Yesterday was a great day for iPhone unlockers. Soon after the unlock method was unveiled, iPhone Dev Team released a new version of redsn0w, which now allows users who unlocked their iPhone using SAM method to make a backup of the activation key. Having the key will be useful in the future even if Apple fixes this method.
Check the video tutorial after the break.
From the iPhone Dev Team’s blog
redsn0w 0.9.10b8 adds the ability to backup arbitrary directories or files from your device into a zip file on your Mac or PC. The new button is Extras->Even More->Backup and it requires your device to be jailbroken with the afc2 service enabled (most jailbreaks include that). By default it will backup your activation records from /var/root/Library/Lockdown, which is useful for everyone taking advantage of today’s SAM unlock using Loktar_Sun’s trick (more on that in a later post!).
The 0.9.10b8b update to redsn0w makes the zip files more compatible with the native Windows explorer (which doesn’t like leading slashes in the filenames).
