Why are some of TinyUmbrella's options disabled?

    I am trying to save my SHSH blobs for the first time, and every tutorial/instructions that I've come upon say that in TinyUmbrella, the option "Set Host to Cydia on Exit" under Advanced MUST be checked. When I went to do this, I noticed that this option is disabled. I searched and cannot find anyone else with this problem. Any ideas? Here is a screenshot:


    Should I still go ahead and save the blobs anyway without the option selected, or is there something seriously wrong?

    Thanks for any help!

    It doesn't need to be checked. Source: been saving and restoring with SHSH blobs for years

    The set host to cydia is mostly for installing firmware Apple is no longer signing.

    With 5.0 Apple changed the way it checks for a valid signature.
    Your host file needs to point to Apple not Cydia.

    Actually the set host to cydia is ONLY used for older firmwares. From 5+ onward the set host to cydia needs to be UNchecked.
