iFaith is a new SHSH dumping tool for all iOS devices which lets you save SHSH blobs an old firmware currently running on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch even if it’s not being signed by Apple. iFaith is developed by iH8Sn0w, the dev behind Sn0wbreeze, f0recast and iREB.
SHSH blobs are necessary to downgrade firmware, without these SHSH blobs you can not restore a firmware which is not being signed by Apple and once Apple stops signing a firmware, you cannot save SHSH blobs for it. This is where iFaith comes in. Using iFaith, you can save SHSH blobs for an old firmware running on your iDevice even if Apple has stopped signing it. iFaith not only backup SHSH blobs, it can also build custom .IPSW using those blobs.
iFaith supports: iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G, iPod touch 3G, iPad and the Apple TV 2G (Devices vulnerable to Limera1n jailbreak exploit). iPad 2 is not supported.
