How to Save iOS 6.0.1 SHSH Blobs and Stitch It With Redsn0w

Step 1:  First download TinyUmbrella 6.01.00 for Mac or Windows, then RedSn0w 0.9.15b3 here, as well as official version of iOS 6.0.1 for successful process.

Step 2: Connect your iPhone or any other iDevice to your computer.

Step 3: Run TinyUmbrella and click the Advanced tab. In Save SHSH Directory line specify the way you want to save blobs using “…” button and don’t forget to uncheck Request SHSH from Cydia.

Step 4: Now just click Save SHSH from top to save blobs in the specified location.

Note: You can do this only as long as Apple signs iOS 6.0.1. After the release of the public version of iOS 6.1 the company will make it impossible. If you have already saved SHSH blobs to Cydia, you can download a certificate (blobs) from there.

Step 4: Launch RedSn0w and go to Extras -> SHSH blobs -> Stitch, which allows you to file the 6.0.1 SHSH blobs for the firmware.

Step 5: Now just click IPSW button and select official iOS 6.0.1 firmware file, and click SHSH and select a digital certificate that you created in step 3.

Note: If you will get The blobs could not be verified error on Windows 7 (64-bit), do the following:

  • Close Redsn0w.
  • Open the folder C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Common Files \ Apple \ Apple Application Support.
  • Copy all the files.
  • Put them in the directory C: \ Users \ [username] \ AppData \ Roaming \ redsn0w.

Step 6: Save the custom firmware file in a safe place. Now you can always downgrade any iOS firmware even if Apple stops signing 6.0.1 SHSH blobs.

That’s it now you are save from iOS update because you have just save SHSH blobs of iOS 6.0.1 using latest TinyUmbrella and created custom firmware for the future.

      Nothing will work if you don\’t have SHSH blobs of the firmware you want to downgrade your device. As for Redsn0w support there is one way, you need to download iOS 6 firmware on your computer and when you launch Redsn0w first go to Extras – Select IPSW and point to iOS 6 file and then continue

        Exactly what fixes the TinyUmbrella.exe problem when it says, J_Java_Home error. something like that(i got it very close to what the error looks like, its just in all caps)

        But what you do is follow the instructions above and then the people who have problems with TinyUmbrella will be able to use it. I searched for hours and just couldn't find anything, found this and it worked.
