In a number of Twitter updates which hit the Web earlier today, iPhone Dev-Team member @MuscleNerd confirmed that the upcoming version of redsn0w will make use of users’ SHSH blobs for iOS 5.0+. Furthermore, he advised jailbreak fans to save their SHSH blobs using TinyUmbrella (if they haven’t already).

Following this, he added:

For a while now, the iPhone Dev-Team has been working on a version of redsn0w that will have the capacity to provide iOS 5 devices with an untethered jailbreak solution.

In the meantime, be sure to save your SHSH blobs using TinyUmbrella. For more information regarding the app, take a look at our article.
