A jailbreak for iOS 8.4 was released almost immediately after Apple unveiled their latest operating system. For those users who want to remove their iOS 8.4 jailbreak without altering the current iOS software they're using, Saurik's Cydia Impactor is the answer.

Check out the Cydia Impactor here or on Cydia within the BigBoss repo, iDigitalTimes reported. The tool made by Saurik, a.k.a Jay Freeman, still sits in beta, but is said to work properly according to tests conducted by iDownload Blog. The Cydia Impactor also works for iOS 8.3, but earlier versions of the mobile software are not covered.

Jailbreaking your iOS device will not allow a system restore. Apple patches jailbreak exploits immediately and is constantly improving iOS' built-in capabilities. So "if you have a jailbroken iPhone that's getting a little sluggish, there's no way to clear it out with a quick restore without updating to a new, unjailbreakable version of iOS," Cult of Mac explained.

How to Use Cydia Impactor

According to iDigitalTimes, Saurik's jailbreak can be installed right on the jailbroken iOS device. To be safe, users should backup their files using iTunes or iCloud before using the Cydia Impactor app.

"Once you're ready to remove your jailbreak, tap the Cydia Impactor app and and hit delete all data/unjailbreak device," the news outlet explained. The un-jailbreak tool can be found by typing Cydia Impactor into Cydia or accessing its website.

iOS 8.4 Cydia tweaks for iPad

Cydia's iOS 8.4 jailbreak also comes with tweaks for the iPad. Listed below are some of notable features in the app.


CleverFix is perfect for those who only want to use a passcode whenever they go outside. The feature does this function automatically "by detecting whether or not your iPad is connected to your home Wi-Fi network," Gotta Be Mobile wrote. If it's not connected, the passcode will be enabled, and does the opposite if it's not hooked up with a Wi-Fi network.

StatusHUD 2

StatusHUD 2 moves the huge volume HUD to the status bar so it stays out of your screen's view whenever you adjust the volume level, which could be annoying whenever you're watching a video, Gotta Be Mobile explained. The appearance of the volume HUD in the status bar can be altered as well.


An iPad home screen layout can get confusing when users rotate the screen, given that the apps appear in different positions because of the 5x4 layout shift in horizontal mode from a 4x5 layout.

BetterRotate deals with this problem by keeping the grid at 5x4 layout regardless of what the screen orientation is, keeping your apps in the same position to avoid confusion, the news outlet noted.
