TinyUmbrella Updated to Add Support For iOS 5.1.1


notcom a.k.a semaphore has released a new version of TinyUmbrella (5.11.00b) that allows iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users to save SHSH blobs for iOS 5.1.1, that was released by Apple earlier in the week.

TinyUmbrella allows you to take backups of SHSH blobs (ECID SHSH) that can be used to downgrade to older iOS versions even after Apple stops signing the iOS firmware file. It can come in handy if you end up accidentally upgrading to the latest version of iOS.

Until yesterday, it was possible to downgrade only iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad 1, iPod touch 4G and iPod touch 3G from iOS 5.1 to iOS 5.0.1 using the SHSH blobs saved using TinyUmbrella. But iPhone Dev team released a new version of Redns0w yesterday that also allows users to downgrade their iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and iPad 3.

It’s very simple to save SHSH blobs. All you need to do is follow these steps:

  • Update: Download the latest version of TinyUmbrella from here
  • Connect your iOS device to the computer
  • Install and then launch the latest version of TinyUmbrella (ensure it says v5.11.00 in the title)
  • Select your iOS device from the “Connected Devices” list
  • Then click on the “Save SHSH” button.

After the SHSH blobs are successfully saved, you should see your iOS device listed along with the iOS version that it is running on currently under the General section, which says Saved SHSHs.

Please note that your iOS device doesn’t need to be on iOS 5.1.1 to save SHSH blobs for iOS 5.1.1, so don’t waste any time and save the SHSH blobs for iOS 5.1.1. It also looks like Apple is still signing iOS 5.1 so you will be able to save SHSH blobs for iOS 5.1 as well, in case you haven’t save them already.

    guys i have a slight issue my 4S sleep button is stuck im gonna go for replacement but im running 5.0.1 JB but those bastards they gonna give me 5.1.1 as a replacement im sure
    is there any way that i can save SSH blobs from my 4S and than Downgrade the new phone ??? Thanks alot

    • Aiden

      SHSH are specific to the phone so no blobs will work on your new one. Just hope it’s on 5.0.1

  • help

    I am currently on iOS 5.1 iPad3 if you will and trying to save blobs for either 5.1 or 5.1.1 and it (TinyUmbrella latest version) keeps telling me;


    • Uncheck “Request SHSH from Cydia” option under the Advanced tab and click the “Save SHSH” button again. You should now be able to save the SHSH blobs for iOS 5.1.1 (and iOS 5.1 until Apple keeps signing it).

      It is expected behavior as Cydia doesn’t have the SHSH blobs as you haven’t jailbroken your iPad 3 yet, which means you haven’t launched Cydia for it to save the SHSH blobs on its servers.

          Thanks it works !!! 🙂

    • mp01juve

      You can use Cydia with ipad3 5.1? I thought the device had to be jailbroken already for that

  • Keith

    If I’m understanding this correctly, I should be able to use this and save the blobs then downgrade to 5.0.1 and jb my phone even though I have never jb’ed my phone before? Is this correct?

    • Kimk69

      Yeah, if you have the blobs from 5.0.1 saved which expired a while ago. No way to save 5.0.1 now, only 5.1 & 5.1.1
      If you do have 5.0.1 saved then you can downgrade with the new redsnow and jailbreak but something is telling me your mixed up and don’t have 5.0.1 saved. Good luck.

    When I saved my shsh blobs on tiny umbrella, I was on 5.1 (not jail broken) but when I used 4.3.5 shsh blob to downgrade my 5.1, it work! But when I jail broke 4.3.5, Cydia displayed that I have a 5.1 shsh blob. But I didn’t even jailbreak 5.1 before.

  • Geo

    Hello. I’m trying to save the shsh for my ipad 3 but the device does not appear in the connected device list. I tried on a desktop with Vista 32bit and a laptop with Win 7 64bit. The new iPad is connected to the computer via USB, it opens iTunes, I can sync it, but it does not appear in tinyumbrella. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
