What is DarkRa1n?

DarkRa1n is the successor of BlackRa1n iCloud Activation Lock Bypass on iOS 15 that brings support also for iOS 16. This is a free tethered iCloud Bypass for iOS 15 and iOS 16 for A9–A11 devices without signal support. SIM card will not work, but you will gain access to the system.

This is the first tool that can remove iCloud Bypass on iPhones and iPads running the latest iOS 16 – iOS 16.2. Use DarkRa1n tool to turn off Find My iPhone without a password or even unlock Apple ID. It supports all checkm8 devices on iOS 15.0 – 15.7.2, and A11 on iOS 16.

DarkRa1n is a tethered iCloud Bypass for iOS 15 – iOS 16 requiring the latest Palera1n Jailbreak installed on your iPhone or iPad. Therefore, every time you will reboot the device it's required to use a computer to load the iOS system. Otherwise, it will stock on the black screen.

Unlike BlackRa1n, the new DarkRa1n iCloud Bypass doesn't include Palera1n app, and you must jailbreak the system separately before you will use this application. BlackRa1n 1.4 is still available for download (macOS and Linux),but it works only with iOS 15.0 – iOS 15.7.1.

Since version 2.0, DarkRa1n offers fewer features making the iCloud Bypass removing process much easier. There is only one button available that will remove the iCloud Activation Screen from your jailbroken device. All required instructions are displayed on the screen.

DarkRa1n iCloud Bypass for iOS 15 and iOS 16 uses checkm8, and it will work only on older devices. Bypass support for A12 (iPhone XR, XS, XS Max, iPad Mini 5, iPad Air 3, iPad 8),A13, A14, and newer will never be added because Apple fixed the bug allowing to jailbreak.

Activation Lock on iPhones or iPads is a feature designed to prevent anyone else from using your device after being erased if the user doesn't have your password. DarkRa1n can bypass this limitation A9–A11 iDevices making it possible to remove the activation lock on your iPhone.

If you have issues with removing the iCloud Activation Lock you can try alternatively the iRemoval PRO iCloud Bypass tool for Windows. It's based on checkra1n jailbreak, and it works with iOS 12 up to iOS 15. Unlike BlackRa1n, this is a paid per-device service with signal support.

DarkRa1n doesn't care if you have baseband or not. If you use the tool, it will leave your device baseband alone and only touch the Setup files. The signal doesn't work yet, but if it will eventually, this will be available as per-device paid service. Linux version is under development.
