I bought an iPad on eBay and the owner will not remove it from the m their sprint account. Try to contact the seller without any luck. Even when data still active, I don't want to use some else's data and sprint won't cancel their service or unlock it to use at another network. I was thinking on buying a logic board the one I found has a clean IMEI but Is iCloud lock. I just want to know if the iCloud block will be transfer with the logic board?

The logic board is equivalent to the "computer" that the various peripherals plug in to, and so it follows that the iCloud lock will stay on the logic board regardless of whatever "peripherals" are connected to it.

What do you need help with? The iCloud activation lock will follow the logic board.

Replacing your logic board would make your iphone 5 a completely new iphone 5 or at least a different iphone 5. If you forgot your pass code you can turn the phone off, hold the home button, and plug it into itunes and restore.

With iOS 7 and Passcode lock, replacing the Logic Board or having the previous owner unlock the phone are your only alternatives.

Hello everyone. READ BELOW

Just to clear up, MOTHERBOARD and LOGIC BOARD are the same things, as far as iPhones are concerned.

REPLACING THE MOTHERBOARD WILL GET RID OF ACTIVATION LOCK. PUTTING AN ACTIVATION LOCKED MOTHERBOARD IN A DIFFERENT PHONE WILL STILL BE ACTIVATION LOCKED.

The only place that seems to be selling these motherboards is from Aliexpress.com (just search your iPhone type + motherboard)

After that, go to the iFixit repair guide of your specific iPhone model, labeled logic board replacement guide.

You may need to buy tools, and you can do it yourself. (recommended as its not too hard) Otherwise, you can bring it in to an Authorized repair store or just your local Tech place.

Hope this helped

:)

Hi, what exactly in the motherboard should I change to get rid of iCloud lock?

- de

Easy to change the logic board a.k.a (motherboard)... unless you go to china, there are many shop can place a few item in your icloud logic board... such as your memory nand, baseband and etc...

- de

I am not sure, look on youtube there are tutorials on how to do it.

This is for people who don't want to go to that effort and or don't have the equipment.

My dad forgot his iCloud password and now the iPhone is locked , is an iPhone x

I was wondering if I change the motherboard the iPhone will be unlock (NEW)? Need your opinion please

you can buy legit clean affordable logics off of ebay for every model iPhone then just take it in to your local iPhone repair shop and they'll do all the heavy lifting for around 30-45 bucks! beats buying a entirely different device despite the controversy

No one wants to be straight forward.

Yes .by replacing the

Logic Board/(Motherboard)

You can turn it into a new working device. If your worried about keeping your old content u should have and k ow your own icloud set up if not you'll risk locking it up again.

Also you can build the phone from scratch outside the USA easily.

Stateside you'll have to find retailers who'll resale the parts. A lot of places won't but there are some who will.

There's a Market for building and repairing phones don't let the 1 percenters and mass consumers

Know tho cause then it'll ruin it for tech junkies..

See ya good luck do it at your own skill set and be sure research first if you don't know how and if u have a apple product the instruction booklet gives you blue prints. And reae down and repair instructions.

Have fun!

@oldturkey03 Actually, it is possible to legally "bypass" iCloud, but Apple needs to be involved. It's very straight forward, all they require is the original proof of purchase, with the IMEI matching on the receipt. I did this about 2 months ago, because I got an iPhone 7 Plus that was iCloud locked. I knew the person I got it from, and helped her get a digital copy of the receipt from the original vendor.

I started a case with Apple support and provided information and that original receipt (along with a detailed description of purchase) and within 48 hours the iCould lock was gone and I fixed the phone up for sale (and sold it).

@geirandersen yes of course, you are absolutely right. I think this "get a digital copy of the receipt from the original vendor." is the most important part of that. Thank you for reminding me. Appreciate it.

Same Bs , We all know can only be reset if you can get the user to unlock it , But these guys the cheking means just going to find my gadgets which adds no value Nkt . Atleast giving an email attached to account would be fair. Anyway I wish these comments are visible before the chargers Nkt

ainhoa silva, If you have the iCloud login details, just log in on iCloud and remotely reset your phone.

NB! This will erase your phone!

Yes, but what I don't want is for the photos that I see on your phone to be deleted since all the photos were not uploaded to the icloud

Joanne Torres, The only two ways of “removing” iCloud locks are:

1- Get the original receipt / proof of purchase from when the phone was first bought, the receipt MUST include the IMEI number! Then start a case with Apple and have them remove the lock.

2- Replacing the logic board with one that’s not iCloud locked. The locked one is only usable for micro soldering practice. (You can sell it on eBay as a locked board for practice.)

999/1000 of those advertising they remove locks, are scammers!

- de

Hi Joanne,

Given that this discussion is about replacing the logic board in order to remove an activation lock, if that's what you're referring to when you say "Not solve its doesn't unlock", then obviously your problem is that you bought another logic board that was also iCloud locked. You always want to check the IMEI number before purchase to verify that the board is not locked.

If, on the other hand, you're complaining that an unlocking service didn't unlock your phone, see @geirandersen's answer above.

Junior Ndey, If it's your phone and your iCould account, just reset the password. If you've lost the account or got hacked, just contact Apple.

As has been said countless times in this thread and on iFixit: There is no way to legally remove the iCloud lock, other than replacing the logic board with a non-iCloud locked one. You could also contact Apple with the original bill of sale (receipt) and have them remove the lock.
