We told you before about the mysterious project by ih8sn0w named as “WhatIf“, So finally he revealed the project which was coded as “WhatIf” was finally revealed as a new Tool with the name of iFaith.
iFaith the new Tool will allow you to dump SHSH for the current firmware you are on and even Apple has stopped signing the Firmware. In simple words it will save the SHSH of the current firmware you are on.
You buy an iPhone 4 from AT&T or Apple. You go home and open the box and see iPhone 4 is on 4.2.1 and the latest Firmware is iOS 4.3.3 rolling out by Apple. You are in deep shit. Because if you somehow accidentally updated your iPhone 4 to iOS 4.3.3 you will loose the Jailbreak and all the data. Once you updated you got no other option to go back to iOS 4.2.1. You will have to stay with iOS 4.3.3 until it’s PWNED and you will be able to save SHSH only when it is Jailbreaked.
But with this Tool iFaith you will be able to save SHSH for iOS 4.2.1 and then update to iOS 4.3.3 and see how is it or to any current Firmware rolling out by Apple. Mostly people update by mistake and got no other way to come back to that iOS because Apple stops signing that IPSW.
Above is the example for iOS 4.3.3 and iOS 4.2.1.
Below are some Screenshots of the upcoming Tool.
Other than iFaith Cydia and Tiny Umbrella also saves SHSH of your iDevice. But they can only save those SHSH of the Firmware which are currently signed by Apple.
The tool will is available for Windows and for MAC it will come out Soon.
Download For Windows.
Download For MAC OS X.
This will only work on those iDevices which are PWNABLE with Limera1n Exploit. Exclude iPad 2.
