Semi-Restore is a new solution for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users who want to wipe their device clean without losing their jailbreak.
Created by CoolStar, the process will restore your device running iOS 5.0 through 6.1.2 to near stock condition. It's performed using a simple one click app that is available to download for Mac, Windows, and Ubuntu.
What this does do
● Uninstalls all Cydia packages
● Fixes host file issues
● Erases all user data
● Fixes permissions
● Fixes activation issues
● Fixes iMessage/Facetime issues
● Fixes Safe mode issues randomly appearing
● Reinstalls Cydia (in case it was deleted)
What this does not do
● Upgrade your iOS Version
● Downgrade your iOS Version
● Jailbreak your iOS Device
● Fix broken System Files
● SemiRestore supports Windows XP SP3 or higher, OS X 10.6 or higher, and Ubuntu 12.10 or higher (or the equivalent Linux).
● 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 or XCode 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.

Currently the iOS7 is in beta version which is available for only apple developers, but actually it is also for end-user for a try in the mean time.
iOS7 support from iPhone 4 up to iPhone 5, in order to update to iOS7 Beta we need to proceed these following points :
. Back up your iDevice
. Make sure you iDevice is running iOS 6.1.3 and already activated
. Download iOS7 Beta for your iDevices accordingly, you can find the link in this
. Plug your iDevice into computer and fire up your latest iTunes and click on :
- Windows : Shift + Update
- Mac : Option key + Update
. Do not use restore button in iTunes, use button update, because it is cannot be activated yet unless
you have developer ID. That's why we MUST update from iOS 6.1.3 to preserve the activation.
. iOS7 cannot be jailbroken yet, so decide your own decision.

It's currently possible update to iOS 7 without having your iPhone's UDID registered in a developer account.
We were first alerted to this by iClarified reader Will Peterson who performed the update on two iPhone 5s. We have tested and confirmed it working on the iPhone 4S, a brand new iPhone 5, and an additional iPhone 5.
To perform the update you must get a hold of the iOS 7 ipsw, press and hold the Option key (Shift for Windows) and click Update in iTunes. Select the iOS 7 ipsw from the popup window to install.
It's unclear why this is working. Only iPhone devices registered by developers are supposed to be able to install beta firmware. Perhaps Apple took down this check since its servers are being flooded at the moment.

This is a pre-release version of iOS 7 beta for iPhone and iPod touch. Devices updated to iOS 7 beta can not be restored to earlier versions of iOS.
