  • iOS Update Imminent? Back Up Your SHSH Blobs Anyway...


    [UPDATE: the rumors were right and iOS 4.0.2/3.2.2 are out there. Jailbreakers DO NOT UPGRADE.]

    Unsubstantiated rumors are flying around the interwebs about iOS 4.0.2 and iOS 3.2.2 updates to be released within hours that will close the PDF hole and root escalation bug that made jailbreakMe possible. No idea if it's true, but we know that Apple claims to have an upgrade in the pipeline, and no less of a personage than the Dev-Team's @cpich3g hints that it's about to drop, so better safe than sorry.

    Obviously, if you're prompted to update firmware, don't do it. But to avoid any possibility of losing your jailbreak and apps, back up your SHSH blobs now if you haven't already done so, before the saving window closes.

      i hate crapple.. i order my iphone 4 the day jailbreakme.com was released and luckily picked it up from the ATT store 3 days before jailbreakme.com was brought down with 4.0.2; i only hope geohot is our ace-in-the-hole and ready to throw down another simple jailbreak for 4.1 the day it comes out. facetime over 3g is an amazing feature; everyone should be able to do it simply!

      ps. tinyumbrella is still working; i just grabbed my shsh's for my iphone4 and old 3gs which i'm planning on selling asap. who would think an shsh blob for 4.0.1 is worth more money than the phone itself?

      I have been waiting on cydia to save my blob for over 4 days for 4.0.1 and it just has sat with a pending tss request.

      okay here is my question. I'm on 4.0.1 Jailbroken. Cydia says that my SHSH are backed up. If I ever wanted to do a shift-restore and manually select 4.0.1 would it work now"?

      I backed-up 10 minutes ago and Cydia already says I'm good for 4.0, 4.01. Guess they're still signing, hurry-up all!

      I read somewhere here on this forum that an i4 user was trying to go to 4.0 from 4.0.1 and he wasn't able to do it even that he had 4.0 shsh blobs. Anyone else here of these downgrade issues on the i4?

      WOW - just got my iP4 yesterday and jailbroke it right away.... snuck in right under the radar....

      My Cydia homepage shows "This device has a pending TSS request" instead of the usual "SHSH Blobs" message I had been used to seeing... I should still be ok, right?

      No you are not OK. Mine, as said above, is doing the same thing. You need to get it saved. Use Umbrella and get it done. RIGHT NOW Apple is still signing 4.0.1, in a couple hours that will not be the case.

      Mine won't arrive for nearly two weeks. It'll have 4.0.2 I'm certain.

      It took mine 7 days to show up in Cydia after I got the pending tss requess!

      I think you will be good to go but umbrella now automaticly saves on your computer when you request it to Cydia!

      Correct me if I am wrong, but since Jailbreaking has been deemed legal, shouldn't it be illegal for Apple to prevent the rooting of its devices?

      Sounds messed up, in my opinion.

      I to would like to know this as I am at 4.0.1 and was wanting to go back to 4.0 as since the jailbreak my Iphone 4 does random rebooting!

      I tried the 3gs way and it did not work so I for one would like to see a new guide on downgrading!

      Sounds like shsh blobs aren't even allowing downgrading. Don't eff up your phone and try to downgrade.

      You have your 3.1.3 SHSH backed up, right? Then no, you don't need to do anything, although I'd suggest you back up the SHSH for 4.0.2 now, because (once 4.0.2 it's jailbroken) if ever you decide to upgrade to 4.0.x, you'll probably want to choose the one version that doesn't have a glaring PDF exploit allowing arbitrary websites to steal your personal information.

      Speaking of which, is there any chance this fix could be ported to 4.0/4.0.1 and made available as a patch on Cydia?
