In today's video, I am going to update you on the current situation of the iOS 12, iOS 11.4.1 and #iOS 11 #iCloud Activation Bypass. What is new, what is currently possible as of August 2018 and what you shouldn't lose your time with. I've made such a video back in March but it's been 6 months since then and more and more people are asking me in the comments section of my other videos to do an update video, so here it is.
Please do keep in mind that this is not supposed to be a tutorial or a "How to" video. This video is just to inform you on what is currently doable and what isn't. With Apple tightening the security of their devices, the only software method that can be used in 2018 is the DNS bypass by Ighor July, but that is a partial bypass which although gives you some functionality and internet access on your otherwise locked device, it doesn't bypass the Setup screen.
Other than the DNS software method, there is also the hardware method which implies the replacement of the logic board on the device. There are, however, caveats to this one as well. For example, since TouchID (and most likely FaceID too on #iPhone X) uses pairing between the sensor and the logic board, if you change the logic board but you don't also change the TouchID/FaceID assembly from the same device, FaceID/TouchID will stop working as they're no longer paired. Apple can fix this by re-calibrating them but they likely won't.
These are the only ways in 2018. Don't lose your time with any websites or software method or CFWs. CFWs require iBoot exploit which we do not have so they're useless without one and the websites can't unlock your device. I hope this informational video helps.
