Frequently Asked Questions:

Jailbreaking then gives you the ability to install 3rd-party apps and tweaks to customize and improve your device.

Jailbreaking is not illegal. In 2012, The Library of Congress ruled it as a legal exemption to the DMCA, or Digital Millennium Copyright Act, making it legal.

When your device resprings, the homepage and the iOS user interface are restarted. Most tweaks require you to “respring” your device for the changes to take effect without rebooting your phone.

Recovery Mode is a useful feature for when some part of the iPhone operating system becomes damaged or corrupted and will not start up correctly. This can happen during a failed jailbreak attempt. 

  • What is DFU Mode?

DFU Mode allows you to interact with the operating system without loading iOS or the boot loader. DFU means Device Firmware Upgrade but should not be confused with Recovery Mode, as in functional terms, it is different. DFU is typically used as a last resort should things go badly wrong on your iPhone or iPad, but some tools also use it as part of the process to jailbreak your device.

    • Hi Slayer,

      It is not recommended to restore factory settings after jailbreaking a device as it can often cause problems and may not entirely remove the jailbreak. However, if you still want to restore your device to its factory settings, here are the steps you can follow:

      1. Connect your device to your computer and open iTunes.
      2. Go to the “Summary” tab for your device and click on the “Restore iPhone” or “Restore iPad” button.
      3. Click “Restore” to confirm that you want to restore your device to its factory settings.
      4. Wait for the restore process to complete. This may take some time, so be patient.
      5. Set up your device as a new device or restore it from a backup.

      Remember that restoring your device to its factory settings will erase all the data and settings on your device. This includes any jailbreak modifications you have made and any personal data you have stored on the device. Make sure to back up your device before restoring it to its factory settings.
