    I want to remove my jailbreak and I'm not sure how. Does updating to iOS 8 remove the jailbreak? I'm running iOS 7.1.2 on an iPhone 5s. Thanks

    Connect your device to iTunes and click Restore. iTunes will then download iOS 8.0.2 and restore the device and remove the jailbreak. Note: This will erase everything on the phone. Make sure you have a backup before restoring.

    Restore your iPhone, once complete it will ask you if you want to restore from a backup or set it up as a new phone. You can do either of those two options.

    Completely agree white6.

    I returned my 6/6plus bc stock iOS is terrible. Keeping my 5S jail break and use predictive keyboard for that iOS 8 feel too.

    If you restore from backup, you will have some jailbreak data on your phone that will eat up some storage, but you won't have to re-install all of your apps, music, and pics. Pros and cons either way.

    There are two way to remove the jailbreak from a jailbroken device.
    1. Restore your device with iTunes on a computer.
    2. Use RecoveryTool Fix Recovery.
