Save iPhone 4 SHSH Blobs for iOS 4 with TinyUmbrella 4.00.49

TinyUmbrella goes 4.00.49 and can now save SHSH blobs for iPhone 4 running iOS 4.0. Saving iPhone 4 SHSH blobs for iOS 4.0 is important because when an new iOS firmware for iPhone 4 is out, you won’t be able to downgrade to 4.0 unless you have SHSH blobs for iOS 4.

Once you’ve saved SHSH blobs for iPhone 4 firmware 4.0, you’ll be able to downgrade from any newer firmware to 4.0 whenever you like.

You can also save shsh blobs via Cydia by hitting the Make My Life Easier. But for that your device must be jailbroken and there’s no tool to jailbreak iPhone 4 available yet. In such situations the TinyUmbrella is most useful.


  • Apple stops signing firmware SHSH once a new firmware is out. Once Apple has stopped signing firmware SHSH requests for a firmware version there is no way to get your SHSH for that particular version.
  • Device does NOT need to be Jailbroken in order to save SHSH blobs with TinyUmbrella.
  • Your iPhone 4 MUST be connected to the computer to save shsh blobs. For other devices, you can also save SHSH blobs without connecting the device simply by providing ECID.
  • If you desire to restore your iPhone 4 to iOS 4, make sure you uninstall Wi-Fi Sync before trying to do so. I’ve apparently had the same issue a few other folks had.
  • So far restores on the iPhone4 are not perfect. They error out locally but the restore does complete – it just needs to be helped along. (Much like downgrades where the baseband update fails). I’ll try to put the functionality in TinyUmbrella to fix this.
  • Your files are saved in:
    • MAC
      ex: /Users/semaphore/.shsh
      <Main Drive>:\Documents and Settings\\.shsh
      ex: C:\Documents and Settings\semaphore\.shsh
    • WINDOWS 7
      <Main Drive>:\Users\\.shsh
      ex: C:\Users\semaphore\.shsh

make sure you’ve it in your PC.. It’ll appear in cydia later.. you can also hit the “Make My Life Easier” button on Cydia home page to save @ Cydia if you’ve not already done it

Why isnt it working?

because you had not saved SHSH for 4.0 via Cydia when it was being signed by Apple.. Correct?
If u did.. use advanced options..
enter ECID
OS 4.0
location: Cydia

Hi i have a ipod touch 2g MC model, with 4.1 and want to dowgrade to 4.0.1, so i dont have any SHSH blobs, mi question is can i create a SHSH blobs now and then try to downgrade to 4.0.1??

Tenho um iphone 4g ios 4.02. Instalei o tinyumbrella v4.1.5
Qaundo tento fazer o procedimento acima para fazer o downgrade 4.01 e 4.0 ele gera este erro abaixo.


Entao tentei baixar o shsh da versao 4.1 e deu certo.

10/02/2010 21:33:21.129 SHSH SUCCESSFULLY saved! [Click Here to Open] 10/02/2010 21:33:21.139 You have saved your SHSH locally and the request was sent to CYDIA. This means that CYDIA DOES have your SHSH. Do NOT bug semaphore

A minha pergunta é se eu atualizar o iphone para a versao 4.1 depois poderei fazer um downgrade para a versao 4.0.1 já que o shsh ja estara salvo na versao 4.1?
