Did you jailbreak your phone using the Pangu tool released in July? Are you regretting the decision? Well, we have good news for you. Saurik, the person behind the Cydia Impactor, updated the app, now called Cydia Eraser. It will remove every trace of the jailbreak, and supports iOS 9.3.3.
Saurik could not have timed the update better, considering the iOS 9.3.4 started rolling out to Apple devices recently. In truth, the Pangu jailbreak tool missed the mark with this time. Its developers offered excellent jailbreaks for the previous iOS version but offered a half-cooked jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3.
People who used the Pangu tool released in July regret it. Some even reported that the toll brought malware issues. As we reported earlier, the Pangu developer did not distribute the malware. The problem appears to have originated from the hosting site of the tool.
The point here is that you can now go back to the previous state of the phone before the jailbreak. Previously, Saurik warned that Cydia Eraser only worked with the iOS 9.0. But after the recent update, iOS 9.3.3 can restore their phones to their previous state.
Of course, iOS users can quickly restore their phones using iTunes. But the iTunes process is long. Cydia Eraser restores the phone to an “out-of-the-box” state, and you will be able to jailbreak the phone again.
Removing the jailbreak is not the only reason to use Cydia Eraser. If you plan on selling the device, Cydia Eraser will restore the phone to default settings. With the iPhone 7 around the corner, many iPhone users are considering selling their devices and add a little cash to get the new device.
Keep in Mind that Cydia Eraser removes everything from the phone, meaning all apps will disappear. Therefore, only use the application if you are having stability issues with your jailbroken iPhone.
