A Big thanks to Semaphore for making a wonderful tool that helps millions of jailbreak users to save their shsh blobs to be able to downgrade their devices even when Apple stops signing shsh blobs for old firmwares. Apple to patch jailbreak techniques has adopted a method of signing every device's firmware shsh blobs every time a device is restored. Failure in getting these signatures will not restore a device and throw an iTunes error. With every new firmware release, Apple stops signing shsh blobs for previous firmwares making it impossible to restore older firmwares. These shsh blobs are unique and encrypted signatures for every iOS device and since these are encrypted, Apple alone has the decyption keys which makes it practically impossible to downgrade. Tiney Umbrella saves the shsh blobs from the devices so that it can be restored later. You can save the shsh blobs for the firmware that you are presently on or future firmware updates. You cannot save or get shsh blobs for older firmwares if your device came stocked with a newer one.
