iH8sn0w has updated his popular SHSH blobs grabber tool iFaith. iFaith 1.4 now allows you to save iOS 5.1 beta, iOS 5.0.1 and iOS 5.0 firmware SHSH blobs of your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Full release notes of iFaith 1.4 for Windows:
- Now dumps iOS 4.4.x (Apple TV 2)/5.0.x apticket + SHSH blobs!
- Dumping is MUCH faster.
- Full Windows XP support.
- Major code improvements.
- Bug fixes.
- DOES NOT SUPPORT A5 DEVICES YET!
Be advised that you will not be able to save SHSH blobs of A5 based devices, meaning that the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 can not be used with iFaith 1.4. You can use TinyUmbrella to save iPad 2 iOS 5.0.x SHSH blobs. Since there's no jailbreak for iPhone 4S as of now, SHSH blobs for it can not be saved. All non-A5 based devices can be used with iFaith 1.4, such as the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G, Apple TV 2G and the original iPad.
Do keep in mind that you will not be able to downgrade from iOS 5.0.1 to iOS 5.0 because Apple has made some changes that no longer allow you to do that. However if you're on iOS 5.0 you can easily downgrade to any previous iOS firmware version provided you have its SHSH blobs saved. iFaith 1.4 will also save iOS 5.0 SHSH blobs if you're running it on your device, a firmware that Apple is not signing anymore. Even if you're not jailbroken, it is advised that you do save iOS 5.0.x SHSH blobs just to be on the safe side if you ever feel like jailbreaking in the future.
Follow our full guide here to learn how to save SHSH blobs using iFaith and downgrade to an older iOS version. The process is exactly the same used for the previous release of iFaith. This tool is only available to Windows users.
