iFaith Error -2 (Download Failure) when Dumping iOS 4.3.3 SHSH Blobs

Hello, I have an iPhone 4 which is running jailbroken iOS 4.3.3. Right now I am thinking to restore it to stock iOS 4.3.3 to get rid some of my pesky and unresponsive apps. Anyway, since it’s impossible to do it with TinyUmbrella, I downloaded iFaith version 1.2 and started to dump my blobs. But after putting my iPhone in DFU mode, I get an error: Error -2 (Download Failure) and iFaith freezes. I click OK, and then iFaith closes. Now my iPhone is stuck in recovery mode. Any idea how to fix this? Thanks.

Hello Brian, first you will need to kick your iPhone out of infinite recovery mode loop using the standalone TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery). The steps on how to use this tool can be found below:

Step 1: First, of course you will need to download TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) for your Windows (Direct Link) or Mac OS X (Direct Link).

Step 2: You will also need to get Zlib1.dll from here and then place it in the same folder / location where you saved the downloaded fixrecovery43.exe.

Step 3: Once you have all the materials, connect your iPhone into your PC or Mac through USB cable and power OFF your device.

Step 4: Then fire up iTunes as well as TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) and then refer on the guide below to our iPhone in DFU mode:

  • Press and hold the Power and Home button for 10 seconds.
  • Then release Power button after 10 seconds but continue holding the Home button for another 10 seconds.

Step 5: That’s it! You will now be able to use your iPhone after few minutes.

Well, regarding the “Error -2 (Download Failure)” this error occurs because you were using a corrupted version of iFaith. To bypass this error you will need to use the latest version of the tool, which you can get from here (iFaith v1.3.2). Then follow this tutorial on how to create and restore signed IPSW using iFaith SHSH Blobs Dumper.
