Semaphore has announced an update to TinyUmbrella utility that brings support for new firmwares iOS 6 and iOS 6.0.1, as well support as new devices - iPad mini and the iPad 4. With TU users can save their SHSH keys for firmwares. Later these SHSH keys could be used for iOS downgrades.
I've updated TU to support iOS 6 and 6.0.1. The new iPad mini and iPad 4 are also supported as well as the new iphone 4 stealth revision.
Sorry for the delay folks. I'm still working on some pretty dang well needed changes to TU. The wait will be worth it...
Don't Forget to Save Your iOS 5.1.1 SHSH Blobs to preserve the ability to do iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak in the future. Apple might release updated iOS firmware soon to fix and disable the jailbreak. After next firmware release you will not be able to restore to 5.1.1 any more.
Every time Apple releases a new firmware it stops the ability to restore to an older firmware. If you need to restore to old firmwares you need to save your SHSH keys as soon as possible.
Here are instructions on how to backup your SHSH blobs using TinyUmbrella utility for Mac OS.

iH8sn0w has released new version of popular jailbreak utility Sn0wBreeze 2.9. Sn0wbreeze is used to create a custom firmware with jailbreak and preserve iPhone modem (baseband) version for unlock. New version 2.9 adds support for untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak as well as support for all firmwares supported by previous versions of sn0wbreeze.
For now Sn0wBreeze 2.9 supports untethered jailbreak for iOS 3.1.3, 3.2.x, 4.0.x, 4.1, 4.2.1 - 4.2.8, 4.3 - 4.3.3 and 5.0.1. Supported devices are: iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad 1, iPod Touch 2G, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G.
Good news, Cydia is now saving SHSH blobs/APTickets for iOS 5.0.1 firmware. These blobs will be used in the future for downgrading to iOS 5.0.1. So just run Cydia and it will do all the work.
You can also use RedSn0w, iFaith and TinyUmbrella to save your SHSH blobs and create signed custom firmware.
Pod2g has recently announced that he has successfully performed an untethered jailbreak on an iPhone 4 running iOS 5.0.1.
Got an untethered iPhone 4 running iOS 5.0.1. Feel free to update.
Of course, if you want to SIM unlock, don't update using Apple's original FW nor update OTA.
This means jailbreakers can update to iOS 5.0.1. Previously it was recommended to stay on iOS 5. Unlockers as usual should stay away from Apple's firmwares and from iOS 5.0.1.
We strongly recommend that everyone use TinyUmbrella to save their iOS 5.0.1 SHSH Blobs.
Pod2g writes in his blog, that next devices he will try to untehter jailbreak are iPod 3G, iPod 4G and iPad 1.
MuscleNerd has announced that an upcoming RedSn0w release will make TinyUmbrella and Cydia blob saves useful for iOS 5.0+.
Upcoming redsn0w release makes both TinyUmbrella and Cydia blob saves useful for 5.0+ (1st verifies, then stitches)
For time being, please just use most recent TU to save 5.0.1 blobs+APTicket...redsn0w will do the rest, should you need to restore.
We'll let you know as soon as the update to RedSn0w is available.
MuscleNerd has announced via Twitter that jailbreak utility RedSn0w 0.9.9b1 is released with major update and numerous new features:
Major improvements and features added to redsn0w 0.9.9b1! See update #9 at http://is.gd/6eek4Y Feedback: @redsn0w_testers
Indeed the list of new features is quite high. There are two main ones:
- There is no need to download firmware any more. There is no need to push Browse IPWS button any more (but you still can).
- Developers added lots of functionality to work with SHSH keys (extract, submit, download, verify, stitch etc)
However this new version does not bring features like untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.5 or iOS 5.
Due to some possible bugs we still recommend to use the old RedSn0w 0.9.8b7b, but the new 0.9.9b1 is worth seeing and playing with.
Here are links to our RedSn0w 0.9.8b7b iOS 4.3.5 jailbreak tutorials:
- Mac OS: iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G
- Windows: iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G
You can download RedSn0w 0.9.9b1 here:

Famous iPhone hacker Stefan Esser, also known as i0n1c, recently wrote on twitter that we should not expect untether jailbreak for iOS 4.3.4 anytime soon. i0n1c was the one who created untether for iOS 4.3.3 firmware.
Our advice is simple - save your 4.3.3 SHSH keys asap. With these SHSH keys you will be able to restore to iOS 4.3.3 anytime, without - only iOS 4.3.4. Here are tutorials for you.
Apple today released iOS 4.3.4 to block the recent jailbreak released by comex. Do not update if you want to remain jailbroken.
Apple will soon stop signing iOS 4.3.3 so please save your SHSH blobs as soon as possible. We have step-by-step tutorials for you:
If you want to jailbreak but haven't yet, you can find our instructions on how to jailbreak here.
Comex's jailbreak for the iPad 2 has been stolen from secret website and later published on different sites. The jailbreak uses a PDF exploit similar to how JailbreakMe worked in the past.
User AppReviewerWill even posted a video showing working iPad 2 jailbreak on iOS 4.3. The video is currently unavailable.
This is quite sad, because now Apple is aware of the vulnerability and will probably release the fixed iOS 4.3.4. If now this will be fixed in iOS 5 for sure.
We strongly suggest that you wait for official release by Comex. Now you should just save your SHSH blobs using
Apple does not allow users to install iOS version that is older than the latest released version. There is a workaround for this restriction. Users who have saved SHSH blobs using Cydia or TinyUmbrella for particular iOS version and particular iDevice can restore to this iOS.
It is surprising how good the first beta version of iOS 5 is, but if for any reason you need to go back to iOS 4.3.3, we’ll show you how. There are at least two ways to do that:
Downgrade via XCode (Mac Only + dev license)
This is the easiest way to get back to a previous version of iOS. The bad part is that it can sometimes put you into a never ending DFU loop. You can typically use
1. Download the iOS 4.3.3 here (it is better to use Firefox).
2. Open XCode and from the top select Window and then Organizer.
The iPhone Dev-Team released an update to UltraSn0w that makes it compatible with iOS 4.3.1 for basebands previously unlocked. You can use ultrasn0w if you need carrier unlock and you have compatible baseband, preserved with pwnagetool, sn0wbreeze or tinyumbrella.
Ultrasn0w 1.2.1 supports only the following basebands:
- iPhone 4: 01.59.00
- iPhone 3G/3GS: 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04, 06.15.00.
You can install ultrasn0w via Cydia.
