  • 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.

      So if i buy an iphone thats your able to JB then you do and you save the shsh, then when you have to restore it you just download the 4.x.x that you had and click on shift restore so you can pick that old FW, so it really doesnt matter in that way. What i want to know like One1 mentioned above is that if i buy an unjailbreakable device, then will i be able to dump the SHSH and use older firmware that is jailbreakable? and by the way i know i could find the answer online but what is the latest firmware you can JB WITHOUT having any SHSH files saved?

      Thanks in advanced

      Give it time. It will appear to loop over and over and over. Mine took over an hour to complete.

      Just an FYI if you try to build a signed IPSW after dumping the SHSH blobs using this program, you will need to rename your blob file. You must add the ".ifaith" extension in order for the program to see the blob file on your machine.

      Please excuse my lack of intelligence.
      Any phone can be upgraded to the latest FW and JB at the moment so are you saying this is unnecessary? Or am I missing something?

      If you have previusly saved the SHSH blobs yo can upgrade to 4.3.3, but if your phone CAME with 4.3.3 then there is now way to downgrade to 4.2.1 or jailbreak the current 4.3.3 the phone came with.
      Is there any way i can JB a brand new 4.3.3 iphone 4? according to what ive read you dont upgrade your baseband but the phone has the newest baseband available. I need to wait for the 4.3.3 JB right since redsnow is only for previously iphones with old shsh blobs saved?
      Again thanks in advanced.
