This Upcoming App Said To Allow For A Fresh Version Of Current Firmware

Probably this happend to you at least once. You have a jailbroken iPhone on a certain firmware, and it’s the last firmware that’s capable of being jailbroken. What happens if you need to restore it? In most cases, you will be forced up to the current firmware. The problem with doing this is that it causes you to lose your jailbreak.
But today we've got some interesting news, it looks like that there is an upcoming app claims to allow jailbreakers to refresh their devices with the firmware that’s currently on the device. For example, if you’re running iOS 6.1.2, you can clean the device and semi-restore to 6.1.2. It’s not a full restore, because doing so would force you to upgrade, but it might be the next best thing, especially if your device is having problems or is running slow.

Here are the requirements according to Semi-Restore’s website:
  • 5-10 minutes of your time!
  • A computer running Windows or Mac OS X
  • OpenSSH and APT 0.7 Strict (NOT THE LIB) installed on your device
  • An SSH client on your computer (USB version coming soon)
If the app truly coming, then this will be a very great news as you will not lose your jailbreak anymore..

Again, the Semi-Restore will only allow you to go to a fresh version of your current firmware. It won’t require any SHSH blobs or APTickets. If it works, this could be a big help for those of you who want a clean slate, yet still be able to maintain a jailbreak.
Are you excited right now and maybe wondering when the app will be released right ? Well until now the app still in beta at 60% completed. The app will be coming for the three platforms- Windows/Mac OS X and finally Linux.

Right now I hope these guys are not scamming and they are working on a valuable something, as usual we will keep you updated with anything new from them... Stay tuned and keep yourself updated with us..
