iFaith supports: iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G, iPod touch 3G, iPad and the Apple TV 2G (Devices vulnerable to Limera1n jailbreak exploit). iPad 2 is not supported.

Hi. Can I dump the SHSH blobs of a another iDevice, say iPad, then use it later on with another iDevice? Thanks!

i think you cant, because a SHSH blob is device specific, you cant even use it with other iphone , each iDevice has an Ecid code(hex number) witch is specific to that device..and a SHSH blob does take that Ecid as part of its information..so im my opinion it’s impossible.
