Restore a jailbroken iphone without updating

Support new Special Edition (PRODUCT)RED i Phone 7 and i Phone 7 Plus 3.

In this tech note, Apple suggests that jailbreaking your i OS device may lead to security vulnerabilities, instability, shortened battery life, unreliability, disruption of services and inability to apply future software updates.

It may result in Apple denying service for your device.

IBTimes UK brings you a comprehensive step-by-step guide to restore your jailbroken i Phone, i Pad or i Pod Touch to factory settings in just a few simple steps.

Users should ensure that they meet all the pre-requisites given below, before proceeding with the actual restoration steps.

Jailbreaking your i Phone or i Pad is a risky process that we can't unreservedly recommend, but it remains popular among those who wish to install unofficial apps and tweaks on their smartphone or tablet via the Cydia marketplace.

Here's how to jailbreak your i Phone or i Pad in i OS 10 - and i OS 9, too. In essence, it means bypassing the locks put in place by Apple on its i Phones and i Pads and thus gaining access to a large number of apps that Apple hasn't authorised.

We recommend only using reputable sources, such as those pre-loaded in Cydia, and staying away from any pirated repositories – it may be tempting to download tweaks for free, but you might be handing over access to all your personal information at the same time!

Apple itself offers advice on the subject of jailbreaking (although you may feel that the company is biased in this respect since it wants to continue getting its cut of the revenue from official app sales).

i OS users will no longer have to worry about voiding their hardware warranty or forfeiting Apple's in-warranty technical support or facing unwanted issues after jailbreaking their device.

It is possible to regain the warranty status or remove existing jailbreak tweaks on your i Device by simply restoring it to factory settings.
