    to threader I had the same problems you need to use previous version of redsnow then simply choose the options multitasking enabled and battery percentage, just choose one of these options re-jailbreak and the iphone
    will hacktivate your device. after the phone has rebooted you will
    see you still have all your programs from cydia and itunes still on your device and it will sync your device, hope this helps bacause it helped me when I was in the same position oh also open SAM and it will say factory unlocked , so no wildcard message. I just turn off data and set mail to fetch also location services off when I'm not using these and battery is acting like it should good luck

    what i did after is simply run latest redsn0w again with none of the option checked, iphone hacktivated again..but the battery problem is severe, man. charging like every 3 hours. I hope there will be a fix on SAM later on. or maybe a more thorough instruction just in case the fault is on me.

    but i works for others strange I even tried setting it to my carrier
    country and SIM number nothing.

    Question iphone 4
    I have a new iphone 4 32gb on 4.1 /2.10 that I received as a gift from my brother. I am trying to activate it through itunes but they are asking for my brothers social and zip, but I cant do that because he cant have his 3gs be turned off.Can I jailbreak and run sam to get past the activation issues Im having?? And then use it with another AT&t account?

    Okay I have a Question now.

    1) I got an iPhone 3G[S] NEW BootROM on 4.1 - Jailbroken (sn0wbreeze) and Unlocked (ultrasn0w).
    2) PushDoctor installed and YouTube & Push notifications work fine.
    3) I don't experience a battery drain or connection loss.
    4) Also when I installed SAM & SAMPrefs, it shows the Activation State as : "FactoryActivated".
    5) I've Hacktivated through sn0wbreeze though.
    6) My Carrier has launched iPhone 3G[S] Officially in my country only for Postpaid customers. But I didn't buy my iPhone through them and I'm using their Prepaid SIM.
    7) So my Question is, Should I use SAM and SAMPrefs and Will installing it improve my battery & overall Performance any further than it is now?

    #3 & #7) Are you experincing battery drain now? If no, don't fix what's not broken.

    Yeah, this SAM thing is only for those who have "upgraded" to 4.2 and are using the tethered jailbreak.

    It is actually for the people who updated their baseband to 6.15.00 and hacktivated.

    Uh-oh - that's good to know. Does that mean that downgrading to 4.l won't help me with the battery issue, since I'm stuck with 6.15.00 regardless?

    Hactivation .vs. Activation. Nothing to do with tethered/untethered.

    Ya, you will probably still see the issues on 4.1 if you hacktivate

    I'm already unlocked, but it was by greenpo1son and not redsn0w. Will this still work for me or do I have to restore and unlock using redsn0w? I'm on firmware 4.1, does it even apply to me? Everyone is so confusing.

    I assume they're working on one. Meanwhile I just downgraded to 4.1 to get rid of the hassle of booting tethered.

    This new Cydia feature is
    applicable to my iDevice ?

    Option #2: my custom stockify program - works on any phone 3.0+
    With SAM and SAMPrefs installed; install openssh and secure shell into your phone. Run "stockify" and it will revert your lockdownd to a stock lockdownd
    Reboot your phone
    What the heck is 'Stockify' can't seem to find it anywhere... Can some one enlighten me?

    See my post elsewhere in this thread for a link to better instructions.

    Now that I finally got this working, the difference is like night and day. It took a while, but it's worth it.
