Hi to all, i want to save my 5S shsh of 7.0.4... when i run the latest version of tinyumbrella, it says me:

"APPLE is NOT signing iPhone5S_World 7.0.4 (11B554a) SHSH requests anymore. All you can do now is select CYDIA and hope that CYDIA has your SHSH saved. If not, there is nothing you can do."

Anyone could explain to me why?!?! i'm worried :(

SHSH/APTicket has not been very useful since the A5 era (iPad 2/mini/iPhone 4S and up). For iOS 7 they are only meaningful for A4 devices like the iPhone 4.

But if you still want to get the APTicket, look here:

@RoughWasterzNL well, one way is just to copy them from /System/Library/Caches/apticket.der (ha that’s how much Apple doesn’t care anymore!)

A4 devices can downgrade Because A4 devices have a bootrom exploit which is necessry for dwngrding idevices. And above A4 devices dont have...

Uhm i dont give a **** of downgrades! My worries are about restoring with the same firmware!! Can i, with a shsh of 7.0.4, restore again with a 7.0.4 a day when apple will stop signing that firmware?? If yes, HOW can i save the shsh of my 5S?? Thanx

The answer is No duuude. @msn_pishbin says it all. Blobs have not been useful since the introduction A5+ devices.

In this context, restoring to any version that is NOT currently signed by Apple's TSS can be considered a "downgrade". For example, you can't restore an iPhone 4S on 5.1.1 to 6.1.X even though 6>5.

So to stay safe don't do stupid things with your jailbroken iDevices.
