HOW TO: Use iFaith To Save The Blobs Of An Unsigned iOS and Make A Restorable IPSW [Windows]

iFaith is a nifty little tool by iH8sn0w,  which dumps SHSH blobs for present iOS revision on iDevice and creates a pre-signed IPSW. Back in June when iH8sn0w released iFaith 1.0 we did a small tutorial to show you how to use the tool, but today, we’re posting a new updated tutorial ( courtesy of icj ) that shows you exactly how to use the tool.
