How to Save iOS 5 SHSH Blobs and Create Custom Firmware to Downgrade iOS 5.x Using iFaith [VIDEO]




As we told you yesterday, iFaith — the Windows based tool that allows you to manage SHSH blobs on all devices except the iPhone 4S and iPad 2— has been updated with the ability to save iOS 5.x blobs, and create custom firmware that you can use to downgrade your iOS 5 device.

It works very similar to RedSn0w’s stitching feature, except the big difference here is that it encompasses Apple’s APTicket and features iOS 5 compatibility.

Up until now it was impossible to downgrade an iOS 5.x device to a previous version of iOS 5. That’s no longer the case, as video tutorial shows you inside…



As noted, iFaith is a Windows only tool, so until RedSn0w or some other Mac based software is updated, you will need a Windows box to successfully back up your SHSH blobs for iOS 5 and create a signed IPSW that you can use regardless of whether or not Apple is still signing that particular firmware.

TinyUmbrella has been updated to allow you to save your SHSH blobs, but there’s still the question of APTicket, and there’s still no “stitching” or signing solution for Mac users just yet. We’ll go out on the limb and say there will certainly be a full Mac solution soon.


=========================
How to Save Your iOS 5 SHSH Blobs
=========================


Notes:

Quote:
You must be on Windows. You must have an iDevice (not compatible iPhone 4S and iPad 2 yet) that has iOS 5+ installed. Run iFaith as administrator for best results. You will need your current Firmware available to create the custom IPSW.
Step 1:
Download and run iFaith.

Step 2:
Put Your device into DFU Mode.

Step 3:
Select “Dump SHSH Blobs” click Proceed, Let’s Go!, select No on the Apple TV 2 prompt, and click Start.

Step 4: iFaith will dump your SHSH Blobs and ask you to save them. Save them on your desktop.


=========================
How to Create a Custom Signed IPSW for Future Downgrading
=========================



Step 1:
Run iFaith.

Step 2:
Put Your device into DFU Mode.

Step 3:
Select “Build *signed* IPSW w/ Blobs”.

Step 4:
Browse for your device’s current firmware. You can also download directly from iFaith, but I recommend using the browse feature.

Step 5:
Click Build IPSW.

Step 6:
It will Extract the IPSW and place it on your desktop.

Step 7:
Click Proceed and Click Start (Your device should already be in DFU mode, this will place it into PwnedDFU mode for custom restore using iTunes).

Step 8:
Close iFaith, open iTunes and it should find your device in recovery mode. Hold Shift and click Restore and find your custom firmware. The firmware should be named something like: 0000000000_iFaith_iPhone_4-5.0.1 (9A405)_signed.ipsw.

In this example I created a custom 5.0.1 IPSW file. Since Apple is still signing this firmware, I won’t be able to verify my downgrade until iOS 5.1 is released, and Apple stops signing 5.0.1. Until then, I recommend keeping your custom firmware in a safe place for future pain-proof restores.

If you’re on iOS 5.0, you can test out your downgrade capabilities now since iOS 5.0 is no longer being signed. Just make sure that you select the custom firmware when you do your restore.

Again, this will NOT work on an iPhone 4S since, like the iPad 2, the 4S isn’t limera1n susceptible.

Actually some of us were confused and so was I until someone mentioned iFaith v1.4 is possible to restore signed 5.0 firmware.

You guys can hate if you want but i am stating fact.

If iOS was Microsoft made platform we would have ROMS/Custom Images we could restore to by now.

Why is it so hard for Apple users/Devs to do this? Do we need more Windows devs working on this?

i can't find my file

i followed the directions (except running as an administrator) and I can physically see the file on my desktop. When I click "build signed ipsw w/blobs" and the window opens to find and open the file, it is not in the list. I looked in my documents and my desktop. So, I can see it on my desktop but cannot see it when the program opens my desktop to open the file. I hope I am writing this in a way you understand. So I cannot find the file to build a signed ipsw.

Any suggestions?

Make sure the firmware file extension is .IPSW or the iFaith won't recognize it

When I dumped the shsh, that is how it showed up on my desktop.

Couldn't tell you exactly what I did but somehow I think I built it. Now there is an icon on my desktop that now reads:

0000001A65102DF4_Ifaith_Iphone_3GS-5.0.1_(9A405)_signed

Will that be sufficient or does this still read wrong?

If yes then put your iphone in pwned DFU mode (GOOGLE IT) and in itunes SHIFT+RESTORE


Point to 0000001A65102DF4_Ifaith_Iphone_3GS-5.0.1_(9A405)_signed and then let itunes do everything

Yes the icon looks like that. Somehow itunes wanted to restore my phone and I think I hit the wrong file and restored it to factory settings. I lost my jailbreak. I used snowbreeze to jailbreak it. I am hit shift restore again and chose
snowbreeze_iphone3gs5.0.1 to get my jailbreak back.

It gets to the point of asking me to set up my iphone and gives the option of set as a new phone or restore from back up. I don't know which one to chose. I tried restoring from back up but each one gives me the message that an error occurred.

Help please!
