SAM unlock, which might be considered to be one of the best free unlocking solutions of all time, was a blessing in disguise to all those who were waiting for an unlock solution to the infamous baseband 4.11.08/4.12.01. That loophole which was found by hacker Loktar Sun could unlock any iPhone on any baseband!

Well unfortunately for many, that loophole was closed shortly, leaving hundreds of thousands of users stuck with locked iPhone’s. But those lucky ones who have saved unlock activation tickets can follow the guide below on how to activate iPhone on iOS 6.0.1.

Before you attempt this guide, let me remind you that you DO NEED ACTIVATION TICKETS for this method to work. If you don’t have them well you can try factory unlock solutions.

Guide To Unlock iPhone On iOS 6.0.1


  • iPhone jailbroken on iOS 6.0.1 You can use redsnow 0.9.13b3 to jailbreak your iPhone.
  • Saved SAM unlock activation tickets.

Guide Works On:

  • iPhone 4 (tested)
  • iPhone 4S (not tested but will work)
  • iPhone 3GS (tested)

Procedure To Unlock iOS 6

STEP 1:  Download redsnow (from above link) and head over to Extras > Even More > Tickets

STEP 2: Once you click Tickets , simply select the file when you created a backup for your activation tickets.

Note: If you back up your activation tickets manually you can simply select the plist file.

STEP 3: Redsnow will show a message saying that tickets are being uploaded.

STEP 4: Once completed, reboot your device (this is a tethered boot so you will need to “Just Boot” this time).

STEP 5: Now insert the SIM card that was associated with the unlock activation ticket.

That is it folks, you will now have an activated (unlocked) iPhone running on iOS 6.0.1.
