How to save iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1 SHSH Blobs using iFaith v1.4

iFaith v1.4

Apple has already stopped signing iOS 5.0 and that’s why if you have tried saving SHSH blobs of your device running on iOS 5.0 using iSHSHit, you might have received failed report. In that case if you still want to save SHSH blobs of your device to stitch a custom IPSW for future downgrading, iFaith v1.4 has made the way.

iFaith v1.4

Why does iFaith still saves SHSH blobs even if Apple has stopped signing iOS 5?

Unlike iSHSHit, iFaith dumps the SHSH blobs directly from your device running on iOS 5 instead of fetching them from Apple’s server.

Note: iFaith v1.4 works with all the iOS 5 supported devices except iPhone 4S and iPad 2 even on non jailbreaked device. In case if you want to save SHSH blobs, your device must be running on the iOS 5.0 or 5.0.1 firmware.

Devices supported:

  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone 4
  • iPad 1
  • iPod Touch 4G

Let’s start

Step 1: Download iFaith v1.4 and extract it and open “iFaith-v1.4.exe”

Step 2: Once the iFaith window is open, Click on “Dump SHSH Blobs”

Step 3: Click on “Proceed” button followed by “Let’s Go!” button

Step 4: Here you will be asked to put your device into DFU mode. Just follow the instructions on the screen

Step 5: Once your device is in DFU mode, iFaith will start fetching SHSH blobs from your device (this make take few minutes)

iTunes windows might open during this process, close it immediately!

Step 6: After the fetching is done you will be asked to save the SHSH blobs on your directory, choose a safe directory and save them or you can also mail them to yourself.

Step 7: That’s it! Your SHSH blobs are saved.

Once your SHSH blobs are saved you will need to stitch an IPSW with those SHSH blobs.

I am coming with “How to stitch custom IPSW with your saved SHSH blobs” tutorial soon after a few days, so stay tuned.

    Hi Guys, I have just downloaded the upgrade to ios5.1. without reading your comment, not to download! Would that be the cause NOT to be able to hook up and download Whatsapp. ? The device which I am using is ipod 3. Is there a link how to go around it and download WA anyway?

      Yes, that is the main reason if you are following my ‘How to install Whatsapp Messenger’ tutorial, as that tutorial requires jailbreak.

      Now if you have followed this tutorial and saved your iOS 5.0.1 SHSHBlobs you can easily downgrade to iOS 5.0.1, else you’ll have to wait for the 5.1 jailbreak.
