    Default Trying to use Tiny Umbrella to save shsh blogs for my current firmware 5.1 on my 3Gs
    I am using the latest Tiny Umbrella release to save blogs for 5.1, my current firmware since I don't want to go to 5.1.1 if I have to restore.

    When I save my blogs, Tiny list the saved blog file as 5.1.1. If that indicates it did not save the 5.1 blog why am I not able to save blogs for 5.1 Is it possible that Tiny is naming the blog 5.1.1 but is really 5.1? When Apple stops signing 5.1, I need to be able to restore this fw without issues.

    Why is this happening?

    Thanks for any input.

    You can't anymore. Apple is not signing that firmware anymore so you can't save the blobs for it

    Thanks Celeron, crap!

    So even if i have backup in itunes that I did today with 5.1, I would not be able to restore from this backup and retain 5.1? Any options available through a custom firmware for 5.1?

    Thanks!!

    no you cannot restore back to 5.1 period, the backup has nothing to do with the 5.1 firmware, it only retains your contacts, music, etc...

    you dont have blobs, you cannot restore

    Thanks 6th day, really appreciate that.

    Do you know if there is a possibility that iFaith will work with 5.1 to extract the blobs from the installed firmware, or at least that is the iFaith claim?

    Thanks

    6th day,
    If I restore my 3gs to original settings, would I then be forced to upgrade from 5.1 to 5.1.1?

    Thanks

    yes that is correct, if you want to restore, you can only go UP, unless you have blobs, then you can go DOWN

    Thanks again, sorta felt that would be the case. Therefore, when there a JB for 5.1 untethered, I'll likely no JB until there is one for 5.1.1 as well just in case.
