iCloud lock removal by hardware replacement possible?
This question might be slightly different from some of the other questions asked about this topic.
Obviously, it can be done by replacing a few chips on the logic board and reprogramming the NAND chip or something like that.
But, my question is, can you somehow reprogram the EXISTING chip that came on the iPhone or is a new one needed? I saw a forum somewhere where someone had tried this but never updated his post.
Also, some special tools and software are needed for this type of project. I would love to know specifically what kind of software and tools are needed for this kind of job, and also, where I could buy them.
There are plenty of sites that sell this kind of material, but I want to know a reputable site that sells quality products and someone who doesn’t scam you into giving them your credit card information but never gives you a product.
I plan on repairing and flipping phones later in life as a side-job and depending on how much the chips cost that need replacing, doing iCloud unlock by hardware replacement. I don’t know how much the chips cost or anything like that, but considering you can get an iCloud locked iPhone 7 for about $50 and sell it for around $400, this may be profitable.
Thanks for your time and answers, they are much appreciated!
