Good news, The developer @Coolstar has updated semi-restore utility, the update include Compatible with all jailbroken iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini models running iOS 5.0 through iOS 9.1. For those not familiar with the application, Semi-Restore9 tool will let you restore the device to a fresh version of iOS without losing your jailbreak. This doesn’t mean it will completely restore your device, but it is the tool to get close to a clean install without updating your iDevice to the latest firmware. Currently Semi-Restore tool is available on Windows and Linux operating systems. While OS X version has not been released yet, Mac users can still use the tool on their computer by installing Ubuntu or Windows on their machines. While this is not ideal it will get the job done. We hope a native OS X version of the tool will be released soon.
Here are some of the details of this tool, you can download it from the link shared at the end of the post.
- SemiRestore supports Windows Vista 64 bit or higher.
- SemiRestore supports 64 Bit Linux (Ubuntu 14.04 or a higher equivilent distro).
- Windows users must have iTunes 12 (not the one for older video cards), and .NET 4.0 or higher installed.
- Linux users must have libimobiledevice, GTK 3, libusbmuxd-tools, and openssl installed (which should be by default).
- Linux users must read the README file
- There may be a better way to fix your current problem. For example, to fix “Safe Mode” issues, you can just uninstall Mobile Substrate from Cydia.
- Like any other restore, make sure you backup your data if you want it later.
- Avoid using your iOS device or anything related to iTunes during the Semi-Restore. Why not actually go outside?
- This process can not and does not repair broken system files! Avoid all Siri Ports, as they are not only illegal (except for Spire on 5.0.1) but they also create problems and may potentially break system files (even Spire can cause this).
- Your device will respring or reboot several times during the Semi-Restore. This is perfectly normal, so don’t panic.
