  • 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'll admit I've had problems with saurik's server too (when restoring back to 3.1.3 a couple months back). What error are you getting?
      In that case it's best to try the restore locally with tinytss, like you're doing.

      Well like I said I wasn't sure if doing the update in store would be something they MADE them do because of the update....

      But anyway .....

      Went n got 3 32gs ... The store just got them in 1 hr before I got mine. The AT&T peeps DO NOT UPDATE in store they just ACTIVATE so I would say if anyone gets there new phone in the next few days they should be ok but idunno for sure I dont work there... This is just what happen for me so It maybe just luck . I got all 3 phones on 4.0.1 and they have now been jailbroken and shsh blobs are saved :-) :-) :-p :-p

      When you say try to restore locally with tinytss, in Windows is the process to start unbrella the start tinytss and choose by ecid and which version you want then put phone into duf mode the do a shift restore with your host file at 127.0.0.1 local hosts or 127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com ?

      The readme is VERY vague in some parts!

      Thanks for any help!

      That's the way the AT&T agent did mine! When I got my 3gs the agent told me to remove my sim from my old phone and she just installed it the Iphone 3gs and then just activated it! She didn't do any updating as they have to many customers waiting to go through all that!

      As far as my Iphone 4 I ordered it from Apple because AT&T's computer servers had a meltdown!

      When I got it and turned it on it had the emergency call with connect to ituned in the background! I connected the iphone 4 to computer and itunes open, can't remembered what it said but when itunes was through my Iphone 4 was activated and I did not input anything itunes did everything!

      You shouldnt need to have umbrella running to use tinyTSS, but in any case you need to route gs.apple.com to 127.0.0.1 in hosts.
      After that, put your phone into DFU mode and restore like you said.

      Really sherlock? What if I came into your home and hacked your computer? Would you just sit there crying or find ways of preventing me from doing it again ASAP?

      Can anyone please send a screen shot of the update window and what is NEW in this update as it is still telling me my OS is the latest & I'm on 4.0.1 here!
      It's strange as even on the apple site it is still showing the latest to be 4.0.1...

      Many thanks all...

      My thoughts exactly, that fix should be top priority yet nothing is being done

      Well I think I have a fix for this finally. I am going on a hunger strike until its fixed, I figure in about 4 weeks, I will have lost most of the muscle mass and any fatty tissue in my cheeks, there for there will be no way my face can hit a button on my iPhone.

      Saurik's PDF Patch has just been released on Cydia. It should show up under your "Changes" or just type "PDF Patch" under search.

      It automatically removes PDF Loading Warner when u install the patch.

      Good idea , guess I'll order one from the online store ( can't stand the retail) and put it on the shelf. Then when jailbreak is near activate it.
