  9. Hello,
    Tested with Ipad Air 2 (IOS 10.1.1), wifi not greyed anymore, just follow instructions above. For jailbreak i used yalu beta and cydia impactor (cydia may not work at the first try, just don’t give up!). for trusting developer app you will have to connect to a phone with bluetooth tethering enabled (i used an android phone on KitKat).

    Thank you alot Pavel ! (finally it works after an accidentally update in October 2016!)

    1. Hey after you jumped the iPad Air 2,did you use wi if only iPad software?or did you just let iTunes download the new software?

      1. Hey, Ipad was on ios 9.3.3 (Wifi-Only) when the hardware modification was done. i’ve then (accidentally) updated to ios 10.1.1 (when it was signed yet, itunes downloaded wifi version) => Wifi Lost. I’ve stopped any upgrade since October waiting for a jailbreak to be released. If you’re in the same case, i suggest you to keep the actual ios (wifi version, or at least the oldest signable ios) until the release of it’s jailbreak and manually add drivers.

        Hope it helps

  10. Hi. I unlock iPad Air 1 1475 but after restore audio is not working. If I put my ear near the case I can hear something like scratches. It is impossible to short circuit the audio ic . I have done this 100 times with air 1.

  13. Hi Pavel,
    I have iPad Air 2 with 9.3.5, I update to 10.2 and wait jailbreak or stay on 9.3.5 and wait a jailbreak? Wifi and bluetooth driver will work on 10.2?

    Thank You

      1. hi, how you make jailbrake at 10.2 iOS ??, because only see jailbrake for iPhone 6s and iPad pro !!, please helpme, Thanks

    Tanks Pavel

  15. Hi Pavel, I found your blog and I feel like I am very close to solving my problem. I have just sent a donation of $5.
    And I have some questions, if you could answer them, please.
    I’ve got iPad mini 1 A1455 with broken baseband modem (it just stopped working and disappeared from Settings – empty field). After upgrade from iOS 7 to iOS 9.3.5 the iPad is not starting any more. Each restore attempt fails. In the log it is visible that it cannot pass to the second stage because of communication problem with the baseband.
    Now my questions is whether you feel your methode will help and I’ll be able to restore to iOS 9.3.5. So it is not only if that would help the iPad to “forget” it has a baseband, but also if your solution will work with iOS 9.3.5.
    Many thanks in advance!
    And I hope you’ll be able to recover with your hand soon!

    1. Hi

      Thank you for donation.

      First time this method was found on old ipads where is modem is a separate board. People disconnected broken baseband, got error and than they tried to change board id and this solved problem.

      So, this method can help. Need to try

    1. Hello.

      I prefer open OS on mobile devices with expansion ports. So I use only Android. And they are cheaper.

      No sence in auto updating. You are already lucky with unlocked iPad. Do not tempt fate. 😉

  16. Hi friend, I removed the resistor r1204 on the ipad mini a1455 and the ipad does not light that I should acer friend the ipad if it restores with wifi model but it does not light

    1. You accidentally shorted out a backlight coil, IC, and/or filter. Its a common mistake that occurs when metal touches or comes close enough to cause a discharge and short out the delicate components.
      In order to repair it you will need to have SMD soldering skills. You can find people on ebay to repair it for you.

  17. Hello people 🙂

    Happy New Year!

    As you know I made long time surgery on my hand. And not all went good. Then there was the 2 months of rehabilitation. It turned out that the doctor hurt something in my hand. 🙁

    Now I have new problems and maybe will do few surgeries. So at this time I am not able contribute something new. I’m a bit in decline because of all these problems, which excruciate me for several years. 🙁

    I hope all will be fine. 🙂

  18. Bro you r rock….i’ve tried ipad 2 n ipad 3 method its relly work….will donate soon n following your community…cheers bro

  24. Hello. I have ipad 2 model A1396 with ios9.2.1. Its icloud locked. Im interested in if i bypass icloud by the way that you say will it works with all?? I mean will gsm works??

  25. All icloud locked Ipads that are not cellular can be unlocked now. The service is offered on ebay by more then one seller. Some how they are able to bypass icloud with only the serial number of the wifi Ipad.

  26. My iPad is on iOS 9.3.5 and I wait Jailbreak of iOS 9.3.5 for fix it. My Wifi is currently grey’d out. Somone know when jaibreak of iOS 9.3.5 will be release for replace wifi driver of my iPad Air 2? Thanks Michel Stephane

    1. Yes its normal, because iPad Wifi don’t have GPS. After the unlock, your iPad becomes a ipad wifi, so you lose GPS.

  27. hello , you have find any solution for ipad air 2 unlock it from icloud and fix the wifi on ios 9.3.4?? ipad is stuck on dfu mode with ios 9.3.1 but after restore from itunes the ios 9.3.3 show error 3194 , maybe last firmuware relase is 9.3.5 and , 93.4 can instal only in ipad.
    who can help us?


    1. ok, you have to restore to 9.3.5, but do it quickly. Then downgrade to 9.3.4. This will only work as long as apple has signed 9.3.4 and who knows how long that will last. After that, maybe semi jailbreak and try to replace wifi driver files after that? I’m not sure… But I WAS able to downgrade to 9.3.4 from 9.3.5. If there was only a way to trick iTunes into thinking 9.3.3 was signed…

    1. Hi

      People don’t donate in this year. So, lets they make bypass for new devices themself 🙁

      If you made high detailed photos I will share this photo to other people. Maybe somebody will spend time to make bypass

      1. Pavel – I am broke, otherwise I would help by donating. Instead, I will help by sharing my success or failure with the community. When I get some money, I will donate. Thank you.

        1. My iPad Air 2 is on iOS 9.3.5 version, how can I do jailbreak for replace Wifi driver or do downgrade to iOS 9.3.2, Does the jailbreak iOS 9.3.5 has a chance to get out?
