  • 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.

      On Cydia it says: This device has SHSHs on file for iPhone OS/iOS: 4.0
      Does this mean that my SHSH blobs have been backed up?

      That's how I feel about 4.0.1. My iP4 is finally perfect. The only thing that could make me even think about upgrading is the Proximeter fix.

      Well you can't back them up anymore , the JB for all devices was on the current OS was nice while it lasted, hopefully people won't blindly update.
