How to Enable Push Notifications on Jailbroken iPhone - Easy Way

Jailbreaking is pretty common now, majority of iPhone users jailbreak their device knowing that Apple voids warranty if they find that the device was jailbroken. But is Jailbreaking really worth losing warranty???

Jailbreaking allows users to get the most out of their iDevice. Jailbreaking adds different features which apple lacks. You can also install Paid apps and games for free if your device is jailbroken. 

With Pro's there are Con's too

Jailbreaking makes iPhone do more things than it was designed to do. But with Advantages there are also some disadvantages. One of the disadvantages is that it disables Push Notifications.

When we jailbreak and unlock our device, We don't go through Apple's legitimate iTunes Activation that's the reason we lose Push notifications. 

But Don't worry there are solutions to this problem. Jailbreak community released various packages which can fix push notifications and they were; Push fix, Push Doctor etc.

Push fix works very well but its a Paid package - Not everyone wants to pay. Push Doctor is Free and Working way but you'll need a unique cert file - Certs are Free but sometimes you'll have to wait since they usually run out of certs.
There is another way which helps you get legitimate iTunes activation certificates; SAM (Subscriber Artificial Module). For Push doctor you'll need to add an artificial certificate file but Thanks to SAM you can get legitimate iTunes Certificate files.


How to Enable Push Notifications using SAM
