TinyUmbrella update (4.1.13) allows iOS 4.2b3 SHSH blobs to be saved.

Semaphore has updated TinyUmbrella (4.1.13) to allow for the saving of iOS 4.2b3 SHSH blobs for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and the iPad. This is the first time SHSH blobs are being saved for a beta release and the significance is as of yet unknown, but semaphore tweeted that it might be used to assist the untethering of future jailbreaks. Since the release of iOS 4.2 is imminent, iOS 4.2b3 signatures will not be available for long.

You can download TinyUmbrella from the link below to save both iOS 4.1 and iOS 4.2b3 SHSH blobs regardless of what firmware you are currently on and I recommend doing so immediately just in case they are needed down the line...

  • Thanks for clarifying it works regardless of what software you're currently running. I was wondering that and then kept reading :)
    Just did it and it worked fine for me and shows saved for 4.23b and I'm on iphone 4 running 4.1
  • I opened cydia on my iPhone 4 about 3 minutes ago and it said at the top that it had the SHSH for ios 4.2b3 already, and I haven't ran tinyumbrella since I saved my 4.1 SHSH. Is cydia saving them automatically now on their servers?
  • @Pn2bade, it looks like Cydia is saving them, but remember you need TU to save them locally to use them anyway...
  • @Farbod21 you could point your hosts file to Saurik's servers too. It's just good to have a local copy in case the servers are down or something, etc.
  • @JCF22Lyoko I know, I just didn't want to make it harder for people that find the process difficult as is... :)
  • can i copy from saurik's server since it already saving mine since 3.1?
  • I'v backed up my shsh files and I'v an iphone 3GS with 3.0.1 as the software(pretty old). I wish to be on 4.1 software but donot want to loose my unlocking. How do I do that....please help
