An iOS 9 jailbreak was recently released, allowing users to break iOS walls and unwind. However, if you are not a big fan of the new jailbreak, here is how to unjailbreak your iPhone.
Less than a month after iOS 9 was officially released, the Pangu developer team has released an iOS 9 jailbreak, making it one of the fastest jailbreaks we’ve seen in a long time.
Those who want to jailbreak their devices have no doubt already done so and won’t be back any time soon. However, if you’re new to jailbreak and maybe just want to give it a try, you might be hesitant.
The thing is, jailbreaking isn’t for everyone, so if you’re someone who has jailbroken their iPhone and you’re not feeling it right, you’re not completely out of luck in reverting to stock iOS.
You can essentially remove your iPhone to go back to stock iOS as it was before jailbreaking your iPhone and it will be like it never happened.
If you want to go back to stock iOS on your iPhone, here is how to unjailbreak iOS 9 and get it back to normal.
How to Remove Jailbreak
Just like the jailbreak process, the jailbreak process is not difficult at all. In fact, it’s a little easier as it’s done entirely in iTunes.
The first important thing to do is to back up your iPhone. I hope you have backed up your iPhone before jailbreaking, this way you can restore this backup after jailbreak, which would be ideal. However, it would also be good to back up now because you still have backed up all your apps and settings, but not the actual jailbreak, because iTune doesn’t back it up.
In any case, you’ll want to back up your iPhone before jailbreaking it in case something bad happens during the process.
To unjailbreak your iPhone, you don’t need any special tools or software to download other than iTunes, which you probably already have installed.
Start by plugging your iPhone into your computer and open iTunes. Go to your device’s Summary page, and then click .
What this does is completely factory-wipe your iPhone and if there is a newer version than the version you have currently installed, it will update your iPhone to the latest version of iOS.
Before doing that, you need to disable Find My iPhone, which can be done by going to your iPhone and turning it off. You must enter your Apple ID password to confirm the change.
From there, follow the onscreen instructions on your computer and then it will begin restoring your iPhone to factory settings, wiping everything in the process including your jailbreak.
The process should take about 10 minutes or so, but once it’s done, your iPhone will just be wiped and returned to factory settings just like when you bought it.
With your iPhone still plugged in and iTunes open, click to get all your apps and settings back as restoring your iPhone erases everything. Give it another 10-20 minutes to complete this process.
Once complete, you’ll be greeted with an unjailbroken iPhone with all your apps and settings still intact, and it’ll be as if you’ve never jailbroken your iPhone.
Of course, you can always re-jailbreak your iPhone whenever you want, but keep in mind that iOS 9.1 patches existing iOS 9 jailbreak exploits, as long as you don’t update to this version you’ll be fine. Go.
