Where's semaphore? I've been quite busy completely reworking the plumbing of TU. I know I've been saying it for a long time but with how little spare time I have, (wife + family: 3 kids all in 2 sports + teaching + work) I've been nibbling at it slowly. Trust me. My wife would attest to this: I have been working on the rewrite :D
I've gotten the bare framework set for the TU rewrite but I want a more complete solution before I release. The new TU will support all the things that the old version supported with the addition of restoring custom and stock firmware without iTunes. I have run into the same snags that everyone else has run into that has tried this but I have a few ideas.
You guys are awesome. Thank you for being the coolest group of people I have ever associated with.
If you haven't jailbroken iOS 5.1.1 go get absinthe 2.0.x (link to the right) or redsn0w and jailbreak and make sure you save your 5.1.1 SHSH for when 6.0 drops.
