    1. download latest redns0w

    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)

    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?

  • kenzo

    I don’t think its possible

  • kenzo

    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!!

  • dacatz

    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

  • dacatz

    Yes evasi0n only support 6.0 / 6.0.1 / 6.1

  • kenzo

    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??

    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)

    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.
