Procedure to unlock iPhone on iOS 7
This is a step-by-step guide which will help you unlock iPhone on iOS 7 for free. But do note that some people might find this guide a bit hard. For those of you who are not sure how to attempt this guide, I suggest you wait until Redsnow or Snowbreeze gets updated to do this process automatically.
There are currently two methods to unlock the iPhone using the SAM activation tickets. Both have been proven to work; you can try whichever one you prefer as their difficulty level is almost the same. This guide will only mention one method, the other method will be published on Maypalo.com after a few days (due to Mobile Substrate not being fully updated).
Note: As iOS 7 jailbreak was released unexpectedly; the Mobile Substrate has not been full updated for iOS 7, so you might face some errors while attempting this guide. If you face some problems I suggest you wait until Cydia has been updated with the new Mobile Substrate, and then attempt this unlocking procedure again.

STEP 3: Tap the edit button on the right hand corner and select Lockdown folder.
STEP 4: Now create a backup using the zip button and delete the lockdown folder.
