Hey folks,

I wonder if the activation tickets I saved for my iPhone 4 several months ago are connected to the baseband version I had at the time I saved the tickets. I was (and still am) on iOS 5.0.1 (BB 04.10.01) when I did the SAM Unlock.

Do I have to create a cfw (will evasion be ablte to create cfws?) or can I update regularly in iTunes (and update my BB) to use my SAM activation tickets with iOS 6.1?

Thanks for help and experiences ;)

No they are not tied to the baseband. Just back up those activation tickets and copy em to multiple locations xD

They are tied to the device and sim card. You can't change either of those.

I doubt evasi0n will do custom ipsws but you can preserve the baseband with redsn0w if it makes you more comfortable.

That's great news! Thanks for the information! I hope you are 101% sure :D :D

I can use latest redsn0w to restore the tickets (pointing at the .plist in Lockdown folder) or even put the Lockdown folder manually in var/root/Library, right?

I don't need to install SAMprefs again, do I?

Thanks :)

I used to have a SAM unlocked phone so I did manually test the upgrading the baseband. and yes, the rest sounds right ;)

Can confirm that SAM tickets work on UPDATED baseband on IOS 7?
