Use TinyUmbrella 6.00.00 To Back Up iOS 6 SHSH Blobs [How to]
A few hours ago I wrote you news that new TinyUmbrella 6.00.00 was launched by Semaphore aka notcom especially for iOS 6 GM including all beta versions and Golden Master. Also, I wrote you that soon I would provide you with a tutorial guide on how to save iOS 6 SHSH blobs using TinyUmbrella 6.00.00. So here I made it for you.
The updated version of TinyUmbrella 6.00.00 was developed not only for iOS 6 but for Apple TV running iOS 5.0.2 too and you can use it for future jailbreak. So if you are looking to jailbreak your device, first download TiniUmbrella 6.00.00 and save SHSH blobs on iOS 6.
It is really important because if you want to update your iPhone to iOS 6 you will need then to back up SHSH blobs for future downgrade to preserve old baseband. Otherwise you won’t be able to downgrade iOS 6, to the old firmware and jailbreak it again.
Few days I wrote a guide on how to downgrade iOS 6 GM to iOS 5.1.1 and there was no need to use TinyUmbrella but for future use you should perform a back up.
So let’s start to follow easy steps and learn how to back up SHSH blobs for iOS 6 downgrade.
Save iOS 6 SHSH blobs Using TinyUmbrella 6.00.00
Step 1. First download TinyUmbrella 6.00.00 for Mac and Windows using direct links.
Step 2. Click on .dmg file twice to mount it.
Step 3. Now just drag TinyUmbrella file from the mounted dmg right into your Applications folder. Only now click TinyUmbrella 6.00.00 twice to start it.
Step 4. In this step you need to type your administrative username and password after which the app will detect the type of gadget and iOS firmware.
Step 5. Now click the Advanced tab in TinyUmbrella Settings and uncheck Set hosts to Cydia on Exit and Request SHSH from Cydia because as we know there is no Cydia after iOS 6 GM jailbreak (or other betas).
Step 6. Now just click Save My SHSH to back up iOS 6 SHSH blobs.
After the process you will see a new entry in the Saved SHSHs for iPhone list. That will be a confirmation of successfully ending the process. The size of the saved file should be 60-65k bytes. If it is so then there are no problems with that.
As I wrote in the Step 5 don’t forget to uncheck Set hosts to Cydia on Exit and Request SHSH from Cydia before SHSH saving because you may have problems with that.
And that’s it. Now you know how to save iOS 6 SHSH blobs so use TinyUmbrella 6.00.00 and share this esentiall info with your friends to help them to successfully downgrade their devices from iOS 6 to lover firmware.
