Apple released iOS 7 to the public this week and also its two new iPhones, the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. To go along with iOS 7 and these new iPhone models developer NotCom has released an update for TinyUmbrella that supports saving iOS 7 SHSH blobs of all devices including the iPhone 5s/c.
According to NotCom’s official blog post “I just updated TU for the 4 new iPhone 5* devices. TU supports saving SHSH for iOS 7 and 7.0.1 (for the new devices about to be released). Perhaps eventually we’ll be able to restore to these firmwares using local SHSHs but remember that currently local restores are primarily for older devices (non a5 devices and lower!).”
If you have an A5 device and above running iOS 7 you might as well save your SHSH blobs just to be safe. Why save your SHSH blobs? Well…
I have said this many times, but I am going to repeat myself. Although the usefulness of saving your SHSH blobs is becoming less and less, the possibility that a new exploit could be found to once again re-open downgrading is pretty high. It is better to save your SHSH blobs in case you accidentally update to a new firmware version and a downgrading solution is found requiring them, rather than missing out on the downgrade because you were too lazy to save your SHSH blobs. Furthermore, saving your SHSH blobs allows you to re-restore to the same firmware version you are currently running, when Apple stops signing it.
