[How To] Save SHSH Blobs Directly From iPhone, iPad, iPod touch Using iSHSHit
iSHSHit is a new app recently released on Cydia that is an alternative to the popular SHSH backup utility, TinyUmbrella. The upside is it lets you save and backup SHSH blobs directly off your iOS device. It also have the original functionality of being able to send your saved SHSH blobs via email, which is a very handy feature. It also automatically uses the Cydia On-File service, meaning that your SHSH blobs will also be saved on the Cydia servers.
What’s even more cool is that iSHSHit is a very straight forward and simple to use. After installing it from Cydia, just click on the save icon at the top right corner and wait for it to save your SHSH blobs to Cydia. Once your SHSH blobs has been saved, you will get a message similar to the one you can see in the pictures below:
For those of you who don’t already know, saving SHSH blobs have proved to be very useful for downgrading back to older firmwares. Recent tweets from Comex suggest that they will also be required for untethered jailbreaks in the future.
iSHSHit allows you to back up device firmware SHSH blobs from Apple directly on your device for later downgrading. It automatically uses the Cydia On File service in the background, so it’s a great way to ensure that your SHSH is stored by Cydia. iSHSHit can also email your SHSH blobs to you for more permanent storage.
To install it, you will need to have a jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch of course. If you don’t already, follow our step-by-step guide posted here to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch with Redsn0w on iOS 4.2.1 or with Limera1n on iOS 4.1.
iSHSHit is available now from Cydia under the BigBoss repository for free.
