Reminder: Save Your iOS 5.1.1 SHSH Blobs To Preserve Your Untethered Jailbreak

Apple releasing the iOS 5.1.1 Build 9B208 firmware for the (GSM) iPhone 4 was a good reminder to save your SHSH blobs for the iOS 5.1.1 firmware while you still can. It is no doubt Apple will be readily trying to patch the Absinthe 2.0 exploit used to Jailbreak the iOS 5.1.1 firmware Untethered and as such we are sure to expect iOS 5.1.2 in the coming weeks (possibly days).

As such we recommend all those that haven’t already to save your iOS devices SHSH blobs with a tool like TinyUmbrella. I know it is easy to put something like this off, but for the 5-minutes or less it will take you it really is worth your time. It could save you a serious headache in the future, and remember… even the most experienced still slip up every now and again.

Save iOS 5.1.1 SHSH Blobs You can head on over to the iJailbreak Downloads Section and download the latest version of TinyUmbrella for your Windows or Mac OS X computer. For those of you who would like a helping hand saving your SHSH blobs or would like a better explanation of what this is exactly, please head on over to our Saving SHSH Blobs/Downgrading section. You will learn a lot by following/reading through these how to guides (even if they are slightly outdated).

    Yeah….didn’t realize they pushed a new update. I came home tonight to jailbreak, and restored to this. No jailbreak in my future, as I’ve never saved SHSH blobs…Any hopes that Absinthe still works?

    same thing happened to me, now Absinthe won’t work

    i think pod2g will try patching it but not with his secret venurables ,because he is saving them for the next big update of ios (ios 6 supposedly)

    Doesn’t Cydia automatically save SHSH blobs? If you have a jailbreak, your SHSH data’s already safe.
