So that you can undo a jailbreak on your iPad – Computer Total

I have an acquaintance bought an iPad. In itself, it all works fine, but it’s jailbroken. What exactly does that mean and can I make it undone?

When you ask an “expert” what is the main difference between iOS (Apple) and Android (Google), then he / she will probably tell you that Android users are much freer to make choices than iOS. That is absolutely true, and it ensures that iOS is such a stable operating system. It is impossible that you make a mess of the interface (because you have to stick to certain rules). If you like iOS, but still want to have a bit more freedom, you can jailbreak an iPad. Lees also: 15 cozy iPad games for Christmas

iOS offers less freedom than Android, but is therefore becoming cleaner and more stable.

Why / not jailbreak?

Jailbreaking is an apt description of what the process. Namely: frees the device restrictions (prison) that Apple imposed. It means that you have more options directly. This allowed people who had jailbroken their iPad, much earlier multitasking and copy and paste text than people who were neatly to Apple’s rules. Not infrequently spiekt Apple into the possibilities that have jailbroken devices, and it offers its own later (stable) version of to. Who has a jailbroken iPad, will also get access to an alternative app store, one in which applications are not subject to Apple’s approval regime.

In short, liberty, freedom and more freedom. Ideal? Certainly not. The great strength of the iPad is that the tablet is always stable. There really is an app crashes sometimes, but you can not mess up the settings. You can not pollute your iPad and you need not be afraid of malware-like apps. Those assurances have you no longer like your jailbroken iPad. It really is not that your iPad into an unstable and dangerous tablet, jailbreak has certainly advantages. But if you want to continue to benefit from easy to retrofit, not want to hassle with unstable apps and you want do not worry about malicious apps, then jailbreak an unwise idea

Jailbreaking has advantages, but also makes your iPad or less stable.


That jailbreak you can undo. Handy for your second iPad which is jailbroken, and also useful for people who have jailbroken itself but which do not like the result. Reversing the process is fortunately not very complicated. But before you do that, it’s wise to have a reservekopie make your iPad. That goes in exactly the same way as with an iPad that is not jailbroken, so using Settings / iCloud / Backup . It is then good to know that a backup only the data secures your iPad, and so takes no information about the jailbreak. Obviously need to make a backup if you’ve purchased the iPad and just want unjailbreaken directly because you are probably no data on it

Back up your data if you already have on your iPad.


To unjailbreaken your iPad, you have to set this first iPad in recovery mode. You do this by connecting the tablet with the Lightning cable to your PC, and then simultaneously press and hold the On / Off button and the Home button. Once it goes off, you let the on / off button, but hold down the Home button. White screen with black floral will appear and then you see a picture of an iTunes logo with a Lightning cable. This means that your iPhone is in recovery mode. Open iTunes and click on iPad restore . The latest version of iOS will be downloaded, and when it is put on your iPhone, iPad you will no longer be jailbroken.

Once in recovery mode, iTunes can easily recover your iPad so that the jailbreak is undone.

crossy-road icon-large During the holidays you have something else on your mind then updating the administatie or cleaning up the garden . You want to just sit back play a game. Crossy Road is exactly what you need. This has not previously discussed iculture game is a modern version of Frogger. You know, the game where you have to cross the street while the raging traffic has to dodge

Crossy Road:. Frogger, but than otherwise

Crossy Road came in October and has since received some minor updates that the game completely ‘off’ have made. The latest update was published just before Christmas and includes four new game characters, including a dragon, kerstkip and piggy bank. Yes, this is a game that will slurp up a lot of time, but that does not matter if you are a few days off. The secret to this game is the frustration when it fails and the triumphant feeling of victory if it works one time indeed.

crossy road 1 crossy road 2

Crossy Road makes a good impression: it looks like Frogger, but in an endless variation and surprises along the way. The biggest difference is that you not only have to make a crossing frog, but with all sorts of characters that affect the game. The game comes in a pixel style and is free to play, without that you are obliged to make in-app purchases. This is not mandatory, because without buying experience you enjoy this game. The kerstkip is available for free in the game but for dragon, ghost, penguin, piggy bank and other figures you have to pay € 0.89. There are no pop-ups and banners in the game

The thing about the game is that you will be challenged. As the friends will succeed to score, then you must also succeed. The leaderboards on Game Center challenge you to run as far as possible, like in (again!) Flappy Bird . The best part is when friends are around as well, so that you can beat each other alternately. Your score is a number, for example 153, 292 or higher, easy to compare.

Crossy Road: Timing is everything

The point Crossy Road to the correct timing and it is quite difficult. Because each playfield is made randomly, the game is always different. Along the way you may stop at a traffic island or sidewalk, but not too long. You must concoction when to run and when it is better to wait. You can use Crossy Road in portrait or landscape mode. Lying is most useful if you want to keep a good view of the oncoming traffic. While playing you should always be careful and choose the right moment to stabbing on a street.

Conclusion Crossy Road Review

Crossy Road is a fun free game for some time to play with it store, even if you do not in-app purchases. The game basically we all know from Frogger, so you can go straight to work without doing extensive tutorials. Some characters you can buy, the rest can be unlocked with coins you earn in the game.


  • Nice variation on well-known game.
  • Funny pixel style.
  • Also playable if you do not have additional purchases.


  • Can be frustrating when the game just a little too difficult for you or your friends score much better.
