TinyUmbrella, the famous SHSH blobs saving tool for both Windows and Mac has now been updated to version 5.00.07. This new update however is much bigger than just support for saving SHSH blobs of the recently released iOS 4.3.5. TinyUmbrella v5.00.07 also allows you to upgrade iPhone 4 baseband when you want to.
Cydia also saves SHSH blobs of iOS firmware, however TinyUmbrella makes the process of grabbing SHSH blobs much faster, along with the fact that the SHSH blobs are saved on your computer.
Notcom, the developer of TinyUmbrella says:
I’ll probably regret this but this newest version of TU (5.00.07) will allow you to choose whether or not to update your iPhone 4′s baseband.
Please do keep in mind the iPhone 4 baseband upgrade through the latest TinyUmbrella is going to be optional. By default, the Update iPhone 4 Baseband setting is never going to be checked. Whenever you want to use this functionality, you will always have to manually check it in TinyUmbrella.
We reckon that you would know the implications of upgrading iPhone 4 baseband. If you upgrade your iPhone 4 to higher unlockable basebands, you will lose cellular services on your iPhone 4 IF it is software unlocked. Word of advice for software unlocked iPhone 4 users is that you do not try messing with the baseband update option until and unless you are absolutely sure of what you are doing.
Apart from releasing TinyUmbrella 5.00.07 that allows iOS 4.3.5 SHSH blobs saving and update of iPhone 4 baseband, the developer has posted stern guidelines that one must look at before actually playing with TinyUmbrella’s latest update.
- Before you update iPhone 4 baseband, make sure that the version you are restoring to and the latest iOS version Apple is signing both have the same baseband. If they don’t, you’ll just get a 10xx error and the baseband update will not be completed, you’ll also have to use fixrecovery. Keep in mind that this will only work on iPhone 4, not on the 3G iPad 2.
- Don’t play around with the Update iPhone 4 Baseband setting if you do not know what it can do to your iPhone 4. Stay far away from it, particularly if you are using a software unlocked iPhone 4.
