What is SemiRestore10-Lite?
This new utility allows you to restores your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 10 to a clean state without losing your jailbreak.
Your device can go back to the stock firmware while still keeping the jailbreak.
It will remove all Cydia tweaks along with Coolstar’s Stashing for iOS 10. A better alternative to this tool is the OSRestoreX utility which does the same thing automatically but is less safer.
Basically, it cleans up your jailbreak. It will be just like new with nothing on it.
It works on-device meaning you don’t require a computer to use it. You just need MTerminal and Filza to use it.
Is SemiRestore10 Lite Safe to Install?
Yes, it is totally safe to install and run. It does not delete your applications, other data and Settings of your device.
I will do a full comparison between Cydia Eraser, OSRestoreX and this tool. This will allow you choose the tool that best suits you.
Remember, it is not an alternative for Cydia Eraser. Here’s the main difference between Cydia Eraser and SemiRestore10 Lite utilities.
- It cleans your device while still keeping Yalu jailbreak.
- Cydia Eraser completely restores your device by downloading new files from OTA.
- It works with iOS 10, 10.1, 10.1.1 and 10.2.

Enjoy your Clean Jailbreak!
All of your tweaks will be gone now. Enjoy your clean iOS 10 jailbreak! If you face any errors, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment below.
If MTerminal is not working for you, you can also install it through SSH on Windows or Mac. However, this method is a bit difficult and cumbersome.
