Backing up your firmware SHSH blobs is an important step if you ever decide to jailbreak your iPhone, because it allows you to downgrade your firmware if the need ever arises, and sometime it does.

Although Cydia takes a lot of the pain out of this for you by backing up your iPhone’s blobs itself, it gives me peace of mind to have a second copy backed up personally, just in case something goes wrong. Step inside, and we’ll show you how iSHSHit allows you to do just that…

Although tried and true methods like TinyUmbrella exist, it really doesn’t get any easier than iSHSHit when it comes to personally backing up your SHSH blobs. If you want to be 100% sure that you have your blobs, what better way than to email them to yourself, straight from your device?

Once you’ve downloaded and installed the app from Cydia, an app icon for iSHSHit will be placed on your Home screen. Load the app, and you’ll be presented with a section displaying your unique chip ID, an option to change your Model, and the SHSH blob you need to backup. You can even choose to back them all up in one fell swoop.

Once you’ve selected your desired settings, a tap of the save button will download the requested blobs to your device; from there you can easily e-mail one, or all of them to yourself.

Of course one of the best things about iSHSHit, besides its small learning curve, is the fact that it’s totally free for jailbroken iPhones. Really, there is no excuse for you to not have your SHSH blobs backed up on a regular basis, and iSHSHit makes doing so extremely easy.

Are you willing to try iSHSHit, or will you be sticking to the tried and true TinyUmbrella for your backup needs?

    Done it this yesterday. And I’ve got to say that this is got to be one of the easier ways to back up SHSHs . Now i got my SHSHs backed up 3 times Cydia ,Umbrella , and now iSHSHit .

      Talk about having all your eggs in 3 baskets. Lol

  • Kormirluk

  • Captain_mmbpp

    I’ve already updated my FW to 4.1 with BB 5.14.02… Is there any other way to downgrade the BB? I cant unlock my iPhone using ultrasn0w!!! I don’t want to upgrade to BB 6.15.00 without any assurance that it will have no crash or what so ever… I’m really desperate and frustrated with this issue.

    • Burge

      No downgrade of baseband

  • Captain_mmbpp

    Also, I’ve tried to downgrade it to it’s original FW which is 4.0.1 but the BB is still at 5.14.02. BTW, i am using an MC model for iphone 3GS. Please help

  • Captain_mmbpp

    I have my SHSHs saved through tinyumbrella with FW 4.0, 4.0.1 and 4.0.2 but iTunes won’t let me downgrade to 4.0. It says “iPhone could not be restored because the FW is not compatible” something like that. Sorry if my English is not that good but I know that you Are getting my point.

    • Burge

      You just can not downgrade your baseband..if you have your SHSHs for 4.0 4.0.1 and so on you can downgrade your iOS but not you baseband…that’s does not downgrade …you have says that your original firmware is 4.0.1 so I doubt you have SHSHs for 4.0

    Hi all, where can I get this iSHSHit? Do I need to add any certain source in Cydia?

  • Captain_mmbpp

    That’s what it says in cydia. I have a 4.0 shsh. tiny umbrella also recognized it. Well I guess I have to update to 6.15.00 BB for me to unlock my phone because Sherif Hashim is no longer working on 5.14.02/5.15.00 BB.

  • Vic_doom

    I have an iPhone 4 with firmware 4.1 jailbroke with limerain. When I tried to back up my shsh in cydia it just says I have a pending TSS request. Also when i use this app it will only let me back up 4.2.1 anyone know why I can’t back up the 4.1 that I am using

    • Vic_doom

      Nvm. I figured it out, just had to donate digging in google. Based on what I read apple isnt signing 4.1 anymore and is only signing 4.2.1 and I would have had to back it up when they were. Is this correct?

      • Burge

        Yes …when a new firmware comes out get your SHSHs for new firmware straight away…Cydia just might have your 4.1 SHSHs . Try using tssumbrella to get them

  • The requested firmware is no longer available for signing.

    What does this mean? Is it unusable?
