TinyUmbrella for Mac is a mobile phone tool that provides iPhone users with a valuable service of restoring their jailbroken iPhone to another firmware version! While this procedure is impossible using regular firmware management tools, this app manages to provide it by using previously saved SHSH blobs for loading and authenticating previous versions of OS firmware.

By having this tool handy and available on your Mac, you retain the ability to restore your jailbroken iPhone or iPad to the official operating system, which is a feature that can be quickly and safely done only with help from a third-party app.

The procedure for enabling your iPhone to be reverted to an official firmware release is handled completely by the Tiny Umbrella for macOS, which runs in the background of your Mac and collects information about your iPhone via your iTunes account and official Apple servers. After successfully scanning the phone's account and collecting all the needed and unique SHSH blobs, it prepares a unique version of the OS update file that is routed to online Cydia servers where it is preserved and offered for access whenever your want it via TSS client or even via offline iTunes update.

In the event that Apple has decided to stop supporting the signing of certain firmware updates, the entire downgrade procedure will become unavailable. Thankfully the application will notify you with clear warnings. If you are too late to create a downgrade point for your firmware, you can try extracting SHSH data directly from your iPhone using other 3rd party app solutions.

Simply install TinyUmbrella for Mac using an automated installer, connect your iPhone to Mac via USB cable, and start the app that will automatically detect your phone.

TinyUmbrella is 100% FREE and can be used on all modern versions of macOS.
