    So one of my parents bought a new 3GS phone from Att. The first thing I did when she brought it home was to check which OS was running (4.3.3) and then I fire up tinny Umbrella. To my surprise, it said 4.1 and 4.3.3 saved :confused:

    I asked my mom, if the phone was a refurbish. and She said no... or at least she though she was buying a new one.

    Has anyone had that happen?

    Sounds like the phone was refurbished. You can't transfer blobs from one phone to another. If you could, we wouldn't have to save blobs in the first place.

    There have been isolated incidents where people seemed to be able to successfully request old SHSH blobs and actually get them. This may be the case for you, since there were a lot of firmwares between 4.1 and 4.3.3, and you would think at least one of those middle firmwares would've saved.

    FYI, for a while cydia was having issues auto-saving blobs. I never did hear what the issue was, but it was around the time of those missing blobs.
