TSSChecker’s Latest Update Fixes an Issue with iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus

It seems tihmstar has been busy putting right the flaws in his suite of tools; just one week after he revealed that a bug in his .shsh2 saving tool TSSChecker had led to all iPhone 7(+) blobs saved with it being invalid, a new update restores the ability to correctly save blobs on Apple’s most recent flagship device.

This may come as small consolation to those who had already saved their iOS 10.1.x blobs with the tool, and for whom it is now too late to re-save, but does bode well for the future. The fact that the problem was so quickly overcome is encouraging for the tool’s longevity going forward, and perhaps in a few months’ time, the iOS 10.2 blobs which can now be correctly saved are the ones everyone will need, for example to downgrade from 10.3 to 10.2 to jailbreak. It does seem that the new trend is for jailbreaks to be released for a firmware which has already gone unsigned, meaning that downgrade tools like Prometheus, and the TSSChecker blobs that it requires may begin to become a major part of the jailbreaking lifecycle in future.

If you have an iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus or an older iPhone model, I would highly recommend that you save the SHSH2 blob for iOS 10.2. Although Luca Todesco has stated that a jailbreak for this firmware is not planned at the moment, you never know when they will come in handy.

If you don’t want to go through the hassle of saving SHSH2 blobs using TSSChecker’s command line tool, then you can save it from TSSSaver website which is very easy to use.

The current beta of Yalu jailbreak supports iOS 10.1 – iOS 10.1.1. The jailbreak is not stable and contains a number of issues that could create problems on your device. It is recommended that you stay put and wait until Luca releases a stable version of this jailbreak. We will keep you updated as soon as this happens.
