The Pangu jailbreak for iOS 9.2 – iOS 9.3.3 is semi-tethered and requires you to jailbreak every time your device reboots. If you’ve already jailbroken your iPhone or iPad but would like to return to stock iOS due to issues you’re facing then the best solution is to restore your device to iOS 9.3.3 to delete the Pangu jailbreak.
In this tutorial, we will show how you can unjailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and restore safely.
Note: restoring your iOS device will erase all the content and settings so make sure you already have a complete backup of your device. It’s best to use the backup that was taken before the jailbreak to prevent issues when restoring it. In case you don’t have one, take a backup of your device right now using iTunes or iCloud before proceeding with the steps below.
