I’ve seen countless complaints in the comments regarding saved SHSH blobs using TinyUmbrella not showing up in Cydia. Well, I can finally expect to see those complaints put to a rest (at least until Apple rolls out another iOS update) as Cydia now shows all saved iOS SHSH blobs up to the latest iOS 4.3.3.

If you’ve launched Cydia today, you’ll notice that if you previously saved your SHSH blobs for iOS 4.3.1, iOS 4.3.2, and iOS 4.3.3 they’ll now appear in the top banner on the Cydia homepage on your iDevice. 

As we’ve mentioned previously, when you save your SHSH blobs using TinyUmbrella, the reason why they do not appear instantly is because saurik must update Cydia (internally) to show the new saved SHSH blobs. When you use TinyUmbrella to save your SHSH blobs, TinyUmbrella automatically saves the SHSH blob in a folder on your computer in addition to sending a copy to Cydia as well.

The latest version of TinyUmbrella (version 4.33.00) supports iOS 4.3.3, but according to TinyUmbrella developer @notcom, there is an issue with Cydia which is preventing the SHSH blobs for iOS 4.3.3 to be saved and sent to Cydia. Notcom states that Saurik has been notified regarding the issue and it should be resolved shortly. We’ll let you know when the issue has been resolved.

    Those little blobs make me happy 🙂 I don’t like the ugly beta blobs though, such as “4.2b3” etc lol, but I guess they are there for a reason! Thanks for the post buddy.

    • DomPerignon

      There is no need to be there but they are.

  • Woody

    I guess cydia doesn’t automatically save your shsh’s like it was suppose too. My 3GS didn’t save the shsh for 4.3.2 on cydia but it shows 4.3.1 and 4.3.3

  • 4.3.3 is indeed showing but my 4.3.2 has now gone AWOL.

    • Rey

      Mine too. all are there but 4.3.2. I saved 4.3.2 blobs in TinyUmbrella and iSHSHit and they both saved but not showing in Cydia but yet 4.3.3 is and I am NOT even running 4.3.3, I am running 4.3.2. =P

  • Woody

    Glad to see I’m not the only one not showing 4.3.2. Anyone not showing it?

  • WTFX

    Finally! My Cydia had been showing 4.2.1 blobs only for ages, even after it was earlier reported to be fixed. Now finally it’s fixed for me. Not that the lack of them displaying bothered me too much since I knew they were saved since TU grabs them from Saurik’s server (on default settings) and I had local copies anyway, but it sorta looks more 1337 now.. 😛 Props to Saurik & thx to Kickstar13 for the heads-up!

  • WTFX

    4.3.2 showing fine here. To clarify, I had only 4.2.1 showing before today, now it shows 4.2.1, 4.3, 4.3b2, 4.3b3, 4.3.1, 4.3.2 & 4.3.3. Slept on the 4.3b1 but doesn’t seem the beta blobs are gonna be much of use anyway, not much hope in Monte anymore. & The iPhone came with 4.2.1, was a lateish buyer.

  • Koppis

    I have Cydia showing blobs for 4.2.1 and 4.3.3, even though I’m on 4.2.1 and never upgraded.

    • Juan

      This is because SHSH blogs can be created for your device even if your device is not at the current, official iOS release. This is normal.

    • Juan

      Sorry, SHSH blobs, not blogs. hehe.

      • How can i get the SHSH blobs that been created by Cydia?

  • Ike

    I’m also on 4.2.1 and it shows that I have my blobs saved for 4.3.3?

  • Juan

    For aethetic reasons, SHSH blobs should be shown in the “manage account” panel or somewhere else other than at the top of the main cydia page. Just my opinion.

    • Juan

      Also, beta blobs should not be shown especially only when .00000000001% of jailbreaks install beta builds. again, just my opinion.

  • Morgan

    Cydia shows my SHSH to be 4.2.1, 4.3.2, 4.3.3. However I’m not using 4.3.3, I never upgraded from 4.3.2, though I did have 4.2.1 as my original JB iOS.

  • Morgan

    Oh, never mind, I just saw the reason – Cydia can create 4.3.3.

  • esem

    how can I solve “API error, permission denied” when I attempt to open an app in installous???
    thanks for anyone who can help.

  • Sarah

    Hi there does anyone know how to downgrade an iPhone 4 from 4.3.3 to 4.0.1 so I can jailbreak it. The only problem is that I don’t have the SHSH blob saved or does anyone know where I can download the SHSH blob for iPhone 4 below 4.3.3. Can you email me as soon as possible.

    • sandeep

      Hi i was wondering the same thing … Could you please reply to me as well

  • flux690


    Just got an iphone 3GS so I’m a noob at this jailbreaking and stuff. The dude I got the iphone from upgraded to ios 4.3.4 then 2 days later went out and bought an iphone 4. So he sold me the 3GS. I’d like to jailbreak and unlock this phone so I can use it on my carrier.

    Obviously I don’t have the 4.3.3 shsh blob saved. Does someone have one they can send me or is there a place I can download one.


  • flux690

    Never mind. Just found an article that says the shsh blobs are ecid device specific. Well looks like I paid $150 for a paper weight.

  • IphoneProblem

  • jeff92677

    I have the file “iPhone3,1_4.3.3_8J2_Restore.ipsw” and Cydia shows SHSH 4.3.3 (and several others). My iPhone 4 is currently on Version 4.0 (8A293). How do I get iTunes to let me upgrade to 4.3.3 (which can be jailbroken) ??

    • Christian

      You must use a program called TinyUmbrella to do this, Just search it on google and look for a tutorial on how to downgrade… You might find one, I am just very lucky with my natural born talent of figuring things out on my own 😛

    • Inigo

      Use tiny umbrella,, start tss server then open itunes,, click shift and restore then browse your ipsw ( for windows only) then it shoiuld be fine, it works for me 3x…. 2 iphone 4 and 1 ipod touch4…. Peace

  • Fadi

  • sandra

    i cant downgrade iphone 4 after i upgrade to 4.3.5

  • JEG

    I have a 3gs JB running 4.2.1. Would like to upgrade to 4.3.3. However, Cydia shows all my blobs up to 4.3.5 EXCEPT 4.3.3 so if I use Itunes to try and restore pwned 4.3.3, pointed at Cydia, I get a message that this device isn’t eligible for this upgrade Thoughts on how to do this? BTW, doesn’t show up in Tiny Umbrella either.

  • jimmy
