  • Jailbreak Utility TinyUmbrella Gets Big Update


    Jailbreak utility TinyUmbrella got a big update today. Version 4.1.9 is now available for Mac OS X, Linux and Windows. TinyUmbrella is a staple tool in the Jailbreak community. With the ability to save SHSH blobs, TinyUmbrella allows jailbreakers the ability to downgrade to a previous iOS version if necessary. This can be useful when users want to jailbreak their iOS devices, but have upgraded their software to an unsupported version. Users must save their SHSH blobs before upgrading to the latest iOS version, if they want to be able to downgrade later.

    Currently, users looking to unlock their iPhones cannot use TinyUmbrella to do this. According to the TinyUmbrella blog:

    “DO NOT USE TINYUMBRELLA in an attempt to save your baseband. It will not work. The baseband protection is for iPhone 4 *ONLY*.”

    TinyUmbrella now has a totally redesigned interface for all operating systems and new application artwork by iOPK of Dev Team. As a result, the software now has a much cleaner look and feel. Other new features include:
    • Spinny Icon code (thanks to technomage)
    • Quaqua look and feel (sorry mac only due to license restrictions)
    • Now all devices detected by TinyUmbrella are saved for future use!
    • You can remove them as well (Right click -> delete from history)
    • You can save SHSH with known devices as well (No more requirement for the device to be connected)
    • If you connect a device in recovery mode you can still kick it out of recovery (Right click -> Kick out of recovery)
    • Save SHSH now saves ALL SHSHs available at Cydia with one button press!
    • Change SHSH save directory
    • Proxies (Web and Socks) for those that need them!
    • Better port 80 detection.
    TinyUmbrella continues to be one of the best tools available for the jailbreak community. With this update, TinyUmbrella continues to refine the processes of saving useful iPhone SHSH data. People wanting to upgrade to the latest and greatest iOS can do so without fear of not being able to go back, if necessary. Without this ability to downgrade, jailbreaking an iPhone would be a much more hectic endeavor. TinyUmbrella gives people the confidence to jailbreak their iPhone knowing they will be able to turn back the clock if they have to. Wouldn’t it be great if everything were so easy.

      Hi,

      I have a iPhone 4 iOS 4.0.1, baseband 2.10.04. I had bought this phone from someone (So i have nothing to lose here as the unlock is still not out). But i want to upgrade it to iOS4.1 . So if the unlock is out i can unlock it on the latest iOS ?

      Now my question is if I upgrade my phone using iTunes or TinyUmberlla. Will I be asked to activate my iPhone once it is restored, My iPhone 4 is jailbroken.

      Also suggest which jailbreak i should use GreenPoison or Limeara1n, based on who will remove the unlock. Please suggest with your experience.

      Before i update my jailbroken iPhone4 having iOS4.0.1. I want to confirm that after i update my phone with iOS 4.1,using TinyUmbrella, will it Ask me for Activation ? , that is will i be needing a AT&T sim to activate it.

      Please suggest…

      Thanks,
      Hiren.

      Update it with iTunes just like normal. This is because you already have the latest baseband so it won't hurt anything to do it through iTunes. After that, you can run limera1n to jailbreak and activate the phone (greenpois0n may work too, but I have not used it). Then you're all set. Since you're updating to the latest iOS and already hve the most recent baseband, there are a number of steps you can otherwise avoid (TinyUmbrella, etc.).

      Thanks Mortopher for replying.

      By activation u mean, the process that we have to do, by putting a valid AT&T sim in the phone and activating it.(bypassing the 'Slide to emergency screen')

      So limera1n will take care of this. Just want to reconfirm. I am scared to do this as i am and newbie.

      Yeah, limera1n will take care of that issue for you. Pwnage tool does as well, but if you're a newcomer id just keep it simple and use limera1n. (greenpois0n should do it too but I have no direct experience with it so I can't comment)
