If you have forgotten your Apple ID password and device passcode after enabling activation lock, you cannot turn off Find My, erase your Mac, or reactivate and use your Mac. The activation lock will appear on the system activation interface after restoring your MacBook. This is an Apple security feature found in MacBooks from 2018 model onwards with M1 chip or T2 chip.
Luckily, there is a way to bypass the activation lock, even after forgetting your Apple ID password and device passcode. Please use expert assistance as this repair involves microsoldering work on the motherboard and reprogramming the controller chip. The same repair applies if you have forgotten firmware password (EFI lock)
How to Bypass iCloud Activation lock or EFI lock in MacBook with M1 chip or T2 chip?
- First step will be to remove the T2 chip on the MacBook motherboard by desoldering.
- Next you will use a programmer to reprogram the T2 chip and write unlock data.
- Solder back the T2 chip on the motherboard once this process is complete.
- Now the Macbook will be DFU mode and cannot turn on. Connect it to another MacBook and restore it using Apple configurator.
- Use T203 flash drive to read the MacBook data and bypass activation lock. Reinstall the OS once this process is over and you would have removed the activation lock successfully.
