    He probably didnt have find my iphone on. If that is on it wont let you restore your firmware unless you put the device in dfu. Then even if you were to do that itunes wont let you get to the part where you can restore your backup without first entering the icloud info of the person findmyiphone was on for.
    So either he didnt realize it was off or apple has a serious glitch on their hands lol.

    iCloud unlock loop hole  iOS 8.1.2-imageuploadedbymodmyi1418270032.588913.jpg this is not iCloud lock
    after a dfu mode restore it rebooted I hit new then hit back up from my ip6 which is mine and it backed it up rebooted with my Apple ID email asking to my password

    Exactly, that is not the screen that comes up for iCloud activation if someone had findmyiphone turned on. It's more likely that they just didn't have that on then some glitch in 8.1.2 where it skips that part.

    This is the screen that will have come up after restoring if findmyiphone was on:

    I can confirm Cmds 187 findings!
    I also got an iCloud locked 5S.
    DFU restore with iOS 8.1.2, then iTunes offers new setup or restore from backup, never got that before! So restored from backup, had to confirm my Apple iD with my password and works perfect now. TaiG JB and Bob is your uncle. LOL

    Well, if that is truth, than it should be immediately reported to Apple.....I just don't believe it.

    Just tried this on my iPod Touch 5G. Did not work. Right after the restore iTunes presented me with this as it should:


    So again, the more likely scenario that this did work for anyone is that they had findmyiphone off. Which isn't out of the realm of possibility, especially for jailbreakers since these last few jailbreaks have all required for it to be off. So you would have to remember to turn it back on after the jailbreak.
