Hey /r/Jailbreak, I know there have been a lot of questions of how to restore without updating. This is difficult since Cydia Eraser hasn’t been updated for iOS 10.x yet. That’s why I am introducing “Project: Yalu Gone”
Project: Yalu Gone is a GUI application that will attempt to remove jailbreak data from your device. This will allow you to use the Erase All Content and Settings feature to reset your device. (This will not replace missing or damaged system files). After processing and removing jailbreak files, Project: Yalu Gone will redirect you to the Settings app and will allow you to begin the Erase All Content and Settings procedure.
This is NOT a replacement for Cydia Eraser, as noted above: doesn’t replace missing or damaged system files. This is just a placeholder until a better solution is available.
How Does it Work?
Project: Yalu Gone is a GUI application that runs system commands in order to remove the files. There are just a few steps:
- Open the app.
- Press the button
- Accept the prompt(s)
- Wait (about 2-5 minutes)
- Press “Erase All Content and Settings” in the Settings app.
- Built for iOS 10.x – iOS 10.2
- Does not repair missing or damaged system files
- Works with or without stashing
- Shows alerts on progress
How Can You Help?
Project: Yalu Gone is still in beta stages. Want to test it out, find bugs, and help with development? Request closed beta access. (It is unlikely anything will go wrong, but it is recommended that you only use the beta if you have a spare device, or need this as a last resort. You may need to fully restore with iTunes if any bugs do occur).
