Apple Has Fixed The Loophole: SAM Will No Longer Unlock Your iPhone!

By -

Well folks this was expected. Apple has fixed the loophole that was used to unlock your iPhone no matter what firmware or baseband you were on. In simply words you won’t be able to unlock your iPhone anymore.

Maypalo reported earlier today that Apple was fixing the activation servers which were required to unlock your iPhone. During that time you could still unlock your iPhone, as iPhone dev team member musclenerd mentioned that some would “hit or miss” but after sooner everyone was going to “miss” the unlock bug.

Well it has turned out to be true.

We have reports coming in from many readers of Maypalo that SAM no longer works to unlock iPhone. Yes folks you will no longer be able to unlock your iPhone for free, until another solution comes up.

Those users who have already unlocked their iPhone should not worry as your unlock is safe. The best thing to do now is to save those activation tickets using iFile or the popular tool, redsnow.

Those of you who could not get their iPhone unlocked, especially those iPhone 4 baseband 4.11.08 users you still have options that you can use to unlock your iPhone and these are; Gevey Ultra from Applenberry, R-SIM IV from R-SIM developers and finally Rebel Pro Micro SIM.

Any thoughts?

  1. DAAMN, i just bought an iphone 4 locked by att today, i was thinking that i would unlock it with sam, but damn!!!!!!! what can i do?, im in Mexico lol

  2. Hey farhan I know i cant restore or update My iPhone in iTunes, but can i sync.. It?
    When 5.1 jailbreak arrives can i update it? I have My sam unlock tickets save.
    Please advise us, thanks

  3. Guys, I think I found a way to recover your unlocking state of your Iphone if you have your backup. (Only for AT&T users)

    This is how I did it:

    Insert an AT&T sim card, do the activation process through SAM
    After received the wildcard state, use the backup your activation
    Reboot your phone
    insert the sim card you have the activation tickets saved
    Copy your lockfile backup to the lockfile folder (overwriting the AT&T activation tickets previously received)
    go to sam and click restore
    Voila! Activation back!

    Hope it helps!!!


  4. Does this mean you wont be able to use any other sim card besides the one you already unlocked? I guess hardware unlock is still valuable.
