    This is what allows Cydia to automatically store your SHSH blobs so you can downgrade if you need to. Definitely a positive thing. Click ALLOW!

    LOL It means exactly what it reads, They want to "saved" your ECID and they are asking you for permission, Cydia use your ECID to save your SHSHs blobs so you don't have to do anything else.

    Why do you say this is badly written?

    Just click agree if you want Cydia to save your hashes for you....

    I'm also missing the part where it's badly written....

    In fact, it answers all of your questions about it.


    Did you even read it?

    So it's not written poorly, you just don't read that "language". Bad post title then!

    The only technical words in it are:
    ECID /which he explains/
    firmware
    software
    server
    jailbreak
    Cydia

    If you don't know the meaning of those words then you are going trough a treacherous & dangerous path everytime you jailbreak :eek::p;)

    This is technobabble:

    What? Apparently you have the reading comprehension of a 6th grader. Anyone could figure out what they means.

    I think a 10 year old can understand that. I mean it is basically a definition...

    This is 100% true, I just called my 10 year old daughter in here and had her read it. While she might not know what cydia and such are, she did understand the concept of what they were trying to do! Im not trying to be mean, but if you dont understand "technobabble" please leave the jailbreaking alone! It will cause you more problems then what its worth!

    Just because you don't understand something doesn't mean that it was badly written. You probably don't understand Shakespeare either, but that doesn't make him a dumbass.

    I think Saurik, very wisely, anticipated this. This is why he put that last line in the message:


    I don't think you can make it any clearer than that.

    Actually I kind of agree with OP. It reads as if your apps will just stop working one day unless you provide Cydia your ECID/SHSH.
    What they wrote is technically accurate, but it leave some wiggle room for misinterpretation. The meaning is not really clear unless you already know what it means. Therefore does not provide new users with appropriate information to make a decision.

    They may as well say: :rolleyes:
