    A Thank You..And SHSH Blog Question

    First off I would like to say thank you to everyone for helping me jailbreak my ipad, wasnt easy for me. lol

    I am very interested in jailbreaking to an Untethered, because I thought the only time i had to boot in "tethered boot" was if i drained the battery to Zero. LOL not the case..Its every time i shut it off/lose power

    Questions:
    1. What is a SHSH Blog?
    2. Do I have to update it?
    3. Is there a difference between IPSW and SHSH?


    Thanks Everyone

    First off, why would you be powering off your iPad on a regular basis? Just put it to sleep.

    (1) SHSH blobs are signatures to verify valid firmware (to Apple, this means the latest version of firmware)
    (2) You don't update the blobs, but you might want to save them. If in the future you decide you want to downgrade to an earlier firmware, you need the saved blobs or else the older firmware will not be seen as valid.
    (3) The IPSW the the actual firmware file that gets loaded into your device. The SHSH blobs are the signature files stating that the firmware file is valid.

    I'm relieved you got there in the end!

    1. SHSH (sometimes called a blob) is a signature hash which Apple generates specifically for your device using its ECID against a specific firmware version. Apple only provides these signatures for the current firmware (4.2.1 at the moment). If you do not have a signature for a firmware you are trying to install the you cannot install it. There is currently no way round this system. So, if you wanted to downgrade to 3.2.2 for example, you MUST have saved your SHSH blob for 3.2.2 either on Cydia or locally on your computer using a program called TinyUmbrella - These solutions DONT generate SHSH's for you. They still have to get them from Apple, its just that they store them so you can use them again in the future if you need to.
    2. You should probably download tinyumbrella (google it) and allow it to start saving your SHSH's locally. Remember at the moment you will ONLY be entitled to 4.2.1.
    3. IPSW is a file containing the FULL firmware (operating system and apple apps) for your device (that's why its > 500MB) - The SHSH is a very small signature, which as I said is used to validate your entitlement to a particular firmware.

    Hope that helps.

    I understand a little more clear now, what if I restore my Ipad and then jailbreak Untethered? Can I do that? with 4.2.1?
