CheckM8 Unlock iCloud Tools - How It Works ?

The majority of iPhone and iPad users face the Lock Screen removal issue on their devices. The truth is, many of them can’t help it. Wondering why? Activation Lock Screen can be removed on iCloud Locked devices only if a user knows Apple ID and password. In case you forgot your login or password, they can be recovered via official source. But what can you do to unlock your Apple device if you have a problem with access to the recovery email, phone number or you just lost or forgot the answer to the secret question? Your last chance is to prove original purchase to Apple Customer Support. If none of the options listed above is available to you, your Apple device will remain locked for good.

Checkm8.info created a software capable to help each and every iPhone or iPad owner who forgot their Apple ID or password and encountered the Activation Lock Screen issue. Checkm8 tools are ready to bypass Activation Lock Screen just in one click! Here you’ll find a step-by-step guide describing how to use Checkm8 Software Tool Kit.

Please note, Checkm8 tools have two in-built solutions capable to unlock or bypass iCloud locked devices. The first software was designed to bypass iCloud Activation Lock Screen. Please read the service description carefully. The second software was created to completely unlock disabled iPhone or iPad which stuck on the passcode screen. For your information, Checkra1n Jailbreak is already built-in into Checkm8 Software.

Install Checkm8 Software

  1. Download and install Checkm8 Software.

    • Once the software is downloaded, launch it via right touchpad or mouse click on the app’s icon and left click on “Open”. The app will require a full permission, so please allow it. In case you face any issues with the Checkm8 app running related to FileVault, disable FileVault. The screen below will appear in case of success.
    • Download and install Checkm8 Software:
    • The next screen will display the following message: «CheckM8 Software was blocked from opening because it is not from an identified developer”. Here, you should click on “Open anyway”.
    • CheckM8 Software was blocked from opening because it is not from an identified developer
    • Click on the “Install” button will complete the Checkm8 Software installation process.

Jailbreak iDevice

  1. As was mentioned above, Checkra1n Jailbreak is already built-in into Checkm8 Software. This way, you don’t need to download it from elsewhere. Click on Checkm8 app icon to open it. The other option is to go to Dock and click on Launchpad icon beside Checkm8 Software icon. Connect iCloud Locked iPhone or iPad to Mac PC. The software will check the jailbreak status of your Apple device. If your device is not jailbroken, the software will offer you to launch Checkra1n and complete the jailbreaking process:
  2. Check iPhone or iPad using CheckM8
  3. Click on “Run Checkra1n jailbreak” button to run the app and let it recognize the device in Recovery Mode connected to Mac PC. This is where the jailbreak process starts.
  4. Jailbreak iDevice using Checkm8 Software

Enter Device into Recovery Mode

There are some cases when Checkra1n can’t recognize the Apple device connected to Mac PC. Here they are:

  • iPhone or iPad is passcode disabled.
  • When the following message is displayed: “USB Accessory – Unlock iPhone to use accessories”.

NOTE! This step is required in case of passcode unlock on disabled iPhone or iPad!

Please keep your device connected until you see the Recovery Mode screen:

  • For iPads with Face ID feature: Press and quickly release the Volume Up button. Press and quickly release the Volume Down button. Press and hold the Top button until restart begins. Keep holding the Top button until your device gets into recovery mode.
  • For iPhones 8 and newer models: Press and quickly release the Volume Up button. Press and quickly release the Volume Down button. Press and hold the Side button until you see the recovery mode screen.
  • For iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPod touch (7th generation): Press and hold the Top (or Side button) and Volume Down buttons at the same time. Continue holding these buttons until you see the recovery mode screen.
  • For iPads with Home button, iPhone 6s or earlier, and iPod touch (6th generation) or earlier: Press and hold both the Home and the Top (or Side) buttons at the same time. Keep holding them until you see the recovery mode screen.

Now, you should reopen Checkm8 Software. It will recognize the device in Recovery Mode connected to Mac PC. Please return to the previous step (Checkra1n Jailbreak) and complete the jailbreaking process.

Checkm8 Software will verify your device once the jailbreaking process is completed.
