Semi-Restore is a new, fantastic way for restoring your iPhone, iPad, and iPod without losing your jailbreak.
The great application was created by CoolStar. This will restore your jailbroken iDevice running iOS 5.0 through 6.1.2 to a jailbroken, stock state. It’s a basic one click app that is available to download for Mac, Windows, and Ubuntu. Just like the famous evasi0n jailbreak.
This great application can:
● Uninstalls all user installed Cydia packages
● Resets host file issues
● Fixes iMessage/Facetime issues
● Fixes files and folder permissions
● Erases all user data, just like restoring with iTunes
● Fixes activation issues
● Fixes Safe mode issues randomly appearing
● Reinstalls Cydia
Semi-Restore supports Windows XP SP3 or higher, OS X 10.6 or higher, and Ubuntu 12.10 or higher (or the equivalent Linux).
Please remember there may be a better way to fix your current iOS problem. For example, to fix “Safe Mode” issues, you can just uninstall Mobile Substrate from Cydia.
Try not to use or touch your iOS device or anything to do with iTunes during the Semi-Restore.
Your device may respring or reboot several times during the Semi-Restore. This is perfectly normal, so don’t panic.
You can download Semi-Restore from this link.
As always, remember to backup your iOS device before attempting this, as it will try to wipe all your personal files and preferences.
