iPhone 4 Jailbrocken but now stuck in Activation after removing SAM
- date: November 12, 2012
This is my first post, so thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
I am relatively new to the whole jailbreaking scene (I have done so on other devices in the past but never iOS).
So anyways to get to the point, I have an iPhone 4 16GB and I managed to jailbreak the device, install Cydia and from there SAM (in an attempt to unlock the phone from its carrier) and fortunately openSSH.
The device was working fine although would not accept any SIM card, so I figured my best bet would be to reinstall SAM as I had probably messed up the configuration somewhere.
So I uninstalled SAM and Cydia rebooted the device, which now launches to the Apple Activation screen! This is a huge problem as I have no idea what carrier the phone was originally on so I cannot activate the device.
Luckily I did root the device before all this, so when it boots to activation I can still SSH into the device, so the rest of the software must still be running som
