    Rumor has it that Apple is going to push 5.1 out on March 9th. If you have not saved your 5.0 or 5.0.1 blobs, better do it soon for all your jb iDevices.

    Just a heads up.

    Sorry, I was under the impression that this was done automatically through Cydia, correct?

    Uhh no. You need to download tinyumbrella on your computer, hook up your phone and save you current setting.

    Sorry to be a noob, but I think I've saved my SHSH via TinyUmbrella. How will I use this for 5.1?

    It will allow you to downgrade if you have to restore which would be 5.1

    If I'm not mistaken, there currently isn't a way to downgrade within iOS 5 but this is just in case they do find a way to do so

    FYI, you currently can't downgrade a 4S, but if you have your blobs and have a 4, you can downgrade. But it's still a good idea to save your blobs on a 4S in case they find a way to downgrade a 4S.

    In order to just JB? Or to be able to downgrade?

    This was my impression as well.:confused::confused::confused:

    Is there a step-by-step tutorial on how to use TinyUmbrella?

    iPhone 4S + Win 7 x64

    Thanks.

    I didn't say it did but he is telling us to save our blobs and if anyone should know what they're doing, wouldn't it be him? Better safe than sorry

    You know that updating will remove the jailbreak right? And then you'll have to wait for them to come out with a jailbreak for 5.1

    Exactly. Do NOT update.

    I'm not trying to be anti-tinyumbrella but now that downgrade is out of the question, I think his software has no value whatsoever... so I'd rather not update than to save my blobs...

    I hope he releases tinyrestore someday

    Not sure you understand how it works. You save your blobs so that if/when you are forced to upgrade to do a restore, you can downgrade back to where you were and have your blobs.

    Yeah exactly. Using tinyumbrella to save your blobs doesn't mean you have to update. I'm certainly not going to. Until there's a JB.
