    Do you want to go back to jailbreak at some point or just stock and keep it stock? If the latter and you backed up your phone, just restore to latest

    Which jailbreak and which version?

    Back up.

    Open iTunes, attach phone to computer.

    Turn phone off and then place it in DFU Mode.

    When iTunes detects your phone in 'Recovery Mode' then upgrade and restore.

    Restore from back up.

    You will be upgraded.

    If being upgraded is not what you want then maybe take a look at Cydia Eraser.

    Also, if you're doing this because of warranty you should know that Apple doesn't care about your jailbreak.

    I don’t believe Cydia eraser works with iOS 11. It’s semirestore, maybe, or running an uninstall script possibly if he wants to preserve the version he’s on

    If it’s for a repair, I’d install tvOS profile To prevent a habitual OTA from the tech, and boot in stock mode and hide the JB icon in a folder even tho diagnostics likely pull up some crash reports related to jb

    And they prolly don’t care if you’re paying for the repair out of pocket. Might not even care period lol ymmv

    Apple's policy on warranty repairs for jailbroken devices changed about 3 years ago. Apple now has to prove that a jailbreak caused the problem in order to deny you service.

    The absolute worst they can do is ask you to restore before giving you service.

    Yeah I have is jailbroke on iOS 11.1 with electra. I just don’t think jailbreaking is for me. Don’t get me wrong there is some nice features on it. But my battery life took a major hit. So I just rebooted my phone and took the jailbreak off. So I decided I would just take it off my phone.

    So I can backup my phone and restore and I will still have all my data? It will just restore me to 11.2.6?

    And take every trace of a jailbreak off my phone?

    Pretty much. I mean set up as new is always preferable but what it stores in the backup is usually settings specific to jb tweaks should you jb again otherwise it’s useless extra stuff somewhere in the backup that should never be accessed stock or affect anything Stock

    And fair enough, jb isn’t for everyone! FWIW it gets less user friendly as time and iOS goes on and you increasingly
    Gotta know what you’re doing and want it to have a mind blowing experience imo

    Restoring from backup will restore some system files that were related to your jailbreak tweaks. I had a tweak in iOS 9 that I used to change the sound (not voice) that Siri makes when initiated...changed it to a silent soundfile...and it's STILL in there in iOS 11.2.6 after two restores from backup.

    De-install all JB tweaks and make a new backup. Then restore it to 11.2.6 and put the BU back

    If you have done it by the method you quoted me on, then yes.
