Save iOS 5.0 & iOS 5.0.1 Blobs Using iFaith v1.4 for Windows [How-to Guide]

As we have reported earlier, iH8sn0w has pushed out a new version of its first ever SHSH dumping tool, dubbed as iFaith v1.4. Now you can use iFaith to save SHSH blobs of firmware iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1. This version does not only save the SHSH blobs but the APticket as well which is useful if you are going to restore to iOS 5.0 or iOS 5.0.1 later.

Yes, with iFaith v1.4, you can now create a custom IPSW for iOS 5.0 and restore to it later. If you have been keeping up with jailbreak news, the rumored untethered jailbreak will be coming to iOS 5.0. So you can upgrade to firmware higher than iOS 5.0 without worries as long as you use this latest version of iFaith to save your SHSH blobs. And here we are again to provide you with an in-depth tutorial on how to save iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1 SHSH blobs using iFaith v1.4.

Before You Proceed:

  • iFaith v1.4 (or any versions of it for that matter) only works for Windows OS.
  • Saving iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1 SHSH blobs doesn't require a jailbroken device, so go ahead and do it, you have nothing to lose.
  • iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users are out of luck since A5 devices are not supported by iFaith yet.

Steps on How to Save iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1 SHSH Blobs using iFaith:

  1. First is of course you need to download the latest version of iFaith (version 1.4). Just click on the link to download iFaith v1.4.
  2. Once you have finished download, extract the downloaded zipped file into your desktop (or whichever location you prefer).
  3. Extract iFaith 1.4

  4. From the extracted files, launch iFaith by double-clicking the iFaith-v1.4.exe file.

      Hi! Unless you have managed to backup all your Cydia tweaks and apps using the utility called PkgBackup, I’m afraid you will have to manually add them again. For more information:
