How To Use Firmware Umbrella To Save SHSH Blobs?

We have already shared an easy way to backup your iDevice SHSH blobs using AutoSHSH Grabber. Firmware Umbrella is another software which allows you to backup your SHSH blobs so that you can downgrade and re-jailbreak your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad incase you unintentionally upgrade to the future firmware releases by Apple. Apple stops signing older firmwares as soon as it releases a new firmware inorder to stop you from downgrading to previous firmware releases. So it is always recommended to save your SHSH in order to keep the jailbreak of your iDevice safe.
