  • Unlock Your Jailbroken iPhone With SAM Today!


    You can unlock your jailbroken iPhone right now thanks to an iPhone hacker called Loktar_Sun. The iPhone unlock relies on a project made by iOS developer Sam Bingner dubbed SAM, which stands for Subscriber Artificial Module. Loktar_Sun used SAM in an unexpected way, reusing the IMSI obtained in an early step by adding it to a later step. Renowned iPhone hacker MuscleNerd has confirmed via his Twitter that this unlock method works with his iPhone 4S:



    Instructions for performing your unlock can be found from this link as MuscleNerd Tweeted earlier. According to Sam Bingner, this unlock method grabs a legitimate ticket from Apple and does some information spoofing to unlock your iPhone. Sam was able to confirm that it also works with the iPhone 4. While the instructions are currently a little long, Sam says he is working on a package to make it much more simple and straightforward as we speak.



    To download the correct SAM package, be sure to add the following repository to your iPhone in Cydia by tapping on the Manage tab, then the Sources button, then tapping Edit, then tapping Add:
    PHP Code:
    repo.bingner.com 
    MuscleNerd tells us that the unlock must be performed with each SIM individually. The activation ticket on the iPhone needs to match that of the SIM it was generated with, so you won't be able to switch between SIM cards on the fly unless you unlock them one by one by repeating this process. This is where the factory unlocked iPhone has an advantage.

    MuscleNerd also states that if Apple fixes this unlock method, your unlock should still be valid.

      To alleviate some confusion, you DO need your original sim, OR a valid IMSI code!

      iPhone 4 AT&T with 5.0.1 work 1st time (auto detect, not country and carrier). I can switch between t-Mobile sim and AT&T with NO PROBLEM at all, no need to reboot needed

      Couldn't get iPhone 4s on verizon and sprint on 5.0.1 to work...yet.

      Do I need the original carrier SIM card at all? Or just the new one?

      You need a valid IMSI code. That can be obtained from ANY sim on the original, official carrier.
      If you need it, I put up a link to an eBay listing where you can cheaply get a valid IMSI. It can be found on the Youtube video's page.

      I have an iPhone 4 with T-mobile sim, have been using Gevey with it, not able to "deactivate phone". Only "activate" appears after clicking deactivate, restarting, etc. Any ideas from anyone? Thanks!

      Yelp, this is GREAT! I no longer have to fear rebooting my phone! My gevey ultra was so unstable. I've rebooted so much today just to see t-mobile pop up without having to go through all the gevey unlocking crap! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

      I then did the Revert Lockdownd to Stock, this unactivated the phone, but iTunes says the sim card is not supported. Did I do something wrong on Sam?

      Sprint 4S work now, but can't switch back to Sprint. Work with T-Mobile tho.
      Can't get the Verizon 4S to work as there's no Verizon US in the bundle part

      Verizon 4S working now with T-Mobile Instead of bundle, using countries and carriers and use the 1st SIM id.

      I got this working on two of my iphone 4s 4.11.08 and 4.12, but my 4S is pretty much bricked at the moment. Anyone have any suggestions? I tried to restore via DFU but I get itunes error 1600
