    Manually Save your SHSH 4.3.1 With Tiny Umbrella Now
    Author: BigBoss // Category: Jailbreak, News

    Urgent action required for anyone that likes jailbreaking 4.3.1 or 4.3.2 and wants to do so in the near future.

    For those of you unaware of the Apple firmware update policy, you can only restore firmware version that Apple approves. When you restore in iTunes, it goes to Apple’s web site and verifies if you are eligible for this specific version. This was solved by Cydia storing your SHSH (the is it ok to restore this version request response from Apple). This has been ok for the last year.

    However, a couple weeks ago, Apple banned the cydia servers from getting shsh’s. Saurik has to reengineer this solution and is doing so. But in the meantime, Apple is still signing 4.3.1. I suggest you grab the updated tiny umbrella v4.30.05 (windows) (OSX) and save your SHSH locally for 4.3.1 on all your devices. For current 4.3.2 SHSH, use the latest tiny umbrella version (same instructions) (Windows) and (OSX).

    To do this, go to advanced, uncheck “request shsh from cydia” and uncheck “set hosts to cydia on exit”. Then restart umbrella, go to show all shsh’s and save them all. In the logs you should see 4.3.1 come down. This will allow you to restore 4.3.1 or 4.3.2 through umbrella’s tss server if you need to.

    Cydia’s SHSH system will hopefully be back up soon. When it is, I will post about it on this site. (Note: your older shsh’s are still safely stored in Cydia and are not lost).

    Alternative to this is to install iSHSHit from Cydia, back up your SHSH and then email it to yourself. From there you can copy it to tinu umbrella’s SHSH folder.

    Many thanks for this. I wondered why Cydia was not automatically saving the SHSH. My last version automatically saved via Cydia was 4.3b1 but downloaded TU and have manually saved 4.3.1 and 4.3.2.

    Ah, thanks. That explains why TU grabbing 4.3.2 via cydia was bombing.

    Glad I wasn't the only one! Grabbed 4.3.1 and 4.3.2 via TU and iSHSHit.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Sucks that they blocked cydia from retrieving everyones blobs.
    Hope they figure out a way around it.

    Cydia was fixed this morning. All should be well. You can always request the shsh via tiny by going directly to apple.

    Cydia's system is working again. Saurik says his server had a problem that keeps it from saving new blobs and it was fixed.

    I always use TU though.

    Fix was announced 40 minutes ago.

    sorry for the confused question

    I'm new to jailbreaking, so I apologize for these questions.

    Does this change from apple mean that anyone with a jailbroken phone running 4.3.1 or 4.3.2 will be unable to restore their phone to factory settings? If you're running a jailbroken 4.3.1, for instance, would apple not allow a phone restore? If so, does this mean jailbreaking is finally risky?

    Is there a way to delete your phone and reinstall factory settings to remove jailbreaking traces that is failsafe?

    Thanks for the help.

    The change just affects how the SHSH blobs were being stored. As long as you have your SHSH blob you can always restore to that firmware version even after Apple releases a new one. What Apple does is that when they have a newer firmware version out (ie 4.3.2) they will stop allowing any installs/restores of 4.3.1. Having the SHSH lets you stay at your current firmware version even if Apple has moved onto a later version.

    To remove jailbreaking you can just restore your phone. If you have the SHSH and your phone is on an older version that Apple doesn't allow anymore, you will be fine. Otherwise you'll just have to restore to the current Apple-approved firmware version.
