Save SHSH2 blobs for iOS 10.3.1
It is recommended to save the certificate SHSH blobs, to be able to roll back or update to iOS 10.3.1 with the help of Prometheus, when Apple ceases to sign the Assembly.

Note: if you receive the number you used is not iTunes and the UDID Calculator, before you enter you select the “Dec” instead of “Hex” in accordance with the decimal format.
Step 4: In the field “Identifier”, select the model of your device. As an example, used by the iPhone 7 Plus, so in the first column, we choose “iPhone” and the second “iPhone 7 Plus”.
If you have an iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus or iPhone SE service may require more information. You will need the model number of the device, which can be obtained through the application BMSSM in the App Store.
