How to Unjailbreak your iPhone, iPod or iPad

Jailbreaking is fun, but if, for whatever reason, you decide you no longer want a jailbroken device, we've got your back.
The good news is that its a very straight forward process to revert your iDevice back to its unjailbroken state whilst maintaining the data on your device. You will of course loose any apps you installed with Cydia and any data associated with those apps. Instructions after the break...

Steps to Unjailbreak:

  1. Plug your iDevice into your PC or Mac
  2. Open iTunes and select your device from the left hand menu
  3. Click the restore button in the right hand window pane.

  4. You will be prompted to back up your device so go ahead and do this.

  5. Now iTunes will back up your device and restore iOS to its clean state.
  6. When the restore is complete and your device reboots iTunes will ask if wish to restore from the back up you just made.
  7. And relax. You are back to a clean unjailbroken device with all your data still intact.



  2. now there is still some jailbroken data on your idevice lol

  3. is it really working??

  4. i jailbroken tethered with REDSN0W and it didnt work, It broke my iPod, i only have my games, music, settings, stocks, youtube, videos, itunes, news stand, utilities and weather... "(

  5. this doesnt work anymore since apple is detecting the jailbreak

    you need to use tiny umbrella when restoring

  6. I did the steps and restored my iPhone.
    It is working fine, but the jailbreak is not gone! My sbsettings is still working. I can't test if cracked games are working though, because i only use apps that I bought on app store.

    So, that's it. I think I'll have to "set up as a new iphone".
