Earlier today, Apple released an FAQ to address the controversial location debacle. Apple acknowledged that there was a bug within iOS. When Location Services was turned off, the iPhone continued to updated WiFi and cell tower data from Apple’s crowd-sourced database.

To address this issue, Apple announced that it would be releasing a software update within the next few weeks, most likely iOS 4.3.3. In addition to rectifying the location-tracking issues on iOS devices, Apple might also patch @i0n1c’s untethered iOS 4.3.x jailbreak exploit, leaving you with a tethered jailbreak. 

This would be a good time to save your SHSH blobs for iOS 4.3.2, if you have not already. As we’ve previously stated, these SHSH blobs come in handy when you accidentally update to the latest iOS firmware that cannot be jailbroken and want to downgrade to a previous iOS firmware.

Every device has a unique SHSH blob for each firmware, so it’s a good thing to save them even if you don’t want to jailbreak right now. (You might want to in the near future.) If you’re not sure how to save your SHSH blobs, refer to our previous article regarding the latest version of TinyUmbrella on how to save your SHSH blobs.

    When apple fixes this apparent “unseen” issue (lol). Do you think that would also help with the battery?

    For some reason I dont see my 4.3.2 SHSH in Cydia, can some help?

    • pjg61

      Run Tiny Umbrella 4.32.01 which is 4.3.2 aware. Then you should see them in Cydia. As long as you have a local copy, that’s the most important aspect…

        I have 4.3.2 saved in my TU but it’s not showing up in Cydia. I’ll run it again and see what happens. Thanks

      You won’t see it in Cydia yet as Saurik has to update the Cydia homepage to reflect the new saved SHSH blobs. If TinyUmbrella shows you’ve saved them, it has automatically sent them to Cydia as well.

    I’m still on 4.2.1.

    • c0edx

      Me to…I think 4.2.1 is the best iOS.

  • Daniel

    Is there any benefit to 4.3.2 on iPhone? I am on 4.2.1 and I am very happy with it.

  • keelan

  • NEED HELP
