Restoring local firmware is severely hindered on newer devices, developer says
Developer semaphore has released a new version of TinyUmbrella (7.04.00) for Mac and Windows users, offering support for the latest firmware from Apple.A cross-platform app designed to assist iPhone customers in restoring their iOS firmware, TinyUmbrella now offers full support for iOS 7.0.4, but not without some caveats.
TinyUmbrella creator semaphore writes on his blog, “After a long time away, I updated TinyUmbrella for 7.0.4 support. The support is limited as restoring local firmware is severely hindered on newer devices.”
The developer adds, “Older devices (iPhone 3GS in particular and some iPhone 4 devices – with help) can still benefit from local restores if even in a small way.”
Semaphore says he’s actively seeking new ways to make local restores possible. He promises to announce his update in a future post. In the meanwhile, you can grab TinyUmbrella for iOS 7.0.4 at the links below.
