RecBoot is similar to ReiBoot. It can also help to free reboot iPhone, iPad, iPod. With only 2 buttons on the interface, you just need to enter recovery mode and exit recovery mode. Then your device will reboot. The defect of it is that it is not too stable to exit recovery mode.

It also has the buttons to get device into recovery mode and then exit iPhone, iPad, iPod recovery mode. Thus your device will be forced to reboot. However, some users reported that Tiny Umbrella sometimes cannot recognize the device.
When your iPhone, iPad, or iPod is stuck in recovery mode loop and the device becomes unresponsive no matter how hard you try to press Home/Power button, one of the preferences you can try is iReb. It can reboot iOS device free. One of the flaws is that you might suffer data loss.

RedSn0w is a jailbreak tool, but it has additional features, one of which is Recovery Fix. It can help to get out of recovery mode and then reboot your device.
