    Any methods to bypass icloud locked iphone 5s?
    bought it second hand, lcd was broken.
    repaired it and now I find it's icloud locked, the previous owner isn't responding to my messages.....

    Just a bit to the right, or was left...
    To my knowledge, nope. I don't know if you could contact the support?
    Sorry I'm not much of a help
    Maybe it was stolen...

    the iTunes email is the same as his name, so I don't think it's stolen

    No, it will only re-install the whole OS. There isnt a way to bypass iCloud lock. You need the mail and password.

    Actually i found it faster than i thought I would, eitherway https://fce365.info this might help you out.

    Now some copypasta:
    Please notice that I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
    before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

    I never had the chance to test it because i never had an iphone but they also have an youtube channel with tutorials, you might want to check it.

    What? if you mean the link it's something that I saw a few months ago but if you mean the copypasta, I just copied it from XDA Forums just in case you try to blame me if something happens to the device.

    Eitherway i just noticed that the stuff that I sent you won't work on iphones that have more than 16gb of storage, you should read the CFW IClould Bypass FAQ entirely

    If I were you, the only phones that i'd buy in second hand would be Androids, because they are easy as hell to wipe everything.

    unfortunately, I updated to ios 10.3.2(was 10.0.2 before but I was like screw it and updated), and for ios 10.3 you need a mac to use some dmg thing because apple didn't make one for windows yet.
