Please note that the steps to remove palera1n-c are slightly different than removing the legacy and now deprecated palera1n jailbreak, which we showed you in a previous tutorial. So if you’ve used palera1n-c, then you should follow the steps outlined in this piece instead of our older tutorial.

Removing palera1n-c

To remove the palera1n-c jailbreak from your device, follow the steps that we’ve provided for you below:

1) Connect your palera1n-c jailbroken iPhone or iPad to your Mac and trust your computer from the device and trust your device from the computer.

Note: You may not need to do the trusting step if you’ve done it previously, but it’s always best to check.

2) Put your device into DFU mode.

3) Download the latest version of palera1n-c from the website and save it to your Downloads folder.

Note: We reiterate, make sure to put this file in your Downloads folder, or the subsequent steps will not work.

4) Launch a Terminal window and run the following command:

cd Downloads

5) Next, run this command:

palera1n --force-revert

Note: Your device will now be put into Recovery Mode.

6) Put your device into DFU mode.

Another Note: Referring to the image below, if you have an M chip-equipped Mac, then you will need to unplug and re-plug your device back in to resume the jailbreak process. If you have an Intel-equipped Mac, then you can ignore this.
