (nullptr)BUGFIX: decompiler: decompiler could crash after using "extract func" if a pseudocode window with the deleted function info was presentBUGFIX: decompiler: fixed a crash in the recognition of magic divisionsBUGFIX: decompiler: fixed a crash on corrupted idbsBUGFIX: decompiler: fixed an endless loop (extremely rare)BUGFIX: decompiler: fixed interr 52194BUGFIX: decompiler: global xref cache could become stale after a user action that was changing only the line numbers (like adding a comment)BUGFIX: decompiler: in some cases 'split expression' had no effectBUGFIX: decompiler: in some cases action "Reset pointer type" was not working (had no effect)BUGFIX: decompiler: in some cases decompiler could generate a wrong post-increment/decrement operatorBUGFIX: decompiler: in some cases the decompiler would add a suffix to the user-defined names (myvar->myvara)BUGFIX: decompiler: in some cases the user could not add variadic arguments to a function callBUGFIX: decompiler: jumping to the pseudocode from another window (for example, from the local types) would fail to activate the window in some casesBUGFIX: decompiler: ppc: fixed address arithmetics when subtracting addressesBUGFIX: decompiler: recognition of inlined memset() was too aggressive in some cases (a xor loop could be converted to memset)BUGFIX: decompiler: renaming a structure field would cause the loss of the __cppobj attributeBUGFIX: decompiler: shifted pointers with negative offsets were not always applicableBUGFIX: decompiler: some assignments could not be splitBUGFIX: decompiler: some xrefs to enum members would be missed by Ctrl-Alt-XBUGFIX: decompiler: stale cached pseudocode was not refreshed in some casesBUGFIX: decompiler: the decompiler could crash when displaying the global xref list if the cache was staleBUGFIX: decompiler: trying to rename a variable as "@@x" would lead to a fatal errorBUGFIX: decompiler: while(2){switch...} could be decompiled incorrectly in some casesBUGFIX: decompiler: wrmsr instruction could be decompiled wrongly (value of edx was unused)BUGFIX: decompiler: x87 fscale instruction was decompiled incorrectlyBUGFIX: windbg: segment bitness could be determined incorrectly
