How to Backup Your iPhone Unlock Ticket

1 comment:
These are instructions on how to backup your iPhone unlock ticket after unlocking with SAM. It's very important you do this to ensure continued unlock of your SIM in the future.

If you haven't already unlocked using SAM, you can follow this unlock tutorial.

Step One
Launch Cydia from your SpringBoard.


Step Two
Choose Sections from the tabs at the bottom of the screen.


Step Three
Select System from the list of sections.


Step Four
Press to select iFile from the list of packages.


Step Five
Press the Install button at the top right of the screen.


Step Six
Press Confirm to begin installation.


Step Seven
Once the installation has completed successfully, press the large Return to Cydia button.


Step Eight
Press the Home button then launch iFile from your SpringBoard.


Step Nine
Press the Back button at the top left of your screen to navigate to /var.


Step Ten
Choose root from the list of folders in /var.


Step Eleven
Tap to select Library from the list of folders in /var/root.


Step Twelve
Press the Edit button at the top right of the screen.


Step Thirteen
Choose Lockdown from the list of folders. Then press the zip icon in the tab bar. It's the second from the left.


Step Fourteen
Name your archive so you know what SIM card its for. Then press the Create button.


Step Fifteen
Choose the archive we created from the list of files. Then press the mail icon in the tab bar. It's the third from the right.


Step Sixteen
Email yourself the archive. Be sure to keep it in a safe place!



IMPORTANT:
You should perform the unlock procedure and this backup procedure for every SIM you want to use with your iPhone.

Alternatively, if you do not want to use iFile, you can simply SSH into the directory above and copy that file over to your computer. Be sure to save it in a safe place! If you are not sure on how to SSH, we have a [Windows] tutorial and a [Mac] tutorial.
