TinyUmbrella is a name that all seasoned jailbreakers are familiar with. It is a tool that used to allow you to downgrade your iPhone or iPad iOS version back to a firmware that was no longer being signed by Apple, which meant we could backwards to when we could jailbreak. Although TinyUmbrella is still in use today, it cannot be used to downgrade at the moment because Apple has patched up the loophole that let it work. However, you can still use the tool to Save SHSH Blobs, which are important for downgrading purposes.

Properly installed, when a SHSH Blob is saved by TinyUmbrella it is converted to an IPSW file which is then used to downgrade the device back to an iOS version that can be jailbroken, and it does this by pre-signing the IPSW file. However, as we said, we can’t downgrade with TinyUmbrella at the moment although we are assured by the developer that this is being worked on for a future update. You can, and should, start using the tool to save your SHSH blobs now and make sure that you save them every time you update your iOS firmware version.
