In this tutorial, we are going to walk you through the process of downloading SHSH2 for Prometheus to upgrade / downgrade on unsigned iOS firmware via TSS Saver. We are going to explain the process in the the tutorial below in simplest possible terms so that anyone can follow to upgrade / downgrade unsigned iOS firmware using SHSH2 blobs for Prometheus using TSS Saver.
One of the biggest problems that many iOS users face involves upgrading or downgrade their device’s iOS version onto the iOS firmware that’s no longer officially supported by Apple. Jailbreak fans would be familiar with this issue. When Apple stop digitally signing an iOS version, it becomes virtually impossible to either upgrade or downgrade onto the it. But thanks to iOS developer and tweaker titmstar who has released a new tool called Prometheus which possess the capability of gleaning together the important information required to upgrade or downgrade to an iOS version that doesn’t get Apple signature support. The tool is being tipped to be released on the New Year’s eve and works on already jailbroken 64-bit iOS devices.
Why Use .SHSH2 Blobs?
As you might have come across the news that Luca Tedesco is one the verge of releasing the iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak exploit based on Google’s Project Zero. This, soon to be released, tool will come in handy in many situations, especially those who are using iOS 9.3.3 jailbroken devices and preferred to remain on iOS 9.3.3 instead of upgrading to iOS 10.1.1 until the fully working jailbreak for the iOS 10 or above becomes available. Those of you can save .shsh2 blobs for iOS 10.1.1 right away, so that when the iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak exploit finally drops, they can easily upgrade from iOS 9.3.3 to iOS 10.1.1 even though Apple no longer signs iOS 10.1.1.
A companion toll called tsschecker has been released by the developer which allows your to save .shsh2 blobs necessary to upgrade / downgrade on unsigned iOS. As the previous tool that used the tsschecker to save .shsh2 blobs was based on a complex process that required technical know-how of the matter, this prompted the emergence of a new toll called TSS Saver by none other than 1Conan iOS developer and tweaker. This new tool has greatly reduced the level of difficulty of saving .shsh2 blobs, which is now a lot more user-friendly as we are going to show you in the guide below.
