    earth, for now.
    Hey guys, gals and fellow aliens!

    Curious question - I jailbroke my iPhone 6s Plus awhile ago, currently on iOS 9.0.2, and I Gotta say, it's been a wild ride. I really loved checked out new tweaks and customizing the OS to many different looks.

    My question is this - How can I unJailbreak my iOS 9.0.2 iPhone, without having to restore to the latest iOS 9.2.1.

    I'm done some googling, and it seems that -- using iTunes is the only method?

    Im curious if there is a way to Remove the Jailbreak, and on the device itself, Erase all contents and settings, and stay on IOS 9.0.2 and be unjailbroken?

    -- I may wanna jailbreak later on, this is why I am asking :)

    The only way to remove the jailbreak is to restore your phone through iTunes which will install the latest version of iOS. Doing erase all content and settings on a jail broken iPhone is a big NO NO it will cause your phone to boot loop and the only way to fix is DFU and restore. So if you want to stay jail broken then I would recommend doing nothing.

    Or, you can try to use Cydia Impactor from this beta repo...
    But beware, many people didn't make it, so at the end of the day, they were forced to restore to the latest IOS.
    I did it successfuly though, on my 5S :)

    Used Cydia Impactor on my 6 plus last week on 9.0.2 successfully. After it was done and reboot itself, it hung at the apple logo forever so I did a hard reboot then it started at the welcome screen.

    That's an extremely misleading topic title.
