Apple just released iOS 12 and now it’s time to save your iOS 11.4.1 SHSH2 Blobs. If you want a Jailbreak for iOS 11.4.1 in the feature or simple make a downgrade/upgrade to this version you need to have your SHSH2 Blobs.
Whats the meaning of SHSH2 Blobs?
With saved SHSH2 Blobs it is possible to make a downgrade or an upgrade to the version from which you saved the Blobs. This is even possible when Apple stopped the signing of this firmware! As soon as Apple stops signing a firmware version you cannot simply restore to this version via iTunes any longer. Furthermore there is also no chance to save the certificates of a firmware that is not actively signed by Apple.
The ancestor: SHSH Blobs
There was also a time before the SHSH2 Blobs. Maybe you still know the term SHSH Blobs. You was able to save your SHSH Blobs with tools like TinyUmbrealla or iFaith (those good old memories). Once you saved your SHSH Blobs you was able to create a Custom Firmware and use it within iTunes to restore your device. Is was also possible to save those SHSH certificates but there was no way to make use of them on newer devices.
Why should I still save my SHSH2 Blobs?
Now with the newly release iOS 12 the chance for a new iOS 11.4.1 jailbreak increased. Developers often keep their exploits private and only release them once Apple patched them by itself or the Exploit does not work with a new version of iOS. If a jailbreak for iOS 11.4.1 gets released as soon as (for example) iOS 12.1 drops you want to downgrade your device to iOS 11.4.1. To be able to make a downgrade to this version there must be also a tool that supports this action. Nonetheless is is important that you save your SHSH2 Blobs in advance. We show you know how you can save your SHSH2 Blobs.
