Backing up the SHSH Blobs is useful in case you accidentally upgrade your jailbroken device to Apple’s latest firmware, you can’t re-jailbreak it until hackers release a new jailbreak software. That has taken as long two months. You can downgrade the firmware on your device— if you have your SHSH blobs on file.

There are several ways to backup the SHSH blobs but here we will cover the steps using AutoSHSH.
