Looking at the pace at which iPad jailbreak is being developed, a tool to jailbreak iPad 3.2 may surface the scene any time now. So, it’s best time to save your SHSH for iPad 3.2 to secure your future jailbreak. We will use AutoSHSH to grab SHSH blobs for iPad 3.2.
Why to Grab SHSH?
For those who don’t know, Apple has introduced a new security for all its new devices named ECID “Exclusive Chip ID”. What this security does is it do not let you downgrade your iPad firmware to an older firmware once a new iPad firmware is out and remember jailbreaking new firmware takes time, you may stuck for a long time with new firmware. However you can downgrade iPad firmware and jailbreak it only if you’ve ECID SHSH saved for the older firmware. The current iPad firmware is 3.2. So, we strongly recommend you to save SHSH for iPad 3.2.
Follow the step by step instructions below to grab your iPad 3.2 SHSH blobs using AutoSHSH.
