A SHSH blob (also known as “ECID SHSH”) is a piece of data of Apple’s Digital Signature for iOS Restores and Updates.This is the way Apple implemented to control what users can and cannot do regarding to updates and restores using iTunes.
TinyUmbrella is used for local iPhone iOS restores making it possible. How cool is that for those who like to downgrade / restore / jailbreak? Jailbreakers can install jailbreakable older versions that are not signed by Apple right now.
