This can come in very handy when you want to sell your device, as it allows you to remove the data and all your personal data without having to restore your device.
Since restoring your device would mean installing the latest i OS software update, Cydia Impactor gives you the option to remain at the i OS software update that can be jailbroken, which can be very valuable.
This is Google’s real plan for battling Android fragmentation: Update as much of the operating system and its apps as possible without going through device manufacturers or carriers.
Older devices aren’t as outdated as they used to be. For example, when Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich came out, it brought an entirely redesigned interface, performance improvements, and even APIs limited to Android 4.0.
A powerful new tool has just been released for jailbreakers to “unjailbreak”.
It’s called Cydia Impactor, and it’s an on-device tool that lets you remove and revert all changes made to a device to return it to its stock configuration.
Other than updating through i Tunes, you can also download i OS 5 IPSW directly from the links below and install the firmware manually.Build number is 9A334, these links are hosted on Apple’s servers, if you are having trouble downloading IPSW, right-click and choose “Save As”.Apple TV 2 has also been updated, but is technically on i OS 4.4 with a custom build of 9A334v.Certain apps wouldn’t run on devices without Android 4.0.Google Chrome required Android 4.0, so devices that were never upgraded from Android 2.3 Gingerbread still can’t use Google Chrome today. Android 4.1 was also extremely important, making the interface much more smooth and less laggy with “Project Butter.” Compared to Android 4.0 and Android 4.1, the most recent versions of Android are minor updates.
