it works fine but how can i unlock my phone 4s


we need with sam ticket reserved pls ? i got msg need activation iphone for to jeailbreak it so?


this is jailbreak not unlock...


if u use SAM tickets to unlock your phone u will lose your unlock u will get activation screen after jailbreak using evasi0n, but dont be panic just do rejailbreak using redsn0w and ios 6.0

1. download latest redns0w
2. download ios 6.0
3. open redsn0w > select firmware 6.0 > jailbreak > just add ticket dont thick/check jailbreak option
4. if u stuck on black screen just hard reset (home button + power button)



My iPhone 3gs is stuck on activation screen .... can i still do the jailbreak ?


niceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee thank you so muchh


anyone know how to update and jailbreak without losing all my tweaks? iphone 4 5.1.1 to 6.1


Does Redsn0w support 6.1 also? because I can't upgrade to 6.0


I Have sam tickets and i'm currently running on ios 5.1.1 and want to upgrade to ios 6 and jailbreak and use sam tickets but I'm afraid I will not be able to activate my phone without original Sim. If I upgrade to the latest version of IOS to jailbreak then my phone will not be activated and do the jailbreak!! any help?


I don't think its possible


I mean in order to do the jailbreak I need to upgrade to IOS 6.1 right?
Then my phone will be deactivated and I won't be able to jailbreak!!


If u running on 5.1.1 and already unlocked with SAM tiket all u need to to do is:
1. download ios 6.1
2. conect iphone > launch latest itunes > select update (if u use windows ctrl + update / if u use mac alt + update) and choose ios 6.1


Yes evasi0n only support 6.0 / 6.0.1 / 6.1


working for me with no issues, Evasion rockszzzz :)


But if I do that my phone will be deactivated!!! How can I jailbreak then???


and it will also be locked again!! How I am going to jailbreak and restore Sam tickets if I can't get past the activation screen when I do the update??


is cydia working with this jailbreak ? or there are still bugs on it ?


Can someone post a tutorial to update to 6.1 from 5.1.1 and jailbreak and also restore SAM tickets without the original Sim card to activate the phone? Pleassseee


I just updated my phone to 6.1 and now i'm stuck on the activation screen can i still do the jailbreak? please help


in my iphone 4 it's working... :)


Sureee.... just use the new version of sn0wbrezee


Just use latest version of snowbrezee and then put your SAM tickets using redsn0w

agha from Afghanistan

thanks agha from Afghanistan




i got it finally i worked with Sn0wbreeze 2.9.8 for SAM i create custom by choose Expert Mode and General + next then tick active the iphone and install ssh then next and it will create firmware custom then open itunes and restored and when its completed .
Use diskaid, iexplorer or iFile. navigate to var/root/library , delete the already placed folder "lockdown" and paste the folder you saved (activation tickets i mean).
open SAM and click on revert lockdown to stock then disable sam and the signals would show if not restart iphone that it (sorry for my english lol)


It works fine.

1. Go to Cydia
2. Install evasi0n 6.0-6.1 untether
3. Reboot


Yes, SAM tickets can be used on iOS 6.1. Just restore your activation tickets and your phone is unlocked.


Enjoy your jailbroken device.


Use iFunbox to install .ipa files.
Good luck!


Please follow all steps.


1. Back up your activation tickets using Cookie http://www.unlockboot.com/2012/04/cookie-restore-and-backup-sam-unlock.html
2. Update your phone to iOS 6.1 via iTunes
3. Jailbreak your iPhone
4. Open cydia and install Cookie
5. Restore your SAM tickets
6. Reboot


You can use pkgbackup, but firs uninstall all iOS 6.1 unsupported tweaks.

Good luck!

You need to factory unlock your phone. After this method your phone can be activated with any sim card.

question: how to upgrade jailbroken iphone 4 ios 6.0 to ios 6.1

cuz whenever i updated my iphone 4 ios 6.0 to ios 6.1 as it says in my
software updates it always says in the nearest end that Update Is
Failed. My Iphone is already a Jailbroken. I wan't to update it because
my current ios version right now is not compatible with the carrier
network that i've been using. And i've heard that 6.1 fixes those Bugs.


I have a 3GS with modem 04.26.08 running jailbreaked and unlocked ios4.0

Should I upgrade it to ios6.1 and then run evasi0n, or should I use other ways to keep the old base?
