TinyUmbrella updated with support for new iPad and Apple TV

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…

NotCom posted this brief message to his blog this morning:

“TinyUmbrella now has support for saving 5.1 SHSH for Apple TV 3 and the iPad 3 (all versions). As of now we still cannot restore them but we are working on getting that working from a bunch of angles. I’ll let you know more when I do.”

We generally recommend saving SHSH blobs from every device on every firmware, especially if you’re a jailbreaker. That way if you accidentally upgrade to a non-jailbroken version of iOS, you’ll have a shot at downgrading.

You can grab the new version of TinyUmbrella from our Downloads page for both Mac and Windows.
