  • iOS 5.0.1 Begins Showing Up In Cydia SHSH List

    As you can see, iOS 5.0.1 has begun appearing in the Cydia SHSH list.

    Something that we had not expected today was for iOS 5.0.1 to start showing itself in the Cydia SHSH list. This is the first appearance of iOS 5 in Cydia's SHSH list to date. It seems that Cydia has begun showing support for the new firmware and while it is still unconfirmed at this point in time - we might be able to start using Cydia's server for downgrading at some point in time. Before today, Cydia stopped caching firmware SHSH blobs at iOS 4.3.5.

    What does this mean? It could mean quite a few things; it could even mean nothing. It could mean that a workaround for downgrading iOS 5 firmwares is being worked on so that we can use Cydia's server for downgrading as iOS 4 always has been able to do. It could mean that Cydia is starting to save newer firmware SHSH blobs for no reason. Whatever the case, it appears to be a tunnel with a bright light up ahead.

    With the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak right around the corner, pod2g handed his data over to the Chronic Dev Team, this could mean that the development teams are also working on a way to save iOS 5 SHSH blobs and APtickets both locally and remotely just like we would see on iOS 4. When on iOS 4, upgrading to a firmware and then jailbreaking it would upload your new SHSH blobs to Cydia and you would see them appear on your Cydia main page.

    At this point in time, we don't have enough information about it. When we hear more, we will be updating you on the news. But for now, be aware that they are up to something over there.

    What do you think iOS 5.0.1 blobs showing up in Cydia might be signaling? Share your thoughts in the comments.

      But we still don't know what it means for us, if our aptickets are saved on saurik's servers or what? So it's useless to us right now until we hear from the man himself.

      I don't get this mentality of expecting that every news release HAS to be earth-shaking. Is every Tweet life-changing, every FB, G+ whatever your social circle consist of relevant all the time? They are informative snippets for those who want or need them. If it's irrelevant to you, pass right along to your topic of interest. Simple.
      On the Cydia note, perhaps we give credit to Saurik who does know what's involved in forward migration infrastructure development and the coders who are working on jailbreaks for the icommunity, without the general public's (us) interference.." are we jailbroke yet?...huh?...". But I digress...

      Since my 4S isn't jailbroken I didn't know about this, few days ago I was using redsn0w to submit my niece's iPhone 4 5.0.1 blobs and it was giving me an error, since I don't have the iPhone 4 here I can't see if it's showing up or not , some people are aware and some others no and that is this website for, if you knew it and this article isn't news for you just skip it.
