Making this because every guide I've seen is pretty outdated, and really it ISN'T THAT HARD. You can currently only grab SHSH for: 4.1 (iTouch and iPhone) and 3.2.2 (iPad) using TinyUmbrella. You require Administrator access (in Vista/7 right click and select 'Run as Administrator' Download TinyUmbrella, current version 4.1.2 1) Open TinyUmbrella 2) Connect your iDevice OR type in the Device's ECID (which is unique) 3) Select 'Advanced' and 'Request from Cydia' (Request from Cydia is a good way to see if Cydia has your SHSH on file) 4) Click 'Save My SHSH' to save your SHSH ***IN THE EVENT THAT TINYUMBRELLA CANNOT DETECT YOUR IDEVICE, KEEP IT CONNECTED TO YOUR COMPUTER AND REBOOT THE DEVICE*** WINDOWS XP: <MAIN DRIVE>:\Documents and Settings\<username>\.shsh ex: C:\Documents and Settings\semaphore\.shsh WINDOWS 7: <MAIN DRIVE>:\Users\<username>\.shsh ex: C:\Users\semaphore\.shsh MAC: /Users/<your username>/.shsh ex: /Users/semaphore/.shsh Cydia and TinyUmbrella's capabilities These two applications can save your SHSH blob even if you are not on the firmware that you want the blob for. For example, I am on 4.0 and have never been on 4.0.2. Using TinyUmbrella OR Cydia, I can grab my SHSH sigs for 4.0.2, even though I'm not on it! It works so long as Apple is still signing those firmwares. The Difference between requesting SHSH from Apple and Cydia Requesting SHSH from Cydia allows you to check whether Cydia has saved your SHSH. When you first open Cydia, it should ask you whether you want to 'Make My Life Easier' (i.e. save SHSH for you). So if you request SHSH from Cydia, you can check whether Cydia has your blobs! If you request from Apple, you won't be saving blobs onto Cydia's server, it will only save locally. The Difference between saving locally and on Saurik's server Saving locally means you have your SHSH sig backed up on your computer. TinyUmbrella is able to grab your SHSH sigs from Cydia and save them locally as long as they are on Saurik's server. You should always save SHSH locally just in case the server goes down, because otherwise you won't be able to restore!
