How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hi guys! I'm sorry, my question will be a bit Activation-lock related, but it will not be about that at all. I have bought an iPhone 5 2nd hand, and unfortunately i have been tricked, because the back housing of the device is not the pair of the phone's logic board. It means that the IMEI on the back (which is non-Acitvation locked(I checked it before purchasing)) is not the same as the phone's true IMEI(which is Activation locked(turned out after replacing the bad battery)).

I did some research on my friend, Google and I found a glitch which could be used to make iTunes think that my iDevice is activated. (Its basically an apache-server or something like that (XAMPP)) Now, I can sync my data on the phone, it means that i have some sort of access to it, but the phone itself is still sure about its own un-activatednes. So my question is, am I (or will someone ever be) able to take this advantage and for example run jailbreak software on the device, because it's also carrier-locked and I also don't have any correct SIM cards for it.(If this bug is not enough to run jailbreak code please forgive me, I'm not a professional about exploits at all.)

BTW I know part of my question (or the whole, as you wish) is related to Activation Lock but I would appreciate some help. Thank you.

It's stolen or built from stolen/lost parts it will never have an iPod at best or paperweight... It will never activate .... Report it to source of sale or police we do not support any type off activation bypass for icloud .

Serious ... Report them if you have contact details ... Or if you do have their details request ,money etc back.... And threaten you will report to police if they dont give you money back etc .

Well, thanks anyway. I just locked down my iPod touch 4 which was used in the trade.
