So I'm trying to grasp the concept of doing this. It saves an SHSH BLOB, whatever that is, to my computer so if I accidentally upgrade to a new firmware I can restore my phone to the saved firmware (SHSH blob right?) without apple signing the firmware.
A few questions:
1. Can I still run iFaith to save my SHSH blob firmware, 5.0, if I am jailbroken before running the application?
2. If no, why not?
3. This does nothing to the phone itself but save a blob, right?
4. Is it safe?

when i did mine yesterday i did not have to restore. however, there was an option to at the end of making my own ipsw file. i chose not too
side note: late last night i had plugged my phone in and it started syncing with iTunes like usual. a few minutes later i went to browse the web and my phone was in safe mode. so i forced started the sync via the device and it crashed again. i could not sync at all with iTunes. so i decided to restore, as new, and re-jailbreak. yeah, it might have been a little extreme to do this but i did not have the patience, or time, to troubleshoot
something must have happened when i used the iFaith software because i have not tweaked my phone for a couple of days and i have synced with iTunes since then without a problem. now, i'll have to wait for 5.1 to be released to see if the custom firmware i created will work, or not

Final question...creating an SHSH blob while jailbroken creates a stock blob with no files of a jailbroken device(so when restored through iTunes from the blob its restored stock and not restored jailbroken(which I don't think is possible lol), yes??) The video didn't specify if it was a jailbroken phone or not.
Trying to eliminate any problems lol.
You guys have been helpful like always!

i guess ideally, it would be best to save blobs right after a fresh restore as new?
