Hackers can now bypass iCloud’s activation lock to access ‘bricked’ stolen phones
Stolen iPhones and iOS products are at the mercy of hackers, who can unlock “bricked” devices using a new workaround for iCloud’s Activation Lock. The new tool, doulCi from Dutch hacker AquaXetine and Moroccan hacker MerrukTechnolog allows anyone to plug a phone into a computer in order to access the hacker’s server to unlock the device.
doulCi is the worlds first Alternative iCloud Server, and the world’s first iCloud Activation Bypass. doulCi will bypass and activate you iDevice for you when you are stuck at the Apple activation menu. So, why would you use it? For example, if you have forgotten your Apple ID and password or no longer have access to your old itunes-email account then its impossible to regain control of your Apple Product!! doulCi is the solution that will enable you to can regain permenant access.
The hack could prove a boon to thieves who now have easy access to previously stolen iOS devices, even if they had been locked using iCloud. With the unlocked versions, the iOS devices are capable of operating like an iPod – or a phone with just WiFi access since the SIM lock is still effective.

Since announcing the hack, the duo have managed to help 30,000 devices get unlocked. Now, the website and service is currently no longer working. According to a report by Telegraaf, the hackers told Apple about the issue in March of this year, but was ignored by the company until major press coverage brought the team an email from Cupertino.
Apple has finally contacted haha, just got an email from from cupertino
