How to fix some mysterious problems.

My iPhone 4 got stuck in a rebooting loop and wouldn't turn on. I didn't realize that with redsn0w I can do "Just Boot" to get it out of the loop. So I restored it. I knew that I would have to update to be able to get it to work again and so I did. I was able I jailbreak again but many cydia apps and tweaks aren't compatible and I really want them, especially the Evais0n untethered jailbreak package you can download. I didn't save my SHSH blobs while I was still in iOS 6.0.1 and so now I can't downgrade to that. I was wondering if there was any way that you could download this firmware from the Internet and then save it as a SHSH blob. I was hopin to restore it to 6.1.2. Thanks for any help!

SHSH is unique to each device and can only be saved while the firmware is the latest. It can also pulled from 3gs/A4 devices if the device is running on that firmware. If you don't have it now, there is no way to get it.

Unfortunately Cydia cannot possibly have your blobs as the ones from 6-6.1.2 are not usable.

Oh because I thought when you jailbroke your phone, cydia automatically saves the current SHSH blobs of your phone

Not all Cydia saved 6.x blobs are dud. I got a good 6.1.2 from Cydia - at least iFaith stiched the IPSW with it and did not complain. I havn't yet tried to send it to the phone though.

cant get SHSH blobs for 6.1.2 now, but i recommend that you manually save your blobs using TinyUmbrella or redsn0w from now on
