Previously only available for Windows and Linux, SemiRestore has now been released for Mac OS X.

The software claims to be able to “restore a jailbroken device to a clean version of the currently installed firmware, but still managing to honor the jailbreak liberation of the device.”

The linked article warns you that “the developer … has also issued an accompany [sic] 'no support' warning, meaning that it has been tested on two Hackintosh machines, and that he won’t offer support if it doesn’t work as intended.”

Gee, that sounds appealing! Where do I sign up? /s

But… if I were jailbroken, with terms like those, this is one piece of software I would steer clear from.

Maybe the Windows version is more reliable, since it’s been out longer?—something to keep in mind before you use this! :eek:
Have you ever used a Hackint0sh before? I have. If it works on a Hackint0sh, it'll work on a real Mac.

Actually, if you were a jailbreaker and had any interest whatsoever in retaining your jailbeak, you would use it if you needed to restore, just on the chance that it would work. What would you have to lose? It would definitely be worth a shot. If it didn't work, you could do a regular restore.

Never in my life. I'll take your word for it!

What's with the 0 in the middle of the word? Are you trying to sound 1337? :D
Binary. Hackers often use a 0 or 1 in their software names to replace a letter O or I. A large percentage of the jailbreaks over the years have had one of them in their names. For example, blackra1n and greenp0ison.

LOL, thanks, but I know how it works, hehe.

I was just humorously stating that apparently Napoleon is now trying to sound "elite" (1337) or "like a hacker" by suddenly starting to use 0s in place of his Os.

But I'm joking, of course. We all know Napoleon is elite!
