These instructions allow you to uninstall iDroid and openiboot without needing to restore (which allows you to keep your data). By far, the easiest and best way to uninstall iDroid is to restore your firmware, but that requires a wipe of all your data as well as the possibility of needing to jailbreak again.

Before you begin, why do you want to remove iDroid? :(

Remove openiboot

Everything you will need for this portion will be under the utils folder of the iDroid release.

  1. Turn on your phone, you should be greeted with the usual openiboot menu.
  2. Press the button on the top of your phone to select the openiboot console and press home to select
  3. Run sudo ./oibc. Your terminal should now show the same text that's displayed on your phone's screen, if it does not, most likely iDroid is booting (there should be not be an image of Tux)
  4. Wait for all the text to scroll up the screen until the screen reads "WELCOME TO OPENIBOOT" and enter in uninstall.
  5. Once it is done, the console will read Done with uninstallation!
  6. Type in reboot and boot into the iPhone OS.

Delete iDroid files

  1. ssh into your iPhone
    • Ubuntu users, the simplest way is to go to Places>Network and click on iPhone (or whatever you named your iPhone) and enter in your user credentials.
    • For those who insist on using terminal, (including OSX users) ssh root@, where is the ip of your iPhone, and enter the password (default is "Alpine")
    • Windows users, download a program called putty which is an ssh client for Windows. Once you have connected to your iPhone you can follow the terminal instructions below.
  2. Open up the directory /private/var/
    • Terminals users, cd /private/var/ (and make sure you are doing this into the terminal of your iPhone, and not your machine).
  3. Delete the following files: (For those who are UNIX illiterate, rm is the equivalent of del)
    • system.img
    • userdata.img
    • cache.img
    • android.img.gz
    • zImage
  4. You're done! Hopefully everything is working properly, if anything is broken or does not work, drop a line in our forum.
