    I can do this anytime right, as long as I jailbreak. I'm not jailbroken right now, but I just updated to 4.3.1 and still waiting for the phone to unlock. I plan on doing a full restore once its unlocked and jailbreak it.

    When using SAM where does it save the Backup Activation? or how does it work exactly

    SAM saves the activation on sbingner's server. It then calls it from the server when you want to restore.

    I'd like it more if I could save that file locally. I HATE relying on other people's servers.
    Hmm...

    There's a directory on the phone called

    /private/var/root/Library/Lockdown/activation_records

    Maybe it's kept in there as well.

    Code:
    My-iPhone:/Library root# ls -ltRF /private/var/root/Library/Lockdown
    /private/var/root/Library/Lockdown:
    total 24
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 7391 Apr 17 05:52 data_ark.plist
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel  102 Mar  2 06:21 activation_records/
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel  102 Mar  2 06:20 escrow_records/
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel  102 Mar  2 06:20 pair_records/
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel  887 Mar  2 06:20 device_private_key.pem

    Bingner told me you can use this URL to download it :
    http://www.bingner.com/actinfo.cgi?udid=<YOURUDID>&newformat=true

    UDID is retrieved within iTunes clicking on Serial number of the device.



    Hope this helps.

    PS : future release may allow to save these datas during an itunes sync...

    Awesome, all we have to do is dump that file back into /private/var/root/Library/Lockdown/activation_records, reboot and should be good to go should the need arise.

    This apparently doesnt work with phones that have been jailbroken with sn0wbreeze or has a custom firmware with hacktivation! Please make sure your iPhone has factory firmware installed before you submit your imei!
    So does this procedure not work if it is jailbroken at all with Sn0wbreeze or only if it is jailbroken with Sn0wbreeze and hacktivation used?

    And does anybody has experience with this method in combination with custom firmware?

    As long as SAM is installed and configured it's okay, just don't leave Hacktivation on.

    I have an iphone 4 with custom firmware 4.3.1 and bb 02.10.04 AT&T (including AT&T sim for activation).

    I should install SAM and be sure Hacktivation is 'off'. And then request for a unlock with wirelessfreedom (after payment off course). And then it should work??

    I also could update with official firmware, but I would rather keep my older BB in case the phone would be locked again in future (you'll never know what happens ).

    Sry for asking, but I want to be sure before using this rather expensive solution.

    Maybe Apple figured it out, or else they shut down the database until they figure it out.

    Well that facebook link doesn't mean anything to me. Never heard of these people. Just another guy with an iphone blog, hardly a reputable source of information.

    Negri is also stating temporarily discontinued but with no information.



    I was playing around with sam today.. Yesterday I got a wildcard_activation.plist file which was encrypted. Today I downloaded the file for the same UDID and got an unecrypted file called Backup.plist. It is very different in content form the wildcard file. What's up with this?

    There is a minor update for SAM today, maybe it is related?

    If you don't understand why this is far superior you should read the rest of the thread. Stick with a Gevey and enjoy expired TMSI.

    The two unlocks are two different types of unlocks with different levels of stability and reliability. The price of the unlock compared to the Gevey justifies it to be permanent. Gevey is not a permanent solution and needs to be re-bought for every new update available with a baseband upgrade.

    Although Gevey is nothing compared to the factory unlock, we don't know if it's permanent. Apple can easily find out who the distributor is by following AT&T IMEIs that were unlocked. They can then blacklist the carrier and relock all the IMEIs. There would be nothing any of us could do. That is unless SAMprefs would negate all of this. Anyway, only time will tell. Being out $10 now is nothing compared to $150+. To each their own, and I suppose no one should really be comparing the two.
