These are instructions on how to hactivate your iPhone using Subscriber Artificial Module (SAM) by sbingner.

You will need to jailbreak normally before performing these steps.

It wont let me add this source it says. Did not Find repository. The indicated repository could not be found. This could be because you are trying to add a legacy Installer repository ( these are not supported). Also, this interface is only capable of working with exact repository URLs. HELP!

I did as instructed. (I didn't even need to select a manual carrier -- iTunes immediately activated it as soon as I plugged in the iPhone.) The SAM Settings showed "Wildcard Activated". I rebooted, reinstalled boxcar, sent out a test email. But push notifications still don't work. I have an iPhone 3GS running 4.3.1 with baseband 04.26.08, jailbreaked with PwnageTool and unlocked with ultrasn0w.

I have an iphone 3gs v 4.0 (8A293) BB 05.13.04 it was jailbroken using jailbreakme.com. I also have the battery drain issue after it was unlocked using ultrasnow. Do I just search for SAM in Cydia and install it on my phone? Or do I have to re-jailbreak and unlock my phone again? Thanks.

Hi, I followed all 32 steps on this post with a 3G on the TMobile network. Everything worked until the final step, the phone never activated. Now, when I plug the phone into iTunes it's not seen unless in DFU mode. If I try to 'alt' select my saved IPSW file, iTunes gives me error messages 1600, 1604, 0r 1610. I'm working on a Mac, so the option to use IREB is not available to me as far as I know. I would really appreciate some help!

Are u trying to restore to Custom Firmware or Official IPSW?

Hey all. Thanks for the tutorial. I did as said, and everything in the iPhone is working perfectly, more battery, push applications and so on. The unlock keeps working as before SAM, but iTunes still does not recognize my SIM. I tried with bundle name, and country and carrier, but itunes stays stuck in the non-compatible sim, Any help? please?

Hi, already have my ipgone 3G iOS 4.1 activated using a custom firmware, unfortunately experience the quick battery drain issue and that is why i decided to apply BINGNER solution. Followed the steps showed from here, unfortunately now my phone carrier detection is very intermittent due to frequent searching state. already tried to set it in manual mode but still have the same result.

Hey there! I'm trying to hacktivate my iphone 3gs 4.2.1 but my network doesn't permit to do it... Itunes says that my iphone should be damaged because it cannot be activated...

You need to hacktivate with redsn0w or pwnagetool as usual and then do the steps in this tutorial....

While we are grateful for this in theory, the execution is dreadful. The app has been updated three times in 24 hours and for me, while I have activated my phone in iTunes by selecting a different carrier in SAMPrefs, I still get told in applications that Notifications are turned off, even though I have them turned on. The developer's page is less than useful so we are the blind leading the blind. A lesson here that these things are released when the developer has them working, not when they are ready for millions of users worldwide.

Agreed.... i still don't know if is it possible to do this or how can i do this on an iPhone 2G (on the website it says that is possible on any phone +3.0 fw)

My iPhone is f/w 4.0.1 jailedbreak from jailbreakme.com can I install SAM and run redsnow to de-activate it? Or do I have to jailbreak it again this time using redsnow once I installed SAM?
Zero
Zero - December 6, 2010 at 9:20am
To use jailbreakme.com you need to be activated on an authorized carrier so there is no need to use SAM for you
Nels
Nels - December 6, 2010 at 9:38am
Ok, right now I'm on f/w 4.0.1 jailbeak from www.jailbreakme.com and I'm going to update to f/w 4.1 then jailbreak using limerain. Do I need to install SAM first before I update to 4.1? Oh, my phone is a 3Gs and is from AT&T but they're not my carrier just to let you know. Please advice!

Zero - December 6, 2010 at 9:56am
You can update to iOS 4.1 and you need to install SAM AFTER the restore.... If you use LimeRa1n to jailbreak your iDevice you need to be activated first. Use redsn0w (Mac / PC) or PwnageTool (Mac) since you are indeed hacktivated. LimeRa1n doesn't support hacktivation so if you try to restore to a stock iOS you will get stuck in the activation screen. Did you saved your SHSH blobs using Cydia or TinyUmbrella???

Nels - December 6, 2010 at 3:39pm
Is redsnow or pwange tethered or untethered?
Nels
Nels - December 6, 2010 at 5:26pm
Can I jailbreak 4.1 using redsnow because I only saw limerain or greenpoison and is redsnow untethered?

No it just work in 3G & 3GS in 4.x.x firmware

And what about this?? # Option #3: my custom stockify program - works on any phone 3.0+ (same as #1) 1. With SAM and SAMPrefs installed; install openssh and secure shell into your phone. Run "stockify" and it will revert your lockdownd to a stock lockdownd 2. Reboot your phone

Grabbed my unlocked iPhone 4 with my AT&T GoPhone SIM in it, installed SAM and SAMPrefs via Cydia. Opened redsn0w 0.9.6b6, opened 4.1 firmware, and saw no "Deactivate" LOST MY SERVICE WITH SAM INTALLED....removed SAM, now I have service, but still bad battery life. ANY IDEAS???

tsutekh - December 6, 2010 at 12:58pm
You have an unlocked phone, you have no need for SAM; this is to activate using other carriers' SIM....

Does it necessary to activate using SAM on an ultrasn0w unlocked iPhone which had already activated by an official AT&T sim card?

Realy would like to know: I have an factory unlocked iPhone (belgium). I have jailbroken it and all seams to be working perfectly well. I suppose 'Push' is working. Do I need SAM?
