Step Seven
The following command will save your SHSH2 blobs.

tsschecker_windows -B BOARDCONFIG -e ECID -i IOSVERSION -s

Replace the Board Config (Device Model), ECID, and iOS Version with the correct values for your device. We located the Device Model and ECID earlier. The iOS version is the firmware version currently being signed by Apple. At this time it is '10.2'.

tsschecker_windows -B D111AP -e 1D19AAAAAAAAAA -i 10.2 -s

When I try to save the blobs on my Ipad Air, it only says that the iOS is NOT signed. But it clearly is signed because it's the latest iOS atm. 11.2.1.... I am entering the correct values.

I had same problem and I found solution in one of comment below, posted by fpozzer. There's a bug with the latest version of tsschecker, which says 10.2 is not being signed any-more. Try by downloading this earlier version: https://github.com/tihmstar/tsschecker/releases/download/v170/tsschecker_v170_mac_win_linux.zip

This version of C:\Users\Pari\Downloads\tsschecker-latest\tsschecker_windows.exe is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your comput er's system information to see whether you need a x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) v ersion of the program, and then contact the software publisher. what is this error

I tried the given steps and kind of complicated, bcos the editor never says one should hit enter. But if you apply the editors steps you would get through. The complicated stage is this Step Seven The following command will save your SHSH2 blobs. tsschecker_windows -B BOARDCONFIG -e ECID -i IOSVERSION -s Replace the Board Config (Device Model), ECID, and iOS Version with the correct values for your device. We located the Device Model and ECID earlier. The iOS version is the firmware version currently being signed by Apple. At this time it is '10.2'. tsschecker_windows -B D111AP -e 1D19AAAAAAAAAA -i 10.2 -s Those command given are to be modify according to your phone. scroll back to step 3 and 4.
