Uninstalling a jailbreak isn’t as simple as deleting the app. When you uninstall unc0ver, you need to go in the app and restore parts of the OS to how they were before your device was jailbroken.

This guide is useful for people who want to install checkra1n, as it requires that unc0ver is removed first, or just people who want to unjailbreak their device.

If you’re proceeding to installing checkra1n, we recommend making a system backup through iTunes after you remove unc0ver.

Installing the application

  1. Open the unc0ver application
  2. Tap on the settings icon in the top right-hand corner
  3. Uncheck all the options
  4. Enable Restore RootFS
  5. Press Done in the top right-hand corner
  6. Go to the jailbreak tab and press Restore RootFS
    • If the button says Jailbreak, go back and check to see if Restore RootFS is the only option enabled
  7. When prompted about restoring, tap OK
    • This may take some time
    • If it fails, try again from the beginning
  8. When finished, tap OK again and your device will restart
