As it was expected, the iOS 7 did not please everybody. Some users were disappointed by the new innovative design and appearance while others discovered that iOS 7 did not offer the same performance when running on older devices such as iPhone 4. In this case, the only solution is to downgrade to a previous version.
Fortunately, the SHSH blob saving program iH8Snow’s iFaith has recently been updated to version 1.5.9 in order to support Apple’s latest firmware. According to the official blog, the program has been updated with support of dumps 2nd generation Apple TV blobs and other bug fixes.
For those who are not familiar to this tool, the iFaith is a Windows exclusive tool that was used in order to save SHSH blobs and APTickets right from your device. This will allow users to save SHSH blobs on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, which run such firmware version, and Apple is not signing.
As mentioned earlier, iFaith brings a couple of bug fixes and improvements. As noted in the change log, iFaith 1.5.9 brings fixed bug when building signed IPSW’s with iPhone 3.2 blobs. In the same time, it dumps Apple TV 2 models running 5.3/10B809. For the last change, iFaith fixes bug with APTicket validation causing a client-side crash on machines not connected to the internet.
Therefore, iFaith helps users extract the SHSH blobs existing in an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, and it helps in saving these blobs to the system. After blobs are saved, users can easily downgrade to the respective firmware version anytime they want, even when Apple is no longer signing for it. If done successfully, users would be able to downgrade to any Apple firmware.
It is worth mentioning the fact that iFaith is a Windows-based tool. It works only on Windows desktops. For Mac users, Snowbreeze is available for saving SHSH blobs. You can download iFaith 1.5.9 from our Download iFaith page.
