  • TinyUmbrella Updated for iOS 5.1

    The TinyUmbrella utility has been updated to support iOS 5.1.

    Notcom’s TinyUmbrella, the utility used to save your iOS device’s SHSH blobs for future firmware downgrades has been updated to support the recently released iOS 5.1 beta.

    iOS 5.1 beta is the latest iOS firmware seeded to Apple developers. As of right now, there hasn’t been much information about what additions have been made. What we do know is the following: the battery issues persist, support for the iPad on the Sprint Network has been found, and it will expire on January 14th, 2012 (as per a tweet from iH8sn0w).

    It was previously warned that jailbreakers should not update past iOS 5.0 and furthermore, it should be known that there is no way to downgrade as of right now. It still doesn’t hurt to save your iDevice’s SHSH blobs to have them on file just in case...

    From the TinyUmbrella blog:
    Before you ask; Yes a solution for the 5.x firmware nonce is being investigated… None of us have a working solution yet though. Hang tight. I have a couple trails and ideas I am trying out for 4.x baseband based restores to avoid 10xx errors. Until then save your signatures as you will never know when they may come in handy…
    As you probably already know, there is no untethered jailbreak available for the iPhone 4S or iOS 5 but we still recommend that you save your SHSH blobs. You may end up needing the SHSH blobs in the future and at the very least, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

      I would of already done this if I still had my 4 but we can't jailbreak the 4s yet. I feel like apple is really cracking down on this and making it more complicated for the dev's to work their magic. I miss the good ol days lol.
