Wink HOW TO: Activate iPhone 4, 3G, 3GS Without Original SIM or Hacktivation with SAM & Re

iPhone Dev-Team has just released redsn0w 0.9.6b6 (Windows and Mac) to jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 on iPhone 3GS/3G and update their basebands to iPad baseband 6.15.00, as most of you know that redsn0w 0.9.6b5 did that, but the new version of redsn0w 0.9.6b6 brings activation without hacktivating, or using original SIM card and increases battery life substantially, as we reported earlier, it was the most prevalent problem after unlocking iPhone 3GS/3G with ultrasn0w 1.2

Developer @sbingner (author of TetherMe) has made some excellent progress devising a new hactivation method that kills two birds with one stone for all you ultrasn0w unlockers. His tool, “Subscriber Artificial Module (SAM)” tricks your iPhone and iTunes into creating legitimate activation tickets even though you’re unlocked with ultrasn0w. This means you get the full benefit of push applications, and your battery life increases substantially. If you’d like to try it out, check out Subscriber Artificial Module
To help make it easier to try out @sbingner’s tool, we’ve updated redsn0w to include a new “Deactivate” option for the 3G and 3GS. Use this option *after* you’ve installed SAM…it will remove the normal patches made to lockdownd and let SAM take over. (sbingner plans on making a button to do this within SAMPrefs too). Great work, @sbingner!
Thanks @sbingner for the hard work, as usual we will prepare the full step by step guide, showing you how to use SAM and the newly redsn0w 0.9.6b6. Stay tuned.

Few minutes ago, a new mix-up between iPhone dev-team and sbingner, has been done to allow you to activate your iPhone 4, 3GS and 3G without using original SIM or Hactivation. Thanks to sbingner's new tool which called SAM (Subscriber Artificial Module) and redsn0w 0.9.6b6. Moreover this mix-up has fixed the battery consuming after unlocking iPhone 3GS/3G with ultrasn0w 1.2. Let's check out how use this package after the jump.

STEP 1: Download Redsn0w 0.9.6b6 for Windows and Mac, (Links at the end)

STEP 2: For iPhone 3GS/3G users follow our previous guide posted here,, (But be sure you are using Redsn0w 0.9.6b6)

STEP 3: After you finish jailbreaking your device, start Cydia and add repository.

TEP 4: Then install “SAM” and “SAMPrefs”.

STEP 5: Launch Redsn0w 0.9.6b6 again, and select “Deactivate” option.

STEP 6: Navigate to Settings > SAM and click "De-Activate iPhone"

STEP 7: Connect your iPhone to your PC then launch iTunes, allow iTunes to activate your iPhone officially. You will see this message "iPhone is activated"

According to sbingner : If iTunes says invalid SIM, you will need to manually select the appropriate carrier under one of the methods besides "Automatic" and click on a SIMID.

STEP 8: Here's the final step, go now and follow our guide posted here to unlock your device with ultrasn0w 1.2

Download Redsn0w 0.9.6b6 for Windows
