Hey all, so I'm in an interesting predicament. I hope off the bat no one thinks I'm trolling seeing as I've been a member for years but my situation goes like this: A buddy told me to tag along a public auction in the city of Los Angeles and to my surprise many interesting items were being sold. As luck would have it an iPad mini 1st gen was on the list and seeing as perhaps it was a slow Tuesday I managed to get it for $100. The issue though is that it was password protected. I then thought (considering I've done the following with previous iOS devices) to simply restore the iPad and set it up that way, but of course with iOS 7 the device is locked. I can't go to the owner considering I don't even know who the guy is, all I know is the crime he committed was some battery assault charge and the dude was already on probation and will be there for at least two years. I don't want to admit I have a bricked iPad mini. Such a shame too cause I was so happy to get this item. Any help in the right direction is heavily appreciated.
