  • iFaith: World's First Public SHSH Dumper


    iFaith, originally codenamed Project iF, was released today by iH8sn0w (@iH8sn0w) after his first live demo of the application. An announcement this last Sunday gave information on where to watch for the release of iFaith but it was unknown about what the project consisted of and what its true name was. Today's live stream by iH8sn0w showcased the world's first public SHSH dumper.



    A project that includes previous projects by iH8sn0w, iFaith is the first application to have the ability to dump SHSH blobs onto your physical device. iH8sn0w elaborated in his live stream on how iFaith works and reasons why it will be a useful tool:
    • Because it dumps SHSH physically onto your device, it alleviates issues with having to upgrade to a firmware that is not currently jailbreakable.
    • For example, if you buy another iDevice, it comes with a preloaded iOS version. Even if that version is currently jailbreakable, when Apple updates the firmware to a new version, they not longer need to sign signatures on SHSH blobs for lower versions.
    • This means that you no longer have SHSH retrieval for that particular firmware. If you run into an issue of restore or device corruption, you have to update to the latest firmware and have no way of downgrading. With iFaith, you're now able to place SHSH blobs directly onto your device thus removing an issue of unnecessary iOS upgrading.
    • Programs like TinyUmbrella and Cydia are able to store SHSH blobs but are limited in capabilities. These programs do not allow physical retrieval of SHSH blobs and they only can retrieve SHSH blobs that are currently signed by Apple. For this reason, the SHSH blobs are on a time constraint.



    iFaith is available for the PC (Mac coming soon) and is currently online for user use. The following link is a download link of iFaith for PC.

      After running and rebooting, iTune asks autorization for this computer every single sync! does everyone get the same issue?

      Run the jailbreak software again if it's redsn0w you used. Or ithink tiny umbrella can get you out some way

      I just saved my SHSH blobs but what can that do for me?
      If I'm on 4.3.3 will i be able to downgrade to 4.0 on my iphone 4? If so, why would someone need to downgrade if there's a jailbreak for the latest version?

      i believe what this is for is, if you buy an iphone for instance and it has 4.2.1 on it, and it doesnt have shsh blobs already saved from cydia or tiny umbrella then it impossible to save them before, but with ifaith you can save them by extracting it from the device itself without apple signing it.

      For the slow: Having the ability to get blobs at any time means that people buying phones that are not jailbreakble is a thing of the past. Now if you buy it, It's jailbreakable. Period.
      Not quite true.
      If you buy a phone with a jailbreakable FW you can get the signature files (the already encrypted blobs) for that FW so can always restore that.
      For example, if iOS 4.4 was released and there was no JB but you bought a brand new phone with 4.33 on it and Apple had stopped signing it, without this tool you would be able to JB your device but if you ever had to restore you would be forced to upgrade to 4.4 as umbrella could only get the blobs for FW that Apple are still signing.
      IFaith will let you get the signed blobs off your device for 4.33 so you can restore to that.
      If you bought a second hand phone with 4.21 on it which had never had blobs saved then iFaith will get the signed 4.21 blobs so you can restore to that, in this case you would not be able to restore to any FW between 4.21 and 4.4 as those blobs were never retrieved.
      At least, that is what I believe, I'm sure I will be corrected if I'm wrong.
      This will be a very useful tool for some people congratulations to iH8Sn0w for a great job.

      Was safe for me even though I had a problem.

      It got stuck at Detecting iOS Version / Dumping Blobs and was cycling in a loop without ever actually capturing any blobs. Odd.

      Anyhow I exited by clicking the X on the program without disconnecting the phone, and the program kicked me out of the ramdisk on the iPhone and rebooted it into normal mode automatically. Although it didn't work, no problems here.

      Good tool. iFaith didn't live up to all the hype though and didn't require all this drama for a release.

      Listen Peanut Brain. That's what I said. No phone is unjailbreakable because if you get one on a lower FW you have blobs. (and current fw you already have blobs)
