How To Unjailbreak The iPhone

Jailbreaking your iPhone lets you utilize Cydia and do other things (Jailbreaking = unlocking Apple’s controls on user permission to install any apps and change any settings). Also, there are other benefits to it. However, at some point in time, you may want to undo what you have done i.e unjailbreak your device. For instance, taking your device to Apple’s service center would require you to unjailbreak iPhone because if they found out it’s jailbroken, they will not possibly cover the repair charges (you will have to pay!).

In either case, if you want the data on your device to stay secure by installing the latest iOS update, you will again need to unjailbreak your iPhone. So, whatever be your case, you definitely need to know how to unjailbreak iPhone.

Steps To Unjailbreak the iPhone

Jailbreaking might require someone geeky enough with the courage to potentially ruin (or “brick”) the device. However unjailbreaking is not as risky.

Follow the steps mentioned below in order to unjailbreak your iPhone:

  1. Make sure you have downloaded and installed iTunes successfully on your Mac or Windows system.
  2. Connect your iPhone to the computer and launch iTunes.
  3. As soon as you are connected, you will be prompted to “Trust” or “Do Not Trust” the computer. Of course, you need to tap on “Trust” to allow the computer successfully connect with the device.
  4. After successfully connecting the device, you need to click on the device icon as shown in the image below.

  5. When you click on the device icon, you will get a window which summarizes the information of your device (storage, updates, etc.,) If it’s the first time with iTunes, it will possibly start backing up your device by now.If the backup process starts, wait for it to complete because you may need the backup later.Do note that if you already had your iPhone backed up before jailbreaking, you can still perform the backup successfully and use it later.

    Fret not, Cydia apps do not get backed up, only the default data gets backed up. So, even if you do not have a previous backup you can still generate the same after jailbreaking.

  6. Now, to undo what you did (i.e., jailbreak), we need to restore the device back to its original state. You can use any of your previous backup files to restore (as per your requirement). However, before proceeding to restore the device, make sure you turned off  “Find My iPhone” service. It needs to be disabled in order to perform the restoration.
  7. While on the device summary window, scroll down to find backup and restore option as shown in the image below.

  8. Now, simply click on it to start restoring your iPhone. The device will restart and you will be asked whether you would like to restore it from your backup or not, proceed with confirmation to successfully restore the device that includes only the system applications and data you backed up excluding jailbreak applications from Cydia.

And, it is done! You have successfully restored your iPhone to the original state that is much more secure than a jailbroken device.

Untethered iOS 7.1 Jailbreak Not Possible

Untethered iOS 7.1 Jailbreak Not Possible

After months of rumors and beta releases, earlier today Apple finally released iOS 7.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The update brings several user interface tweaks and activates the CarPlay feature. It also brings bug fixes and performance improvements. One of the exploits that it plugs is the one used by the evasi0n jailbreak tool, as confirmed by legendary iOS hacker @MuscleNerd. The exploit existed in iOS 7.0 and all subsequent incremental updates, but since it has been plugged in the latest release, that means untethered iOS 7.1 jailbreak is not possible, at least not immediately.

    iOS 7.1 Beta 5 Closes More Jailbreak Exploits

    iOS 7.1 Beta 5 Closes More Jailbreak ExploitsIt has been a little over a month since the Evad3rs team release their untethered Evasi0n iOS 7 jailbreak for iOS devices. Now the bad news is that if you were hoping to upgrade to iOS 7.1, you might want to hold off on doing so because according to reports, it looks like Apple is wasting no time in closing up the exploits used to jailbreak iOS 7. We guess this is to be expected, although there are times when Apple misses an exploit here and there that allows the team to continue jailbreaking the iOS platform even after updates.

    Apple had reportedly closed off one critical exploit in iOS 7.1 beta 4, and now according to Evasi0n hacker, iH8sn0w, it seems that with the recent release of the latest iOS 7.1 beta 5, it closed an additional number of exploits that could have been used to make a future jailbreak. This is not to say that jailbreaking it would be impossible, but it would definitely make things a lot harder. Of course you can choose to keep your jailbreak by not updating to iOS 7.1, but given that iOS 7.1 is bringing about a host of major changes and some redesigns, chances are you might be tempted to update in order to experience these changes. There’s still no word on when iOS 7.1 will be released to the public, so for the sake of jailbreakers out there, here’s hoping the hackers will be able to find something new between now and then.
