    hey guys, my friend gave me an iphone, i need to bypass the activation lock, its factory restored, runing ios 7.1.2, i have tried all the tricks to bypass (glitches) but it didn't work.

    is there any way to downgrade or bypass activation through a software or a hack using pc ?

    No. That's the point of activation lock.

    If it was your friend's phone, tell him to turn the lock off for you. If it wasn't your friend's phone, then tell him to return the phone to its rightful owner.

    Looks like Apple continues to be on their game.
    On a helpful note: You answered your own question.

    thanks for your fast reply, let me correct my self, he didn't give me his iphone, he gave it for me just to fix it .

    why can't i downgrade ? because i have no access to the restore button on itunes ?

    PS: he tried to jailbrake it, but he forgot the apple ID and password, tried to restore, reached the activation lock.

    You need the Apple ID and password from the account it belongs to, no other way around it. And even if you could downgrade iOS, the Activation Lock will follow it.

    If he forgot his Apple ID password, tell him to call Apple, or go to an Apple store. With his information/ID, and his billing info, they can reset his password for him.

    That's your friend's Apple ID to enter in that link I posted. Have him enter that.

    I love seeing threads like this because it shows that Activation Lock really does work when it's needed. A friend of mine lost her iPad this past weekend and went online and successfully put it into Lost Mode. It had been updated to 7.1.2 before it was lost, so at least we know that if it ever ends up with someone that tries to restore and/or sell it, they won't get anywhere with their attempts.

    Apple added the Activation Lock to iOS 7 to combat the rampant unauthorized reselling of lost/stolen devices. There is no way around this lockout… your only options are to contact the person you bought it from and get (1) the Apple ID login credentials, or (2) your money back. If you bought it from an honest/legitimate seller, they’ll help you out. If you bought a stolen device from a scumbag, you are simply SOL, and you now own a pretty, albeit expensive, paperweight.

    I love the Activation Lock concept, but it appears to be punishing the unwitting buyer much more than the scumbag thief.

    When buying a device from anyone other than a legitimate retailer (Apple, wireless service provider, or big box store), make the seller meet you at your wireless provider's store and stay with you through the activation process. That alone will scare off most ne'er-do-wells. Otherwise, you may be throwing your money into a black hole.

    Caveat emptor.

    Am I the only one getting more and more suspicious with each post from the OP?

    This thread reeks of BS. Either you bought a stolen phone or stole it yourself. Activation Lock cannot be bypassed by anyone other than the original owner. I highly doubt you have a friend that forgot his birthday.

    Nothing fishy about that at all.

    I think that iPhone may have fallen off the back of a truck as they say, and you're currently in possession of stolen property.

    I just don't believe what am I reading here. People asking how to bypass Activation Lock, iCloud......should be banned for life :mad:...especially those, who forgot their own birthday.

    It's a stolen phone. Either he stole it or the "friend" stole it. Nothing new to see here. :cool:

    If it really is your friend's phone and he really has "forgotten" everything maybe he should have his noggin examined for his lack of memory.

    Since this person seems to forget everything, just don't bring it up for a while and he will forget about the iPhone altogether.
