Thread: IOS 7 blobs
09-30-2013, 12:45 AM #1IOS 7 blobs
Guys, anyone know if Cydia is saving iOS 7 SHSH blobs? TSS centre isn't showing them for the iPhone 4 on 5.1.1 yet, only lists up to 6.1.3. Any idea?

there are no more shsh blobs starting with iOS 7.....it is solely based on Aptickets
there is currently no way to save the Aptickets neither until further news from the developers, i.e. ih8sn0w, musclenerd, etc

Seems like apple are stepping up their game to prevent roll back of firmware....
Thanks for the info. Didn't know that...

I can only speak for devices that had iOS 6 builds for them (i.e., everything except the 5c/5s). However, since Apple's server still returns valid responses for iOS 7 and those board configurations, I imagine they use SHSH blobs as well...
iOS 7 only has two blobs (LLB and iBSS) per firmware, plus the APTicket (the iPhone 4 has three: LLB, iBSS, iBEC plus APTicket). These blobs can never be removed, as the various devices' bootroms require a valid SHSH blob in the first image(s) they load. Later checks can be removed or patched out, but not the first one.

For some reason when I read docmagoo's question, I ignored his mention of iphone 4 even though I read it
you should be able to save iOS 7 blobs with tinyumbrella
just make sure to uncheck "request shsh from cydia" and you should see iOS 7 shsh blobs saved for your device

Just to confirm....I have saved SHSH blobs with TU for ios 7 and 7.0.2 (i4 of course). Not sure what for, dough, but you just never know

Ok. All this is good to know gentleman! So back to my original question will cydia save them automatically? Will zap them over with TU in the AM

Best to use TU to be on the safe side
