    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...http://apt.saurik.com/beta/cy-impactor/.
    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.
