Blobs for A5+ Devices
Some people might think that it is not important to save shsh blobs for A5+ devices, but still these can be very useful in future if jailbreakers are successful to find some kind of exploit which will make us able to restore or downgrade the A5+ devices. And of course if we talk about the older devices such as iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, or iPod touch 4G then still saving shsh blobs becomes very useful.

I shared in my previous post that Apple releases the new iOS version, Today suddenly we come to know that Apple releases iOS 6.1.4 for iPhone 5 and before today there were no hot news related to any iOS release on web. New iOS 6.1.4 does not bring so many new features and updates other than audio profile for speakerphone. To read the complete article about iOS 6.1.4 or to download the iOS 6.1.4 click here: “iOS 6.1.4 Download for iPhone 5 with Audio Profile update“.
If you have jailbroken iOS 6.1.2 running device or lower then it is highly recommend to stay away from the new release iOS 6.1.4 because it is a Evasi0n killing program. But if you have iPhone 5 with iOS 6.1.4 or already on iOS 6.1.4 then a new version of TinyUmbrella is release to support the iOS 6.1.4.
TinyUmbrella tool is design to protect iPhone jailbreaks by saving the SHSH blobs, a users can use these saved SHSH blobs for future downgrading. We always suggest saving iOS devices SHSH blobs every time before upgrading to new iOS. Make a separate folder in PC or laptop to keep your iOS device SHSH blobs, backups, downloaded firmwares and other such stuff for future use. When you keep the backup of important tools and software’s then it will save your time from searching and downloading again tools whenever you need.

After reading below article you shall be able to protect your iOS 6.0 or 6.1 untethered jailbreak for future. What does it mean to protect a jailbreak? Well, if you are new to Apple devices you should understand that after some time of releasing new iOS versions Apple stops signing the previous old iOS versions that means if someone is willing to downgrade from a new version to old version he will not be able to do so because when iTunes will contact the Apple server it will not recognize/allow the device hence preventing to downgrade. It means if you upgraded lets say to a new version i.e. iOS 6.1.2 or 7 and now you need a jailbreak there is possibility that jailbreak for that version is not available because Apple also updates the security of its operating systems with new releases to stop jailbreakers to jailbreak.
How To Protect iOS 6.0/6.1 Evasi0n Jailbreak
To solve this issue famous jailbreaker notcom has given us the option of saving the shsh blobs of our devices, by using the saved blobs we can easily downgrade to previous version for which we already saved the shsh blobs, even if Apple has stopped signing that iOS version. So right now it is best time to save your shsh blobs using the famous tool TinyUmbrella. You can check our previous post on how to save shsh blobs using TinyUmbrella. Although once a device is jailbroken the SHSH blobs are saved on Cydia server automatically, but as a precautionary measure you must save them on your computer, in this way you can track the different blobs for different firmware.
On the other hand if you are willing to restore or rejailbreak your device you will need to protect your installed Cydia jailbreak for which you can use many Cydia tweaks i.e. AptBackUp, that store your installed repos and tweaks which you can easily restore by using these tweaks.
Another reason of loosing your evasi0n jailbreak is accidental installation of new version of iOS via OTA, because it is possible that some users see update message and select the option of update hence loosing their jailbreak, to avoid that situation evasi0n is updated to version 1.3 which disables the OTA update message so you will be save at least by not receiving update message form Apple. So if you have jailbroken using evasi0n 1.0 it is recommended to upgrade to evasi0n 1.3 via Cydia.
