The famous hacker of the iOS community, the man behind the most famous jailbreak tool Sn0wBreeze, iH8Sn0w has just released the major update to its tool called iFaith. iFaith allows you save the SHSH blobs of the current iOS version running on your iDevice. iFaith is is different from Tiny Umbrella. So don’t mix iFaith with Tiny Umbrella. To be more clear iFaith saves the current version SHSH blobs, where as Tiny Umbrella saves the SHSH for future Firmwares and the current one both.
If you are a regular reader at FreakGeeks.com, So in past you might have read that you cannot save SHSH blobs for iOS 5.x and the hackers are working to figure out some solution. So after a long time ih8sn0w came up with a solution and updated its tool iFaith to save SHSH blobs for iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1.
The newly launched iFaith supports all the latest versions with almost every older device, except the new devices with A5 processor. Till now iFaith is only for Windows and no luck for MAC OS X users so far. However, if you are one of those who have the A4 device, we recommend you to save the SHSH blobs. If you have kept updating yourself with jailbreak news, you must know, it’s nearly impossible to downgrade the device to older version with the release of iOS 5. Apple has started signing SHSH blobs differently in iOS 5 than it did in previous versions, disabling users from replaying them during a firmware restore.
However, the new iFaith update does not only save your iOS SHSH blobs of the latest devices, instead it also preserves the AP Ticket, which makes the iOS downgrading a little possible with at least custom IPSW option. iH8Sn0w also says the new iFaith update comes up with the couple of major performance tweaks, which performs the iOS SHSH dumping much faster than previous.
