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.

Project iF (iFaith) can be followed on Twitter for new developments and updates on the software. The creator, iH8sn0w, can also be followed on Twitter.

Note that this is not the same as SHSH blobs - since iBSS and iBEC are not on the device, the iBSS and iBEC blobs are unobtainable through this method and therefore you are required to restore through a premade IPSW (requiring a pwned DFU state). As well, the blobs are not (to my knowledge) stored on a server, so make your own backups!

As usual I don't quite get it. So let's say next week iOS 5 was out and your iPhone crashed and you had to upgrade. I thought you were fine cause you could restore to stock firmware that you were jb at say 4.3.3 as long as you had your 4.3.3 SHSH blob saved with Tiny Umbrella. How is this much different??
Thanks in advanced as always

Old stock bought just after an iOS update, that is not jailbroken yet, and no Redsn0w jailbreak for the installed / desired iOS, only sn0wbreeze or PwnageTool, requiring an iTunes connected install which will need the SHSH blob which is no longer signed.
