In a blog,Semaphore has announced that he will update TinyUmbrella.The new update version will come with some new features.
From the blog:
I’ve been working on a few cool new features. I’ve heard some great ideas and have decided to put those ideas in place. Unfortunately, implementation of those ideas is taking a bit longer than I had anticipated. Heres a few of the great ideas I’ve gotten from all of you:
# 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.
Looking down the road, I have some big things that I plan on doing with TinyUmbrella. Here are a couple of the things I’m looking at in the long term:
* 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 🙂
