In other words, it allows users to restore, update, or downgrade to unsigned firmware with shsh 2 blobs.

Wondering what heck shsh 2 blobs is? SHSH2 blobs signify digital signatures, which Apple uses to make particular IPSW files, known as iOS software. In this way, users can install only trusted software on their iDevices. Once a new iOS version is released, Apple stops to sign the signature on previous versions, resulting in no option for users, but to update their device iOS version to latest one. However, if users able to save their current shsh 2 blobs, then they can roll back their firmware to the iOS version their device is current running, even in the case if it is unsigned.

There are three downgrade methods of the futureRestore tool, and some methods require a jailbreak on the iPhone and some other requirements you have to fulfill in order to downgrade the same iOS version.
