TinyUmbrella facilitates the process of restoring your iPhone's iOS, and is also useful for jailbreaking the device. It does two things:

  • Requests SHSH signatures for firmware restores
  • Plays back those signatures enabling iTunes to continue the restore
TinyUmbrella sends the same exact request that iTunes sends Apple when requesting the signatures for your device to be restored. The difference is that TinyUmbrella does not need to do anything to your device. You do not need to be on the firmware version that TinyUmbrella is requesting signatures. As an example, I've been on 3.1.2 for quite more...

Simply can't get it to work. I get the "Unable to validate libraries; reticulating spines" error on launch and then the app just quits. Searched the web for solutions, but most are PC based. Nothing seems to fix Mac issue. Damn shame.

Doesn't work with Oracle Java1.7 either. It's dead in the water for 64bitonly systems it seems. Apps need to be packaged with Oracles OS X tools in order to run under java 1.7.

V.6.14 is available now on the dev's site. With 6.12 I was not able to get the SHSH signature. 6.14 did it.
