Earlier today we told you a method for manually backing up your unlocked iPhone’s (SAM) activation ticket. It involved simply using iFile or an SSH file-system explorer program to .zip a certain directory and back it up to your computer. In case this method proved to be too difficult for you, or you only just stumbled upon this how to guide now then you are in luck! The iPhone Dev-Team have updated the one-click Jailbreaking solution, RedSn0w today to version 0.9.10b8 and in this new version comes the ability to automatically backup your iPhone’s activation ticket. Thus, in this how to guide you will learn how to use RedSn0w 0.9.10b8 to backup your unlocked iPhone’s activation ticket to preserve your unlock.
Backup Activation Ticket With RedSn0w 0.9.10b8
Step 1) – The first thing you will need to do is download RedSn0w 0.9.10b8 to your Windows or Mac OS X computer. You can do this by going to the iJailbreak Downloads Section or you can use one of the direct download links shown below.

Step 2) – Next you will need to launch RedSn0w from the directory you downloaded it to. Once RedSn0w is up and running you will simply need to go click the Extras button.
On the next page you will need to click the Even more button.
