EFI Locked MacBook Pro - Need Help ASAP!

So I Have a Firmware Locked Mid 2012 A1278 MacBook Pro.

I was wondering could I bypass the EFI lock if I buy a new logic board to swap it out.

Help me please! I was ripped off on eBay!

Contact seller & eBay ASAP!

If the system is locked you need to get your money back here. You can't reward theft by sucking it up by buying a new logic board to replace the locked one.

eBay - Law Enforcement Reporting

Depending on how you payed the seller you may be able to stop the payment. If you used a credit card talk with them some offer online purchase protection (i.e. American Express).

Here is the IFIXIT guide you'll need to follow: MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2012 Logic Board Replacement and here are two possible logic boards:

You may need to replace the SSD as well here. I would get this SSD Enclosure for 2012 & early 2013 MacBook Pro with Retina display and you'll also need to find a friend with a Mac so you can scrub the drive down and prep it up with a clean copy of macOS. If that fails you'll need a new SSD as well.

Would Replacing The Logic Board Even Work I Don't Want To Waste My Money Please Help


Why did you wait so long to turn it on?

It will cost you $800 - 1000 to replace the logic board more than 1/2 again on what you likely paid and more than you would have paid getting a system from a reputable re-seller.


Dispute your PayPal payment.
