Used tinyumbrella, still says pending TSS request on Cydia

    Hi All,

    In a stroke of apparent luck, I just got a new iPhone 4 this morning, and proceeded to backup my SHSH using tinyumbrella right out of the box. This was a few hours before 4.0.2 was released. As soon as I heard the new firmware dropped, I jailbroke and went to cydia. Strangely, it prompted me with the "make my life easier" dialog even though I already used tinyumbrella earlier. I dismiss that and I see "pending TSS request" at the top.

    How can this be? I thought the SHSH was generated by tinyumbrella and sent to cydia to go on file there?

    It takes a while to show up on your phone, maybe several days. As long as the pending request shows, you are good.

    Keep in mind, with new firmware out, Saurik's server has around 2 million hashes for 4.0.2 to retrieve and save.

    The Cyida server(s) probably gets hundreds or thousands of requests a day, and likely is not constantly running them against Apple's servers. Saurik's probably got it set up to do all of them at night during some other window, so it just hasn't got around to yours yet.

    Not that 4.0.2 is out, you may be out of luck if it hasn't already verified and cached your blobs.

    I've heard that, but I don't understand why cydia should have to do *anything* with apple's servers if I already generated the hash and stored it locally. Tinyumbrella already hit Apple's servers and generated the hash, all that's left to be done is transmit that hash to Saurik's server for storage...

    Because I believe saurik's servers don't have the capability to accept hashes from another source, ie you. You can only give Saurik's servers an ECID and it'll start retrieving the blobs itself.

    Also, once you save your hashes the first time, the server requests hashes for your ECID for every subsequent firmware version automatically.

    Simply not true. My iPad pended at 3.2 for several days before it went through, and when it went through it went through for 3.2.1, despite my having initiated the save before 3.2.1 came out (a day before). So TSS pending is NO guarantee of saved SHSH for the firmware you were trying to save the ability to restore to. By this point, it's too late, in my experience.
