Is it possible to bypass the icloud activation if genuinely lost PW?

Hello all,

I am posting to ask if its possible to bypass the icloud activation lock for any device on 9.2.3 (or current update) or for iphone 4, 7.1.2? The phones are not lost or stolen, the owner simply cannot remember their password or other credentials.

I see there is a similar question though it does not go into much detail?

I'm sure there are ways, either with software(windows apps/jail break?), hardware (new chip?), glitching the phone out (?) or even paying for it to be done?

I come across this issue too much and it would be great if it were actually possible to unlock these phones as they are useless...

Thanks for reading!

https://iforgot.apple.com/password/verif... if the icloud account is actually yours :-)

if you can't recover, then you will have to contact apple and give them the reciept.

I won't discuss the illegal bypasses in depth here, but you have to replace the baseband and emmc chip

Special case for the iphone 4 since its bootrom is limerain exploitable

Zachary, yes, I have signed into my own account after a restore many times, but have never tried those illegal bypasses.
