New Features Coming to TinyUmbrella

Semaphore has announced that he will be updating TinyUmbrella will numerous new features in the near future.

Here's a few of the ideas he is working on:

● Device History: TinyUmbrella will remember device information of devices that have connected so that saving SHSH's for those devices in the future no longer requires you to connect the device.
● Save All SHSH's Available "On-File" at Cydia: TinyUmbrella will now automatically check Cydia for ALL SHSHs for the connected device (or device from history :) )
● TinyUmbrella will also help you detect what application is running on your computer that is taking up port 80 and will give you the option to kill that application. This should help many of you that don't know what application may be listening on port 80 (ie. Skype)
● TinyUmbrella will also tell you what firmware versions you can safely downgrade or restore to whenever you connect the device (or select a device from history)
● TinyUmbrella will be sporting a cleaner UI based on some of the great suggestions from @chpwn (a friend and fellow chronic dev team associate)
● Support for PowerPC and more stable runtime for folks having problems running TinyUmbrella for odd and various reasons.

Long term plans include:

● Activation Support: I've started looking into the way the phone requests (and obtains) activation from apple's servers. I'm confident I can duplicate this process but I have more investigation as the the process is incredibly complicated.
● Full Restore Support without iTunes: I'm looking at implementing my own complete restore mechanism. I have not decided if I'll directly use @p0sixninja's libirestore or whether I'll try to do something that hasn't been done before... ie in java :)

Likewise, thanks for all of your hard work. I appreciate it and anything that can release the grip of Apple on devices that we own is surely welcome! Bless you my son :)

I believe that the whole iphone user community is indebted to you guys for all your hard work. The plan envisioned will blow away some people that have been holding iphone users hostage wrt upgrades/jailbreaks. Thanks a million guys and keep up the great work. All the best for the planned activities.

TinyUmbrella is already a great and very usefull iphone tool.... even if only one of these great ideas showed up on it, it would only make it that much better...... and the idea of the restore without itunes would be freakin awsome

if he does indeed create his own mechanism for restoring iphone/ipod/ipad\'s - that will basically make the entire SHSH process void to Apple :D If someone wants to restore and apple says they can\'t in itunes, they download TinyUmbrella and restore that way! I bet that\'ll put Apple on their toes for a little while until they release a new device with a new checking method...
