Hey folks, most of you may already have unlocked your iPhones using all new SAM method but a lot of people are still stuck on some difficult steps and getting errors like “SIM Card not supported”. As we told you that Sam Bingner is working on an update which will make this process a lot easier and folks guess what? he just did it. The process is as simple as it can get now almost every one of you can unlock your iPhone the easy way. You won’t need any iTunes activation or any sort of connection to your computer, you can do it wireless, on the go and whenever you want. Yup no more SIM card issues.
Before we jump on to the guide I would like to make it clear that it is still unclear whether your iPhone would stay unlocked for a long time or not but we will keep an eye on Apple’s patch and we will keep you informed if the company patches the security hole in activation server but to be on the safe side we recommend you all to stay away from iTunes’ Restore or Update buttons.
So here’s how you can unlock your iPhone using SAM without iTunes to avoid SIM card errors.
Couple of things which you should know:
- If you’ve already unlocked your iPhone, do not try this because it’s the same process but it’s automated now
- This process does not involve much user interaction so it can take a little while (3-6 minutes)
- You would also need to delete your current activation records by deleting Lockdown folder from /var/root/Library
- Just to make sure that you’ve deleting SAM preferences go to /var/mobile/Library/Preferences and search for SAM if you see any preferences related to SAM then delete them
Step 1: Delete SAM if you’ve already installed it and refresh Cydia in order to download SAM’s latest version to unlock your iPhone
Step 2: Now insert the SIM card whic you want to unlock (remember that this is the SIM card which you wish to use on your iPhone)
Step 3: Once installed, SAM will create a new icon on your SpringBoard by the name of SAMPrefs, tap that
Step 4: Now go to Utilities and tap on Attempt Activation, SAM will now start working (remember that this process may take a little while) once complete your iPhone will respring
Viola, you will have your iPhone unlocked without any iTunes connection or errors. I hope this answers a lot of questions.
