How to Save your SHSH on iOS 6.1

Every time there is a new Jailbreak is preached the same message: save your SHSH!. In fact, even when not done the Jailbreak, it is good practice to have saved our SHSH. These files will be absolutely essential if you want to downgrade to iOS 6.1 when launched new versions. If you do not save for a specific firmware, then the possibility of ever downgrade the firmware will be virtually nil.

So please, save your SHSH now. That way, when Apple released iOS 6.1.1 or whatever the next Apple firmware, and you will have saved. Apple has been pretty quick to close the vulnerabilities of their firmwares in recent times, so once the new firmware is released, it may be too late to save your SHSH of iOS 6.1.

If you have not done yet, you can follow the step by step tutorial we will show you below. It's simple.

Steps to save your SHSH of iOS 6.1

Step 1: Download TinyUmbrella for the version of your operating system. This tutorial was made using a Mac, but the principle is exactly the same on Windows and Linux.

Step 2: Save the downloaded file to your desktop and double click to run the application. It may take several seconds to start.

Step 3: Connect the device you want to save the SHSH. It can be any iOS device like an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. You must do this for all devices with iOS 6.1 that you may have.

Step 4: In the upper left corner of TinyUmbrella, select the connected device.

Step 5: Click on Advanced Settings and disable the following options:

  • Save ALL Available SHSH
  • Request SHSH from Cydia

Step 6: Change the directory of the SHSH saved a folder on your desktop, so you can find, verify and backup your SHSH in a familiar directory.

Step 7: Click on the Log tab to prepare to see the status of the save attempt.

Step 8: It's time to really save SHSH. Click "Save SHSH" and TinyUmbrella will try to save SHSH of iOS 6.1 (or the latest version of firmware that you have installed on your device) in the directory selected in step 6. You should get a message indicating that the operation was successful once they are saved.

Step 9: Open the folder that is created on the desktop in step 6 and check that your device SHSH are there and they are labeled with the correct device name, along with the appropriate firmware.

In the future, when Apple stops signing iOS 6.1, you can use this tutorial to save the firmware that is signed by them at the time. This course is intended only to save the firmware currently signed by Apple, so we will not see how to retrieve a previously saved SHSH.

I recommend you have a backup of all your SHSH of iOS devices in any account in the cloud, such as Dropbox. This way you always know that even if you have a problem with the computer there you have it.
