    Use TinyUmbrella to run the TSS Server and then try to restore the firmware using iTunes (in DFU mode).

    The blobs are just a signature that says "this firmware is good for this device". Thats why they're small, there's no functionality in the blobs themselves. tss server is used to trick itunes into looking at these saved off signatures instead of going to Apple for one(I think? I dont use TinyUmbrella so I may be wrong on what the tts server does).
