Restore to your current firmware
What's better Semi-Restore?
Better Semi-Restore is an app for jailbroken iOS with which you can restore to your current firmware without needing to update your device. This can be useful if you want to sell your device, if your device has become slow, your battery life is decreasing, or if you've misconfigured something.
Rewritten in Objective-C, way more checks for errors, more file backups, fixed not enough disk space bug, new design, progress bar, iOS 8 support.
Fixes for uncommon issues:
Stuck at "Initiating Restore"
The tweak failed to initiate the restore for some reason. If BSR has previously spent over a minute moving files, you can initiate the restore manually, in Settings, General, Reset, Erase All Content and Settings. If BSR completed suspiciously quickly, you can revert the changes by quitting BSR, re-opening it and installing Cydia.
The BSR app is not present after the restore process
Reboot your device once or twice.
Cydia is still there after restoring, without having selected "Reinstall Cydia" in BSR
Don't open Cydia, it will show errors and not work properly. Open BSR and select "Reinstall Cydia". After that Cydia should be working fine.
Warning (sort of): If you open BSR and there is no background image (black background), and you don't use a dynamic wallpaper on your home screen, do not use BSR. For some reason it is not root, and it will not work.
Confirmed working on the following configurations:
iPad Air 2, iOS 8.1, Pangu8; iPad mini 3, iOS 8.1.2, TaiG; iPhone 4, 7.1.2, Pangu; iPhone 5, 8.1, Unknown; iPhone 5s, 8.1.2, Unknown; iPhone 6, 8.1, Pangu8
