As reported yesterday, Apple released a relatively strange firmware update in the form of iOS 6.1.4. The firmware update is only exclusive for both GSM and CDMA versions of the iPhone 5. The change log of iOS 6.1.4 is fairly uneventful itself as it only contained an updated audio profile for speakerphone. On a related note, Notcom a.k.a semaphore has released a new version of the TinyUmbrella tool to add support for iOS 6.1.4.
For the uninitiated, TinyUmbrella is a tool used for saving SHSH blobs which is essential if you plan to downgrade in the future. It can also be used to kick your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad out of recovery mode with 1-click. And now, those who have updated their iPhone 5 to iOS 6.1.4 can now save their SHSH blobs using TinyUmbrella (v6.14.00).
As of now, it is still not possible to downgrade to any version of iOS 6 even though you have saved the required SHSH blobs. One can say that the usefulness of blobs becomes less significant. However, it is highly possible that a new exploit will be discovered soon which will enable users to downgrade iOS 6.x.x. So saving your SHSH blobs is always considered a good practice despite the fact a downgrade method is not yet available. Just trust us on this and do it, you can thank us later.
