iH8Sn0w, the man behind Sn0wBreeze jailbreak, f0rcast tool to know your device, and iREB has come up with another handy utility named AutoSHSH. During the last week we wrote a guide on how to save SHSH on file for iPhone 3.1.3 that process involved many steps to get your hand onto your 3.1.3 SHSH. AutoSHSH has made life easier for all those interested in grabbing SHSH blobs for their devices with a single click.
For those who don’t know what’s this for.. Apple has added a new security system called ECID. ECID stands for Exclusive Chip ID. iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 2G MC and almost every upcoming iDevice is affected by this security. ECID is a unique chip id for all devices.
Once someone updates his iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, and iTouch 2G MC to latest firmware without saving SHSH on file they not only lose their jailbreak but also the ability of downgrading to the older firmware. But if you have ECID SHSH saved for an older firmware, you’ll always be able to restore back to that firmware and then jailbreak your iPhone.
Note: This is important for iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G and iPod Touch 2G (MC) owners who want to jailbreak their devices in the future. iPhone 3G and 2G, iTouch 2G(older) and iTouch 1G users are free of this headache. Using AutoSHSH, you can grab SHSH blobs for both iPhone OS 3.1.3 and iPad OS 3.2.
If you’re interested in iPhone 3.1.3 jailbreak, we have already shared tons of guide on jailbreaking iPhone 3GS, 3G, 2G running iPhone OS 3.1.3 using RedSn0w, Sn0wbreeze and PwnageTool. You can jailbreak iPod Touch using our guides on RedSn0w 0.9.4, Sn0wbreeze and PwnageTool 3.1.5.
