TinyUmbrella has been a really useful tool for folks who have used iOS 9 or older. What this tool does is that it allows you to downgrade to an older iOS firmware, thus allowing you to perform a jailbreak again on a jailbreakable version that isn’t being signed any more. Even though it may sound exciting and you may want to try it out right now, the downgrade method does not work any more.

Apple hates jailbreaks, which is why it does not want to give its users an option to downgrade iOS to an older version. After iOS 6, Apple stopped providing SHSH blobs for iOS once a new iOS version was released. Apple basically fixed the loophole that helped to downgrade. So yes, TinyUmbrella doesn’t work any more. Well, it can still save your SHSH blobs, but they won’t be of any use to you until someone finds a hack in iOS to come up with a way to downgrade to older iOS firmwares.

How TinyUmbrella works is really simple. It basically allows you to save your SHSH blobs for currently installed iOS version on your device. Note that it will only save the blobs for the firmware that is still being signed by Apple. These blobs are then used to create an IPSW file that is pre-signed, which means that you could use that file again and again to restore your iOS device to a jailbreakable iOS version. But as mentioned earlier, it does not work now. Users cannot use it to restore to iOS 6.x unless they are using an iPod Touch 4G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, or an iPad 2.

However, you may have heard everyone advising that you should still save the SHSH blobs. That’s because it is highly possible that a downgrade method might be coming soon in the future, and the blobs will become useful again. TinyUmbrella has got updated to work with iOS 9 or lower, and developer Semaphore indicates that downgrading may be possible soon.
