    I'm looking to erase my iPhone 6, but keep the jailbreak. On previous phones I've used iLex, but the repo appears to be invalid in Cydia. Is there another way to erase all the content my phone and keep my jailbreak?

    Thanks!

    Cydia Eraser is probably what you're looking for.

    Thanks. That's what I ended up using. Got stuck on the boot logo with a full progress bar, but did a hard reset and it appears to have worked normally.

    Trying to use Pangu, but the damn app won't recognize my phone. Have tried to restart both my computer and phone, switch cables, use different USB ports, nothing has worked. Let it sit plugged in for 3 hours to see if it would just take a while to recognize it.

    Any ideas?

    Does iTunes or your computer detect your iPhone?

    Go to settings and trust the profile for the app under settings>general>profile and device management

    Yes iTunes detects the phone and I've already trusted the machine.

    I installed Pangu on my other machine (Windows instead of Mac) and it detected the phone right away. Unfortunately, now I'm stuck in a loop where it asks me to turn off auto time zone and set the date to August 20th. I've done that, but it won't move on to the next step. Tried restarts and it makes no difference.

    I guess you are not running the jb for ios 9.3 then and are running the older one for lesser fw one that uses a computer. That is an important point that you did not state.

    I'm running 9.0.2 which I believe is the last fully untethered jailbreak available. 9.3 required a re-jailbreak after restart, didn't it?
