RootFS Restore is an in-built jailbreak removal function in the unc0ver jailbreak for iOS11 – iOS14.5.1. It will restore your root file system to how it was before you activated unc0ver for the first time. It will not remove user data from jailbreak-related files such as your tweaks.
- Open Cydia, go to the Installed tab, and manually delete all tweaks installed on your device.
- Open the unc0ver app and go to the Settings page. Enable Restore RootFS, and click on “Yes” in the prompt and “Done” in the upper right corner.
- Go back to Unc0ver main screen and press Restore RootFS or Re-jailbreak.
- Wait for the process to finish. And you will get a notice saying RootFS has been successfully restored. Press OK, and the device will reboot.
If it’s an “an error occurred” message instead of the one on the screenshot, force reboot the device and repeated the steps.
- Back to the iPhone screen, all jailbreaking files have now been uninstalled and Cydia removed. Next, you can long-press the unc0ver icon and uninstall unc0ver.
