I have a JB iPhone 6 running iOS 8.1.1. I cracked the screen and want to get it replaced at apple using my applecare + before it runs out next month but the genius told me to unjailbreak it first bc the calibration system would cause it to brick. I downloaded Cydia eraser and this is what I get:



Is it not possible to unjailbreak my device? Should I just go to a 3rd party place and suck it up and spend $120?
[doublepost=1477253227][/doublepost]Update:
I found this on redit, saurik said a year ago in response to this error: "The iPhone 6 and 6+ did not ship full OTA updates for iOS 8.1.2 for some reason. I am sorry, but at this time, Impactor will not function on these devices for this version of iOS :(. (I might be able to support it at some point by doing on-the-fly reconstruction from the OTA from 8.1.1 via the patches to 8.1.2.)"

Does anyone know if he has fixed this issue?

There is nothing you can do. You have to restore to IOS 10 and wait for new jailbreak. Sorry....

You can, but the cost.......
Yeah it's still worth it to me to keep my jailbreak. I'm also considering getting a replacement 6 before my applecare runs out next month. Would I be disappointed w the 9.3 jb?

Haven't you already done this, with all the consequences and discussions that resulted from that?
Yes but that was batteries +, I have since learned that they use low quality screens.

It seems like the underlying issue there wasn't so much the screen but the slight bend of the frame/phone itself.

I'm not a fan of it but I run it on my iPad mini and pro just so I can get a few tweaks, themes and movie apps mainly. I much prefer the untethered JB running on my 6S+ (9.0.2)
Untethered is far more stable and IMHO. Although I haven't really experienced this issue but a buddy of mine has occasionally had to reapply the JB via PC because the reboot function back into JN status would not work after a reset of the device. There were times he was without JB all day.
That sucks!

The thing you don't have control of is what version of iOS would come with the replacement phone. Possible that it could still be on 9.3.something but it could also be on iOS10. There isn't a jailbreak for anything past 9.3.3 so if it's on 9.3.4 or 9.3.5 then you're SOL.
