Bypass iOS 7 iCloud Activation Lock

I’m going to tell you how to bypass the iOS 7 Apple ID iCloud activation lock.

You don’t.

There is absolutely no reason in the world you’d need to do this with a legitimate cause.

All the major developers in the iOS jailbreak scene have said they are not going to even start to touch the activation lock, because it is extremely morally incorrect. An activation hack will only service thieves, there is no legitimate use.

Stop trying, and give the device back.

EDIT: I’m going to approve all “fuck you” comments purely for my own amusement.

      Hah! You called me a virgin! Hit the nail on the head bro! You sure got me! Bet you bought it from a McDonald’s car park. If there’s no way for you to contact the original owner that’s your own fault.

        Hi Kye
        I purchased my Iphone from Sprint the salesman lied about everything.
        A. he said I purchased the phone but put me on an installment plan instead.
        B. Said I would have 4g lte by Jan 2014 in my area. That they were building towers in my area. Sprint has no plans to have 4g lte in my area. I paid for a 4g lte phone that I will never have.
        C. He added hotspot service which I didn’t agree to as a result I was charged late fees so now I am 460. In the hole not to mention the apps I purchased.
        I am not the only person this had happened to and there are countless cases of Sprint locking people’s phones even after there contract is up.
        So you pay for a phone you don’t own.
        Is there any help for us? I am part of a class action suit against sprint but I have an iphone 5c that is about to become useless as I have switched to verizon. I did everything I was suppose to. Sprint has you sign electronically and you don’t get to see your contract. The salesman simply stated what my plane was and completely lied. I have spent a month on the phone seriously up to am hour a day trying to get Sprint to do the right thing. They won’t and don’t care the supervisors lied to me as well giving me false information and went so far as changing my bill (I have all the orignals) to reflect their explanations. Bottom line is There are good people being ripped of by Sprint.

      Yeah you’re going to need the Tony Abbott™ Rupert Murdoch Foxtel Premium Package™ for that. You’ll also need as many cheap Dick Smith batteries and Philips universal remotes as you can find. If you want to get things rolling even faster you can grab yourself a Topfield PVR.

    I have an iPod touch I allowed my sister to use. Google for some unknown reason deleted her gmail account, and she tried changing the password and it now won’t let us do anything. I have been waiting for this to unlock the iPod from icloud. I have gotten a bit desperate as I would like to be able to use the 400 dollar iPod I purchased. I thought of restoring from back up but don’t have that option since it needs to be activated. Any help?

    Seems you live some sort of “uptown” life.. Casual d-dealer (or just pusher) is totally agreed with your moral. Early, 10 dozes=1 iP. Now it trades 1:1. D-addiction.. them guys dont know “why”. They just have to steal more and more, cause price of locked phones dropped .. Yep! Give the device back! Back to life as spare part.

    And now – Fuck you! Your fucking moral costs too much for society.

    It’s amazing how childish people can be. Heres a tip. Create your own tool that will disable it, instead of relying on other people to do things that they find morally wrong. Overall you don’t have the right to be calling people every swear name in the book because u want to use a stolen phone.

      Amen. I mean, I expected some hate but the overwhelming response I received was both fantastic and saddening. It sucks to know that so many stolen phones are circulating, but the traffic that I got from this post suggests that the lock really is a thing that is—at this point in time—unbreakable, and that makes me happy. I’ve never had my phone stolen or anything, but it’d be a shitty thing to do.

    The only difference between an iCloud locked iDevice and one that’s not is the price it will fetch on eBay (hint: everything but the logic board still has parts value). There’s no moral high ground to be gained by not supporting an iCloud hack because stolen/lost iDevices can still be sold and buyers are buying them. Like the famous quote goes: “We’ve established my proposal is sound in principle, now we’re just haggling over price.”

    Apparently no one at apple could possibly think of anyone selling their overpriced garbage phones second hand without supplying full lists of contact information.
    Apparently no one at apple could forsee that humans aren’t digital and don’t remember everything forever.
    While it takes care of wrongdoers, it also leaves hundreds of thousands of legitimate phone buyers (such as myself) with extremely expensive paperweights.
    I’ve personally moved to a far superior phone, and I’d recommend any apple user to do the same.
    Also, a hacker with morals? You’re a tool. A complete gutless tool. Suck a dick.

      Heh, apparently not. I mean, it’s completely unreasonable to expect someone to always be able to contact someone they bought expensive electronics from without testing them first! Imagine that, it’d be ludicrous! What next? Dogs marrying cats?

      Apparently no one at apple could forsee that humans aren’t digital and don’t remember everything forever.

      Again, another fine point sir. Imagine if Apple implemented some sort of ‘forgotten password’ feature like the one at http://iforgot.apple.com/! Imagine if they had a support number you could call like 1-800-MY-APPLE in the US! Again, dogs marrying cats, I say!

      While it takes care of wrongdoers, it also leaves hundreds of thousands of legitimate phone buyers (such as myself) with extremely expensive paperweights.

      I suppose. I love the citation you provided for that extremely inflated number you just gave. Then again, I guess I should believe you based on the last two iron-clad points you made before.

      I’ve personally moved to a far superior phone, and I’d recommend any apple user to do the same.

      What? I thought you were a “legitimate phone buyer!” Are you telling me you not only bought an Android phone instead based purely on the fact you messed up a phone purchase, but you managed to both decide that Android was “far superior” AND adapt the arrogant Android fanboy attitude, ALL after iOS 7 came out? That’s really impressive dude. Usually I’d expect someone as intelligent as you (again, basing this on your iron-clad arguments and accusations) to base your opinion on a phone on long-term use and not a knee-jerk reaction because of a mistake they made. I’ll just have to take your word for it…I guess you’re a time traveller or something.

      Also, a hacker with morals? You’re a tool. A complete gutless tool. Suck a dick.

      You don’t think hackers have morals? 95% of the iPhone jailbreaking dev scene is people that believe you should be able to do whatever you want with your hardware. Privacy and theft is strongly discouraged. Again, if you’re willing to say all the hard-working volunteer developers out there evil and trying to steal your (read: your mother’s) credit card, I’d be more than happy to pass that message along.

      It sounds like you just don’t know what the word “hacker” means, I guess. Or…again…maybe I’m just wrong. You’ve shown signs of maturity and intelligence so advanced that I should just not bother replying to this post!

      Have a fantastic day! I hope the other kids don’t tease you in middle school.

        attempted to use https://iforgot.apple.com/password/verify/birthday ?
        and my bday for some reason is not going through, the email works, but in the event that the person has no access to the email they are screwed.

        for some reason i am unable to connect to the us 1800 number….dont reside in the us….

        in my opinion other options should be given.

        think of the phone as your house and you lost your house keys, should you not be able to break the lock to your own house. or would u just say oh shit i lost my keys, looks as if i would have to buy another house

          In the event a person doesn’t have access to their email address they might want to check their bank accounts before they worry about this. “They’ll lose access to their email address” is a very catch-all line.

          You can’t contact a US 1-800 number because you aren’t in the US. Apple provides help numbers for a wide range of countries. They also have web-based support.

    I feel way cooler than all the other “fuck you” people because MY comment got WAY more attention than anyone else’s.
    I stand by my original point. Call me an android fanboy, I’m ok with that. Truth is I prefer a device that I can customize until my left hand bleeds and isn’t locked into itunes and actually feels like the expensive thing I bought is actually “mine”.
    While I understand the threat of thieves, I’d like to point out that there absolutely is legitimate reasons for a hack. Such as the original owner’s death. Which is my case unfortunately….which after speaking to five different apple care persons, is an option of either a) give the phone that I paid for to apple so they can refurbish it and sell it for profit or b) send apple the death certificate along with my personal identification and they might get around to taking the lock off.

    The choice is clear. I’ve been working on a crack and yes, it will be done soon and yes, I will hand it out for free. Theives have families to feed and addictions to supply, too.

    So I’m looking at replacing a much loved (and used) iPod classic with a bit of a more current unit, an iPod 4 or 5. I’d love a new one, but available funds (and funding sources) for the forseeable future suggest that a used one would be the best way for me to go. You don’t seem to be fan of ebay, do you know a source for “legit” previously owned Apple products? I have found some pretty prices on ebay, but from reading this thread I get the feeling that there is a better chance I’ll get a stolen one that I couldn’t use before I’d find someone actually trying to sell their own used iPod honestly. I’ve never had to deal with iCloud activation lock or whatever it is. Since I likely will be purchasing a used one, what specifically do I need to know from the seller to ensure that there is no issue with the iCloud seven seals of iHeaven or any other iCloud iLock?
    Yoir advice is much appreciated. Thanks

      Sorry about the late reply. Unfortunately, it’s hard. I tend to avoid eBay for electronics in general but that might not be an option for you. There is of course no surefire way to tell…some people can be very committed to selling stolen stuff; screenshots can be faked and all that. Apple’s refurbished site can sometimes have good deals, not sure if they sell iPods on that though. You could always buy local, and you can see the product for yourself before you buy it.

    Well, I have one scenario :-)
    1. a company buys iphone and gives it to one of the employees
    2 that employee dies
    3 a company now have a dead iPhone that is locked to the deceised temporary user
    I konow that it seems like too much, but a legitimate owner (wizh proof of purchase) cannot unlock its property?

    Well, you could argue that a company should not give it to the employee in the first place, or that a company should put it on the “company AppleID” but …

      It’s a completely different scenario for companies.

      Companies have access to provisioning tools which allow backdoor access for reprovisioning. This only works if you enable it beforehand, you can’t use it to “unlock” existing handsets.

      Sorry? They’re the two major players when it comes to mobile phones. In fact, they’re arguably the two biggest tech companies out there. I’ve made posts criticizing Apple, and criticizing Google. Lastly, last time I checked being a “nerd” was only seen as a negative thing to kids in middle school; do you fit that category?

    The fact of the matter is that you are incorrect on your accusations of all reasons of trying to bypass the icloud lock is for dishonest reasons. I have an iphone 5 that I bought from a friend legitimately. I went home and realized that there was a 4 digit passcode to get in to the phone. I asked him for it through facebook messaging and he gave it to me. When I went to reset the phone back to factory settings it asked for his icloud account passcode. I than tried contacting him for that and he hasn’t returned my e-mail. Because he hasnt returned an email with the passcode and I don’t know where he is I can’t use the phone in its entirety. So to say there is no honest reason for it is a down right lie, and if you actually believe this lie I pray for what decisions you’ll make with the little mind power you have.

      Honestly you just sound upset. It’s not my fault you can’t contact your friend so just calm down. You just sound impatient. If you consider the fact that you can’t wait for a reply to an email a “legitimate” reason, then I don’t really have much more to say to you. Insult my “mind power” all you want, you’re just making yourself look like an inpatient little kid…which quite honestly wouldn’t surprise me given the quick jump to personal insults.

    I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills acquired over a very long career in the shadows, skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you post the iOS 7 iCloud Activation Lock Release, that will be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you.

    You are correct about how the activation should not be cracked. I had my iphone robbed and didn’t have a passcode on it, so I went on find my iphone and locked it and stupid me, wiped the phone, instead of tracking it.
    The real losers are the ones trying to unblock a “stolen” “lost” phone. I constantly check online if the unblock exists and so far im still relieved it doesn’t.
