TinyUmbrella has released a new verion 4.02.09 with support for iOS 4.1, to help and protect your baseband from being changed during a iPhone 4.1 firmware update. It is still recommended that should you wish to jailbreak and unlock your iPhone do not update to 4.1 yet. The ‘baseband’ is the generic nickname given to the internal components of the iPhone that handle the phone calls and Internet access. Thus, it is a tiny and unique independent computer system, which runs inside your iPhone.
The features of the new version of TinyUmberlla includes:
- Baseband Protection – Updating to 4.1 using TinyUmbrella will protect your baseband from update. THIS ONLY APPLIES TO IPHONE 4. If you have a 3G or 3GS and you update to 4.1 your baseband will likely be updated.
- SHSH Retrieval from Cydia – If you don’t have your SHSH locally, TinyUmbrella will request them from Cydia on-demand; allowing the restore to continue
- Automatically point hosts to Cydia – Once you close TinyUmbrella, it points your hosts file to Cydia (for further baseband protection and update/restores without TinyUmbrella)
- iPod Touch 4G 4.1 support
However, this new version of TinyUmbrella is also compatible with iPad OS 3.2.2 and you can now also save your iPad’s blobs using this software. We will let you know as soon as we have further updates. So till then stay tuned.
