Arrow I can now unlock firmware passcode/4 digit pin on any macbook 2011 and later

I have discovered how to unlock the 4 digit pin on any macbook air or pro.
I think that I'm lucky enough to discover this kind of glitch.
I don't care if you don't want to believe me, but I am really glad I have unlocked my macbook air ever since it was stolen. Find my Mac has been activated, but I have unlocked it without the use of iCloud.
No iCloud bug, just pure keyboard trick

This seems just a tad sketchy, seeing as how these are both new accounts with only one post.

I'm sorry, I will not share the trick about it, I just registered here just to brag about it. And if you wanted to have it unlocked, I can only do it in meet ups.
But the thing is, I am from Philippines

There are always techniques to bypass security on laptops. It is so that a tech can repair the thing even if the user didn't unlock/provide the pass code to the tech when they dropped it off to get fixed.

When I was fixing PC laptops there was even a special CD-ROM that would bypass the silly fingerprint scanner on some laptops.

The only thing we couldn't get around was full HDD encryption, which was used on California Highway Patrol laptops we got in sometimes.

You surely must be the most brilliant 12-year old who's ever lived on Earth. No one has ever done this before, and I'm sure the Nobel awards committee will be contacting you soon.
