How to remove the Taurine jailbreak without restoring your iPhone or iPad

Many Taurine jailbreak users are content with how their iPhones and iPads turn out post-jailbreak. But if for any reason you decide to revert to a vanilla version of iOS or iPadOS 14 or perhaps even develop the urge to try a different jailbreak tool instead, it’s important to remember that you can use the Taurine jailbreak’s rootFS restore feature to roll your handset back to a pre-jailbroken state.

IAmSpeed simplifies the process of backing up jailbreak tweaks for when switching jailbreaks

So you’ve built up a rock-solid jailbreak tweak arsenal that you’re certain you want to continue using for the foreseeable future. And let’s hypothetically also say that you’re the type of person who likes to rootFS restore and switch jailbreaks from time to time, just to see what works best for you.

How can you make re-installing all your jailbreak tweaks a swift and painless process after switching to a different jailbreak? Why, with a jailbreak tweak backup solution, of course!

IAmLazy makes it a breeze to back-up and restore tweaks and add-ons after switching jailbreaks

Whenever a new jailbreak tool launches, jailbreakers are often antsy to try it out. This includes those who might already be pwned by way of a different tool – such as unc0ver users when the newer Taurine tool dropped, for example.

Perhaps one of the most problematic elements of switching from one jailbreak to another is the realization that you’ll need to set up your device’s third-party add-ons all over again. Whether you’re restoring to a fresh, bone-stock installation of iOS or using the rootFS restore feature to un-jailbreak your device, you’ll still need to reinstall all your jailbreak tweaks to get up and running again.

How to view and recover previous versions of images and PDFs in Preview

Preview Browse Previous Versions on Mac

As you probably know, Preview on Mac automatically saves changes you make to an image or PDF file. While most times this is benefit, it can also be a detriment. You can create a duplicate before you start working on the file, but if you forget, then you’ve just changed the original. And this isn’t always what you want.

At the same time, you may make several changes that you decide you don’t want to use after all. But again, you’ve changed and saved the file already.

Here, we’ll show you how to view and recover previous versions of PDFs and images in Preview. This allows you to go back and grab an earlier version to use or copy.
