How to Unjailbreak iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch Without Restore

Jailbreak” is a familiar word for some of iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch users. If your device is jailbroken, you will have freedom in installing the applications which are not permitted in App Store. But you may change your mind, and want to unjailbreak  your iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch for some reason, such as:

  • You want to turn back the iOS performance.
  • There are some bugs caused by certain tweak or application that you’ve installed from Cydia.
  • You are planning to sell your device.

There is a new way to do that. Creator of Cydia app and service, Jay Freeman (nickname: Saurik) has released Cydia Impactor, a tweak that lets you unjailbreak iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch without restore.
