    These are instructions on how to wipe your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to near stock condition without losing your jailbreak using Semi-Restore for Windows.

    Before beginning make sure you do a backup of your device.

    **Until a fix is released, do NOT use SemiRestore if you installed afc2add.**


    Step One
    Create a Pwnage folder on your desktop. Download Semi-Restore from here and save it to the Pwnage folder you just created.

    *Note: If you have issues running Semi-Restore make sure you have Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable installed. You may also want to try Windows XP compatibility mode.

    Step Four
    When Semi-Restore launches click the OK button to continue past the welcome message.
