How to bypass iCloud on iPads Cellular with help of easy hardware method

Apple devices (for example iPads) have some part on logic board which called Board_id. Board_id is responsible for how device identifies itself. For iPad, there are several possible configurations: Apple TV, Apple iPhone, Apple iPad Cellular, Apple iPad WiFi only.

When Apple’s iCloud servers bloсked iPads they do this in 2 ways:

  • iPad WiFi only will be blocked by its serial number.
  • iPad Cellular will be blocked by its serial number and IMEI.

To bypass iCloud on iPads Cellular you need disable it modem chip and change Board_id.

If you just only disable modem you will get an error and not working device. Sometimes this happens when modem or cable modem is broken even on iPads which aren’t blocked in iCloud. My method can revive such devices.

When you disabled modem chip and changed Board_id device will stop work properly. Something inside will say: “Hey man, something wrong! My hardware is like for WiFi-only model, but you use firmware for Cellular model. I go in DFU-mode and you should go in iTunes and restore me”.

When you connect your iPad to BigBrother OS will install the driver for it.

After this iTunes will find iCloud blocked iPad in restore mode and propose you restore iPad.

At the finish, you will have iCloud unlocked iPad WiFi only. Now It can be registered with your own Apple ID through a new clean serial number. Voila!

If you have some problem with recovering check USB cable and restore iPad manually from the file with firmware. You can download the firmware from ipsw.me. Remember that now you have iPad WiFi only hardware and you should download WiFi only firmware. For example, if you have iCloud locked iPad Air Cellular A1475 you should download the firmware for iPad Air WiFi only A1474.

And Yes. At any moment you can convert your iCloud freу iPad WiFi only with hardware method back to iPad Cellular. But iCloud blocking will back too.

Be careful and good luck!
