August 2014 Walkthrough needed for secure iphone 5s setup: Used Iphone 5S Sprint 16gb model A1453 Iphone's current software unknown: Ready to be setup, sits at language selection screen(connect to wifi or itunes to continue)

Configuration needed - current most secure OS or IOS or jailbreak configuration to turn this into a 'offline installed' wi-fi phone.

Meaning download the software, put it on a USB, take it to a offline system and attach the Iphone and set it up without connecting to any other computer or network (secure install).

Need to be able to offline install wi-fi apps.

Also looking for apps to switch on/off the sim,gps,cameras,mic and prevent it from talking to cell towers. Only use it as a wi-fi phone for the computer side of the phone.

I don't want to void the warranty unless 3rd party software installation makes it unavoidable to accomplish primary goal. ie. unreversable software install

This phone was erased or reset by the seller, no idea what IOS version if any. It is greatly appreciated any who contribute their time creating a simple walkthrough for us from the point of zero to having a more secure phone that we control and doesn't go through the crapple marketing engine to get software, updates or applications. Tips or any help making it more secure is also appreciated.

Don't know what software to start with, there is no backup as there isn't anything to backup. Studied evasi0n and pangu and read several black hat articles on privacy, tor and other more secure iphone setup's people are switching to in order to give their device freedom.

What setup can you offer to help anonymous

Thank you for your time and intellectual energy :O)

  1. Restore in iTunes to current iOS 7.1.2. Jailbreak with Pangu.

  2. Do you know registered Apple ID and password for the iPhone to gain access and change the ID and password to yours ?

In such a case you need Sprint account to activate. WC
