Semaphore has been on a roll lately, as shown by the release of yet another TinyUmbrella beta build, and this version contains a significant new feature. You now have the ability to save SHSH blobs directly from a local device. This means that if you’re on a jailbreakable firmware like iOS 8.1.2, you can save the 8.1.2 blobs even though Apple is no longer signing that firmware version. Read More
TinyUmbrella, the tool that allows users to save SHSH blobs to be used for potential downgrades, has received another update. As we reported a few weeks ago, TinyUmbrella has made a significant comeback, and its developer, semaphore, is hopeful that downgrades to iOS firmware will be a real thing in the not so distant future.
With this in mind, semaphore is continuing to improve TinyUmbrella, and this latest beta version contains numerous fixes and iterative enhancements. If you still haven’t saved your SHSH blobs, I advise you to stop what you’re doing, download TinyUmbrella, and do so today. Read More
In case you missed our post over the weekend, TinyUmbrella, the popular tool associated with downgrading iOS firmware, is back with a brand new beta version. This is a significant new revelation for the jailbreak community that could have some far-reaching consequences when it comes to establishing potential downgrade options and protecting against Apple’s routine of closing firmware signing windows.
The new TinyUmbrella tool shares a lot in common with its predecessor, but it’s been a long time, and there’s enough differences to warrant a brand new walkthrough and discussion. In this video, I’ll show you how to save your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch SHSH blobs, I’ll talk about what’s new with TinyUmbrella, and I’ll show you some of the things I’ve learned and encountered thus far.

As promised, Semaphore has released a rewrite of his popular TinyUmbrella tool for OS X and Windows. The tool, which has been completely rewritten from the ground up, is currently in beta and requires Java.
Semaphore has alluded to the fact that the new TinyUmbrella may have far-reaching consequences related to downgrading both 32-bit and 64-bit devices. Back in the original TinyUmbrella’s heyday, it was used as a tool to help downgrade to prior versions of iOS. Read More
Earlier today, Apple unexpectedly released a new version of iOS. The update brought the firmware to version 6.1.4, and only included a single item in its change log: an updated audio profile for the iPhone 5.
Folks who are currently jailbroken on iOS 6.1.2 or lower should obviously stay away from the evasi0n-killing software. But for those of you who already updated, there’s a new version of TinyUmbrella out… Read More
Good news jailbreakers. Notcom has finally updated his popular SHSH blob-saver to support iOS 6.1.3. Apple seeded the update to users more than a month ago with a fix for the latest Lock screen security bug and Maps improvements.
Unfortunately, 6.1.3 also killed several of the exploits that the evad3rs were using in evasi0n, effectively killing the iOS 6 jailbreak. But for those of you who upgraded to it, whether by accident or choice, here’s TinyUmbrella version 6.13.00… Read More
In light of Apple releasing iOS 6.1.2 last week, notcom has seeded a new version of his TinyUmbrella app. The popular SHSH blob-saving tool now supports all versions of iOS, excluding 6.1.3, which is still in beta.
That beta, though, is already causing waves in the jailbreak community. Evidence has been found in the firmware that Apple is patching evasi0n‘s exploits, which makes this TinyUmbrella extremely important… Read More
Every time there’s a new jailbreak, the same message is preached: Save your SHSH blobs! In fact, even when there is not a jailbreak, it’s a good practice to always save your SHSH blobs. These files are absolute must haves if there ever opens up the possibility to downgrade back to iOS 6.1 once newer firmware is released. If you don’t save your blobs for a specific firmware, then the possibility of ever being able to downgrade to that firmware is slim to none.
So please, be proactive. Save your SHSH blobs right now. That way, when Apple drops iOS 6.1.1, or whatever its next firmware will be called, you will already have your blobs saved. Apple has been quick about closing its firmware signing window as of late, so once the new firmware is released, it might be too late to save the iOS 6.1 blobs.
If you haven’t already done so, there’s no need to feel ashamed, but act now. Take a look at our easy to follow step-by-step walkthrough inside, and we’ll show you just how simple the process is. Read More
With a new jailbreak impending, it’s nice to see that notcom has updated his SHSH blob-saving utility this afternoon. TinyUmbrella now supports the newly-released iOS 6.1 firmware, as well as iOS 6.0.2.
The developer also says that he is still hard at work on a TU revamp, which will include auto-updating and “much cleaner code.” Read More
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… Read More
The Absinthe 2.0 talk is going on right now at Amsterdam’s Hack In The Box security conference, so that can only mean that the upcoming untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1 is imminent. For this reason, now is a good time to save your SHSH blobs for iOS 5.1.1 while Apple is still signing the firmware.
Check inside for a full tutorial on how to ensure that your SHSH blobs are saved. You may never need them, but it’s much better to be safe than sorry in the event that you do… Read More
As most of you know, Apple released an update to iOS last week, bringing the firmware to 5.1.1. The new software doesn’t contain much more than bug fixes, but if you updated to it, you’ll want to save your SHSH blobs.
Luckily you can do that with the latest version of TinyUmbrella. NotCom has just released TU 5.11.00 with support for the latest version of iOS. And if you haven’t been saving your SHSH blobs, you might want to start… Read More
It’s not even Noon yet here on the west coast and today has already proven to be fairly eventful. Not only did Apple’s new iPad go on sale around the world this morning, but the tablet was jailbroken within hours.
And now we’ve learned that NotCom has just updated TinyUmbrella to version 5.10.08. The new software, which saves your devices’ SHSH Blobs, now includes support for the new Apple TV and yes, the new iPad… Read More
Are you enjoying your newly jailbroken devices as much as we are? If so, you may want to make sure that you have saved your iOS 5.0.1 SHSH blobs. If not, you could risk losing the ability to jailbreak in the future.
It’s been over a month since Apple released iOS 5.1 beta 3, so it wouldn’t surprise us to see a public release sometime in the near future. And from what we’ve heard, the new software will patch the Corona exploit… Read More
TinyUmbrella was recently updated to bring support for the iPhone 4S second iOS 5.0.1 build, but a few Windows users have encountered this issue where the app would just crash on launch.
If you’ve been paying attention to the jailbreak scene lately, then you’ve heard the warnings about preparing for Apple’s next counter move against jailbreakers. The question is this: have you heeded it?
It’s imperative that you update to iOS 5.0.1 now and save your SHSH blobs across all devices, including the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. That way, you can always downgrade to iOS 5.0.1 later, which means you will always have access to an untethered jailbreak.
We’ll show you how to create a firmware file for your A4 devices that can always be jailbroken. We’ll also tell you what to do to preserve the jailbreakability of your A5 devices as well. If you haven’t done this yet, now is the time to act… Read More
TinyUmbrella has been updated with support for saving SHSH blobs on the second build of iOS 5.0.1 that Apple released weeks ago for the iPhone 4S. As you cautioned earlier today, it’s important to update to the latest iOS firmware and save your SHSH blobs for the untethered jailbreak.
When trying to update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to a newer firmware to take advantage of an untethered jailbreak, you might have encountered various problems, such as error message 1013, 1600, 1601, 1602, 1603, 1604, etc. These errors might tell you that your device is not eligible for upgrade, or that it’s not eligible for restore, or even that it isn’t eligible for the requested build.
There are fairly common errors, and thankfully there is an easy fix. All it takes in a few seconds of your time. Read More
