It seems like it’s been forever since we’ve seen a TinyUmbrella update. The SHSH blob-saver has been noticeably absent throughout the summer as Apple has released multiple iOS 6 betas.

But notcom, the utility’s creator, broke the silence this week, announcing that TU has finally been updated to support the new software. It now works with iOS 6 and the latest Apple TV firmware…

From notcom’s blog:

“Sorry for the delay folks… with funerals and travel and changing jobs I’ve had quite the summer. I’ve updated TU for apple tv 5.0.2 (sorry for the wait!) as well as all of the iOS 6 betas.”

Since TinyUmbrella works with the GM version of iOS 6, we’re assuming that it also works with today’s public iOS 6 release. More importantly, it works with iOS 5.1.1. Save your blobs people!

It’s also worth noting that, for you Mac OS X users, the way that TU is packaged has changed. Due to the new Gatekeeper feature in Mountain Lion, TU now comes as a zip file, not an installer.

You can grab the latest version of TinyUmbrella from our Downloads page. Just remember to run it with all of your iOS devices before you update today. iOS 6 has not been jailbroken yet.

    i no longer use tiny umbrella, besides, why use it when you can fetch, submit, query, stitch blobs and downgrade directly with redsn0w. 😀

      Haven’t tired that. Is it easier? I tried I faith and it didn’t work for me

      • Liu Zhenyu

        Much easier man, works with a5 device only though, just select blob and firmware in resn0w and restore like iTunes, watch Jeff’s video

    Just saved the shsh for my jailbroken iPad 3, thanks.

  • If you save your blobs, eill it be like a “backup” too?

  • ic0dex

    Okay I’ll try asking one more time… If I update my iPhone 4S to iOS6 would I be able to downgrade back to iOS 5.1.1 if I have all of my SHSh blobs saved?

  • Gorgonphone

    last ji heard “BLOBS” don’t matter anymore since the new jailbreaks don’t rely on blobs since apples latest ios versions eliminated the hole hat utilized blobs..

    I saved my shsh blog 5.1.1 using ishsit cydia if i update ios 6 and want to come back to ios 5.1.1 .can i downgrade to using Tiny umbrella beacuse i save my shsh blog using ishsit not a tiny umbrella

  • genXhippie

    There you go, thank you.

  • i didnt save my shsh bloobs and now im stuck, what can i do?

    • If you had used Cydia before (if you’re jailbroken, you would have), then you can tick the option “Request SHSH from Cydia” in the advanced tab of TinyUmbrella, and then save your SHSHes. Else, just save the current SHSH.

  • im getting an error code it says “The iPhone “iPhone” could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (11).” what does this mean????? I’m am currently running iOS 6 with SHSH Blobs saved for iOS 5.1.1 and iOS 5.1.1b. Im unsure why it keeps giving me this error message as i am following you instructions to a “T” please advise!

    Sorry if I missed reading something somewhere, but does this version work with iPhone5? I connect my phone and it shows the device but the waiting wheel keeps spinning non stop and I can’t seems to be able to save the SHSH. Many thanks!

      I’m guessing you are on a tethered jailbreak?

  • Hodan Osman

  • Bobby

    Hi could someone send me your 5.1.1 shsh blob file for iphone 4s please? My email is

  • R0tten

    would anyone recommend jailbreaking an iphone 5 with TETHERED *just* so SHSH blobs can be saved so it can be downgraded?

    Is that even worth it? Or can it even be done? Thanks.

  • souganyah
