How bypass iCloud on iPads Cellular with help of easy hardware method

Apple devices (for example iPads) have some part on logic board which called Board_id. Board_id is responsible for how device identifies itself. For iPad there are several possible configurations: Apple TV, Apple iPhone, Apple iPad Cellular, Apple iPad WiFi only.

When Apple’s iCloud servers bloсked iPads they do this in 2 ways:

  • iPad WiFi only will be blocked by it serial number.
  • iPad Cellular will be blocked by it serial number and IMEI.

To bypass iCloud on iPads Cellular you need disable it modem chip and change Board_id.

If you just only disable modem you will get error and not working device. Sometimes this happens when modem or cable modem is broken even on iPads which isn’t blocked in iCloud. My method can revive such devices.

 

 

When you disabled modem chip and changed Board_id device will stop work properly. Something inside will say: “Hey man, something wrong! My hardware is like for WiFi only model, but you use firmware for Cellular model. I go in DFU-mode and you should go in iTunes and restore me”.

When you connect your iPad to BigBrother OS will install driver for it.

iTunes

After this iTunes will find iCloud blocked iPad in restore mode and propose you restore iPad.

itunes icloud bypassAt finish you will have iCloud unlocked iPad WiFi only. Now It can be registered on your own Apple ID through new clean serial number. Voila!

If you have some problem with recovering check USB cable and restore iPad manualy from file with firmware. You can download firmware from ipsw.me. Remember that now you have iPad WiFi only hardware and you should download WiFi only firmware. For example, if you have iCloud locked iPad Air Cellular A1475 you should download firmware for iPad Air WiFi only A1474.

And Yes. At any moment you can covert your iCloud freу iPad WiFi only with hardware method back to iPad Cellular. But iCloud blocking will back too.

Be careful and good luck!

Tools which you can use

Soldering iron, needle, forceps to remove the resistor.

Soldering iron, ordinary pencil to create a bridge.

    1. Hello.

  3. 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. 🙂

  13. 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??

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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?

    thanks

    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?
