In today's video we're going to create the iOS 10.1 CFW for iPhone 5 iCloud Bypass. This tutorial is different than our standard procedure we used to use, so please pay attention to the details.
iOS 10.1 is still decrypted from factory, this means that compared to iOS 9.x you don't need to decrypt it using ROOT keys anymore.
Although it is decrypted, the file is still Read Only so you will need to convert it to R/W.
Please keep in mind that this method is under development and might not be compatible with all iPhone 5 models or revisions, it is subjected to changes, additions and modifications as per research conclusions. This method requires the iOS version to be signed so you can't use it after the iOS version was dropped by Apple (usually after a new version is being rolled).
The procedure is not simple and prior iOS components / firmware modification knowledge is strongly advised.
This video contains multiple proofs including a side by side comparison with iCloud Status page and the actual phone.
All these proofs are here to prevent any doubts from people who don't have a compatible device and run in errors.
It is highly recommended to read the F.A.Q. page before you begin in case you get any errors, as this is a work in progress and errors might appear.
This method comes with no guarantees and should be treated "as is". I am not liable for any damages you do to the device by using the method. If you run in any issues with the device, a simple iTunes restore to the latest untouched firmware should solve it.
NOTE! Using this method on stolen / lost devices is STRICTLY PROHIBITED and makes the object of an illegal action. This method should only be used for your own devices, that you legally bough and you forgot the password or you got scammed.
