No you cannot save 6.0.1 shsh now, only 6.1 which is the latest using redsn0w or tinymbrella.

Could someone please clearly answer this question?

I am in the same boat, and am trying to choose my path now and get everything ready. I have a 6.0.1 Iphone 5, and a 6.0.1 Mini. I downloaded tinyumbrella, but it seems I won't be able to save my SHSH because I am now reading that Apple is no longer signing 6.0.1. I am also reading that I may be able to Jailbreak, then use Cydia to obtain the 6.0.1 SHSH, then update to 6.1?

So all in all, is it better for me to wait, Jailbreak on 6.0.1, or go ahead and install 6.1 then Jailbreak?

Thanks for the reply -

Gotcha - Tiny is telling me "not so much". Is there hope to obtain them after jailbreak, or should I go ahead and bring them both to 6.1, save those SHSHs and jailbreak after that?

  1. tiny umbrella is no longer needed. redsn0w does all that. after you jailbreak you should get shsh in cydia. ( 6.1 ) at least.

  2. don't hijack someone Else's question, start your own..
