Has anyone had any luck unlocking the A1706 and if so what did you use and what steps did you take?


Thanks!

No luck at all. I cannot get the PI to detect the chip at all. I need to get this Mac unlocked in a bad way. :(

I got the A1708 done with Pi and the header clip I bought from this group. Battery attached had dumps no problem and write with no issues!

I have a new bios chip I am going to put to the board. This will also change the serial number as well. :)

I hve an A1706 Mid 2017 that needs to be unlocked. I managed to read the chip, using the clip purchased on this site. I can not read on it, gives error. I had to keep the power button pressed to be able to read the chip. Read was ok, then I edited the file, can not write to the chip though. Any advise?

I´m using the usual ebay sofi programmer that I have always used, but also always gives me problem regarding energy to be able to write on chips. Any tips also on how to properly provide the power when read/writting chips? Because that is always my only issue when doing these tasks... THANKS!!!

What do you mean with "pinout is different"? could you please explain the differences for writting than for reading? I could read perfectly, I think it's a problem with voltage. I´m using the mini-pro programmer, the TL866. Maybe if I swith to a SOFI 8 it will work...

What's the exact chip in this machine? mi programmer software once it reads the chip ID it identifies it as a macronix, but don't know which is exactly from all those... is it 1.7V or is it a 3.3V?

any news on this topic? I can't remember if last time I managed. Will try again with another machine from same year. I think pre pram reset is needed, and also battery full charged, will try again, but any tip is welcome, thanks!!
