How to save the SHSH of the iPhone with Redsnow 0.9.10b6.
Hello SamaGame Readers, RedSn0w has been updated, as Musclenerd warned, and now it allows us many new functions that will make it easier for us to Jailbreak and everything that revolves around it. Today I bring you a tutorial of how to save shsh data that allow us to go back to previous versions of firmware, something that Apple does not allow through iTunes in an “official” way. It must be said, for those who have just started jailbreaking and unlocking the iPhone, that once Apple releases a new firmware, after a few days it closes the possibility of downgrading to a lower firmware, with the problems for the jailbreak that this entails.

To save our SHSH in Cydia through RedSn0w, we just have to follow a few simple steps and a .plist file will also be created that can be very useful in the future, so we recommend creating and saving it in case we need it to Jailbreak the iOS5 or simply in case we want to downgrade the iOS version.
1. Open the new Redsn0w 0.9.9b1 and choose Additional features.
2. Once pressed, all these options will appear:
3. Since what we want is to save our SHSH in Cydia and create the .plist file, we click on SHSH blobs:
4. Now the saving option is found in fetch so we click on the first option and we will have this new screen:
5. In the previous image we can read that we have to turn off our iPhone so that when we click on Next, they give us the instructions to put it in DFU mode. Click on Next.
In these images we see the instructions that RedSn0w gives us to put the iPhone in DFU mode. If it doesn’t work out for you, iPhoneOSX recommends you follow these steps:
- Have the iPhone on the SpringBoard
- Press the home and sleep button at the same time until the screen turns off by itself
- Once it turns off, wait 2 seconds
- Release the sleep button WITHOUT DROPPING the home button
- Press and hold the home button until RedSn0w recognizes DFU mode
6. Once RedSn0w detects that the iPhone is in DFU mode, it begins a process in which we will see the following images:
During this process the iPhone will show a blank screen and then it will reboot itself. We must not disconnect it or touch anything so that there is no damage to your device.
7. Once the process has been done correctly, we will have the following image from RedSn0w:
This indicates that the process is finished and that Cydia has saved all our SHSH data on their servers for future restores.
RedSn0w 0.9.9b1 will allow us to check if we have done our saving correctly, and it will even inform us about the SHSH of which firmware we have saved, which is very important to know which firmware we can downgrade to. To perform this query, we must follow the following steps:
8. We open RedSn0w 0.9.9b1 again select extras/ SHSH blobs/ Now we are going to click on Query to check the firmware that we have saved with the SHSH and we will get the following:
9. In this window, we can enter the ECID of our device to show us if it has the SHSH saved and the firmware versions, but we also have the option of putting an asterisk
and it will show us all the ones that we have saved so I am going to put the asterisk and click on OK:
10. Now RedSn0w will search the servers, with our ECID, as we see in the following image:
11. Once this process is finished, all the SHSH that we have saved in Cydia are displayed, ordered by devices:
Well, that’s it, and don’t forget that if you have any questions, we’ll try to resolve them in the comments or we’ll be in the chat.
