If you are jailbroken you may know that it is possible to restore iOS 9.1 jailbroken iPhone without losing jailbreak. CoolStar, the developer behind SemiRestore has just launched an updated version of his tool. With the update this popular tool now supports iOS 5 through iOS 9.1 that means you don’t have to worry about losing everything altogether if you do something wrong.
How To Restore iOS 9.1 Jailbroken Device And Don't Lose Jailbreak
If you have a jailbroken iOS 9 device, you’ll know how constant installing and reinstalling of tweaks, themes and apps can put an imprint on the device, with everything becoming slow and sluggish with time, and in need of a reset. Since SemiRestore 9 removes the jailbreak tweaks installed on your device, it can help in such cases.
Similar to another tool called Cydia Impactor by Saurik, SemiRestore will wipe everything on the device, seemingly restoring the jailbroken device to its stock settings. But there is the biggest difference between these two tools: Cydia Impactor also deletes the jailbreak, while SemiRestore erases everything relating to it except the jailbreak itself.
It is vital to note that you can not use SemiRestore as downgrade tool. It only lets you clear just about everything on your device, including apps, tweaks, media, photos, messages, etc, except for the jailbreak itself. It means that you don’t have to go through the jailbreak process again after running SemiRestore.
On the compatibility front, Semi-Restore works on iOS 5 all the way up to iOS 9.1. It requires just 5 to 10 minutes of your time, with OpenSSH being a strict requirement to be installed on your iOS device. Lastly, Semi-Restore is compatible to work with 64-bit Windows and Linux. There’s no support for OS X just yet, but we’re certain it may arrive soon in the future.
So if you have troubles with some tweaks installed you can easily restore iOS 9.1 jailbroken iPhone without losing jailbreak itself. It is highly recommended to download SemiRestore tool right away if you have a jailbroken device in hand.
