We can read user info one year ago. Machine User name. User Icloud. Wifi user ever connected . and wifi pass hash codes. last user location and much more info. NVRAM contains marker activated macbook or not.
minacriss know how patch nvram to make MAC activate. but we dont know. mina and tha same tool hadly obfuscated and protected for reverse ingeneering. So the algorithm is hard to open.

with MacEFIUtil we can capture T2 NVRAM with no problem and extract prev user name previous icloud and many inteteresting.
but what change to make MAC activate in NVRAM - its a big question.

If anyone from forum can reverse code of minatool.?????

Mina however seems to get these things right but itís a collective of a lot of people working on the back end of checkrain.
Yes, but even then sometimes, you cannot get a hold of the previous owner, or how many owners changed to clear it .

The forums rules won't allow anyone to post links to sites that provide that service. You'll have to google it yourself.

How was this done, does anyone know?

Is this by desoldering the chip that holds that data and reading the data from it or is it some other way?

Much appreciated.

I think there is not need to desolder just jailbreak target t2 MacBook and extract info ssh commands with another Mac ,tunneling usb.

here an interesting paper where is explained how to user MacEFIUtil commmand

https://duo.com/labs/research/secure...-era-of-the-t2

maybe someone who already know how to do this can help us?

Yes, i got contacted from the Mod team.
I didn't think that it would be prohibited, because around Google it has a LOT of shaddy websites.
That's why i asked, because we are community , and someone that knows for sure that a website is working and is legit, that would be good for the rest of us.
That's why ,nothing more nothing less

So i will try to find out my way out, because it's been months since i fixxed this Apple and i have it in my bookself without using it ,and it's a shame that i repaired it

Any site charging to remove your lock on your own device you legally own is absurd. That is why myself and a few others are trying to figure out the code they are using to crack into the device so we can unlock them (bypass or removal etc). I think its decent to know we now can get back into these devices however I do not support paying these websites for that purpose because its bullshit in my opinion, however I do believe you should charge people for this service if you are a repair shop that is doing the physical labor and time, but the software should always be free when it comes to this type of stuff. Then again I am biased about it because I personally provided a solution to this issue without paying these companies and had that thread removed because of the bullshit harassment I received, but you wait when we do have one of these softwares our self and watch the salt flow

What he's saying is: He does not support people charging money for bypass/unlock Software and that he is working with some people to provide this software solution for free.

Oh okay , i got it now.
I don't care if i have to pay for something , or help him out as a patron or something, the benefit for me is that i can finally use this device, that i repaired on my own and i cannot.

So i will have to wait

Goodluck mate and please be careful as you may likely get PMs from scammers who will offer you paid unlocking service.
