    Hi guys,

    I've been trying to upgrade and jailbreak my brother's iTouch 3rd gen but ended up in the "endless recovery loop" thing and can't exit the DFU mode.
    Anyway, I had the original SHSH blobs stored before doing anything (while the iTouch was running iOS 3.1.3 - the original version it came with). I thought that maybe I could make it work if I could build an IPSW with the SHSH blobs build in, using iFaith. However, iFaith requires the blobs in a ".iFaith" file format, while TinyUmbrella stores it in a different format [in the Root\Users\xxxxxx\.shsh folder (in Windows)]. I can't extract the blobs with iFaith while the iTouch is in DFU mode.
    Is there any way to convert the TinyUmbrella blobs to iFaith???

    Thanks.

    I asked iH8sn0w this a while ago and he said it's not possible.

    Damn! Thanks anyway. :)

    Do you - or anybody else - know whether my blobs will be ok if I do a "genuine" restore through iTunes? (i.e. restore to the current 4.3.4 version of iOS and then try to download the SHSH through iFaith)

    What do you have blobs for and where are you trying to get?

    Update: I managed to upgrade to 4.3.4 and eventually exit the endless DFU loop but the iFaith does NOT support iOS 4.3.4 !!! How silly of me... :/

    I was trying to update an unjailbroken iPod Touch 3G 32Gb running iOS 3.1.3 (the original iOS it came with) to v.4.3.3 and then jailbreak it. When I first run TinyUmbrella, it suggested I save the SHSH blobs and that's what I did (I didn't know about iFaith then). However, I ended up in the endless loop mode and couldn't get out (I used both original and sn0wbreeze-custom IPSWs).

    Why would you want blobs for 4.3.4 anyways?

    And do you have the blobs for 4.3.3 saved in any way? TU, on Cydia, or from iFaith?

    I don't want blobs for 4.3.4 but for 4.3.3 (or any version >4.1 that can be jailbroken). I have the 3.1.3 blobs saved on TU.

    Did you jailbreak it though? Cydia saves them automatically if you are jailbroken.

    Unfortunately not. It had not been jailbroken before. The only blobs I have are the 3.1.3.
