Apple has, very unexpectedly, released its mobile operating system iOS 6.1.4 for iPhone 5. Although there is going to be no jailbreak for the new version of iOS 6.1.4, TinyUmbrella has done its part of the job.
The jailbreak tool to save the SHSH blobs and APTicket has been updated to the TinyUmbrella 6.14.00 version and will support iPhone 5 running on iOS 6.1.4.
iOS developer NotCom declared the release of the new version of TinyUmbrella saying, "TinyUmbrella was updated for the stealth iOS 6.1.4 release for iPhone5,1 and iPhone5,2."
If you are thinking that there are two different kinds of iPhone 5 devices, then don't worry, the developer wants to say something else here.
According to a Redmond Pie report, NotCom coded the GSM version of iPhone 5 as iPhone 5,1 and the CDMA version as iPhone 5,2.
Last week, TinyUmbrella was updated to version 6.13.00 supporting the iOS 6.1.3. The new update fixed the ClassNotFoundException on platform bug for Windows users.
With this year's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) fast approaching, the announcement of iOS 7 is also expected to see the light of day.
Once the iOS 7 is released for the iPhone 5, the search for the next tethered and untethered jailbreaks will start and that will be the time when users of iOS 7 will be in need of SHSH blobs and APTickets to downgrade their devices once again to iOS 6.1.4.
The TinyUmbrella not only lets you downgrade your device to an earlier operating system, but also helps you come out from the DFU loop.
You can download the TinyUmbrella 6.14.00 for your iPhone 5 running iOS 6.1.4 from here:
TinyUmbrella 6.14.00 for Mac

You can save the SHSH blobs by following these simple steps:
1: Save the downloaded file on your desktop.
2: Double click on the file and allow it to 'Run'.
3: Connect your iPhone 5 to your computer.
4: Click on your device number at the top left side in the TinyUmbrella window and connect the device.
5: Head to 'Advanced' option and uncheck the first two options reading:
6: Make the location of your SHSH blobs in the directory to Desktop>SHSH.
7: Go to the 'Log' tab and see the entire process taking place.
8: Click on 'Save SHSH' and then head to the destination folder and check you save blob file.
