This article is about the Tiny Umbrella and how Tiny Umbrella can be used to synchronize iPod and iPhone if the user wishes to jailbreak his device. It can also be used as a substitute for iTunes.
Tiny Umbrella is software for users to synchronize their music, videos and photos into their iPod, iPhone, and iPad. It is usually used for restoring iPod or iPhone with older firmware if needed by getting backups with SHSH blobs.
The Tiny Umbrella is used to connect an apple device with the system. This Tiny Umbrella acts like a file manager. Tiny Umbrella can good substitute for iTunes where you have to erase and synchronize if we use the same device in different systems. But that problem is not there in Tiny Umbrella. The Tiny umbrella restores the iPod using SHSH blobs rather than using the iPod firmware each and every time that makes the process more and more complicated. That is why synchronising is Tiny Umbrella is really good. If you are using a jail broken iPod with iTunes it is risky because it will get locked and you may also lose your warranty. So Tiny Umbrella is used by everyone because of its simplicity. It does all these functions from its main server Cydia.
