Backup iOS 4.1 SHSH Blobs for iOS 4.2.1 Jailbreak or iOS 4.1 Restore

If you are planning to jailbreak your iPhone or jailbreak your iPod Touch on the latest iOS 4.2 update, you might want to backup your SHSH blobs so that you can restore your iDevice in case something goes wrong or if you want to downgrade your iDevice.

Though a jailbreak for iOS 4.2 is available, it is untethered, so you will have to jailbreak your device when you restart it so backing up your iOS SHSH blobs might be beneficial in the future. Backing up the SHSH blobs is similar to the earlier guide for backing up iOS 4 SHSH blobs.

All you need to do is download Tiny Umbrella from here. Once you download the software just follow the instructions and back up your iOS 4.1. Though a jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 is already  available it is always better to stay on the safer side. Tiny Umbrella is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. The update is a one click process so it should be fairly easy.

Jailbreak iOS 4 on iPhone 3GS And iPod Touch 2G/3G With sn0wbreeze 1.7

iH8sn0w has just released a new version of the Sn0wbreeze jailbreaking application. We had told you yesterday that a new version of the Sn0wbreeze application is expected to be released today. The Sn0wbreeze 1.7ios4_logo application now supports iPhone 3GS based on older as well as newer bootroms, along with iPod Touch 2G (MC and non-MC models) and the iPod Touch 3G.

Sn0wbreeze v1.7 is the first jailbreaking application to support iPhone 3GS based on newer bootroms. However, these newer bootroms based iPhone 3GS must be running on iOS 3.1.2 or must have their iOS 3.1.2 SHSH blobs saved. Without either of these, users will not be able to jailbreak their iPhone 3GS on iOS4.

In addition, this jailbreak will be a tethered one, which means users need to connect their iPhone to a PC, whenever they turn it off, to turn it back on. Readers can find the step-by-step guide to jailbreak their iPhone 3GS here.
