Hey readers! In this step by step guide, I’ll let you know how you can remove jailbreak from your iPhone, iPad. You need unc0ver jailbreak utility to unjailbreak iPhone, whether you are jailbroken through unc0ver or Electra. This can be done in both cases either you want a fresh jailbreak, or you want to remove jailbreak forever.
If you’re having problems with Cydia and it shows you a lot of errors which you don’t seem to fix. Or you just have too many jailbreak tweaks you want to get rid of. This process doesn’t require any SHSH/SHSH2 Blobs or doesn’t require any FutureRestore or even a computer.
You will definitely remain on the same iOS version and all your personal will remain safe. Anything that is removed through this remove jailbreak process is only the jailbreak data so that you can start fresh as you have never been jailbroken before in your device.
As I told you before, we are going to use unc0ver utility to unjailbreak iPhone. This utility is very different as compared to all other jailbreak utilities. It allows you to remove jailbreak if you want to, it has a built-in feature for that.
In my view, this is the only jailbreak utility with the removal tool inside.
Step By Step Process To Unjailbreak iPhone
In order to remove the unc0ver or Electra jailbreak on iOS 12 with anything it has installed e.g. files, tweaks and themes and other stuff and want to start fresh. Make sure you are not jailbroken, but if you’re, then reboot your phone.
- Step 1:
Go to settings, there is a toggle function named as Restore RootFS(rec0ver), enable it.
- Step 2:
After toggling that, come back and hit Jailbreak button, it will start running the exploits and it’ll clean up everything. Instead of jailbreaking, it’s going to remove jailbreak folders, files and so on. Everything related to jailbreak will be destroyed so that you end up at the stage that you’ve never been jailbroken before.
- Step 3:
Do not exit the application during the process and it will show you two pop-ups. When the first one is shown, at this stage it’ll restore the old snapshots and will make everything clean, press OK. After that, another popup will show stating RootFS has been successfully restored. when you press OK here, your device will restart and all the jailbreak tweaks, files, themes and folders will be cleaned up and after reboot, you’re on stage as you have never run the unc0ver before.
- Step 4:
After the restart, the old jailbreak is completely removed but there will be the tweaks, Cydia and unc0ver icons at home screen but they won’t work, they will not open because they are completely erased during the remove jailbreak process. If the icons don’t annoy you let the be there.
Note: After Remove Jailbreak
But if this harm you, you can simply reset your device to get rid of them. Do not forget to take backup of your device using iTunes or iCloud. As I mentioned earlier, unjailbreak iPhone process only removes the jailbreak related data. But the reset will remove all the data including your personal data.
Now you’re I completely fresh stage with unjailbreak device, if you install the jailbreak again then you don’t have tweaks or themes installed because you’re jailbreaking clean again.
This unjailbreak iPhone process is useful when you have applications having jailbreak detection, and you cannot use the unc0ver jailbreak while you use them. Or if you want to start fresh in order to fix Cydia errors. If you jailbreak again Cydia will get installed again with that and will fix the previous problems you faced.
This is how you completely remove jailbreak from your iPhone or iPad. If you have any problems or questions kindly leave them below. Or if the process worked perfectly for you then comment about that too.
