As you might already be aware that Apple has patched the loophole that was used to unlock iPhone and as a result you can no longer unlock your iPhone. So that’s the end of the unlock? Well not exactly. Read ahead to find out.
It’s not exactly the end of the unlock for those users who managed to unlock their iPhone and saved those precious activation/baseband tickets. Many were wondering what was the point of saving the tickets when you already had the unlock. Well folks those activation/baseband tickets are used whenever you need to restore your iPhone.
The need to restore an iPhone can arise any time, but when you restore it (without those activation tickets) you will lose your unlock status and will be back to a locked iPhone. So to save yourself from these hassle you can now restore the iPhone without losing your unlock. This is where the Cookie jailbreak cydia app comes in.
There was already a method to use those SAM activation tickets using iFile but that is quite complicated and now thanks to a developer Danniez the whole process is as simply as tapping a button.
Go to Cydia and search for Cookie and install the tweak which is available for free in the BigBoss repo. Once installed it will be available on your springboard. Tap on it and tap “Backup Activation”. As simple as that. You will need to do this whenever you restore your iPhone.
This is definitely one of those must have tweaks if you rely on unlocking your iPhone. So what do you think?
