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.
