Sn0wbreeze updated with support for iOS 6.1.2

It's been a busy weekend for jailbreak tool updates. Last night, the evad3rs released a new version of the evasi0n untether package in Cydia, and shortly after that they posted evasi0n 1.5.

Windows users on older iOS devices might be happy to know that iH8sn0w has updated his Sn0wbreeze jailbreak tool as well. It now supports iOS 6.1.2, and features a handful of bug fixes...

Tiny Umbrella Developer Reminds Us to Save Our iOS 5.0.1 Blobs

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...

How to Save iOS 5 SHSH Blobs and Create Custom Firmware to Downgrade iOS 5.x Using iFaith

As we told you yesterday, iFaith — the Windows based tool that allows you to manage SHSH blobs on all devices sans the iPhone 4S — has been updated with the ability to save iOS 5.x blobs, and create custom firmware that you can use to downgrade your iOS 5 device.

It works very similar to RedSn0w's stitching feature, except the big difference here is that it encompasses Apple's APTicket and features iOS 5 compatibility.

Up until now it was impossible to downgrade an iOS 5.x device to a previous version of iOS 5. That's no longer the case, as our video tutorial shows you inside...

iFaith SHSH Tool Receives Major Update

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...

iFaith v1.1 Released

iFaith, the SHSH dumping tool, has received an update and is now available to the public for download.

Up until iFaith came out, if you wanted to restore your device to a previous iOS firmware, the only way to do it was to save the current firmware's SHSH blob using tools such as @notcom's TinyUmbrella or Cydia's 'Make my life easier' function which automatically saved your SHSH blobs to Cydia's server.

If you didn't save the SHSH blob and Apple stopped signing for that iOS then you would not be able to downgrade, as iTunes would stop the process from being completed during the 'Verifying firmware' phase of the restore.

The unique thing with iFaith is that, regardless of what firmware your device is running, iFaith will extract the SHSH blob directly from the device. That way, you'll to be able to restore back to that same firmware in the future, even if Apple is not signing that firmware...

iH8sn0w Announces iFaith SHSH Blob Dumping Tool

SHSH blobs, despite the slightly comical name are extremely important in the world of iOS jailbreaking. See, the problem with jailbreaking iOS devices is every once in a while you might need to revert to an old firmware version, something Apple isn't too keen on.

When attempting to flash an iDevice with a firmware other than the most current one, iTunes will contact Apple's servers for authentication and because your version of iOS is older than the one currently installed, the server refuses.

Luckily this can be gotten around as with so many things in tech - and this is where SHSH blobs come in, along with a new tool by hacking friend iH8sn0w called iFaith...
