comment Does Find My iPhone still work with a SIM block?
I was clarifying that they could not simply go into the phone, or crack the passcode, and enable wifi. They could however from the new iOS 7 control pane that one can swipe up. If they do that then I think it will, as you say, go into the Activation Lock.

Oh and it had a long - 8 digit - passcode.

It had Wifi disabled when it was stolen. They will not be able to connect to the internet with it then, surely?

@mouviciel You're right, I went back through my apple boxes and found it.

You're right, it was a malfunctioning hard drive as opposed to just dodgy entries in the filesystem. I do have backups, specifically Time Machine, but I ended up just using DiskWarrior to create a "preview" of the hard drive, cloning that to an external drive, and booting from the external drive. It's temporary until I get a chance to replace the internal hard drive, but all's working smoothly at the moment.

And by "launchd'ing" i mean: launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.kextd.plist launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.notifyd.plist launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.configd.plist launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemon/com.apple.DirectoryServices.plist I then did some other stuff, don't know if it was necessary, and then shutdown -h now, and when that didn't work, exit.

Okay I seem to have accidentally managed to boot it after manually launchd'ing several services and then exiting single-user mode. Which is good enough for this afternoon. I think I'm gonna try diskwarrior and/or techtool pro tomorrow, see what problems they report. Thanks for the help

Never had an install DVD, it came pre-installed. I've been considering trying to burn one with this old laptop I dug out. I've also been considering DiskWarrior, is it likely to be able to fix it?

I actually tried it with -r (-Rc doesn't seem to work). It gave the error "invalid node structure" always, and "invalid key length" only 75% of the time.
