    Default How to prevent redsn0w from hacktivating an iPhone on official carrier SIM?

    I've heard that redsn0w provides an opt-out for hacktivating if we're connecting an iPhone already activated on an official carrier. I see no such option in redsn0w_mac_0.9.10b1. Am I missing it?

    (The context is that I'm intending to use an iPhone 4 on AT&T with pod2g's untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak for non-A5 devices.)

    I think you're missing it -- make sure you check the 'Deactivate' checkbox. Just looked on my Mac and the option is there. It'll then activate normally through iTunes.

    That said, I don't believe redsn0w hacktivates if it detects an already activated device. I just upgraded to 5.0.1, ran redsn0w, and my phone is still legitimately activated -- not hacktivated.

    Did you check "deactivate" in this case?

    I'm being careful because it worries me that I'd have to deactivate and reactivate my phone just to preserve the official carrier activation.

    I didn't -- I just left it at Install Cydia and went from there. Didn't have to plug back in to reactivate, and push notifications seem to still be working. I could install SAM if I really wanted to verify, but I think all is right with the world. I threw a tweet at the dev team to ask them if it detected existing activation and will let you know what I hear back.
