Alright, we have
cos(Θ) cosh(Φ) -i sin(Θ) sinh(Φ)=cos(α)+i sin(α)
Form here
sin(α)=sin(Θ) sinh(Φ) <----  (1)
and 
cos(α)=cos(Θ) cosh(Φ) <-----(2)
Square (1) and (2)
sin2(α)=sin2(Θ) sinh2(Φ) <----(1')
and
cos2(α)=cos2(Θ) cosh2(Φ) <----(2')
 
Now from (1')
sin2(α)=sin2(Θ) sinh2(Φ)=
=sin2(Θ) (cosh2(Φ)-1)=
 
=|cosh2(Φ)=cos2(α)/cos2(Θ) from (2')|=
=sin2(Θ) (cos2(α)/cos2(Θ)-1)=
=tan2(Θ) *cos2(α)-sin2(Θ)=
=tan2(Θ)-tan2(Θ) *sin2(α)-sin2(Θ).
 
So, what we have is
sin2(α)=tan2(Θ)-tan2(Θ) *sin2(α)-sin2(Θ).
Now
sin2(α)(1+tan2(Θ))=tan2(Θ)-sin2(Θ)
sin2(α)=cos2(Θ)tan2(Θ)-cos2(Θ)sin2(Θ)=sin4(Θ). (**)
 
From (**) you get
sin2(Θ)=±sin(α). This is (i).
 
Hope it helps. It is hard to type here. For me it is much easier to write on a paper.
