I was curious to know if its possible to change the motherboard of an iPad to reset its software version? The iPad is locked to my friends late grandpa, and hence locked to his name.
I was using it without any problems until one fine day when the iOS upgraded from 6.0 to 7.0 and after that it was asking the iCloud password of the device, which unfortunately none of us knows. Then I kept the iPad as a decoration, until today, when it struck me, that probably changing the motherboard might help to reset the software version to an earlier iOS version.
Or are there any other possible technical solution to bring back the iPad to life, instead of running around solicitors and lawyers?
This is a genuinely bought family iPad / not stolen etc duly passed on to a family member.
