After jailbreaking the iOS operating system, users sooner or later start having problems - the device starts to work slower, with errors, or does not turn on at all. This happens due to the installation of a large number of tweaks, and reinstalling iOS usually helps to fix the situation.
However, soon Apple will release iOS 7.1 and stop signing iOS 7.0.x, then SemiRestore, a utility for partial system recovery, will come in handy.
As it became known after the release of the fourth and fifth beta versions, in iOS 7.1 Apple developers will close the vulnerabilities that were used by Evad3rs hackers to hack the operating system through Evasi0n7. Thus, users who have restored the firmware in the usual way will no longer be able to jailbreak their devices until new jailbreak tools are released. SemiRestore for iOS 7 will help to save the day - the release of the updated utility has already been announced by the developer CoolStar.
At the same time, he announced that he would use the new OpenSSH connection protocol instead of AFC2, which was used in the version of the program for iOS 6.x. Thus, users will be able to safely use SemiRestore, which will help remove all installed tweaks and added repositories, clean Contacts, Photos, Music and other native applications, fix FaceTime and iMessage problems, reinstall Cydia, fix problems with device activation and frequent reboots, and etc. Presumably, SemiRestore will appear in the usual desktop format, and will also be ported to Linux; CoolStar has not announced a release date yet.
