Just need to confirm about Cydia and SHSH

    I just purchased a used iPad and have done the Greenpois0n jailbreak with no problems on 4.2.1. Upon finally launching Cydia, at the top it shows 'SHSH iOS 3.2.1, 3.2.2, 4.2.1, 4.2b3'. Does this mean the previous owner jailbroke the device at each given software upgrade?

    Not a concern as I'm happy to see this. Just want to make sure I'm interpreting it correctly...

    Yes indeed. Cydia stores and references the UUID of the device from the point it was JB. From the list, it looks like the previous owner JB starting at 3.2.1. It also means that it wasn't necessarily JB on each of the iOS versions between 3.2.1 and 4.2.1.

    Enjoy your iPad.

    To elaborate: once the blob save is initiated, it continues to do so for future versions automatically.

    To my knowledge Cydia will not save the blobs automatically... The blobs are only saved if you signal the save to occur through Tiny Umbrella. That's way a lot of people did not have the Beta SHSH blobs saved. I could be wrong...

    You are wrong. :)

    Cydia has a "Make Your Life Easier" button. If you press that button, SHSH blobs are automatically saved.

    And you can also kick off the automated Cydia process by using TU just once (which can be useful if you ignored the "make my life easier" question originally)...
