TinyUmbrella has been updated to 4.02.04 and now NEW FEATURES will be coming to this App in near Future.
Just last week I have written an article on TinyUmbrella and how it has been updated to Version 4.02.04.
It is important to save SHSH Blobs (ECID SHSH) files of your iPhones iOS 4.0.2, iPod Touch Devices and iPad 3.2.2 Devices so you can easily downgrade later on if you ever get in a bind.
Semaphore the Developer behind the TinyUmbrealla utility has announced that he will be updating his Application “TinyUmbrella” will numerous new features in the near future.
Here’s a few of the ideas he is working on for the TinyUmbrella:
● Device History: TinyUmbrella will remember device information of devices that have connected so that saving SHSH’s for those devices in the future no longer requires you to connect the device.
● Save All SHSH’s Available “On-File” at Cydia: TinyUmbrella will now automatically check Cydia for ALL SHSHs for the connected device (or device from history )
● TinyUmbrella will also help you detect what application is running on your computer that is taking up port 80 and will give you the option to kill that application. This should help many of you that don’t know what application may be listening on port 80 (ie. Skype)
● TinyUmbrella will also tell you what firmware versions you can safely downgrade or restore to whenever you connect the device (or select a device from history)
● TinyUmbrella will be sporting a cleaner UI based on some of the great suggestions from @chpwn (a friend and fellow chronic dev team associate)
● Support for PowerPC and more stable runtime for folks having problems running TinyUmbrella for odd and various reasons.
Long term plans for TinyUmbrealla include:
● Activation Support: I’ve started looking into the way the phone requests (and obtains) activation from apple’s servers. I’m confident I can duplicate this process but I have more investigation as the the process is incredibly complicated.
● Full Restore Support without iTunes: I’m looking at implementing my own complete restore mechanism. I have not decided if I’ll directly use @p0sixninja’s libirestore or whether I’ll try to do something that hasn’t been done before… ie in java

As always, I can not stress this fact enough but… If you have your SHSH blobs on file, you can downgrade from a higher iOS back to iOS 4.0.2, 4.0.1 or earlier should you need to.
This version of TinyUmbrella is also compatible with iPad OS 3.2.2 and you can now also save your iPad’s blobs using this software. I do “very strongly” recommend you to save your SHSH blobs because this is the only way identified yet which will allow you to downgrade your iDevice’s software to previous versions.
