    Sorry Ed, nothing can be done, beyond contacting the seller. It sounds like they may have forgotten to disable the Find my iPhone feature through iCloud.

    And…you asked this question about defeating a security feature designed to prevent theft in the jailbreak forums and NOT the regular iPhone/iPad forums because why?

    I'll answer that since I don't expect any response from you at this point.

    The answer is that you thought that jailbreakers skirt the law and do illegal things so they MUST know how to crack a security feature!

    Yeah of course! :D /sarcasm

    The one last week had an avatar of a woman with two young kids.

    Now, I ask you, if we're all crooks who pirate stuff and do illegal things why would we be influenced by little kids and puppy dogs?! Sheesh!!! :)

    That's exactly what they do to help fool someone. Not saying this guy is up to no good as we may never know, but scammers are now going out of their way to set up the appearance of a legit story and take time to set up proper profiles to fool people.

    Exactly!

    Not that doing that changes the answer at all.

    Even if we were another type of forum there would still be no answer other than 'not possible'.

    Eventually I hope that that answer finally sinks in and we stop getting these questions all together.

    Please don't go by the other posts here!

    I can unlock your device if you pay me £100/$140 direct to my account......


    Wait, after Brexit make that £100/$110 and I'll sort it out for you.









    Edit: yeah I'm joking :rolleyes:

    Hey man, if I see a mother with kids or sweet puppies avatar I might consider helping them bypassing anti theft security features in order to use a stolen device.
    Not:D

    Darn mr cute puppy dog picture, the other guys beat me to it.

    You should return the iPad to its rightful owner. Or turn it into the police department.

    There is possibly a way, I would contact Cellebrite, I don't know what it will cost you but they have assisted the FBI in a similar manner.


    Well actually they help bypass the pin, or crack the pin, but who knows maybe they can hack "your" iPad.

    The posters after this one shouldn't have posted.

    We won't ever stop future threads like this one from appearing again, but we can just simply not reply after they've been told 'No'.

    I guess that would include your post as well....and just being told once won't stop the thread...he would have come back asking for second opinions.

    Because a certain element refuses to accept the fact that breaking this lock cannot be done.

    [MOD NOTE]
    This has been discussed ad nauseum, i.e., many threads asking the same thing. The end result is there is no work around. This thread serves no purpose if left open, other then causing arguments and accusations, to that point its getting locked
