I can't use checkm8 to unlock efi because I get bridge OS 6.0+? Stephen, please, help me figure it out.

you can get the tool from their website

I have this photo from a year ago so I’m hoping the serial number is still registered

Please Post here if the serial number worked so the other members can benefit from it
I think Checkm8 EFI lock service uses normal restore like AC2, so it will definitely patch the Bridge Os to 6.0.

The only solution now will be removing EFI lock with other means that does not require restore.

People have it but don't want to share even for a fee, another guy says he can't do it remotely unless the mac is shipped to him.

I would say Mina EFI would be safer. Checkm8 may be controlled by Apple secretly. I had a suspicion when they removed certain software recently.
I may be wrong though.

Hello mate, I love your thread. I also like to investigate. Could you upload the package of files that come with the t2 programmer to do some tests before buying it? thank you

okay I answer myself in the same forum are already downloaded.

One question, once I do this bypass, if I remove the battery and put it back in, do I lose it again and do I have to reactivate it with the application?

No with Mina activation it doesn't lock after battery removal, the only way it locks again is doing a T2 restore
