Redsn0w 0.9.10b8 released to aid in SAM Unlock ticket saving
A minor Redsn0w update was released today, Redsn0w 0.9.10b8 adds an option to backup arbitrary files and directories on your iPhone and then compresses them into a single zip folder. For those who have been using our SAM iPhone unlock tutorial, this new feature is a great way to back up your unlock ticket after you have performed the tutorial.
Step 1: With your device connected, open up the newest version of Redsn0w and select "Extras" and then select "Even More."
Step 2: Now choose the new option, "Backup" which will prompt you to enter the filesystem path of the files/directories you want to backup.
Step 3: By default, the directory to backup your unlock ticket is already entered into the field. In case it is not or it has changed, the directory is "/var/root/Library/Lockdown" so enter that into Redsn0w and hit "OK."
Step 4: Once you have clicked OK, Redsn0w will automatically save the backup of your unlock ticket to the same directory "/var/root/Library/Lockdown" in a timestamped zip file and you're all set! Now even if Apple patches this loophole, you will still be able to unlock using your backed up unlock ticket.
