iFaith v1.3 Released, Fixes DFU Loops And Other Bugs

iH8Sn0w has released a new version ofiFaith v1.3. iFaith v1.3 comes with some major changes so we cannot say it’s a minor release. One the major issue which has been fixed in this release is “DFU Loop”, some users were stuck continuous DFU Loop after restoring back to stock or jailbreaked firmware. The problem has been fixed now, complete change log is given below.

iFaith v1.3 supports following devices :

Apple TV 2G
iPad 1
iPhone 3GS
iPhone 4
iPod Touch 2G
iPod Touch 3G
iPod Touch 4G

As iFaith uses DFU bootrom exploit to work and we don’t have any bootrom level exploit for iPad 2 to iFaith v1.3 won’t support iPad 2.

Release Notes of iFaith v1.3:
For iOS 3.1.x/3.2.x/4.0.x/4.1/4.2.1/4.2.6/4.2.7/4.2.8/4.3/4.3.1/4.3.2/4.3.3
DFU Loops were being caused on devices that had the factory certificate.
On this new version. When building the signed IPSW. If you were getting
a DFU loop, say “NO” to the prompt about using the standard
signing certificate.
* You can now use TinyUmbrella blobs to build a signed IPSW.
[Change Filetype in browse dialog to "TinyUmbrella SHSH blobs".]
* Now adds ECID to beginning of the SHSH filename after dumping.
* Now adds ECID to beginning of the IPSW filename after being built.
* Cleaned up code + payload.
* Its not possible to add iPad 2 support until a bootrom exploit arises.
Want to know more about iFaith, please read below:
if you want to restore your iDevice to a previous iOS, the process will fail unless you have the blobs for that particular iOS version saved and use such tools as TinyUmbrella.
But, saving the blobs for an iOS version can only be done as long as Apple still signs that iOS. When a new iOS version is being released, Apple stops signing the previous version and if you didn’t save your blobs you can kiss your downgrade goodbye. Or that’s how it was until today. Because iFaithhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif takes care of this problem.
If your iDevice is susceptible to the Limera1n jailbreak ( all iDevices except iPad 2, iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G – last two are forever jailbreakable ) you can use iFaith to dump the blobs from the device.
For example, if your device is running a prior iOS to 4.3.3 ( latest release to date ), you can use iFaith to get the blobs for your iOS version even if Apple stopped signing it.
