Semaphore also known as @notcom has already confirmed that after the scratch start of TinyUmbrella will support the latest iOS versions including iOS 8.2 and iOS 8.1.2 and iOS devices including iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus. The TinyUmbrella version is available in beta and it requires Java.
This latest beta of TinyUmbrella a number of fixes and some improvements. The complete change log is here provided by developer semaphore at TinyUmbrella blog:
- Architecture detection – TinyUmbrella will now warn you if iTunes is a different architecture. This affects device detection. If TinyUmbrella and iTunes are not the same architecture, TinyUmbrella will not be able to detect your device
- Contention issues – I had some nasty race conditions revolving around startup and the handling of files. This has been fixed in the latest build
- SHSH ECID and Version detection – TinyUmbrella was failing to detect very old (3.x) SHSH formats. This resulted in -1.shshs. This has been fixed and the actual SHSHs found in those -1 files will be placed in their proper homes automatically.
- Longer TSS Fetch cooldown – This is important because if we hit the TSS servers too quickly, their flood detection will kick in and we will earn ourselves a nice temporary IP ban.
- Device Highlighting from SHSH table – When you select a signature in the table, the corresponding device is highlighted in the device tree.
- Many more bug fixes
@notcom further claims that this version of TinyUmbrella is providing support to on-device SHSH fetching for A7 and A8 devices which includes:
- A7 Devices include:
- iPhone 5S, iPad Air, iPad Mini 2 (retina), iPad Mini 3
- A8 Devices include:
- iPhone 6, iPhone 6 plus, iPad Air 2
