Sometimes when you try to save SHSH blobs on iPhone using Cydia server, you get problems during restore process. This issue can be resolved if you choose another program for the same task. For example, you might like to save SHSH blobs using iFaith 1.5.5 and I will show you how to do this.

This guide is good not only for iOS 6.1.2 / 6.0 users but soon (with updated iFaith this week you will be able to dump SHSH blobs of iOS 6.1.3 for future downgrade).

Despite the worldwide popularity of Evasi0n tool allowing to jailbreak iOS 6 and iOS 6.1.2, Apple took a decision to terminate the “season of gifts” for fans of iOS hacking. A day ago, the Cupertino company released iOS 6.1.3 update and you download it now. But if you want to keep jailbreak you need to know that iOS 6.1.3 fixed the vulnerability used by Evasi0n, and thus making the tool useless for the new firmware.
