Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 8.3, 8.2, and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.3, 8.2, or 8.1.3 to earlier versions.
Instructions for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. See /r/jailbreak on Reddit, @PanguTeam, and @TaiG_jailbreak for updates.

Hi, I upgraded my Iphone 4 to 5.1 using Apple's firmware. It was jailbroken before. Is it possible to get the SHSH blobs of my Iphone 4 using another device (Iphone 3)?

Why do you want to do that? Maybe there's an alternative that we can help with.

Well, the iphone 4 is locked with firmware 5.1. I wanted to know if there is a possibility to downgrade it.

If you want to restore your device to iOS 5.0.1, see this guide to checking your SHSH blobs and downgrading using them - you'll need to use a computer as part of the process.

No, it's unique for each device.

Actually can be done using the cydia app iSHSHit. Enter ECID , model, firmware and whether from apple or cydia server and you can save SHSH blob and email it.

Thanks for your answer guys.

iSHSHit does not have an option to enter ECID number, at least the version I have. Is that possible on other versions?

Unique Chip ID = ECID

You cant use them without a computer, so that would be pointless. Also, this thread is 6 months old. Also, we can't get blobs based on a username. Also, you failed to read @britta's comment on the original post.
