If you are not a new iOS device user, or new to the “dark side” , then you know what firmware umbrella and tinytss is. If you don’t here you go:
- Umbrella – The tool simply performs the same challenge request that iTunes does during an iDevice restore. The difference is that it saves the results in a single shsh file. This file will give you the ability, to restore back to a previous firmware indefinitely
- TinyTSS – is a small java app that acts as your very own signature service.When iTunes verifies your restore for your iDevice, it ‘phones home’ to see if you are allowed to restore to the version you are requesting. With TinyTSS + the shsh blob file(s) you obtained with Umbrella, you will be able to restore to the version of those shsh files forever!
- TinyUmbrella – merge the two tools described above
You can now save your iOS 4 SHSH regardless of whether your iOS Device is jailbroken. ( Linux support is there – just buggy ) . Tool tested this with iTunes > 9. (Up to and including 9.2)
- iPod Touch 2 (MC models)
- iPod Touch 3
NOTE: If you have an iPhone 3G you don’t need to save your SHSH.
NOTE: notcom fixed iOS device detection issues with the new release
