Unlock Your Jailbroken iPhone With SAM

A new unlock method for jailbroken iPhones has just been announced and released, for those of you still in contract that can’t yet take advantage of AT&T’s unlock offer. This method uses Sam Binger’s Subscriber Artificial Module (SAM) package in Cydia. By following the steps below, you can unlock your phone (as confirmed by Musclenerd).

1. Download and install Sam Bingner’s SAM (Subscriber Artificial Module). You should add the repo “”.

2. Locate the SAMPrefs icon on your Springboard and open it.

3. Enter utilities ad choose to “De-Activate iPhone”.

4. Go to the “Method” section, select “By Country and Carrier”, and choose your carrier.

5. Tap “More Information”, and taking note of your IMSI in the “SAM Details” section, continue to “Spoof Real SIM to SAM”.

6. Go back to the main screen and change the “Method” to manual. Then enter the IMSI from step 5.

7. Plug your phone into iTunes and double click on “Phone Number” to make sure that the ICCID matches that of your SIM card, then unplug your iPhone.

8. Disable SAM.

9. Plug your iPhone back in, and restart iTunes if it says your phone cannot be activated.

10. Thats it! If you have issues with push notifications just use the “Clear Push” utility in SAM and reconnect to iTunes.

Following those steps above, you should be able to unlock your phone to work on any GSM network. Leave a comment if it worked for you!

Pod2g Has Bypassed ASLR, One Step Closer to the Jailbreak

In an exciting bit of news earlier today, pod2g announced that he has overcome yet another barrier that was preventing him from finishing the jailbreak. ASLR (Address Space Layout Randomization) is a security measure introduced by Apple in recent versions of iOS. One result of this new method of security is difficulty in developing jailbreaks. Therefore, since Apple has begun implementing this new feature, it has been the effort of jailbreakers to bypass it.

Now, the battle has been won, and we are moving forward to another untethered jailbreak. We still don’t have an ETA, but this has been a long awaited step in the jailbreak community, and will hopefully make future jailbreaks that much easier.

FastLock – Quick Functions on your Lockscreen

FastLock is a newly released jailbreak tweak, which allows the user to quickly access certain parts of their phone by simply double tapping the home button twice. You gain the ability to compose a tweet, text, phone someone, send an email and some others. For the price of $0.99, the premise of this tweak is quite nice. Of course, it has been done before, this is just another variation on the same idea. However, I say nothing wrong with that!
