Q. How to save SHSH2 Blobs with TSS Saver?

A. Saving SHSH Blobs with TSS Saver is very easy. Simply follow the tutorial given below.

Q. Is TSS Saver better than Savethemblobs?

A. No, Savethemblobs is a script that only saves SHSH Blobs. It does not save SHSH2 Blobs. Generator is needed for use with Future Restore.

For the uninitiated, SHSH2 Blobs are required for Prometheus (Future Restore) whereas iDeviceReRestore Downgrade tool requires SHSH Blobs.

Q. How do I get my ECID number?

A. You can use iTunes or UDID Calculator to get the ECID value for your iOS device.

Remember, iTunes displays a Hexadecimal value while UDID Calculator gives a Decimal value.

Q. How do I get the Board Configuration of my device?

A. You can find your board configuration using Battery Memory System Status Monitor (BMSSM) or Geekbench 4.

Both of these applications are available on the official App Store.

Q. How to fix “Board configuration not recognized” error?

A. This error means you are not entering the correct board configuration for your device. Find the correct board configuration and use that.

Q. How can I find the generator inside SHSH2 Blob? 

A. The generator is present in the middle of your SHSH2 file. This is happens because TSS Checker saves both OTA and Erase blobs. Erase blobs contain the generator.

Q. What is an apnonce?

A. A nonce is a random number that is used only once. It is used in authentication protocols to stop replay attacks.

Q. What does noapnonce folder mean?

A. This folder means that a manually specified apnonce has not been set.

Q. Why is TSS Saver down right now? 

A. You may get the following message –

502 Bad Gateway
nginx/1.11.10

The means the server of TSS Saver is under heavy load. This happens because a lot of users try to access it at the same time.

Conan has already setup a new script that beings the tool back online whenever it goes offline.

Q. Why doesn’t the link contain my SHSH2 Blob?

A. This happens due to a “segmentation fault” error. Simply, use the tool again and it should work within 2-3 attempts.

Q. TSS Saver seems complicated. Is there any easy way to SHSH2 Blobs?

A. Yes, you can use Telegram Jailbreak Bot to save your Blobs. It is much easier to use than TSS Saver. Follow the tutorial given below.

Q. I am getting “TSS Saver error: rate limit reached (Error code: 0)” error. How can I fix it?

A. This is a server-side error. To fix this, try the tool after a period of 24 hours.

Q. Does TSS Saver save SHSH2 blobs automatically?

A. TSS Saver automatically fetches SHSH blobs for new firmware versions. Its server has to go through a lot of ECIDs and many a time blobs can get saved incorrectly. Therefore, I highly recommend you check and verify that your blobs were saved properly.

Developer Nullpixel is currently developing a user-friendly tool based on TSS Saver. This upcoming tool will save your Blobs at the push of a button.

However, this tool will work on jailbroken devices only due to Sandbox restrictions.
