How to jailbreak and hacktivate iOS 4.2.1 using Redsn0w 0.9.6b6&SAM

In Apple device on 07/12/2010 at 10:23 AM

As promised from the Dev-Team, Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 for both Mac and Windows had been released quickly for our “zombreaker” 🙂 According to Dev-Team blog, they successfully handled “7700 comments over just the first 12 hours (10 per minute for half a day)” Damn ! Wish my blog was like that 🙂 Another good news is from developer @sbingner, “His tool, “Subscriber Artificial Module (SAM)” tricks your iPhone and iTunes into creating legitimate activation tickets even though you’re unlocked with ultrasn0w.  This means you get the full benefit of push applications, and your battery life increases substantially” Self-explanation, eh ? In short SAM will help your iOS look like this:

And now some WARNING signs before moving on:

  • Unlocker should restrain from upgrading to 4.2.1
  • Again, new iDevices will be jailbreak as semi-tethered (required redsn0w every time your devices reboot)

I recommend you should visit Dev-Team blog, SAM website to fully understand the procedure !

What i need ?

  • Your (fully charged) iDevices with computer and iTunes 10.1
  • RedSn0w 0.9.6b6 for Windows or Mac. Or you can visit Dev-Team blog to find the links 😉
  • Your iOS 4.2.1 respective firmware from Felixbruns or you can update/restore straight from iTunes 10.1

Guide: (Source from Redmond Pie and SAM)

  • Jailbreak using RedSn0w 0.9.6b6 basically the same as 0.6.6b4. Please visit my old post:”Jailbreak iPad, iPod and iPhone 4.2.1 with Redsn0w 0.9.6b4″ to successfully jailbreak your iDevices.
  • I need to remind you that every time your iDevice reboot or stuck at Apple logo (4.2.1 jailbreak), please repeat step 8 to 10 from my guide to be able to run your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch.
  • Once your iPhone boot up, run Cydia and add new repohttp://repo.bingner.com”
  • Wait for the reloading and install “SAM” and “SAMPrefs”
  • Run RedSn0w again, select “Deactivate”, next…
  • Navigate to Settings > SAM and click “De-Activate iPhone”
  • Start iTunes, connect your iPhone, wait for  the activation.

Note: If iTunes says invalid SIM, you will need to manually select the appropriate carrier under one of the methods besides “Automatic” and click on a SIMID.
