iH8Sn0w has released iFaith 1.2.2, an update to his tool that dumps the SHSH Blobs of your current firmware, even if Apple is no longer signing that version.
- Added iPod Touch 2G Dumping capability (MC-Model users recommened)
- IPSW Creation for iPod Touch 2G is still a work in progress.
- Fixed exe compression issues (resulting in many DFU loops on IPSW creation).
- Fixed any Windows XP issues.
- Detects if the user inputs a decimal ECID when checking for available blobs.
iPod Touch 3G
iPod Touch 4
Apple TV 2
When I released iFaith v1.0, you probably noticed that the dumping was way faster than v1.1 and v1.2. In 1.1, I specifically made it dump slower since there seemed to be a swarm of users that got into a DFU Loop. I initially thought that this was because USB was not able to keep up with the dump.
So I released 1.1 about a month later which integrated SHA-1 verification and slower dumping to ensure that what was being dumped over USB was what was on the device and what iFaith was receiving. I thought this would resolve the issue but it doesn't seem to have. So, I later came to notice that the exe compression/encryption on iFaith was causing some read/write issues with IO on the pc side.
When I sent mostwanted a beta build via Twitter, he did indeed say that it was successful. The build I had sent him was just a rebuild of v1.1 without any compression or encryption. It is available here
I still see people complaining though that their getting DFU loops. The reason you'd be getting a DFU loop is that LLB and/or iBoot's SHSH Blobs were not properly dumped or written. Frankly, if you got a corrupt blob. Its virtually impossible to fix. Not until someone were to get a hold of Apple's SHSH signing keys. Which would make this app totally useless.
As of now, I'm sorry if your device is in a loop and you don't have any SHSH saved via TinyUmbrella or Cydia. Lets hope that v1.2.2 is the golden version. If you dumped blobs using v1.0 or v1.1 and got a DFU loop when building the ipsw with v1.2.2, then your blobs are useless pretty much. There isn't any other way I can put it.
At least I'm not hiding in the shadows pretending I'm not hearing this.
