I shared in my previous post that Apple releases the new iOS version, Today suddenly we come to know that Apple releases iOS 6.1.4 for iPhone 5 and before today there were no hot news related to any iOS release on web. New iOS 6.1.4 does not bring so many new features and updates other than audio profile for speakerphone. To read the complete article about iOS 6.1.4 or to download the iOS 6.1.4 click here: “iOS 6.1.4 Download for iPhone 5 with Audio Profile update“.
If you have jailbroken iOS 6.1.2 running device or lower then it is highly recommend to stay away from the new release iOS 6.1.4 because it is a Evasi0n killing program. But if you have iPhone 5 with iOS 6.1.4 or already on iOS 6.1.4 then a new version of TinyUmbrella is release to support the iOS 6.1.4.
TinyUmbrella tool is design to protect iPhone jailbreaks by saving the SHSH blobs, a users can use these saved SHSH blobs for future downgrading. We always suggest saving iOS devices SHSH blobs every time before upgrading to new iOS. Make a separate folder in PC or laptop to keep your iOS device SHSH blobs, backups, downloaded firmwares and other such stuff for future use. When you keep the backup of important tools and software’s then it will save your time from searching and downloading again tools whenever you need.
So TinyUmbrella is SHSH blob saving tool for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users. If you are planning to upgrade idevice to iOS 6.1.4 then must make a backup of SHSH blobs using TinyUmbrella tool. You can download the latest version of TinyUmbrella from the “Here”.
If you do not have any experience of saving SHSH blobs using the TinyUmbrella tool then you can follow our step by step tutorial: “How to save SHSH Blobs on Cydia”. I can hope that this tutorial will surely help you to make SHSH blobs backup for future downgrading.

iOS 6 Installation Pre Requisites For Jailbreakers
As most of you know that Apple is going to release the next iOS version i.e. iOS 6 on forthcoming Apple event on 12 September 2012. The release of iOS 6 along with the iPhone 5 release will be a great event and time of excitement for many of us who want to use the new features in the next generation of iOS. Once released the iOS 6 update will be easy and once you are connected with WiFi you will receive the alert that the new iOS firmware version is available and you can easily upgrade to iOS 6.
Save SHSH Blobs
If you are a jailbreaker or unlocker I would like to give you some suggestions so that you would not face any trouble. First of all you have to wait until you make sure that iOS 6 jailbreak is available in the market because if you are jailbreaker you will not enjoy iOS 6 without jailbreak and you may not be able to downgrade from iOS 6 to the previous version. In order to avoid this situation I suggest all of you to save your shsh blobs for the existing firmware so that if you upgrade to iOS 6 and you want to downgrade iOS 6 back you could do it by using the saved blobs.
Use a suitable Cydia tweak like AppBackup to backup your installed apps which easily you can restore later if you downgrade, restore and rejailbreak your device.
Also whenever you want to upgrade to iOS 6 it is better to do it through iTunes and make a backup of your device and all installed apps. In this way when your device will complete the iOS 6 installation it will ask to restore from existing back up or restore as new device so you can get all your apps, photos, notes and images etc.
How To Save iOS 5.1.1 SHSH Blobs Using TinyUmbrella
Creat a new folder on your desktop named saved blobs.
Download the iOS 5.1.1 Firmware For your Device and save in the above folder
Download TinyUmbrella latest version from our jailbreak software download page
Run the TinyUmbrella your device will be automatically displayed there , go to Advance tab in the middle of the window and uncheck “Request SHSH From Cydia”.
Select the save SHSH directory by clicking …
Select your device from left pane and click Save SHSH, now you can see a new file created for your device in the folder you selected in previous step
Save SHSH Blobs in RedSn0w
The next step we need to do is open the RedSn0w 0.9.14b2 and run it, from the main screen go to Extras => SHSH Blobs => Click Stitch => Click IPSW , Now browse and select the firmware file which you downloaded previously. Now in the lower section click Local to stich a local blob file into the IPSW. Browse and select the blob file which you saved using the TinyUmbrella.
After you have selected the local blob file the shsh blobs saving process will start and after few minutes you will receive a message “Blob Stiching Done”
Now this saved blob can be used to downgrade your iOS from iOS 6 to the iOS 5.1.1 very easily using the RedSn0w 0.9.14b2 or any latest version.
I recommend all of you to go through this process and save shsh blobs because anytime you may come to know the iOS 6 awesome features and you may need to upgrade to iOS 6 and you may forget to save the blobs at that moment.

Read this whole screen carefully before pressing Next. If you are not following the instructions the Next button will remain disabled.
Note: Before clicking next make sure your computer is connected to the internet.

A new version of TinyUmbrella was released to provide some new features for unlockers and jailbreakers. Released by NotCom the developer of TinyUmbrella the new updated version 5.10.12 includes the support for saving BBTicket for iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, and iPhone 4 CDMA.
Although till now most of us are not aware of the usage of this new feature in TinyUmbrella 5.10.12, but I believe that the saving the BBTickets for your iPhone will help in future for some kind of jailbreaking, downgrading or unlocking activities. I am very trustful to our jailbreakers that they will never cheat us and will always provide useful things in future too as before.
As instructed by NotCom if you have an unlocked iPhone or plan to unlock iPhone in future, you should use this new TinyUmbrella version and save your SHSH blobs. Also as mentioned by NotCom you have to ensure that you have checked the overwrite saved SHSH option while saving the SHSH blobs.
I have given below the TinyUmbrella download links:

Few hours ago the famous jailbreaker and hacker iH8sn0w has tweeted and claimed that he has found a loophole in Apple’s apticket system and he has restored iPad 2 to 5.0.1 from iOS 5.1. So it is also assumed that he has found the way to downgrade iOS 5.1 to iOS 5.0.1 on all A5 devices. He also mentions on followup tweets that A5X devices i.e iPad 3 will also be able to work once Apple pushes new firmware for them. This is a good news for people who are willing to find solution for downgrading their A5 and A5X devices i.e. iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and iPad3.
Below are some tweets of iH8sn0w:
Found a loophole in Apple’s apticket system. Restored my iPad 2 to 5.0.1 from 5.1. Works on all A5 devices.
iPhone 4′s can already downgrade by creating a signed IPSW with iFaith or redsn0w.

After release of iOS 5.1 and the new iPad 3 TinyUmbrella was also updated to version 5.10.08 and released both for Windows and Mac users. The TinyUmbrella will help us to save iOS 5.1 SHSH blobs for iPad 3 and the Apple TV 3G including all other devices i.e. iPhone 3gs, iphone 4, iphone 4S, ipad and ipod touch. So if you are planning to try iOS 5.1 and want to keep the option of restoring back to existing/previous version after upgrade you must save your SHSH blobs using TinyUmbrella, the SHSH blobs are used when iTunes sends the restore request to Apple. Similarly if you are having iTunes Error 3194 you can use this new version of tinyumbrella to create custom firmware for your device and use that to restore in iTunes, you will not face the Error 3194.

I received many emails from my blog readers that they have upgraded to iOS 5.1 once it was prompted by the automatic update and now they want to degrade ios 5.1 due to two reasons either they have lost their untethered 5.0.1 jailbreak or they want to get untethered jailbreak on ios 5.0.1 or 5.0 since only tethered jailbreak is available for ios 5.1 till now. Also some of them has upgraded on iPhone 4S and iPad 2 which can not be even jailbroken tethered.
The day ios 5.1 was released I informed my blog readers to not upgrade to new ios 5.1 since it does not have jailbreak and also I recommended to save your SHSH blobs so that you can degrade to previous ios version if upgraded to 5.1 due to any reason.
Below I have given step wise guide about How to downgrade to previous iOS version on iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad from the iOS 5.1 firmware to the iOS 5.0.1 or iOS 5.0. firmware.
Please Note: You can downgrade on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1G, iPod Touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G, BUT NOT on iPhone 4S and iPad 2. You should have saved the SHSH blobs previously using iFaith or any other tool like TinyUmbrella and you should have saved that file for previous version. We will use the iFaith to save SHSH blobs that runs only on Windows.
Do the following downloads before starting degrade process.
- Click Here to Download iFaith latest version
- Click to Download iOS Firmware File (To which you want to degrade and you have saved SHSH blobs before)
Steps to downgrade From iOS 5.1 to iOS 5.0.1 or iOS 5.0
Step 1: Create Custom Firmware File
- Double click the .exe file to run the iFaith.Click the OK button after reading the warning.
- There are four buttons Click the first one Build *Signed* IPSW w/Blobs
- Next window will ask to browse for the SHSH blobs cache file that you have created during SHSH blobs saving process. (If you have not done SHSH blob saving before sorry you can not degrade)
- On next screen iFaith will ask to browse for the iOS firmware (ios 5.0.1 or ios 5.0 firmware) file which you have downloaded, browse and locate. Alternativly you can directly give command to iFaith so that it can download the firmware file for you.
- Now iFaith will create a custom firmware file for you and save it on your hard disk.
Step 2: Put Your Device in DFU (Direct Firmware Update) Mode
If you know the procedure of putting your device in DFU mode just do it and connect your device to your computer while iTunes is running it will prompt that a device is detected in DFU mode.
You can put your device in DFU mode using iREB utility available in iFaith, go to main menu and click DFU Pwner(iREB) the fourth button in iFaith main Window. Just follow the onscreen instructions to put your device in DFU mode.
Or you can check this post for How to put your iphone, ipod, ipad in DFU mode
Step 3: Restore Using iTunes
itunes will detect your device automatically and show on left pane select your device and you will see Restore button in the middle window of iTUnes.
Now holding the Shift button in Windows or Option/Alt button in Mac click the Restore button. iTunes will ask you the custome firmware file browse and locate the recently created firmware file. The restore process will start and it will take much time and once finished your device will restart normally with degraded iOS version.
If you receive the iTunes error 3194, I recommend to create your custom firmware file using the TinyUmbrella and then try restoring in iTunes the Error 3194 will be rectified. Download TinyUmbrella.

TinyUmbrella is used for saving the SHSH blobs of your iDevices from Apple server to Cydia. If you plan to downgrade your firmware in future you must save your SHSH blobs. This tool is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Apple TV.
The following was mentioned on the official blog of the TinyUmbrella.
“TinyUmbrella just got a small bugfix (hopefully I didn’t introduce even more bugs in this old codebase). There was a nasty UI locking issue when you clicked ‘Save SHSH’. I’ve partially fixed it. But now there’s flicker in the saved shshs window.”
