Semaphore, the developer of Firmware Umbrella, has released a beta version of Umbrella which brings new features like single button shsh, ecid and device detection plus advanced mode for overrides.
For those who don’t know, Firmware umbrella is a little tool used to save SHSH blobs for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. These SHSH blobs are not used to jailbreak iDevice but secures your device for future jailbreak and let you downgrade to an older firmware which Apple doesn’t allow you once a new firmware is out.
The developer is working to bring a firmware umbrella that saves SHSH blobs with a single click just like autoshsh.When you download and run this beta firmware umbrella, it automatically detects the connected idevice.
There are some requirements in order to get the detection to work.
1. You must have iTunes > 9.0 installed.
2. You must have java jdk 1.5 or higher.
3. For the Windows version you need to be able to run it as administrator because I read the registry for the native library locations.
Once the Device is connected, hit the Save My SHSH button to save SHSH blobs for OS 3.1.3 for iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 3G, OS 3.2 in case of iPad.
That’s it (for most users).
This updated version also features Advanced options. Clicking it brings the old look of the firmware umbrella. If a device is connected, the ECID field will be populated for your convenience. Or if you want to get the SHSH for another device, enter it like you did in the old version.
Please remember this firmware Umbrella version is still in beta and supports Windows and Mac only. Linux version is in works.
If you own an iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, and/or iPad, it’s highly recommended to save SHSH blobs. Follow the guides linked below to Save SHSH Blobs for iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
