Jailbreak developer “CoolStar” has recently announced a new version of well-known jailbreak package, “SemiRestore”. It comes with “Lite” in the name which is different from the full version. simply, where you are accessed to process SemiRestore-Lite directly on the device. In fact, the updated version appears in the form of a Mobile Terminal to run without the Computer need. So let’s see how it is specially written to iOS 10.2 Jailbreak to put back your jailbroken device almost in the stock state.
SemiRestore Package you already know by now works from iOS 5 to iOS 9.1. And this update of Lite is the first successful approach for iOS 10. It is workable up to latest jailbreakable 10.2 firmware with fine support as to release notes. But opposed to the almost-known package, this does not require of a Windows, Mac or Linux PC help to process as this “Lite” update is workable through a mobile terminal. So you can now easily restore from iOS 10.2 jailbreak to iOS 10.2 stock but not losing jailbreak for the whole. In fact, it just a semi-restore attempt to give a stock-like feel on your device.
How SemiRestore-Lite work for iOS 10.2 Jailbreak Removing?
As you already aware, the tool leads you an almost stock-like state but not exactly removing Cydia. However, it will erase all Cydia apps and Tweaks on iOS 10, extensions, installed packages and all changes with Cydia. In fact, the tool is made for a kind of restore. For more fact, which applies for the changes in Cydia download but except the alterations in the file system. So with the SemiRestore-Lite download, you can stay on the same firmware even without losing the jailbreak completely. And this is considered a beneficial update for those who messed with Yalu 10.2 as the first experience in the jailbreak and find over tweaked with jailbreak.
What Makes Cydia impactor differ from Semi-Restore?
In words, both Cydia impactor download and semi-Restore works to bring you back to the stock state. But with the word “Semi”, it differs. Where Cydia impactor or Cydia Eraser works for the complete remove of jailbreak while this “SemiRestore” update only works for a certain extent of Cydia removing. However, for the identical factor, both these restore to the same firmware version with the possibility of getting re-jailbreak. But semiRestore is more preferable for jailbreakers to keep jailbreak features and stock features at the same time.
How to Process?
It works best to make your device to a fresh state. But as the package comes in a not-expectable supportive state, In warn you to take fine care. In fact, to head Lite package processing with no basic or technical knowledge is a risk.
Note: If the tool goes wrong due to any background fact, your device will be restored. As 10.2 no more an option by Apple signing, iOS 10.2.1 will force you to process. And 10.2.1 is currently with no Cydia Download confirmations. So preserving chance for iOS 10.2 jailbreak is at your risk
Unless you feel semiRestore-Lite for drastic, stay away from its use. So to make no mess in the jailbreak and apps to over tweak, follow my guide of Cydia Download for iOS 10-10.2 and pick only what makes worth downloading. But if the use of Lite for iOS 10.2 jailbreak is really necessary at your lengths, do it with good caution with no loss of jailbreak and chance of Cydia install.
As we still not find Cydia Eraser update to 10, Semi-Restore Lite is a reason cheer. And as CoolStar confirms, a full version of the semi-restore package could be soon given for the all versions so far runs with same “Lite” effect. But it will depend on how the community accepts this new change.
