We all know how important it is to save your SHSH Blobs to keep the possibility to downgrade your iDevice for Jailbreaking. But for the newbies a small explanation:
Why should I Save iOS 5.1.1 SHSH Blobs?
SHSH stands for Signature HaSH. This is a 128 bit signature used by Apple to keep track of your iDevice and is the key to restoring and upgrading your iDevice. Each time you try to restore or upgrade your iDevice, Apple reads and compares the blobs to verify that you are not downgrading your iDevice. So, if you accidentally upgraded your iDevice to iOS 5.1.1 and you want to go back afterwards and perform a downgrade: That is where TinyUmbrella comes in!
Saving your blobs allows you to downgrade your iDevice to a lower firmware version. Being able to do this can be useful for a lot of reasons, but the most important one being if you accidentally upgrade to a firmware version that cannot be jailbroken. By default, Apple doesn’t allow you to downgrade the firmware.
