A new version of TinyUmbrella, the tool that allows you to take backups of SHSH blobs (ECID SHSH) has just been released to include support for iOS 5 beta 3.

Apple had seeded iOS 5 Beta 3 to developers of iOS Developer program couple of days back.

The backed up SHSH blobs (ECID SHSH) are required if you want to downgrade to previous iOS version as Apple usually stops signing them after a new iOS software update is released.

Semaphore – developer of TinyUmbrella announced the release of the new version on his blog:

Fixed a stupid name encoding bug where folks would see their device name show up like this: “John‚Äôs iPad” instead of “John’s iPad”. It was a stupid oversight on my part. Well it’s fixed now.

Also, 5.0b3 support is included.

You can download the latest version of TinyUmbrealla from this page.

You can checkout our step-by-step guide on how to take a backup of SHSH blobs using Firmware Umbrella for Mac and Windows users.

Note: If you have jailbroken your iOS device then Cydia will automatically store the SHSH blobs (ECID SHSH) when you launch it so you don’t need to use TinyUmbrella to take a backup.
