TinyUmbrella has been updated to allow you to save your SHSH blobs on iOS 4.2.1 for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. If you are a jailbreaker and have 2 minutes to spare, I suggest you use it to save your SHSH blobs.

In case you don’t know what TinyUmbrella is, it is a utility that allows you to save SHSH blobs, files that are necessary when you try to downgrade your iPhone to a previous iOS version. Without them, you couldn’t downgrade. While most people don’t care, it is especially helpful for jailbreakers…

To use it, just download TinyUmbrella from here, plug your iPhone in, and click “Save SHSH”.

Better safe than sorry. No?

  • james016

    Done and my SHSH’s are saved at work. Just need to do it at home.

  • Takean

    So does this mean it’s safe to go ahead and update to 4.2.1 after we do this? I ask because the other day I read a big stink on this blog about not doing the jailbreak because tiny umbrella couldn’t bring you out.

    • Matthew

      @Takean, hey I wouldn’t suggust that u upgrade just yet. Unless ur stuck w/ at&t service (or the official SP in ur country) n don’t care about a unlock to different carriers. I strongly suggest u wait till the unlock comes out by this comming Sunday. That way u can use tinyumbrella to save shsh then IF the unlock support the new bb for ios 4.2.1 upgrade/jb/unlock. ***NOTE*** the unlocker won’t support iphone 4 yet, so if that’s what u have I REALLY RECOMMEND waiting a while longer. From what I understand it doesn’t seem as if there has been any confirmation if the jb is an untethered one for the iphone4. But please note, icould b wrong about that. Its been a day or 3 since I read up about the jb for iphone4.

      • Takean

        Unfortunately I’m stuck with AT&T and so an unlock isn’t for me. However, jailbroken status us a must for me and so I didn’t want to update yet unless it’s safe too

  • James

    I really don’t see much reason to go to a tethered 4.2 if your currently on a untethered 4.1, no huge benefits, and a lot of apps that still are not compatible. Stick with 4.1 for a while and lets see what comes about to possible untether 4.2

    Ok so I’m a bonehead. Thought I wasn’t going to want to unlock my iPhone 4 but INDEED I do. I just upgraded about a week ago to 4.2.1. I know there isn’t a jail break for 4.2.1 yet but I want to downgrade back to 4.1 and when trying to do so I do it through itunes and choose the old restore file that I got from online yet when it verifies with apple says Im not eligible to continue and shuts me down. I have tiny umbrella have been looking everywhere to try to be able to downgrade so I can jailbreak. Any sugguestions/help.. much appreciated.
