Infamous iOS hacker and Sn0wBreeze creator iH8sn0w just released a major update for his iFaith application. Like TinyUmbrella, iFaith allows you to save your device’s SHSH blobs, which are needed to preserve your ability to downgrade firmware in the future.

The update supports iOS versions up to 5.0.1, but isn’t yet compatible with A5 iDevices. There also doesn’t seem to be a Mac version available. But if you own an A4 device and have access to a Windows computer, we highly recommend you download the new iFaith…

Most of you are probably aware by now that downgrading firmware in iOS 5 is nearly impossible. Apple has started signing SHSH blobs differently in iOS 5 than it did in previous versions, disabling users from replaying them during a firmware restore.

But iFaith doesn’t just save your SHSH blobs, it also saves the accompanying AP ticket, making downgrading theoretically possible (to a custom IPSW). Watch:

iFaith’s update also brings about some major bug fixes, and iH8sn0w says that blob-dumping is now much faster. If you happen to fit the criteria for the software, we strongly suggest downloading it. You can grab the new iFaith from our Downloads page.

  • The only problem is those that need this program the most are A5 device users. Yet, there’s no support for it πŸ™

    • There’s really no difference. A 3GS user needs the SHSH as much as a 4S user.

      I think it only supports a custom firmware of iOS 5.0 πŸ™

    so does this mean if i jailbreak my AT&T iphone 4 while being on 5.0 and decide to remove the jailbreak
    ( for instance to add new music, pics ,videos, apps, etc…) and making sure not to restore & update to 5.0.1 while staying on 5.0? is it possible with iFaith?
    if anyone can help i would appreciate it so much, thanks πŸ™‚

    • You can restore back to a costum iOS 5 .. As for adding music ,pics etc etc you can do that if jailbroke ..

      • Theoretically ..that is ..As it says in the post..For downgrade or restore back to iOS 5/iOS 5.0.1

    Has anyone tried restoring to 5.0? I am curious to see if it really works, The first iFaith that came out, needed many tune ups.lol

  • I am assuming that iFaith is unable to grab SHSH blobs/AP ticket for the firmwares that are no longer being singed. Is it able to do this if the firmware in question resides on the device?

    I Managed To Downgrade To 4.3.3 But Now My Phone Is Stuck With No Signal… I’m Assuming It’s From Having The iOS 5 Firmware… Does Anyone Have A Solution??? My Phone Now Won’t Let Me Upgrade Back To iOS 5 Either…
