Use Saved Unlock Activation/Baseband Tickets To Unlock iPhone In Case Of A Restore: Cookie

By -

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?

    Well, for me it does, and does _good_, I did some tricks and as I saved my unlock tickets from two carriers in my country, I just restored them using SSH, then installed Cookie, and saved both of them, huh, now I can switch between SIMs and it seamlesly changes from movistar to Uff!, without any issue.

    Thank GOD for Locktar_Sun who gave me this chance, I’d be another looser complaining about my iPhone locked.

    Great I’m happy, happy with my unlocked gizmo.

  2. I save my activation tickets and downloaded cookie, but I keep getting sim card not supported. It resprings my device after I press attempt activation and everything. Can anyone put a tutorial on how to load activation tickets using cookie? I’m lost.

  7. I had lost my unlock but did run again using the dropbox and ifile, also downloaded and saved the cookie by it too, everything is working perfectly, my doubt is the following, as did the SAM for the first time I sent an email to myself lockdown of my chip, the doubt is that the following will serve only to unlock this chip or not, the IMSI is saved with it I can unlock other chips or not?
