Consequently, the purpose of this guide is to show you how to use iFaith 1.5.6 to save SHSH blobs locally on your computer by extracting it from the device.

Difference between iFaith and TinyUmbrella

iFaith is similar to TinyUmbrella but personally, I find it to be more reliable in the sense that iFaith fetches SHSH blobs directly from the device and save it locally. Although it can also check for blobs on server and fetch but, blobs saved on Cydia servers are not always reliable and can cause problems when restoring.

Apart from saving blobs, it can also be used to make custom IPSW with blob stitching. Therefore, iFaith is the choice for SHSH blobs saving. Learn to save blobs after the jump.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
