I recently bought an iPad 2 off of craigslist yesterday because I needed an iPad that could run iOS 8 Beta to dev my game on it. The screen was cracked, and it was stuck at the activation screen. Since I bought an iPhone4S off of my friend last year that was still running iOS6, I assumed that I could just install iOS7 and be done with it. Now I find out after buying it, that's not the case. I downloaded iOS8 Beta from the dev website, thinking that's all I had to do, but now it appears that a device's UIUD is registered with Apple, and only the original owner can activate it after an attempt to update the OS. The guy said that the guy he bought it off of didn't unlock it after he bought it. My first instinct would be to get back in touch with that guy so you could get it unlocked and usable once again. If I would have known all of these details before, then I wouldn't have bought this iPad and moved on. So, now it's on my hands, and the last thing I want is stolen merchandise because I am not a thief (except when I'm playing "Thief: Deadly Shadows"). The story could be the truth, but you never know these days. It's almost 3 quarters passed midnight here, so I'll call Apple or talk to someone from the Apple store in the morning. If it is stolen, I'd like to return it to it's owner. I understand that Apple isn't just going to give me the previous owner's information because that would be a violation of privacy, but I can't say I didn't try to do something. Any ideas? Thanks. Shogun.
