Hello,

Auto-verify is there to ensure that the image that is read from the chip is correct, and when updating it back it wont be written corrupted, doing any operations without it is risky.

Unlock iCloud Lock 4 digit / 6 digit | HDB Team <- Especially Troubleshooting #3 (bottom of page)

In our HOW-TO we listed 12 possible combinations or batter / charger / computer status, and customers have to try each one of them until they find the right one for the respective computer. Sometimes even same model with exact same EMC will act different depending on the firmware version present on the logic board, so we give wider instructions that can guide you in this process, no matter what model / emc / firmware is running.

Now back to your issue. The fact you write the chip without verify is a bit risky, but if the communication and the mac is not fighting with HDBOX to control the chip, then everything is fine. To boot up the mac, you could try this : remove battery / charger / SPI adaptor from board, wait 15 seconds, connect charger and wait to see light on it change, power on computer, plugin the battery while computer is running. Then TurnOff the mac, wait a bit, and and press power, now should boot directly, and you can close it up.

Best Regards,
HDBOX Support Team.

Hello there,

First take a deep breath and do not worry, Now that you have written an image that most likely is corrupted, the recover process is not very easy, but we are here to help you.

In order to recover your mac we will need a couple of things from you ( you can give this by a PM or mail to [email protected] )

1) Mac Computer Model ( I can see its a1706, but just to confirm it) :
2) Mac Computer EMC number ( Like EMC 3071 / 3163 ) :
3) A backup file of your current chip content ( connect HDBOX again, and read it, save as backup1.hdb )
4) (Optional) A Second backup file, but first click unload image and read it again. This will help us
5) (Optional, but of great value) The Image that you have write to chip without verify, if you made a backup of it.

What we will do for your when when you give us those infos:
- We will search an working chip image for your computer model ( A Number & EMC version )
- We will manually patch it with your computer id extracted from those backups
- Unlock this new image, so it does not have any password / icloud lock
- Send you this file, and all you have to do is flash it back to chip using our HDBOX. After updating the chip image with the new image we prepare for you, you perform an SMC reset on the mac, and the mac now should be working and be a happy free mac.

Best regards,
HDBOX Support Team.

Hi.
I have tested in two a1706 and it works the reading and writing, with the macbook turned on and put the adapter, keep the button off, and do the reading and writing without releasing the touchid.
