How to save .shsh2 blobs on A12+ devices

The process for saving .shsh2 blobs on devices with an A12 or higher chip (iPhone XS, XR, iPad Air 3, etc., and newer) is a little more involved than for A11 and lower (iPhone 8, iPhone X, and older). We take you through the updated method needed to save valid blobs on these newer devices.

How to save .shsh2 blobs for the Apple TV

Given the recent news that a jailbreak for tvOS 10.1.1 may be coming after all, we recently advised all Apple TV 4 owners to downgrade from tvOS 10.2 to tvOS 10.1.1 immediately before signing closes.

Hand in hand with the possibility of a jailbreak comes the necessity of saving blobs for your device, which will allow you to upgrade, downgrade, or restore your device at a later date, without worrying about signing windows. This guide will walk you through how to save blobs for your Apple TV.

Last chance to downgrade from iOS 10.3 betas and save blobs for iOS 10.2.1

The signing window for iOS 10.2.1 could close any moment now, what with the upcoming release of iOS 10.3, so this is your last chance to save your blobs for iOS 10.2.1, or to downgrade to it from the iOS 10.3 betas.

iOS 10.2.1 is not currently jailbroken, so at the moment its blobs are not of use, nor is being on that firmware a guarantee of a jailbreak. However, you never know what’ll happen, so act now! Don’t be left out in the cold when signing ends.

Possible downgrade to iOS 10.2 from iOS 10.2.1 for some users

Are you are stuck on iOS 10.2.1 or higher, having missed the iOS 10.2 signing window and therefore the Yalu jailbreak? If so, you may be in luck today, provided you have the correct setup. Early reports have come in that some devices are creating nonce collisions on iOS 10.3 b1, providing an indirect route back to iOS 10.2 through Prometheus.

For this clever workaround to come off, you must have a device which produces collisions, namely the iPhone 5s or (possibly, though not confirmed on iOS 10.3 b1), an iPad Air. If you do, you may be able to downgrade from iOS 10.2.1 to iOS 10.2 and jailbreak, by first downloading and installing iOS 10.3 beta 1, and then downgrading to iOS 10.2 using futurerestore.
