The progress of TinyUmbrella, the tool that will at some point enable for local iOS restores as it did back in its prime time, has been extremely appealing over the past month or so. In the most recent upgrade, its developer has included the capacity to bring SHSH from A7 and A8 devices, indicating that if you’re running, claim, iOS 8.1.2, it will certainly fetch the SHSH balls regardless of the fact that Apple is no much longer signing this specific software.

TinyUmbrella was as soon as the necessary standby tool to any person delving into the world of jailbreaking. Supplying the capacity to save the necessary SHSH apply for each and any firmware version, TU had all the details it demanded to produce an artificial Apple server, which might hence be utilized to downgrade to any firmware that SHSH balls were saved for.


TinyUmbrella, in its old type, was a life-saver, specifically for those which ‘d inadvertently upgraded to a software program version that could not be jailbroken, and after a number of years in the wilderness, its reemergence into the scene has actually been met open arms.

Today’s upgrade is a substantial innovation in the grand plan of points, since it supports the conserving of SHSH blobs for A7 and A8 devices. These consist of the original iPad Air and iPad Air 2; iPad mini 2 and iPad mini 3; iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

If your device does not consist of an A7 or A8 cpu and is not discussed over, then you’ll need to await iH8sn0w to upgrade iFaith for assistance, and you will not, at this point, be able to use TinyUmbrella to retrieve SHSH blobs.

Provided you do fit the bill, you will need to be jailbroken before you can proceed, and also, will have to have AFC2 installed on your device. If you aren’t yet running AFC2, you can do so by firing up Cydia and running a search for “Apple File Conduit 2″.


There is, it would certainly appear, still function to be done prior to TU is shooting on all cylinders, yet the advancement and frequency of the updates in current weeks has actually been greater than little bit remarkable.

Being able to locally restore to older firmware is unbelievably useful, and in the future, will certainly work to the great perk of the jailbreak scene all at once.

So if you have a A7 or A8 device which is on iOS 8.1.2 and jailbroken, you need to totally run TU now and save SHSH blobs. As pointed out earlier, this will work now also though Apple has actually quit signing the firmware, and soon will let you download and install to 8.1.2 in future. A have to for jailbreakers!
