How this iCloud bypass method works
If you found another person’s iCloud locked iPad, try to return it to the owner.
With help of this method you can modify iCloud locked iPad Cellular into iCloud FOREVER free iPad WiFi only model. Your new iCloud bypassed iPad will not be wired with Apple ID of previous owner. You will can install any apps, make jailbreak, assign your own Apple ID account and do any other things. At this moment icloud bypass method is fully tested for iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad mini 1, iPad Air, iPad mini 2 and iPad Air 2
If you are looking for not hardware iCloud bypass method you can try another way for ALL iCloud locked devices.
If you are looking for a way to unlock the iCloud on iPad Wi-Fi Only, iPhone or iPod, then read this article: How to bypass iCloud on iPad WiFi, iPad Cellular, iPhone and iPod
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.
After this iTunes will find iCloud blocked iPad in restore mode and propose you restore iPad.
At 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.

How we bypass iCloud on all iPads with help of difficult hardware method
With help of this method you can bypass iCloud on all iPads. You even can make device which Apple never produced! For example Apple mini 8gb
If you are looking for a way to unlock the iCloud on iPad Wi-Fi Only, iPhone or iPod, then read this article: How to bypass iCloud on iPad WiFi, iPad Cellular, iPhone and iPod
I will write tech theory for other devices later. Maybe.
Holla, For ipad air 2 A1567 I already made jumper. After restore I can’t see wifi. I put these old drivers in Ipad, but the same. (I use ssh from dfu/ramdisk)There is new drivers for ios 15? Is the same path?
There were no donation for many years for this post. So development of this method is stopped.
Can you activate the iPad? iPad can activate only on iOS 10, newer ios has SW Fix a you cannot activate your device. Setup app only show “cannot activate”

Hi, I have done the hardware method onto my Ipad mini 2 4G, so as to make it an Ipad Wifi. In order to use checkra1n, do I have redo the process?
ipad air 1st gen wifi+3G ic removal not nowrking bricked “can’t activate device” alsoipad mini 2, anything higher than iOS 11 will not work..:(
Checkra1n google it this is to everyone on this page
Downgrade to 10.3.3 and activate thats what i did and also changed serial number for good measure!
This order worked for me
Change Serial Number VIA Purple Mode or Remove Nand and Write new one
Then disable Cell
Then use VIEUX to force a downgrade to 10.3.3 takes numerous attempts but the good new you dont have to keep going into DFU
Another script that i messed with and helped a lot was 10.3.3 OTA downgrader it will loop over and over tell it gets it so you can walk away for a day and come back!
Then you should be at 10.3.3 activate!
About to try and upgrade IOS see what happens i guess because i sell this thing i know some one will do it hehe :)
You could downgrade first but then trigger DFU over and over got old so i did cell disable DFU first upgrading back to IOS 12 it looks like it works just fine it most likely due to the fact that not only is cell gone but serial number is changed and i changed the model number to non cell the one right down below it 1474 (UDID Changes at this point) looks good and working! there is my contribution to the scene good luck! Now as far what would happen if ya just did a factory reset no idea!!! As activation occurred in 10.3.3 thats my 2 cents im outy!!!!
This is right steps. I test it and it´s working. But only for iPad Air (a1475) or older. On ipad Air 2 no way how to activate it. :/
Do you know way for iPad Air 2? I tried downgrade with SunSt0rm but i have new firmware in SEP (Secure Enclave Procesor).
Checkra1n is possible way, but checra1n its only modify system and system no need activation.
I ve an iPad Air 2 that was hardware bypassed with this method, now it has Been updated (for wrong) to iOS 13.7 and software bypassed, the only problem is the Wifi greyed out, driver replacement doesn’t work… no solution?
How can you bypass software? Checra1n?
I think apple patched all hardware method for iPads as of today

hi What is the resistor value
Hello, I have two iPad mini 4 (Wi-Fi only) logic boards. One is iCloud unlocked but is completely unrepairable. However, the chips are still good. The other one is in good shape but locked My question is: Can I simply swap the iCloud locked NAND from the good board with the good NAND from the broken board? Is it necessary to reprogram the good NAND chip even if it is iCloud unlocked?
Any one knows how can unlock ipad pro 10.5 A1709?
That is quite straight forward if you have a PCIE nand reader and some soldering skills. You will also have to convert to wifi only but its a simple resistor removal and wifi ic change. I can do it for 100 bucks.
Without password, we should force unlock iPad without password with the help of the tool-Eelphone iPhone Unlock, hope it works for you, I used it, but lost all data after the success.
just follow the method. after finish .. remove nand ic rewrite with new imei number and put it back on ipad board.. restore with new ipsw .. done
How can I unlock iCloud from my iPhone without losing the information found in it? I have tried with many methods watching tutorial videos and I have not succeeded, they recommended these pages to me:

this method does not work on ios 12
Already bypassed long time ago on ios 9.2.1 and now i wanted to clean up my ipad air 2 to stock again and rejailbreak .. can we still activated after erase all content and setting pasha?? Tx
Pls link to ios 9 for ipad air wifi signed by apple pls
If i remove the jumper from air 2 will revers back?will be locked with sim card?
hi some one test with iOS 12 if it work how ,thanks for replaying
i have try this at ios 12.2 and it cant be restored at all, its stuck at 24% and get error 2 with 3utools
NOT work, ios 11 or Above no activated more, apple patch this Bug
i have a1489…. not work
Removed right resistor,followed all instructions,rebooted everything fine
Except screen goes black after 10 sec. Touch still works.everything else too.
Any Ideas. I already hard reset it. Same thing.
Hi have an iPad Air (1475) with icloud lock on. Its running iOS 12.1.1. If I remove resistor r1506, will it activate? And I will only be able to use wifi (no Bluetooth or cellular) Please confirm. Thanks
no,it can’t be activated,because the UDID will change when remove the celular and you can’t activate.
Thanks. So do I have any options with this device?
Yes u can remove icloud by hardware method, changing serial number n wifi number n bluetooth number then it will activate but simcard will not work.
can you explain please, after we removed 4g modem, how can we change serial number and WifFi number?
I’ve already updated it to 12.1.1 and now the iPad couldn’t activate anymore.
Hello.after it s posible make update or reset settings?
Hi, have you tried to do it Marius? Is it worked? If I do it and make a downgrade wil it works? Thanks.
very true. procedure is legit.i have ios 12.2 running. my only problem is i cannot detect any bluetooth devices. wifi is doing very good in signal. what could be the problem with my bt?
How to activate? Can you active? How to fix it when like this.
Hi, have you tried to do it? Is it worked? If I do it and make a downgrade wil it works? Thanks.
Nice post, Can I still use this method to unlock iPad 2 cellular?
I’m sure I did the right thing, by removing #4 and jumper #2 to #3, DFU mode, and stuck at error 9. Is it because there are no difference between the cellular model, and wifi model for the ipsw.
Desperately need help
what is the model of your ipad?
The iPad in my experience is very picky about what cables it will restore with. Error 9 is almost always related to the cable, NOT the dock connector/flex cable. Use the official Apple cable if you still have it, or borrow one from a friend.
If that doesn’t work, it might also have something to do with the IPSW you are trying to restore with. Try using a different IPSW or using Redsn0w to boot Pwned DFU mode and restore it like that. Error 9 can be related to the RAM disk kernel rejecting the ASR because it is not signed properly, thus breaking the connection with the device and causing error 9.
This is a search on google,
There is a firmware patch for all >v11 (Works on all newer devices as it did before)
care to elaborate?
Can you give us more details?
Unable to active only 1 2 3 4 gen of ipads air 1 2 3 4 or later under ios 11 no posible error on activation come up…tested on many ipads …..and thoose who remove icloud on ios 9 or 10 on ipad air 1 2 3 mini do not update or facory reset your ipads tested unable to active again !!!!!!!!

It is possible to unlock an IPAD model A1823 ?¿?, thanks
si es posible
Yes u can unlock it
Is their update process to fix the no wifi issue after unlock and written new serial and nand unlock…?..
No, GPS will not work. You will have no GPS reception. Location is made only from WiFi.
What about 12 ios versioN???
i have remove resistor r1204 and jumper r1205 for my ipad mini 2 ,but i got DFU mode detect as iphone not as ipad when i connect to itunes , can you please give solution for me . thanks a lot brother
hello pavel, a couple of weeks ago I had my ipad mini 2 cellular without being able to activate because of ios 11, I had bypass then an acquaintance told me to unlock it and did it, how could it have been possible?
hi i have i pad mini 4 model A1550 pls can you tell me what resistor number to remove i promise to donate for you
can you please tell me why imessage and facetime doesnt work after changing the serial No, Mac and Bt address on an iPad 4. I have used genuine details from a working iPad but it still doesnt work. The ipad is running the last possible ios 10.3.3 Any ideas please?
Hi i have ipad 2 gsm model (A1396) i remove resistor r1205 as you say but i have so big problem you say ipad enter DFU mode itself the problem is when i connect ipad with ITUNES THE ITUNES NOT DETECT MY ipad on itunes app windows said iphone on recovery mode not ipad on recovery mode when press shift + restore and choose firmware got message could not be restored the firmware not compatible help me what i do thank’s in advanced for every one
you have removed the wrong resistor. now make jumper on the resistor your removed and remove the actual one.
this metode is still working ? one ipad air 2 cant be activated after flashing firmware !!!!

do you know how much money I could make you with the right promoting for your service and go fund me setup pavel? I’d like to help you with this if you would like ?
hey pavel u really genius on this stuff can’t you remove iCloud on iPad Air 2 gsm.i can donate if u can .
Could someone please measure the resistance in ohms on both sides of these resistors and publish it? This would help me quite a bit trying to find the right resistors in the new A10 series ipads (A1709 for example)
And i’ll be sure to publish my findings here so that the more modern models of ipad pros can be unlocked! Thanks!
for users who have update on ios11+
i use Apple Usb Camera Adaptor+Macbook USB to Ethernet to jailbreak

After I read this article I thought I am near to solve my problem, so I need your help please.
I have Ipad mini 2 retain display wifi only model A 1489
it’s clean but locked by Icloud, email ID is forget and no way.
so, can you please help and support ( software or hardware) to fix this issue,
Man, you are awesome. Does this method still work? – Greg
Yes, for iPads which don’t support iOS 11 and higher
I had gotten an Ipad Mini 2 with ios 10. But out of the blue, it stopped working. I couldn’t make it turn on. So i Had to update to ios 11.4 through itunes. So, it did not active. Ok, i was expecting this. So, if one day, we could downgrade to ios 10, 9, 8 … would it be possible to bypass the icloud or activate it again? Thanks
hi, I have an ipad pro 12.9 second generation model a1671, you can unlock it ?!
hey pavel u really genius on this stuff can’t you remove iCloud on iPad Air 2 gsm.i can donate if u can .
With 64 ipads all is more difficult now. Read other posts.
Hello! if iPad Pro a1652 has earlier iOS than 11? will this work? best regards! you rule! I’ll try it, if it work I’ll of course donate :)
Can i still use this method removing resistor on a1475 ipad air ?,after i remove this the ipad doest not power anymore,pls help
you can only do this on cellular models,if you do this on wifi only models it will not activate.
As I know on Air this method will not work fully because of iOS 11+ restriction.
You have to buy SN, MAC and other for flashing it inside unsoldered iPad’s chips. After this procedure converted 4G -> WiFi only iPad will be able activate itself in iOS 11+
For old iPads wo iOS 11+ support all works great.
Hi, I did convert an iPad air 2 4G –> to wifi only , I bought a new serial number , new Bluetooth address and also a new wifi address, after I wrote the new information on the Nand , I Restored the iPad with the new information, the activation was successful, but unfortunately the wifi and Bluetooth still not working 😪😓… do you have any solucion or any idea? Or do I have to wait until the new JB comes out , so replace the wifi files?
Yes you need to change the wifi ic to the appropriate model for your now wifi only ipad. It is slightly different (but use same pads so can be changed) so the firmware will not work until its changed out. You can find these on aliexpress for about 20 USD
Did you replace drivers?
I followed the icloud bypass instructions for an iPad Air 2 back on some version of IOS 10. I wasn’t able to jailbreak that version and I never regained wifi. I eventually updated to IOS 11 and lost bluetooth as well. but it works great other than that.
I’m finally jailbroken on 11.1.3 and the ipad still works fine, just without wifi or bluetooth. Can I till replace the wifi firmware and get wifi back?
you need to replace the wifi ic that is appropriate for your now wifi only model. See above post I made
You can try replace drivers but I’m not sure they will work in new iOS 11
Can I still use this method to unlock iPad 2 cellular?
Yes. It works for iPads which doesn’t support iOS 11 or higher
Thanks for your hard work here! Something that would be really nice would be the resistance measurement on both sides the resistors so that it would be easier to pinpoint the ones that need to be removed/bridged in future models of ipads
I don’t have such info
give me your paypal account…not bitcoin, i want to make a donation for your helpfull posts!!
I have a ipad pro 2017 12inch A1670 Do you know where to place a resistor
Does procedure the same on A1395 as on A1396?
good evening. I have the model a1490 and I removed the resistance 4 but I have two doubts.
1.- How the jumper is made
2.- Is there an error in the syntax? (you can solder “in” resistor 3 “on” position 2) could you explain to me that I should weld and where? if in this case I do not want to make the jumper or explain how to make the jumper?
thank you very much
Read post from the beginning and you will find how to make jumper.
Read as “Jumper from position 3 move to position 2”

pavel saludo perform the work of icloud on an ipad air a1475 the ipad is perfectly unlocked but you do not want to activate with the latter ios 11.0.1 you tried the same work with another ipad air of the same model and it is in the same situation it is not activated there is solution
please correct your sentences. I don’t undertand. You can upgrade to iOS 11 only through wifi. You can’t restore bypassed device with it.
hello pal, Is there anyway to restore ipad mini 2 and above model after hardware unlock?
Please get back to me. its really urgent.
Thanks in advance.
1. Wifi only models through editing sn in the NAND
2. Maybe Cellular models if they locked with iOS lower then 11
Its not working itunes didnt activate ipad and i dont know why wifi doesnt work only ipad connecting itunes via usb cable after connected itunes warn ipad didnt activated.
And your information text second step writing ipad mini3 third step saying ipad mini4 is it true?
hello i have a ipad mini a1455 and i want to ask how can i delete the i cloud activation
Read manual. As I know ipad mini 1 doesn’t support iOS 11. So method should work
I have a problem I had a bypass with iOS 10 but was upgrade to iOS 11 is any solution for this or just I have a luxury stone for the paper? It’s an iPad mini 2. Regards. Thanks for this tuto.
Hello. I have a iPad 2 Wifi only (A1395) with iOS 9.x. Any solution for it?
Editing SN trhough special equipment and restore with this iOS version
Which equipment do you mean ? Do yo mean ipbox 2 ?
hello, has anyone solved IOS 11 activation issue? Thanks
I think it’s impossible.
i have ipad mini 2
u want to bypass
but iam confused
whether it can still and in the restore to ios 10.3.3 at this time?
Apple don’t sign iOS 10 firmware anymore
is there no way to still do the bypass, am stuck at ios 11.0.1
No. You had to restore it with ios 10 wifi only manually through iTunes.
Apple has stop signing IOS 10.3.3 , no more hardware removal!!! I wonder if it will still be possible thru reprogramming NAND with different serial Number
Only for icloud locked iPads wifi only with iOS 10 and lower.
You can use the iOS 10 for recovering bypassed iPad until November of this year. Then the signing will stop and any hardware bypass methods will not work.
Same thing, after downgrade to 10.3.3 process ipad mini 2 A1490 is in recovery mode and doesn’t activetes.
I always wrote “Don’t update”.
Is there a Jailbreak for iOS 10.3.3 for iPad Air 2? I have one here on 9.3.3 working normal, should i stay on 9?
Stay on 9.3.3
hi can u help me to unlock model A1490
Good day, after the process ipad is in recovery (with the screen black) and when I try to update with itunes I get error, before I got error 9, now I always get 4014. Its possible that I done something wrong? If we solve this I will donate 30$ for research to you.
Update via 3utools
ipad mini 3 with ios 11 can’t activate. show activation information is invalid
Try to download last signed iOS 10 for ipad mini 3 WiFi only and restore iPad manually through iTunes with choosing firmware file (Shift + click on restore button).
HELLO KAREN please can you send me your procedure used for bypass ipad mini 3
my mail : [email protected]
In iOS 11 Apple will path all posible hardware methods to bypass iCloud.
For now you can use iOS10 some time.
I would not upgrade to iOS 11
I did it on my ipad 2.2 it works correctly but i loss my gps…it seems like ipad 2.1
Thank you! Have a nice day!
iOS 11 can be activated on bypassed devices if you downgrade iPad to 10.3.3 and then you do update with WiFi and don’t update with iTunes .
But the problem is that you can now downgrade but after maybe 1 month you can’t do it
DON’T UPDATE TO IOS 11!
Many people can’t activate bypassed deviced devices.
If you have already had suck problem and can’t restore from backup than write to Apple support. Pretend to be a noob. Say that you bought such a device and tried to upgrade to version 11. Do not say anything about the bypass procedure.
Quote from forum:
Wat do you mean with ota? Can you explain it for me?
update by wifi on ipad
Thank you pavel I sent 5USD. All the best for you
Thank you! Have a nice day!
Doesn’t work on iOS 11 unfortunately. Anything below ios 11 still can activate. Ios 11 don’t.
Many people sold such devices as usual. If Apple blocks buyers, then scandal will rise.
When the support for iOS 10 stops, all you must fill up the technical support of Apple with letters that your purchased device has blocked
hi boss, i have already bypass the ipad pro 9,7, now i’m traying to fix the grey wifi, i have take out the nand and i have use the JC N2 for unlock wifi, but wifi still in grey, should i change wifi and mac adrees? you thing that will work ?? and i have donate U$S 50 , thanks for your hard work boss! i apreciate a lot! from argentine!
I don’t know what JC N2 is. Try to ask here forum.gsmhosting.com/vbb/f631/bypass-icloud-ipad-2-3-4-air-mini-mini-retina-3g-hardware-method-1872271/
As I know you should pair nand with new baseband chip
Hi, wifi files for hardware method ipad pro 9.7 isn’t here yet?
Don’t wait. People didn’t donate – delepers stoped research forever.
Can you get me the instructions for model A1823? I can make a donation. Tell me the value.
Maybe i can help you, then you can donate to Pavel
Nobody will donate after help. Proved many times. ?
Done. I donated. Thank you for your hard work my friend, keep up the good work!
Thank you! You are the first who donated in last 7 months :)
I think the esiest way (after Bluetooth connection) to fix wifi is https://www.amazon.com/FOINNEX-Aluminum-Lightning-Ethernet-Internet/dp/B0721784FC + wifi moblie router
Yes. Tell me how much I need to donate? And how I do the donate. And if you can send me the unlock info.
i don’t think manual for A1823 will be developed soon.
First we should find high resolution photos of both logicboards
Although not much I did donate $20 to the paypal address listed under donations.
$20 USD anyways. Also if you ever need detailed close up photos to specific devices. I have a very small repair business; so I come across various devices. Just ask and you shall receive (maybe lol) via my email I sent you a message from
I will anwer on your email a little later
But, you make jailbrake, how put file in the iPad pro, why is necessary jailbrake for this
hello i have a iPad air 2 on 10.2.1 i tried to jailbreak but no cydia,i have yalu102 on the screen ,im connected with my iPhone on bluetooth and tried already 20 times with no results,no cydia, it is possible i have done this wrong?thx for the help
I did 2 ipad’s air 2 64 gb, both of them worked fine. however since 10.2 is not signed anymore i could only go to 10.3.2 so now i have to wait for jailbreak. there would be the other method to change the wifi board on the motherboard, but there is no guarantee that the board will not get damaged since it has underfill also.
When you think that replacing the wifi driver is such an easy task, but we can not do it just because we do not have root access it’s a shame.
There could be another way to make a custom firmware with the driver already inside, but lately apple has done all they could to patch this as well and not be able to write cfw’s anymore either. There used to be a glitch that allowed to install cfw’s with patched setup.app to bypass icloud in software mode, but it does not work anymore, not even on older devices.

I did donation Pavel almost 2 years ago when i first found your blog. I Will do again after i will test solution on ipad pro and air 2. Thx in advance
Maybe you made a jumper on that place. Check and clean
I pad Air 2 10.3.2. working with bypass! (I messed something up, now all I see is a grey and white screen, what did I do wrong, it respond to touch, i can hear voice over saying all the setup steps as I navigate said the welcome to your new ipad in itunes and everything, but I cant see JACK, in other words NOTHING! what did I mess up? any help would be appreciated.
Is Pavel really cool?
I think that he is cool. He is my idol and god. I admire him. I bow to him. I worship him. :D
U must be stupid God is one and he made that person u talk of and all his many talents that he does and u see him that way repent
He is a little crazy. I’m tired from this fanatic. :)
it’s possible that you lcd is busted or the backlight shorts out.
Great work! Thank you! I’m your fan. :)
Hi! i want to know if somebody know where i can find the wifi files for ipad mini, greetings!
Nowhere. People didn’t donate man who had made drivers for Air 2. So he will not make drivers for new iPads.
Punishing people for greed.
On the Air 2 driver wifi work.. Not work the AirDrop.. The people’s is greedy it’s correct!!!
I have a non tested method in how to obtain driver’s, 1st, decompress the ipsw, but what are the files? i have of ipad air 2, i need to see, if are there, the same named files, or folders.
Oh, i forgot, i need to do jb first… but no bt, no wifi… i´m in 9.3.2, ipad mini bypas…
iPad Air A1475. I’ve removed resistor r1506 without any issues all seems fine but it seems to be getting very warm around where the resistor was removed. Could it be the transceiver over working. What are my options please willing to donate.
If you didn’t donate after free icloud bypass than you’ll will not donate after
I’ve donated £5 for you pavel
Check everything. Most people don’t have problem with this old manual
Could it be that it’s shorting at the point of the resistor removal point?
I don’t know how you removed it. Check it. Also you can ask here http://forum.gsmhosting.com/vbb/f631/bypass-icloud-ipad-2-3-4-air-mini-mini-retina-3g-hardware-method-1872271/
It’s a rare problem
Hello Pasha! and all the experts in here hope you guyz are doing well,
yesterday i removed this resistor r1205 on my ipad A1396 after removing it the ipad is not showing up even detecting to the pc. first i thougt it was the battery’s fault but i charged it the whole night till now it is not comming up or detecting anywhere. is there any wrong thing i did on it? or was the r1205 chip related to power suply system? any one can help with it or telling me wat to do of it. thank you.
I did in a1550, and don´t power on… i need to check, what happend, i touch and the area of interest is hot just a little…
2-3 people checked this method. All i ok. Give it to pro repairman
I added manuals for iPad mini 4, pro 12.9 and 9.7
I doubt anyone can help with this…but….I have ipad 12.9 pro wifi + 4g lte…my issue is i am trying to reprogram the 4g lte wifi module to wifi only model…(the wifi chip itself)….i remove wifi chip, use machine to reprogram nand, but wifi module does not convert to wifi only module…it stays greyed out..
im trying to do the same process as if i JB the ipad and replace wifi files….
im doing it through hardware, im trying to get the ipad to rewrite the wifi module files..
take off wifi module, restore ipad to wifi only firmware, then put wifi chip back on….
i am stuck

Thank you! :)
Hello,i have an iPad A1567 Air 2,i did the jump as shown in photo and now i can’t restore throught itunes.it says Waiting for iPad and at the end error 4005 any solution?Thank you!
Send a photo of jumper. giovannibrek89 @ gmail . com
I have a iPad Air 2 screen broken,now jumping resistors will solve problem for good,and take the board completely out?
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!)
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?
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
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.

Jailbreak beta 10.2 is available

hi, how you make jailbrake at 10.2 iOS ??, because only see jailbrake for iPhone 6s and iPad pro !!, please helpme, Thanks
Hello pavel, I have a question … If you can help me, I will be happy to help the owner, and I will get to work with this great tutorial …. If I have my iPad Air 2 3gs in iOS 10.1.1, and get jailbroken. Do the wifi drivers work for this?
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!
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
did you update to the latest firmware ?
if not wht firmware you did update to ?
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. ;)
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
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.
what photos do you require for the ipad pro
I added full schematics for iPad mini 2 Retina and iPad Air 2 to the post
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. :)
Pavel, Happy new Year! 2017 thanks for all. BOB MAYORGA
Happy New Year, Bob!

There will be no jailbreak for iOS 9.3.5, and you can’t jailbreak a locked device
hi, after unlock an ipad air2 and have replaced files, all works good except gps, its normal?
Yes its normal, because iPad Wifi don’t have GPS. After the unlock, your iPad becomes a ipad wifi, so you lose GPS.
Can you show me Icloud unlock for iPad Air A1566 model. Surely donation
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?
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…
Hi pavel, I have an ipad pro of 9.7″ with 4g module, you need the picture of the logic board?.

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.
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?
