I'm afraid that it's impossible to activate any iPhone under activation lock without having the original owner's password. There is no bypass for this. This iPhones in your shop are little more than expensive bricks. iCloud Activation Lock is a theft deterrent feature introduced with iOS 7 in 2013. If there were an easy way to bypass it, it wouldn't be a very good security feature.

Here is the Apple support page. iCloud Activation Lock

And, beware of anyone offering hacks to circumvent iCloud Activation lock. I've seen websites offering a service that allegedly does this, it simply doesn't work that way because Apple servers are also involved in the locking mechanism.

Some of those unlocking services can get you limited access, not including any cellular functions, but the unlock disappears when you reset the iPad.

I thought if you knew your ID email address, you could reset the password after answering the security questions. But you at least need that email address. If you don't have that, there's nothing you can do.

It's even more secure with Two Step Verification.

is anybody working to bypass the activation? this is just a block of code that should be possible to isolate and create an executable/library without the block.
Why would you want to bypass a security measure designed to stop unauthorized people from erasing and using your iPhone if it's lost or stolen? iCloud Activation Lock is designed to be as secure as possible to make your device worthless to a thief. If it was easy to bypass, it wouldn't be a very good security measure, would it?

The problem here is that Apple servers are involved in the activation lock procedure - someone may be able to patch it on the phone but they can't alter the server-end code so the patch will never be fully operational.

Probably something like:
* the phone comes up with a series of numbers (based on IMEI number, time stamp, etc), hashes or encrypts them and sends that to the server
* the server comes up with the same numbers and hashes or encrypts them

If the hashes/encryption from the phone don't match that of the server, then the security handshake is denied. If the "package" was signed on the iPhone before being sent to the servers, then the first step the server would complete is to check for proper key usage. If the wrong key was used for signing then the server would silently kick that package to the curb and not give it a second thought.

The trouble is that a hacker doesn't know what the server is expecting (hash, encryption algorithm, key signing, etc.), or how the server is going to process the information, so it's difficult to come up with something that will effectively fool the servers.

I'm not sure that is exactly how it works but I would try to use something that isn't easily reverse engineered, such as SHA-512 and/or AES-256, RSA key signing, if I were to create such a system. I'm not a cryptographer or even a security specialist, so I can only imagine what Apple used in this procedure.. they've more resources at their disposal.

The latest software of the iPhone 4 is 7.1.2, also with iCloud activation lock. As posted above, it's not possible to bypass it.

It doesn't matter what kind of test you did or what kind of phone you tested it on, it does not work. Every site offering iCloud activation lock bypass is a scam.
