    Default Need simple answer to a simple question
    I just purchased an Iphone 3GS on OS 4.0 5.13.04. I don't have backed up SHSH. Can I jailbreak and unlock this phone at this time? If yes, please point me in direction of how to do that. If NO, is there a hope for the nearest future? I am sorry if this question was asked somewhere else and I apreciate someone's prompt response.

    As of now no sorry i've been stuck trying to do it just waiting for an jailbreak for it. Hopefully there will be an jailbreak soon.

    I guess while I am waiting for a jailbreak, it would be a good idea to backup SHSH? I don't exactly understand what that SHSH stands for, but I think it has something to do with a firmware version. Kind of like a MAC address on each network device. Each device has a unic MAC address, kind of like each Iphone has a unic SHSH? Would this be an acurate comparison? Where can I find, easy to follow steps, on how to back this up?

    I dont think its possible to back up your SHSH files without a jailbreak on your phone. Cydia backs up the SHSH blobs. TinyUmbrella does so as well on the computer, but one of the requirements is to have a jailbroken phone.

    Edit: I made a mistake. I think you can save them with TinyUmbrella.

    And

    To show you how.

    To back up your SHSH blobs use this site.
    The Firmware Umbrella

    You do not need to be JB.
