This tutorial will help you get your IOS 7 activated and you will keep all the media that was previously on the device. This has only been tested on the Iphone 4 only works on iPhone 4

DISCLAIMER: we do not support or condone theft of iOS Devices in any way (we can't say the same for apps on this site), this tutorial is intended for legitimate uses such as when buying a second-hand iPhone. please, try contacting the previos owner first to have them remove their iCloud account, before attempting this tutorial, more info:

NÓI VIỆT? - Cách Hacktivate iPhone 4 bị dính iCloud

طريقة لتخطي مشكلة iCloud Activation Lock وتفعيل جهازك على نظام iOS 7


Why only the iPhone 4? (soon, more devices, please vote)
The iPhone4 has an unlockable bootloader, so hackers have access to the whole system to create tools such as the SSHRamdisk. The newer iOS devices have been jailbrkon, but the evaders made a concious decicion not to allow jailbreaking of activation locked devices.

At the moment @smolk1984, twitter.com/smolk1984 is working on a tool that can bypass the activation lock on the iPhone4s and 5, please vote for the first option in this poll if you want him to release the tool: http://i-ekb.ru/2014...-obxod-appleid/

oh and by the way if you are seeing junk like this : http://www.gadgetwid...k-beta-testing/ it is porbably fake. gadgetwide is a fake and so is its boss varo derebrosian.

=======WHAT YOU NEED======
First You will need a few pieces of software, and an iPhone 4 USB cable, and a PC or Mac conmputer... you may also want to grab a beer or two. :)

METHOD 1 (Uses a GUI, way easier, faster but PC ONLY) This is the best method, because afterward, you can easily use evasion to unthered jailbreak, if you are on mac, it is worth it to wait until you have a PC around to do it this way.
1. smolk1984's iOS Soft Dev Pack (PC) DOWNLOAD: http://forum.iphonec...ft-dev-pack-pc/

METHOD 2 (Uses a GUI, PC and Mac, claims to have working cell network) broken. please bug @quandaryninja about this
1. Download Ultrabreak from here. (Make sure you download the requirements as well.)
2.A computer, running Windows (XP minimum) or Mac OS X (10.7 minimum).
3. iTunes installed if you are running Windows.
4. An iPhone 4 running iOS 7.0 through 7.0.4.
5. Latest version of Java Development Kit, download it here[color=#aaddff;].[/color]
6. NET FRAMEWORK 3.5 or above, download it here.

METHOD 3 (Uses an SSH client, manual deleting the setup.app, PC and Mac)
1. DOWNLOAD MSFTGuy's SSH RAMDisk tool this cool Java application (which does most of the work): http://iphonecake.co...h-ramdisk-tool/
For more info about the java program, and to contact the developer, etc. see here: http://msftguy.blogs...eation-and.html
2. An SSH client, such as:
WINSCP (PC) (this one works best!)download: http://winscp.net/eng/index.php
PuTTY (PC): (people have been haviong trouble with this one)download: http://www.putty.org/
terminal (MAC) (included in OS X as your SSH client) "If you are looking for something that keeps track of servers/connections via a GUI, Terminal.app will already do that for you. Launch it and then from the menu select Shell > New Remote Connection. This will give you a connections manager window."

3.DOWNLOAD TINY UMBRELLA (to get out of DFU, or do it manually): http://blog.firmwareumbrella.com/

METHOD 4 - Downgrade to iOS 6 or 4 (working cell network a work in porgress....)) see this post (same thread as this) for more info: thnx onedeaf
see here foir more info https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Si9Z92PGzbY , http://iosbreak.alte...ade-senza-shsh/ , thnx lczsantana

STUFF YOU NEED FOR METHODS 1-3
1. Java 6 or higher

2. [color=#ff0000;]PATCHED BY APPLE, DO NOT USE[/color]
3. JAILBREAK TOOLS
try evasion7 before you try ragebreak it is much easier, make sure to sign in with ur own icloud account after bypasing activation (deleting the setup.app): evasion7 PC: http://forum.iphonec...ol-for-windows/ evasion7 mac: https://evad3rs.box....f1pjbsvcu6b5i49

===or====

RageBreak, to jailbreak, only use if evasion 7 abosolutley wont work , and then the evasion7 untether patch to untether (currently trouble with this), more info: http://www.igeeksblo...4-for-iphone-4/, download RageBreak (windows, plz look around the net for mac link) :http://forum.iphonec...ak-for-windows/ , download evasion7untetherpatch as a .deb: http://iphonecake.co...38-posix-spawn/======= LET'S BEGIN! =======

METHOD 1
uses smolk1984's iOS Soft Dev Pack tool, http://forum.iphonec...ft-dev-pack-pc/

Posted Image
install the iOS Soft Dev Pack (PC ONLY) - http://forum.iphonec...ft-dev-pack-pc/Connect your iPhonePress iPhone4_Hacktivate_ToolPress the button to start the processa terminal dialogue will open as the process runs8) Your device will reboot hacktivated.Say thanks to smolk1984VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKDkYJIfrxQ

METHOD 2 broken please bug @quandaryninja about this.
Posted Today, 04:22 PM by quandaryninja all credit to him, cell network claims to work with this

How to jailbreak and hacktivate with Ultrabreak on iP4. (This is a tethered jailbreak but this is really the only way to hacktivate. Their is also other alternatives)

Steps:

1. Download Ultrabreak from here. (Make sure you download the requirements as well.)
2. Run Ultrabreak as an administrator and simply click jailbreak.
3. Put your iPhone 4 into DFU mode when prompt.
4. SSH Tool will exploit your device when it is done please click okay.
5. Then a CMD prompt will pop up. All it's doing is mounting your device.
6. Click okay and then another CMD will pop up installing all the necessary packages to your device.
7. Go back to the main page of Ultrabreak and click boot and pick your firmware and what kind of iP4 you have. Look it up on google if you do not know.
8. After boot you will be hacktivated and Cydia will be on your springboard.

People have reported problems. Please make sure your firewalls are off.


METHOD 3
Before starting backup your iphone on to Itunes and put it into airplane mode.Once the restore is complete you will see IOS 7 welcome screenPower the iphone off and into DFU mode, and it is plugged in into the computerRun the Java application just downloaded above and it will run a few codes of MagicWhen its done you should see this

5. Right after that fire up PuTTy (or WINSCP, or cyberduck, terminal,etc.). if you are using terminal, do this: "If you are looking for something that keeps track of servers/connections via a GUI, Terminal.app will already do that for you. Launch it and then from the menu select Shell > New Remote Connection. This will give you a connections manager window."

Next, put in localhost as hostname and the port 2022 , username root , password: alpine

? Below is the connection window for Putty, winscp and other windows SSH clients should look the same. ?

Posted Image


? New Remote Connection Window in terminal on OS X ?

Posted Image


Then you should a window that will prompt you for a username and password, which is root and alpine.

Posted Image

5. Press the little terminal windows in winSCP type mount.sh
Posted Image
6. Now we need to delete the setup.app
6a. Just go to /mnt1/var/Applications Then click right and delete setup.app
6b. If you only need to bypass activation you can now reboot and are done
NOTE : Your device will now be in recovery mode Use tinyUmbrelle to kick it out of recovery.

-----or---
do it with commands (may need to do this on mac)
Right after that run mount.sh in the terminal, then type in the following commands
cd/mnt1/Applicationsrm -R Setup.app (not sure aout if Setup is spelled that way, if you type Set and hit tab it should autocompleteOnce there just simply delete Setup.app and hold the power and home button to reset the phone.

When you boot up you will see the iphone recovery screen, don't mind that just TinyUmbrella to get out of recovery mode

Posted Image



The iphone should boot up after a few and you will also be able to reboot your device and still use it.

*Since it isnt officially activated it may have limited compatibility around Itunes, but I will look into that later

[but thats why we have cracked app sites, no need for iTunes! ]
*Update, Itunes works on Iphone 4!

Activating the cell network (all methods) (AT THE MOMENT REMAINS A WORK IN PORGRESS )


YOU CAN TRY THIS BUT IT MAY OR MAY NOT WORK....

You can bypass the ios 7 activation lock, but evasi0n doesn't lets you jailbreak. So maybe someone could patch evasi0n and we can try to jailbreak :)

is this on the iPhone 4? perhaps you can do a tethered with ragebrake or one of those and then unthether it with posixspawn, download posix-spawn: http://iphonecake.co...38-posix-spawn/ whoever patches evasion to bypass the activation lock will proabavly be able to make a lot of money given the number of bridle siphoned out there. I'm guessing it will happen

Correct

 

-- actually if after deleting setup.app to bypass activation, you sign in with ur won icloud account, u should be able to use evasion instead.

 

also soon there will be support for some of the newer devices in smolk198's ios soft dev tool.

see here:

 

http://i-ekb.ru/2014...-obxod-appleid/

 

sorry for my english, I'm from Russia and our Russian hacker was able to bypass Apple ID, (network works too) and now they're going to vote, that would lay out the program in the interent if you want that it came out, and vote for video (1 paragraph) Posted Image

 

will add to the tutorial.

Usually Activated Locked phones are always iCloud Locked. So this should work I suppose.
