Apple Is Getting Quicker At Closing SHSH Signing Windows, A Reminder To Save Your iOS 6.1 SHSH Blobs

As I mentioned in the previous article about TinyUmbrella being updated, saving your SHSH blobs is becoming less and less important as time goes on. This is partially due to Apple introducing APTickets and closing a lot of loopholes in its firmware restoration and update process. For newer devices it is pretty much impossible to downgrade your device, and as such saving SHSH blobs is really only useful for A4 devices. In the future however, a new exploit might be found that once again allows for downgrading, so saving your SHSH blobs and APTickets could prove to be useful (emphasis on the “could”).

iH8Snow has tweeted moments ago that Apple has closed the iOS 6.0.x SHSH blob signing window just hours after the release of iOS 6.1. As iH8Sn0w points out, Apple is getting quicker and quicker at closing the signing window, so if you want to save SHSH blobs still it is recommended you do it right after you update your device to the latest firmware version… * cough * cough * iOS 6.1. Even though the usefulness of saving your SHSH blobs might be at a lower level at this current time you don’t want to be unprepared in case a future Jailbreak requires them or a new downgrading method is discovered.

Apple Closes iOS 6.0.x SHSH Signing Window

With TinyUmbrella being updated to version 6.10.00 you can actually save your iOS 6.1 SHSH blobs right now! If you don’t know how to save your SHSH blobs / AP Tickets and would like to learn more make sure you visit our dedicated page.

    01/28/2013 20:34:02.250 APPLE is NOT
    signing iPhone5_World 6.0.2 (10A525) SHSH requests anymore. All you can do
    now is select CYDIA and hope that CYDIA has your SHSH saved. If not, there
    is nothing you can do.

    I think the window closed for 6.1 already…says here im unable to grab my blob for 6.1 using tinyumbrella 6.10.02 is it because im on 5.1.1? I know in the past i was on 5.1.1 on my 4S and it somehow saved my blobs for 6.0 and 6.0.1 when i was never on it somehow cydia saved it

  • Njay

    Its still saves shsh blobs, just did it for all my devices iphone 5 4s ipad 2 ipad 3

  • Aazhmandius

    I saved both my blobs for my iPad 4 and Apple TV 3 using TU 6.10.02 locally. I then used redsnow to submit them to Cydia, which works fine. But when I go to query the Cydia server, both devices only show 6.0.1. Is that right?
