TinyUmbrella, the tool that allows you to save your SHSH blobs to let you downgrade your iDevice firmware to an older version, has been updated to bring support for iOS 5.0.1.

As we had previously reported, there is currently no way to downgrade an iPhone 4S due to the way Apple now signs your firmware during the restore process (more info about that here)…

Even though there is still no working solution for restoring 5.x on iPhone 4S I have released a 5.01.00 so you can at least save 5.0.1 SHSH. I have added tentative support for at least saving 5.0.1 SHSHs for iPhone 4S but as of now we are unable to use them fully.

It’s still a good thing to save your SHSH blobs, even if you are on an iPhone 4S. You never know what the future might hold and you’d better be safe than sorry.

You can download the latest version of TinyUmbrella from our downloads section.

  • So does it mean I can save my shsh iOS 5.0 iPhone 4S?????? Or just the iOS 5.0.1

    • Like it says 5.0.1..Apple have stopped signing 5.0, so there is no way to get them even if you want them..

  • I wish they could have done this sooner so we could have saved iOS 5.0 blobs too.

    • Wasn’t TinyUmbrella 5.00.12a good for saving 5.0?

      • Not for the i4s ..I tried..

  • Still, 5.0.1 blobs are better then no blobs..

    Is it possible to downgrade an iPhone 4 on 5.0.1 to 5.0? This article makes it seem like this limitation applies only to the 4S, when I was under the impression it was currently not possible for any iOS device.

    • No..

    • You can downgrade from 5.0.1 to 4.x.x if you have blobs saved but it’s not possible (at this time) to downgrade to 5.0.0.

    Does this mean you can’t downgrade on 4S, but YOU CAN in 3GS/4?

  • Does Cydia still automatically grab your SHSH for current firmware? i have 2 devices and its doesn’t look like i got the 5.0 blobs 🙁

    • Cydia takes it’s time in updating which blobs are actually saved. It’s best to use TU to make sure.

    • If you do a restore in iTunes your device will end up with 5.0.1
