  • 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.

      I have the iPhone 4 and I was getting tired of waiting for the new Pwnage Tool to be released so I could save my baseband so I updated to 4.1 using TinyUmbrella and it worked perfectly! I'm now unlocked with T-Mobile on 4.1 and I couldn't be happier! Thanks!

      This is a staple program for jailbreaking for me. FYI You can use it to kick your iPhone out of recovery also. I've had TinyUmbrella for months now and have a few SHSH files backed up for all my idevices. I really appreciate the effort by developers to put these type of programs out.

      Wait so 4.1.9 Tinyumbrella will save your baseband version??? I'm looking at it right now. And it says "Installed Baseband Version: 02.10.04-ICE_2_8" so that means if I ever restore back to 4.1 again it will also put that baseband in as well? Is that what I am understanding???

      No no no! What it will do, IS IF you're running 4.0.2 or less and want to upgrade your iPHONE 4 (only iphone 4) to 4.1, then it won't upgrade your baseband. What it won't do, is downgrade your baseband. There is no known way to downgrade baseband.

      Yeah, unfortunately (for now) you are stuck at bb 2.10.04. However, from what I've read, there is an unlock in the works that will be released after iOS 4.2 drops next month. When 4.2 comes out you will be able to upgrade to it (and any successive version) using TinyUmbrella and keep your baseband at 2.10.04. Very handy for unlockers and even normal users that just want to keep the resale value as high as possible.

      I found a program (from Russia I think) called "Cyder" that will do exactly that. Google for it.

      So what's the difference between using this and having Cydia do it for you?

      Still not getting what this tool is used for.

      This allows you to save the shsh blobs locally. Comes in handy when Cydia/Saurik's server gets overloaded.

      Also, this app allows you to preserve your iPhone 4 baseband when updating.

      Hi everyone,
      Do you have any idea why TU cannot detect my iP4 v4.0.1 at all? I can see the phone in iTunes though. TU can also detect my iPad v3.2.1. I'm running OS X 10.6.4 and iTunes 9.2.1.
      Cheers

      UPDATE:

      I've found myself stupid
      Finally get TU detected my iPhone 4. The reason it didn't was because I had used the Japanese kanji as my phone's name which TU didn't recognize the characters. After changing my phone's name back to English (romaji), TU successfully detected the iPhone.
      How stupid am I that never thought of it before......
      Cheers
