    So, I just got a new phone because my other one got water damaged and it came with 4.0.2 and I want to jailbreak it.

    I ran Tiny Umbrella and it says that it found a SHSH blob even though this is a new phone...I am good to downgrade? Sorry, I'm just a little skeptical.

    TinyUmbrella found the SHSH blobs from your old iPhone. You cannot downgrade your current iPhone without having it's SHSH blobs.

    I'm pretty sure that TU just saved the SHSH blobs from your current 4.0.2.

    Does it say that the blobs are from 4.0.1?

    Look, hook up the new phone to tiny. Attempt to download every firmware version shsh for the iphone 4. See what it can get. Then look at your shsh directory. The ID numbers on the phone files will be different if you have shsh files for multiple iphone 4s.

    I've got five iphones and I can tell the difference between all the files based on phone ID.

    The blob is labeled "1177728355790-iphone4-4.1.shsh"

    I am assuming this is not the correct SHS blob.

    It's for your new iPhone but for iOS 4.1. Not 4.0.1.

    :/

    oh well. it was worth a shot.
    Should I go ahead and upgrade from 4.0.2 to 4.1 or stay where I am for a future jailbreak?

    4.0.2 will not be jailbroken. 4.1 will be the next jailbroken version.

    Since the new jailbreak is a bootom exploit does it matter what software version your on? And if it doesn't don't upgrade if you want to unlock.

    The iPhone Dev-Team will not be releasing tools that are compatible with 4.0.2. In theory 4.0.2 could be jailbroken.

    Have you even bothered with clicking advanced options and trying to download shsh blobs for older firmwares?

    If he just got this iPhone, he will only be able to get 4.1. As Apple isn't signing older ones, and Cydia won't have older ones for the new iPhone.

    Well he won't know until he tries now will he? We don't know the history of that phone.

    There's no need to try. It's all a well known and documented.

    Let's review the facts. He got a brand new iPhone 4 within the past week running iOS 4.0.2. TinyUmbrella shows he has one SHSH blob for iOS 4.1. His new current iPhone has never had a iOS 4.0.1 or 4.0 SHSH blob. Apple is no longer signing 4.0.1 or 4.0.2, only 4.1.

    Now you say he should try to get the 4.0/.1/.2 blobs for his iPhone via TinyUmbrella? It will not work. Because they either never existed or Apple isn't signing them anymore.

    So you are saying Apple gave him a reconditioned iPhone 4 ?

    Not arguing, just trying to understand the point you are making.
