    Default 5.1.1 SHSH Blobs

    This may sound stupid but is there somewhere to download the iPhone 3GS 5.1.1 SHSH blobs? My brother updated his phone to iOS6 and now wants to downgrade. He did not save his SHSH files prior to updating. I have searched for advice but nothing comes up unless you HAVE saved the SHSH blobs prior. I also don't know if SHSH blobs belong to a certain device, or if there are universal blobs to download (maybe someone else saved them and uploaded them to be downloaded). I do not need to know the process to downgrade, I just need the blobs themselves.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Not that I am aware of. The SHSH blobs are unique to each phone/installation of iOS... you have to save your own or move to the new version of iOS, AFAIK.

    Fausty82 is right, no way to downgrade to 5.1.1 since he didn't save his blobs and apple is no longer signing 5.1.1.

    Can't you download the 5.1 full software image and do a shift + restore in iTunes? Tis what I did when I was playing with iOS 6 beta.

    Tried that. Won't connect because of the servers signing of these blobs. I have tried different host file adjustments, and nothing works.

    Apple didnt render your phone useless. YOUR BROTHER did things to it without knowing the consequences.

    Yes, you can do that all day long... the issue isn't getting the iOS version installed, it's getting Apple to activate the device. After they release a new versions, they stop "signing" or activating the older version. That's what the SHSH Blobs are - the digital signing from Apple.

    This wasn't Apple's doing... if you hadn't updated the iOS version, you'd be fine. But since you tried to update, you can't go back. Don't blame Apple for your own actions.

    You can do a tethered jailbreak on iOS 6. It's not ideal, so weigh the pros and cons.

    Slightly off topic here but is it possible to upgrade from iOS 4.x to say 5.1.1 without SHSH blobs or will the device automatically be upgraded to the latest OS?

    BTW, Merry Christmas !

    No way to upgrade to 5.1.1 since Apple is no longer signing it and u can't downgrade to it since u don't have have the blobs saved. If u update it will put u on 6.0.1 and you'll have to wait for a jailbreak to be released if u have a 4S

    Fausty82, thats the worse, stupid answer I ever read.
    Like saying "you are stupid because you want to update your SO without asking Apple 4 permission"

    Thats the only reason to move on to Android. With android you update your SO version you want whenever you want and you dont have to ask anyone 4 permission, n oone has to "allow" you to use it.
    I use android phones and I bought and iPhone to see how great it was and I got IOS (Cisco Operating system OS name) 4.1 and I cannot update it to anything because of this stupid SHSH apple persmision. Apple has to allow me to install a new operating system on MY phone and every user accepts that happily.

    Iphone is nothing but an excelent phone with a crapy SO.

    Apple is the best hardware sold with commercial policies used in the early computers days (1980) (any old computer dinosaur like me will know what Im talking about)

    Dude, how many drugs have you experimented with to make your brain such an incoherent scrambled mess?
    A specific question was asked, then a specific answer was given. Then the op complained about how his phone was ruined, when in fact, it was updated, to the latest greatest newest firmware. In reply, op was informed that his (brothers) own actions are what caused the "problem".

    So no, fausty did not give a stupid answer.
    As to your android operating system comments... What in the name of google are you talking about?
    Android is a fragmented mess!
    OS rollouts happen randomly, intermittently and often times without "real world" testing. There are hundreds of different devices and hundreds of different OS's and you most certainly cannot flash or update your firmware whenever you like without root access.

    Crappy OS ?? Have you really used android ??

    Why would apple want you to use old outdated software ?

    So you can install un authorized software for your benefit ?

    Then when your phone is messed up it will be apples fault correct ?

    Please question asked answer given

    Hi just saw ur post u can't downgrade iphone 3gs to 5.1.1 but u can downgrade it to 4.1 by using redsn0w (latest version)
    So u need
    1. Ios 4.1
    2. Redsnow (latest version)
    In redsn0w goto extra > even more > restore > select ipsw > point it to ios 4.1
    It will ask u to put ur device in dfu mode just follow the instruction and that's it let the process finish

    I did these steps to downgrade my iphone 3gs i got i repaired after 1yr from last one yr it was in my drawer my kids spilled tea on it and it wasn't working at all.
    This whole process didn't asked me for blob file that's y m not mentioning it.
