With help of this method you can modify iCloud locked iPad Cellular into iCloud FOREVER free iPad WiFi only model. Your new iCloud bypassed iPad will not be wired with Apple ID of previous owner. You will can install any apps, make jailbreak, assign your own Apple ID account and do any other things. At this moment icloud bypass method is fully tested for iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad mini 1, iPad Air, iPad mini 2 with Retina Display and iPad Air 2



If you are looking for not hardware iCloud bypass method you can try another way for ALL iCloud locked devices.

How 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 it serial number.
  • iPad Cellular will be blocked by it 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 error and not working device. Sometimes this happens when modem or cable modem is broken even on iPads which isn’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 driver for it.


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

If you have some problem with recovering check USB cable and restore iPad manualy from file with firmware. You can download firmware from 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 firmware for iPad Air WiFi only A1474.

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

Be careful and good luck!
