My MacBook pro is actually a 2012 model

Bought a ****sy 3.0 on ebay, program it to try all the code from 0000 to 9999 after 4 hours, it found the passcode to be 0795

I am well happy with this

You cannot hack the user password, you can only format the hard drive and re-install OSX.
After format the MacBook will ask you for efi ( bios ) passcode ( 4 digit )

You can do it with Disk utility once you have the EFI passcode or take out to format on another computer

Bypass Mac Firmware Password

1) Shut down your computer

2) Remove the battery

3) Slide one of the levers (it doesnt matter which one) to the left. This will release the RAM

4) Gently wiggle the RAM card out and put it aside, you will put it back later

5) Boot up the computer while holding COMMAND+OPTION+P+R (this resets the parameter ram)

6) Wait for the startup chime to sound 3 times

7) Release the keys and shutdown the machine once you reach the login screen

Replace the RAM module and slide the lever back while pushing it in until it does not wiggle anymore

9) Now if you boot up the machine you should bypass the Mac firmware password.

You can now use the machine as usual, boot from an external drive, or whatever else.


Does that also work for macbook air model A1466

This method is good if you have a Mac made before 2010

efi password

Purchased a macbook pro off craigslist(never do that again) turned it on and it looked good but when i got it home and connected to my internet it locked up on me and asked for a 4 digit pin that i didnt have so upon searching google i found out it was an efi/icloud lock I thought i had a $600 paperweight until another google search uncovered a solution. I sent my machine to a computer repair spot in NJ which I found at ******cityrepairdotcom and when i got it back it was like new. Thank goodness for them so if u run into this problem I suggest you give them a call 2012221055
